German Vacuum Cleaner Brands

by Zack 7. December 2013 09:04

When it comes to the quality of a vacuum cleaner, many consumers begin their search by looking into the product's country of origin.  After research has been properly conducted, it is highly likely that two of the brands remaining will be Miele and SEBO.  Each of these brands are German manufactured and pride themselves in offering quality vacuum cleaners and replacement parts to new and existing customers.  When it comes to German vacuum cleaner brands, SEBO and Miele tend to be the most well known and allow for their products to speak for themselves.  Wessel-Werk is another vacuum brand that is manufactured in Germany which also has gained much notoriety in the industry.  Their high quality attachments and power nozzles offer the optimal performance from the vacuums they are used on.

SEBO was founded in 1978 by a group of engineers who sought to make a vacuum that was not only efficient and high performing for the consumer, but also convenient.  This German vacuum brand was the first vacuum manufacturer to offer many features that should not be taken for granted when considering a new vacuum for your home or business.   Some of these features include an integrated hose and wand on their upright vacuums, as well as a clutch protection which prevents damage to the brushroll and motor if something happens to become lodged in the vacuum head.  Other features of the SEBO vacuum cleaners include electrostatic microfilters, S-class filtration and a soft bumper around the canister vacuums which helps to prevent damage to furniture and walls.

Miele was founded in 1899 and has since worked to become one of the most common household names that is synonymous with quality products.  They began producing vacuum cleaners in 1927 and the rest was history.  Miele currently has ten active factories in Germany where the majority of the workforce is involved with industrial engineering and production.  Miele vacuum cleaners commonly come with HEPA filtration which is highly recommended for allergy and asthma sufferers, and come standard with a 1200 Watt Miele Vortex motor.  Their one-of-a-kind German manufactured motor powers their vacuum cleaners which are some of the most versatile machines available today.  Miele canister vacuums and upright vacuums are great for all surfaces.

German vacuum brands take pride in their engineering and the quality of the product whereas other brands, that are primarily manufactured in parts of Asia, focus more on quantity over quality.  While SEBO and Miele tend to be in the spotlight in terms of the German vacuum manufacturers, other high quality brands such as Wessel-Werk and Vorwerk are also made in Germany, and also have great engineering credentials.  When looking for a new vacuum cleaner, make sure to make an informed decision and consider the engineering that goes into the product before you pull the trigger on something you may regret down the road.

Miele Reveals Upgraded HA 30/50 HEPA Filter

by Matt 26. November 2013 09:57

Miele is stepping up their filter game with their upgraded HA 30/50 HEPA vacuum filter. Their revamped design is Class 13 HEPA certified, which means that these filters will now remove 99.95% of allergens and asthma-causing particles that are 0.3 microns and larger. This is a 0.45% upgrade from the 99.5% efficiency of their old design. That may not seem like much of an upgrade, but homeowners that suffer from bad allergies or asthma will notice an immediate difference in filter performance. Also, because European standards are particularly stringent regarding filtration—especially HEPA filtration, a 0.45% increase is much more significant than it seems. Miele has always strived to meet and beat those tough standards, and with their upgraded HEPA filtration, they are certainly offering some of the best—if not the best HEPA filters on the market.

Significant testing was needed to accomplish this filtration upgrade. The superior suction power of Miele vacuums requires a filter that is able to handle it. Filters that do not allow for maximum airflow means that some absorbed particles will not be able to pass through the filter and instead we be forced out of the sides of the vacuum because of back pressure. In other words, a filter that cannot support its machine’s airflow will lose a large amount of particulate allergens into the air. Miele’s ingenious new filter design has been thoroughly tested for maximum efficiency and will allow the powerful suction of the Miele vacuum to operate unencumbered.

But aside from being an efficient filter that provides superior filtration, the new HA-30/50 is also a very user-friendly. Their new design features a touch-activated time strip, which will tell the user when the active material has expired and when the HEPA filter needs to be replaced. The lifespan of the HEPA filter remains the same—40 hours of run time, or about 12 months for the average homeowner, but thankfully this exciting new feature takes out all of the guess work.

And remember, this upgraded in Miele’s HEPA filter technology will affect both the Miele HA 30 filter and the Miele HA 50 filter, so regardless of which Miele vacuum you have—canister or upright, you’ll be able to take advantage of Miele’s vast upgrade in HEPA filtration!

Pet Vacuums

by Matt 21. May 2013 06:43

Having pets is a great experience and serves a number of incredible purposes; pets have been shown to increase quality of life, can provide incomparable aid to disabled persons, will guard a home or family with unquestioning loyalty, and will make any time spent at home unmistakably more fun and fulfilling. However, with almost any pet comes the daunting responsibility of cleaning up after them, which is often the most underestimated element of pet ownership, especially when taking into consideration the hard truth that most of what needs to be cleaned is invisible and can’t be done with your standard vacuum cleaner or cleaning spray. Luckily, a number of products in the field of homecare are revolutionizing cleaning methods that deal directly with pets, and eVacuumStore.com has taken on the task of providing a comprehensive guide and marketplace for people interested in these units.

What most prospective pet owners don’t realize is that the soiled carpets, clumps of shedding hair, and “surprises” on the kitchen floor are only the beginning of the real messes that pets unleash upon their once-spotless homes. Most vacuum cleaners won’t handle large volumes of pet hair and they will clog the agitator brushes or be missed completely, rendering most machines useless against pets. Furthermore, what makes a vacuum cleaner truly armed against pet messes and even the mere presence of a pet with hair is high filtration. Pets, as much as they may remind us of ourselves, have a different biological makeup than humans, and their natural scent and dander will irritate the respiration, allergies, and skin of many people, even those who consider themselves immune to these pet byproducts. Therefore, what many contemporary vacuum cleaner designs are utilizing are a dual-threat system against all these concerns.

Taking advantage of the user-friendly search-narrowing options, anybody in need of a vacuum for pets will have a wide variety of options in mere seconds. For starters, eVacuumStore notes that Eureka, known for their affordable residential upright vacuums, has released a number of machines that were intended for cleaning up after pets from their very conception. With HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Filtration and the state-of-the-art Power Paw tool, the Eureka Pet Expert vacuum cleaner is just one of their many pet-specific models. The Power Paw tool uses advanced technology to remove pet hair from cushions and other upholstery, the high-power agitator brush reaches deep into the carpet to eliminate hair, allergens, scents, and dander, and the HEPA Filtration keeps the microscopic particles from re-entering the air in the home. By capturing all the dander and allergens deep in the carpets, and preventing them from re-entering the air, this Eureka Pet Vacuum literally removes any evidence of your pet being in the home, aside from the pet itself!

Top 5 Vacuum Cleaner Brands According to eVacuumStore.com

by Zack 17. February 2013 06:33

With such an abundance of vacuum cleaner brands making a name for themselves, it can sometimes be difficult to choose which one is ideal for your specific living or business conditions.  Through the oftentimes overwhelming veil that is created by the cleaning industry, how is one to know which brand to choose?  Well fear not!  A list of the five best brands of vacuums has been compiled, in no particular order, to help alleviate the stress that can occasionally be associated when searching for the newest addition to your cleaning arsenal.

The first brand worth a notable mention is Miele.  Miele is a German based company that strives to provide consumers with the highest quality imaginable in terms of their upright and canister vacuum cleaners.  With over 100 years of experience in the field, it's obvious that they have applied their innovation and ingenuity to their machines, making them as consumer-friendly as possible.  Sealed HEPA filtration, durable design, light  weight, and overall silence are some of the features that help to separate Miele from the rest of the competition.  This brand has divided their vacuum cleaners into various series: the S2, S5, S6, S7 and S8 series.  The S7 series is the only series of Miele vacuum cleaners that is not canister type.  This particular series contains Miele upright vacuum cleaners, that are considered to be the best on the market today.  Similarly, the S8 line is considered to contain the highest quality canister vacuums and is also the newest series of the Miele vacuums.

Next on the list is the world-renowned brand. Electrolux.  As one of the most common household names for close to a century, Electrolux has created a name and fan base for themselves that seems to be insurmountable.  Considered to be the standard for canister, upright and central vacuums alike, this brand provides a certain quality of cleaning performance and filtration that leaves homes cleaner and fresher than they have ever been before.  From their humble beginnings with canister vacuums like the Model V and Model L, to their undeniable success with the Electrolux central vacuum systems like the PU3650 and PU3900, this brand is certain to provide you with one of the greatest ranges of machines available today.

The list of top five vacuum brands would not be complete without yet another German manufactured brand gracing its presence.  SEBO has been dropping the jaws of consumers for close to forty years due to their innovative design, causing their canister and upright vacuum cleaners to be considered the best pet vacuum around.  In fact, SEBO vacuum cleaners were some the first to have the automatic shut-off function when something gets caught in the brushroll.  This feature is ideal for pet owners, as well as any home or business owner interested in keeping their home/business and vacuum in optimum condition.

Another brand that simply cannot be overlooked when considering a new sweeper is Panasonic.  Oftentimes this brand name is associated with quality electronics, however the quality of the bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners available are definitely worth mentioning.   HEPA filtration is a standard among the majority of upright Panasonic vacuum cleaners offered by this brand which helps to guarantee that you and your family are breathing only the cleanest air imaginable; and with the option of bagged or bagless, you're sure to find a machine to suit your specific needs.  In addition to their diverse array of upright  vacuum cleaners, Panasonic canister vacuums provide one of the most versatile cleaning experiences of any brand.  Similar to the upright models, these canister style vacuums primarily operate using HEPA filtration but additionaly utilize OptiFlow technology.  This allows for a consistent flow of air in and out of the machine even when vacum vacuum bag becomes full.

Last , but certainly not least, on the list is Kirby.  This brand has been an established company for over a century and has since obtained plenty of experience with the competitive nature that is the vacuum industry.  Kirby vacuums are generally sold door to door and are made out of aluminum which makes them one of the most durable vacuum cleaners available.  Due to their aluminum bodies, these vacuums are projected to last consumers, smart enough to own one, well over thiry years.  This being the case, the only additional time and money that needs to be spent is maintaining the sweeper, which is much cheaper when compared to purchasing a new one every few years. Kirby vacuum bags are readily available for all models including the Ultimate G, the G4, G5 and G6, as well as the earlier models such as Generation 3.  Newer models such as the Kirby Sentria are also easy to obtain vacuum cleaner bags for.  Similar to the availability of the bags, Kirby vacuum parts such as brushrolls, hoses, belts and attachments are easy to come by and work together to keep your machine lasting a lifetime.
