Miele SEB 217-3 Electro Floorbrush Details
The Miele SEB 217-3 Electro Floorbrush is a slim power nozzle that does an amazing job of cleaning every type of surface from medium pile carpeting to bare, hard floor. Its design allows it to glide over carpets. The brush roll floats to adjust to any bumps on the surface.
The floorbrush is also equipped with small rubber wheels to help you move the vacuum brush around. The wheels also prevent scratches on your hard floors.
One problem that many vacuum cleaner owners encounter is their vacuum nozzle sealing onto the surface that they are cleaning. Miele addressed this problem by adding air vents on top of the accessory. This improves the airflow and prevents the vacuum cleaner’s attachment from latching onto the carpet or bare floor.
However, because of the considerable suction power, and lack of height adjustment features, the brush can still lock onto deep pile carpets.
The body of the brush is made of durable plastic and only weighs 3.19 pounds. Its 10 ¼-inch motor-driven roller brush makes vacuuming large areas less tiring. Plus, it is super easy to maneuver because of its light weight, floating brush roll, and swivel neck design.
You won’t feel too fatigued even after vacuuming several rooms in one go.
