No daily routine can be as tough as a Miele product test: Before Miele vacuum cleaners go into production they must withstand extreme stress in our test laboratory.
The hose test: So resilient!
Miele suction hoses are twisted, flexed and stretched with a 11 lb weight 120,000 times in the laboratory. You can pull your Miele vacuum cleaner along behind you without giving it a second thought. You can pull your Miele vacuum cleaner along behind you without giving it a second thought.
The motor endurance test: So long-lasting!
We demand top performance from our vacuum cleaners from the first to the last day: Miele motors must demonstrate their quality during an intense endurance test including constantly switching them on and off.
The jamb-and-threshold test: So 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 wire rewind test: So reliable!
"Miele mains wires are unwound and rewound again more than 10,000 times in our test apparatus." Only then are we satisfied – and completely sure that everything will also work perfectly for you in your home.
The floorhead test: So durable!
A Miele floorhead must cover a distance of 1243 miles on various floor coverings – that is as far as from Berlin to Paris and back. In the process it climbs over a carpet-covered door threshold 60,000 times.
The handle test: So sturdy!
Miele vacuum cleaners' handles are loaded with 11 lb weights and then raised and lowered 120,000 times. The handle must withstand the permanent effect of being lifted without being damaged. The handle must withstand the permanent effect of being lifted without being damaged.
