Miele vacuum cleaner quality tests

Highest Miele quality for a long service life

The motor endurance test: so long-lasting!

We demand top performance from our vacuum cleaners from the first day to the last: Miele motors must demonstrate their quality during an intense endurance test including constantly switching them on and off.

The jamb/threshold test: exceptionally robust!

In real life a Miele vacuum cleaner must endure many door thresholds and impacts – in this test 16,500 times in a row. This is where Miele casings and swivel castors prove their resilience.

The cable rewind test: very reliable!

The mains cable reels are unwound and rewound more than 10,000 times in our test centres. Only then are we satisfied – and completely certain – that everything will also work perfectly for you in your home.

The hose test: extremely resilient!

Miele suction hoses are twisted, flexed and stretched with a 5 kg weight 120,000 times in the laboratory. You can pull your Miele vacuum cleaner behind you without a worry.

The floorhead test: very hard-wearing!

A Miele floorhead must cover a distance of 2,000 km on various floor coverings – the same distance as Berlin to Paris and back. In the process it also crosses a carpeted door threshold 60,000 times.

The handle test: simply indestructible!

A 5 kg weight is attached to a Miele vacuum cleaner handle and raised and lowered 120,000 times. The handle must withstand this strain completely damage-free.
