If you are a person charged with the responsibility of keeping a home or office building clean, this information should prove very beneficial. It may be time to get one of the Miele vacuum cleaners available on the market and get rid of the old, worn out vacuum that you have been using.
With an extremely high rating for removing even the tiniest of dust particles, Miele vacuum cleaners provide a major health benefit in addition to the cleaning power provided. Health issues such as chronic bronchitis, asthma and premature death can often be linked to tiny particles of dust or allergens that are inhaled into the lungs. Those particles can even find their way into the blood stream.
The AirClean Sealed System in all Miele vacuum cleaners has a HEPA filter that collects and traps over 99.9 percent of particles that could potentially find their way into a person’s lungs. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that collecting and removing those harmful elements can definitely help improve the quality of life for every individual, particularly those at highest risk like children and the elderly.
The different models of Miele vacuum cleaners offer choices to fit the various preferences of each individual. For example, the S 5381 Leo canister model includes the Parquet Twister that allows the cleaning of wood, tile and other smooth surfaces with extreme care. Additionally, if a stick model vacuum cleaner or an upright model is preferred, Miele provides a wide variety of choices to help ensure that each person can have a model that suits his or her needs. Couple that with all the health benefits that Miele vacuum cleaners provide, and that is definitely a winning combination.

The Miele company was founded in 1899 by Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann in Germany and remains to this day owned and operated by their families. The company makes appliances for domestic and commercial use and adheres to the highest standards. No where else is this more obvious than in Miele vacuum cleaners.
Miele vacuums come in canister, stick and upright forms. They use Air Clean or HEPA filters. HEPA, or High Efficiency Particular Air filters catch and hold the tiniest particles, as small as .3 of a micron. The Active Air Clean Filter also uses charcoal to remove odors. The filters of Miele vacuums keep the indoor air clean and fresh.
A good selection of Miele vacuums are canisters. One is the S 5981 Capricorn. The sleek canister is constructed to give the highest protection to the quality of indoor air. It has a 1200 watt trademarked “Vortex Motor System” and HEPA and premotor filters. It holds a 4.76 Air Clean dustbag. The S 5981 is quiet, has an indicator that tells the customer when to replace the bag and shuts off if it overheats. It’s good for carpets, area rugs and smooth surfaces.
Like other Miele vacuums, the S 7260 Cat & Dog upright has the 1200 watt Vortex Motor System. It also has a brush roller than runs at 4,800 revolutions per minute and two motors, one of which has a control for the machine’s electro brush. It also has an Air Clean filter and uses a 5.45 quart Air Clean dustbag. The S 7260 can be used under furniture with a low clearance and has an L.E.D headlamp for hard to see areas.
Stick vacuums are usually thought of as good for light work, but the S 163 Upright has a powerhouse 1000 watt motor and an equally powerfully airflow. It comes with a floor tool for both carpeted and uncarpeted floors, and a wand. The customer can also purchase tools for upholstery and a nozzle for crevice work.

Using Gutter Guards from GutterBrush can save individuals time and money. During routine home maintenance, individuals must regularly climb up to the roof and clean out the rain gutters to ensure a smooth path for rain to move through. This prevents unnecessary clogging, blockage, and water damage that can occur if rain water gets stuck inside the rain gutters for long periods. To prevent clogging and water damage, individuals can install GutterBrush Gutter Guards to protect their rain gutters.
Shaped like a rounded brush with firm bristles, GutterBrush Gutter Guards sit firmly between the walls of rain gutters to form flexible seals that block out larger pieces of debris like fallen leaves or garbage kicked up by the wind. This kind of debris gathers in rain gutters over time, forcing homeowners to regularly clean out the gutters to prevent debris blockage and water damage.
GutterBrush Gutter Guards work to prevent blockage, brushing off most leaves and garbage on contact and trapping the rest inside. Because of the guards’ firm bristles, even most pine needles and maple seeds will not make it through to the rain gutters, deteriorating over time after prolonged exposure to the sun and keeping gutters clear for the flow of rain.
Traditional leaf guards can be very expensive. Individuals can spend thousands of dollars on unsightly leaf guards that do not protect gutters very well and can be unsightly to look at from the ground. GutterBrush Gutter Guards sit so snugly inside the gutters that individuals will not see them from the ground or street, working effectively but without ever imposing on the eyes. Furthermore, they are cheaper. With professional estimation and installation, individuals will pay much less for Gutter Guards than they would for traditional leaf guards, saving time, money, and effort spent cleaning and repairing clogged gutters.

Perhaps the one area that people neglect most where their homes are concerned is guttering. It is far too easy to get caught up in thinking about other features such as paint and furniture while damage is being done by excess water. If water is not directed away from the foundation of a structure, the water can cause extensive corrosion. Properly installed guttering with gutter guards can help eliminate that problem.
In the past, there were not nearly as many choices available in guttering as there are today. Believe it or not, seamless guttering with gutter guards is even available in copper color. Since there are over 30 colors to choose from, it is not hard for a home or business owner to find one that perfectly matches the style of an existing structure.
When gutter guards are installed on existing or new guttering, the guards help prevent the problem of clogged gutters. If leaves and storm water debris are allowed to accumulate in gutters without the benefit of gutter guards, the result can be severe. The debris is capable of totally blocking the flow of water that should be funneled away from the building. When this happens, water often begins to overflow from the guttering and causes damage to roofs, wood, and the ground below.
Properly installed gutters can increase the value of a home or office building by adding to the aesthetic aspect as well as the functional aspect. Without a doubt, adding guttering that includes gutter guards is a quality decision that will reap huge rewards.

People living in heavily wooded areas often dread the autumn season. While the typical rake leafing jobs present enough work to do on a Saturday morning, homeowners often must deal with gutters full of leaves and other debris because they haven’t been protected by GutterBrush gutter covers. Take Alissa, who after one major thunderstorm got so fed up with overflowing gutters that created standing water problems and flooded the basement that she hired a tree service to remove the three mature trees that stood in her backyard. “I cleaned those gutters out every other week in the fall,” she said, “but anytime we get a bad rain I ended up having to pump the basement because the gutters overflowed instead of shuttling the water away from the house like it was designed.” It wasn’t until after one of the workers had finished cutting down a tree that he told her about his own GutterBrush gutter covers. She admits she was concerned about the cost. The gutters and guards she’d already installed to engineer drainage away from the home and toward her garden had been expensive. She also didn’t think that the GutterBrush gutter covers would work any better. “But when the next thunderstorm came and my gutters still clogged I got a little desperate.”
A clogged gutter can create serious drainage problems and overflowing water during storms. But those protected by the GutterBrush gutter covers prevent debris from entering the gutter while allowing a free flow of water through the gutter system so that the water drains where it is supposed to drain. The result is hassle-free gutters and the solution to Alissa’s problem. Since installing the GutterBrush gutter covers, she has checked on the gutters less and less. “They don’t overflow anymore,” She explains with a smile. “I haven’t had to pump water from my basement in a year!”

It’s one of those lazy fall Saturday afternoons. The neighborhood is alive with children playing football in the streets and their parents busily raking the leaves into a pile like there’s no tomorrow. The smell of burning leaves fill the air. Leaves slowly depart from the branches like snowflakes falling from the sky, and into…gutters. Cleaning gutters has become one October pastime that most homeowners could do without.
Cleaning gutters takes a lot of time, hard work, and no hang-ups with getting a little dirt under the fingernails. The first precautions one must take when cleaning gutters is to wear gloves at all times. This offers protection from any dirt, debris, or other harmful foreign substance that may come into contact with the skin. Next, a beneficial tool to remove the leaves with is a trowel, which is shaped like an elongated diamond. One last essential is a ladder, for gutters that seem to reach the heavenly realm. It is a very intimidating feeling taking those first few steps up the ladder, and reaching the top offers no sudden relief. The top of the ladder feels weightless, and the danger of falling back first into the hedges below increases by the minute. Using the trowel, the homeowner can begin shoveling all the excess leaves out of the gutter like shoveling snow off a sidewalk. Several hours later, the exhausted homeowner looks at the emptied gutter with a gleam in his eye and wonders why he couldn’t just pay one of the neighborhood kids to do it.
Following the aforementioned steps can ensure a safe and productive day of cleaning gutters. The proud homeowner can rest assured knowing that all of these safety guidelines were met. He then ponders the possiblility that next month he will have to do it all over again.

Keeping gutters clean can be a chore. Homeowners constantly need to put on their gloves, climb up to the roof, and scoop out the dirt, leaves, and debris that gather in gutters over time to keep them clean and functional.

GutterBrush gutter guards work by providing stiff but flexible inserts that sit snugly in gutters. Shaped like firm bristle brushes, they will keep leaves and garbage out by bouncing them off and eliminating clogs.
