Miele produces a wide variety of home products, including wine storage, dishwashers, coffee makers, microwave ovens and vacuum cleaners. Available in a variety of models, Miele vacuums bear the Good Housekeeping seal and can be purchased online or in select appliance or department stores. Cleaning a Miele vacuum on a regular basis will help ensure proper performance and suction and may even extend the life of the vacuum cleaner. Always unplug and turn off the vacuum cleaner prior to performing any cleaning or maintenance tasks.
