CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Miele's newest full-size series of vacuums, the Miele S8 vacuum cleaners, are now available from Best Vacuum in its stores in Chicago and Oak Park, IL, and online at BestVacuum.com.
Designed, engineered and built in Germany, the Miele S8 vacuum cleaner series is lighter, quieter and offers improved cleaning performance than previous Miele vacuums, according to Mark Davis, president of Best Vacuum. They include Miele-exclusive innovations such as "Dynamic Drive" wheels with integrated shock absorbers and inflated tires that absorb impact from grouted tile and thresholds, plus luxury touches such as three-dimensional felt bumpers to protect baseboards and even a model with a spotlight in the handle to better see while cleaning in dark areas.
All Miele S8 vacuum cleaner models share Miele's powerful "Vortex" motor, the AirClean Sealed System with HEPA filtration, and a new "skeleton construction" body that reduces the vacuum's weight while increasing the strength of its body. All models also feature a larger, easier-to-grab handle, foot-operated suction control panel and an extra-long cord with one-touch automatic rewind that helps give the vacuums an exceptionally wide 33-foot cleaning radius.
Currently, there are five Miele S8 vacuum cleaner models each with its own combination of features and accessories: Miele Alize, Miele Calima, Miele Kona, Miele Marin, and Miele UniQ.
The Miele Alize is recommended for bare floors and area rugs. It features Automatic suction control that self-adjusts for optimal performance, Dynamic Drive wheel suspension to cushion impact on all hard floors, Spotlight handle with bright LED light for better visibility, and AirTeq rug and floor tool.
The Miele Calima, recommended for bare floors, area rugs and very flat or looped carpet, features foot tap suction control with six settings, air powered "turbo" brush for carpeting and parquet twister floor brush for wood floors and tile.
The Miele Kona, with a height-adjustable power brush, parquet twister floor brush for wood and tile floors and six-speed suction control with foot-tap adjustment, is recommended for all types of rugs and carpets.
The Miele Marin offers a choice from three different power brushes to customize the machine for your home, as well as the parquet twister floor brush for wood and tile floors. It also features Automatic suction control that self-adjusts for optimal performance.
The Miele UniQ is the top-of-the-line S8 model. Suitable for all carpet and flooring, it features thumb-tip suction control in the handle with automatic setting for optimal performance, deluxe height-adjustable power brush with LED headlight and parquet floor brush for tile and wood floors.
In addition, the Miele UniQ includes the luxurious finishes and conveniences one expects from Miele's flagship vacuum cleaner: velvet 3-D bumper protector, velvet-lined tool compartment, chrome plated accents, lighted underbody and lighted tool docking slot. It also features an extended warranty: 10-year motor, 10-year body and 5-year all other non-wearing parts.
At this time, only two models, the Miele Alize and the Miele UniQ, are available for sale on the Web. The full line of Miele S8 vacuum cleaners is available only at local Miele dealer brick and mortar stores, including the Best Vacuum stores in Chicago's Lincoln Park and west suburban Oak Park, IL.
