You’re probably not in the business of purchasing a cleaner that’s just going to give you more headaches and frustrations.
Aside from the many different brands and models available in the market, you also need to choose carefully so that you end up with one that actually satisfies your needs.
I stumbled upon the Miele S6270 Quartz Canister Vacuum Cleaner while I was looking for a replacement for one of my old, rusty machines. Although it was moderately priced, I was hesitant at first to buy it because I had the perception that high-quality vacuum cleaners should come with a high price tag.
After reviewing all my options and reading some mixed reviews, I decided to give it a try and I quickly found out that I had scored one of the best deals because of its utilitarian features:
- Multilayer Filtration System – The Miele S6270 Quartz comes with the Super Air Clean system in which the air passes through high filtration Air Clean Bag and a secondary electrostatic filter. This means that with good airflow, I can easily capture minute particles around the house. Furthermore, this advanced filtration system meets the stringent specifications of the HEPA, which is fantastic.
- Miele Sealed System – The design of the S6270 allows air to flow through the hose and nozzle right into the dust bag. With my old vacuum, picking up dog hair, debris and other fine dirt particles was a messy job because the vacuum’s exhaust would just blow it out. The advanced Miele Sealed System eliminated this problem because the high filtration exhaust seals in the collected dust.
- Air Clean Dust Bag – It was a frustrating job cleaning up because we have 3 dogs, which made dog hair a common occurrence around my household. With Miele’s Air Clean Dust bag system, more particles of tiny allergens are retained and locked inside, compared to conventional dust bags. Furthermore, this advanced dust bag technology uses high quality, tear-proof materials, holding collected dust in place even when it’s full.
- Optional High Efficiency Filters – My son is prone to dust-induced allergies that’s the main reason why I find this feature especially helpful. The Miele S6270 comes with efficient filters specially designed for pet lovers like me. I have the option to use this specialized filter with thick layer of activated charcoal that traps unpleasant odors more effectively.
Product Low Downs
Despite all the amazing features, I found one minor problem – and is was how quickly the dust bags needed to be replaced. The dust bags could actually last for about two full house vacuuming sessions, so it wasn’t a super big issue. It was more like a minor annoyance.
Overall, the unit itself is reasonably clear and easy to operate as the wheels turns nimbly and respond fairly to any movement you direct at it. Furthermore, it cleans quietly and efficiently.
Although the Miele Quartz S6270 is a bit more expensive than other cleaners, it’s one heck of a powerful machine, it provides excellent value for your money, and it’s no doubt one of the best vacuums available for hardwood floors.
