Miele Complete C2 Hard Floor Vacuum Cleaner Introduction
Miele has been designing and manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner in 1927 and celebrated their 100th Anniversary in June of 1999. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and performance. The Miele C2 Hard Floor vacuum, with its beautiful Tech Blue finish, reflects their commitment to designing and manufacturing outstanding vacuum cleaners. As with all Miele products, all its advanced technology and incredible power is harnessed within a truly beautiful work of art. You may even be tempted to purchase a Miele Complete C2 Hard Floor vacuum cleaner on its looks alone.
Multi-Layer Filtration System
The Miele Complete C2 Hard Floor vacuum cleaner uses a multi-layer filtration system which increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes through their high filtration Multi-Layer HyClean Bag and a secondary electrostatic filter before reaching the special exhaust filter. Each layer of filtration captures more particles as the air passes through them. Ideally, multi-layer filtration enhances performance by ensuring good air flow through the system. It prevents large particles from reaching and blocking the exhaust filter, saving it for critical particle retention.
The Miele C2 Hard Floor canister vacuum cleaner comes standard with their Super Air Clean exhaust filter for those desiring outstanding filtration but who do not have dust related sensitivities which require the level of filtration which meets the stringent HEPA specification.
In a study conducted by the Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the University of Virginia, the Miele vacuum cleaner with the Super Air Clean filter was tested, along with eight other leading brands, to determine if vacuum cleaner efficiency affects the level of airborne allergens commonly found in the home, such as pet dander and dust mite feces. The results indicate that some vacuum cleaners substantially increase allergens in the air. The study proved Miele captures virtually all the dust, dirt and allergens you pick up, improving the quality of the air you breathe. Newer optional Certified HEPA filters provide even greater filtration, producing net filtration which meets the stringent HEPA specification.
The Miele Sealed System
Using the Miele Complete C2 Hard Floor canister vacuum differs from your typical home vacuum cleaner because of its special high filtration capabilities and its Sealed System. This means that the sub-micrometer dust you pick up actually reaches the high filtration exhaust filter and is not blown out through minute cracks in the case or around the exhaust filter like many competing cleaners with high filtration exhaust filters.
Vacuum cleaners are designed so that air flows through the nozzle and hose into the dustbag, and then through any additional filters before leaving the machine at the exhaust. Filters capable of achieving sub-micrometer filtration are important but equally important is how much of the air flow containing these allergens, etc. actually passes through the filters to be cleaned by them. With the Miele Sealed System you can rest assured that all the air flow passes through and is filtered by the Super Air Clean or optional Active Certified HEPA or Active Air Clean exhaust filters. Having a completely sealed system also helps improve suction by ensuring that all air flow through the motor is also pulled through the hose and attachments, not entering through unsealed joints in the case, wands and attachments.
High Performance AirClean Dustbag
Miele's revolutionary new AirClean dustbag offers unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele Calima canister vacuum cleaner. First and foremost, the unique new material which composes AirClean dustbags has made significant progress in the quality of filtration: Thanks to its intricate web of three-ply random-spun polymer fibers, far more tiny particles and allergens are retained than with conventional dustbags. This alone accounts for a reduction in dust emissions from the dustbag of up to 50%, based on levels which were already extremely low. Therefore, this vacuum's secondary filter and high efficiency exhaust filter will be kept cleaner, providing outstanding cleaning performance with reduced resistance to the air flow.
The enhanced composition of AirClean virtually eliminates clogging, improving cleaning performance even further. This material captures millions of tiny dust particles and holds them tight within its fibers, keeping the pores of the dustbag open longer. As a result, this Miele vacuum cleaner retains its excellent cleaning performance, even when the dustbag is full. This special polymer material also makes the dustbag practically tear-proof. The risk of damage caused by sharp, pointed objects in the bag is now a thing of the past.
Optional High Efficiency Filters
For those with dust related allergies or asthma, Miele has an optional Certified HEPA Filter that meets the stringent HEPA 13 specification. It has been proven to retain over 99.99% of dust particles. It only needs to be replaced approximately once a year. A special "Timestrip" provides a visual indication of when the filter should be replaced. Packaged in a white case, the SF-HA 50 HEPA AirClean filter takes clean air to an even higher level. It replaces the former SF-AH 50 HEPA filter in a light blue case which meets the "HEPA 12" specification. When purchasing your new Miele from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an outstanding allergy vacuum with extremely low dust emissions by adding the Active Certified HEPA filter for only $49.95.
Miele even has a special filter designed for the pet lovers in our world. Their Active AirClean Filter features a thick layer of Activated Charcoal sandwiched between two Super AirClean filters for outstanding odor trapping abilities. It's great for cat & dog owners. When purchasing your new Miele from Ristenbatt Vacuum Cleaner Service, turn it into an allergy vacuum with very low dust and odor emissions by adding the Active AirClean filter for only $39.95.
The optional HEPA AirClean Filter or the Active AirClean Filter can be used instead of the Super AirClean exhaust filter which comes standard in the Miele C2 Hard Floor canister vacuums. The Super AirClean filter removes nearly 94% of particles as small as 0.3 µm, providing very clean exhausted air for those who don't have special filtration needs.
Efficient Miele Vortex Suction Motor
The powerful 1200 Watt, Miele Vortex suction motor produces plenty of suction for cleaning your home. This high performance motor has fan parts that are aerodynamically designed with no parallel surfaces and nine long fan scoops compared to the typical six shorter ones. These scoops are quite wide near the hub of the fan and become more narrow toward the outer edge similar to that of a jet engine compressor. This single stage "compressor design" optimizes the air flow and increases the overall motor efficiency. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings, well balanced motor parts, enhanced motor suspension and lining of the motor housing, the Miele C2 Hard Floor vacuum will perform quietly for many years. To learn more about this outstanding motor, see our article on the Powerful Miele Vortex Motor.
Electronic Motor Speed Control
The Complete C2 Hard Floor vacuum is also equipped with six different motor speed settings which adjusts the air flow to over 150 CFM, giving you complete control when you clean. The electronic speed control dial on the vacuum enables you to easily select the proper amount of power for cleaning anything from draperies to medium height carpeting. Reducing the suction prevents curtains, upholstery or area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.
This Miele vacuum has special sound insulation which makes it particularly quiet. The "Silence Setting" combines the lowest noise level with the ideal power level for the most efficient cleaning results. When operating at this level the vacuum is actually quieter than a pot of boiling water. Now that is quiet!
Option to Upgrade to the Deluxe Hose Handle
When purchasing your new Miele C2 Hard Floor vacuum from Ristenbatt Vacuum, make it even more user friendly by upgrading to Miele's Deluxe Hose Handle. The thinner handle located above the hose makes it easier to hold, especially for smaller hands. Its soft top grip and the way it lays nicely in your hand make it even more comfortable. With the hose attached closer to the wand or cleaning nozzle this Deluxe Hose Handle provides superior flexability which you'll really appreciate when working in fairly tight areas. A slight swivel built into the handle enhances its maneuverability as well.
The special upgrade price of $39.95 is only available at the time when you purchase this vacuum. Check this option's box on the vacuum cleaner's order form to receive the special upgrade price. If purchased separately the Deluxe Hose Handle would sell for $69.95.
Versatile Stainless Steel Telescopic Wand
The stainless steel telescopic wand on the Complete C2 Hard Floor vacuum cleaners can be adjusted to match your individual stature. For storage, it collapses to about half height to save storage space. It is well sealed at all joints to maintain Miele's outstanding performance. This is a good example of how Miele goes to great lengths, even with small details, to ensure the quality, performance and beauty of their products.
Deluxe AirTeQ Combination Floor Nozzle
This Miele vacuum is packaged with the SBD 285-3 AirTeQ Rug and Bare Floor Tool which works well on bare floors as well as low nap carpets. For even better performance on carpet, consider a Miele with turbobrush or powerbrush since they have powered revolving brush rolls.
This deluxe combination tool has a top mounted lever to switch between carpets and bare floors. For bare floors brush strips long the front back and sides pop out to provide non-scratching brushing action. Notches along the front allow dirt to easily enter the nozzle. For carpets and rugs, the brush strip is recessed, allowing the channeled steel sole plate to contact the carpet, pulling air through the nap to clean it. The elbow has a long tab which can hold this nozzle securely in the parking slots on the sides and back of this vacuum when you pause while cleaning.
Deluxe Parquet Twister Floor Brush
This Miele vacuum is also packaged with the 14" wide SBB 400-3 Parquet Twister XL Floor Brush which is specifically designed for cleaning Parquet floors although it works very nicely on all non-carpeted floors. It is 12" wide having long, very soft bristles completely around its perimeter. Notches along the front allow dirt to easily enter the nozzle. The wand connector elbow has a 2-way swivel which enables the brush to be pivoted (twisted) as the wand is twisted side to side. It is very agile, enabling it to even slide sideways between close furniture. It also has a long tab on its elbow for parking it like on the combination floor nozzle.
Convenient Covered Attachment Storage
The Miele Complete C2 Hard Floor vacuum carries its three small attachments conveniently tucked away in the covered tool storage on the main unit where they are always easily accessible. This design reduces the risk of bumping these attachments, accidentally knocking them from the vacuum cleaner. The dusting brush has soft, natural hair bristles which will not curl and mat like synthetic ones tend to do. The upholstery nozzle has two red strips which are like the "magic lint brushes", capturing the lint, hairs and threads and then cleaning themselves on the reverse stroke.
All Three Wheels Swivel 360°
The Miele C2 Hard Floor vacuum cleaners are designed to track nicely behind you as you pull them by the hose. They are equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360° making them very easy to maneuver and very stable. Going over electrical cords, door thresholds and around furniture is a breeze. Since it can be moved in any direction, being able to easily push it out of your path when working near the machine is an added convenience.
