If you or a family member suffers from respiratory problems, you will appreciate the importance of a high quality filtration system. Fine particle and dust exposure can aggravate asthma, allergies and bronchitis.

The Miele S 7580 Premium Class upright offers a trademarked Original Sealed System. This design requires that each individual compartment of the system be sealed with one continuous rubber gasket. This prevents dusty air from escaping back into your home. The Active HEPA filter retains tiny, lung-damaging particles, and the vacuum is equipped with a charcoal filter to absorb unpleasant odors. This vacuum cleaner boasts a zero particles emission count. That means this machine is not cleaning dirt off your floor and blowing it back into your house. It is containing it in the bag. Although the HEPA filters are expensive to replace, they do work for a long time. They will last for 50 hours of use, or approximately one year.

The dust bag itself is large and can store up to 4.5 quarts of dirt. It is composed of nine layers of charged material that traps tiny allergens in its airtight vacuum chamber. Even the most ambitious particles are not going to pass through this nine-layer fortress.

Additionally, the Miele’s spring-loaded dust bag is automatically sealed shut when you open the door to replace the bag, sparing you from inhaling or touching dust and dirt. It is equipped with a pre-motor filter that cleans the air that cools the vacuum cleaner. This ensures the longevity of the machine.

The Miele S7 7580 offers an innovative automatic height adjustment feature. It also uses a unique roller brush assembly that, while spinning, gently separates carpet fibers, allowing the cleaner to lift embedded dirt. Many cleaners use rollers with hard plastic bristles that dig into your carpet, causing damage and wear. This roller brush assembly is spring-loaded, which enables it to be flexible and adapt to different flooring heights without causing damage. The roller brush also has a separate on/off button.

The Miele S7 boasts six electronic suction control settings that you can adjust with the push of a button. You can increase or lower the suction power depending on what kind of surface you are cleaning. If you want to eliminate the guesswork, you can just use the Intelligent Automatic Setting. Once this setting is engaged, the power levels adjust automatically. The controls are electric, so they are easy to use. However, Miele also offers machines in this series with manual controls, which brings the cost of the vacuum down somewhat.

The vacuum operates using two motors. A 1,200-watt Vortex Motor runs the actual cleaning motor, while a secondary motor runs the vacuum's roller brush at 4,800 rpm. There is a separate control for the roller brush motor so that you can turn it off when transitioning from carpeting to hard surfaces.

This cleaner has a motor protection indicator. The indicator device automatically shuts off the roller brush and turns on a red light, letting you know that there is a blockage. In addition, an auto-setting indicator reminds you to check filter bag after 50 hours. It also has an auto shut off feature so that if you run over a sock, the machine will turn off. This feature is vital for preventing the machine from overheating and ensures the longevity of the motor.

You will appreciate the 39-foot power cord. It lets you clean large spaces and go from room to room without the hassle of having to stop to plug in to a different electrical outlet. The length of the power cord combined with the suction hose and telescopic wand gives you an incredible 54-foot operating radius.

This machine weighs 21 pounds, but with its well-engineered design, you hardly notice. It comes with a patented SwivelNeck design. This allows for steering in all directions. This nimble machine runs with rubber front wheels that rotate 360 degrees, and if you accidentally bump into the wall, you will not leave a mark. The machine has a row of LED headlights that illuminate your cleaning path.

The Miele negotiates furniture and reaches places that most vacuum cleaners cannot. You will be impressed with this machine's ability to lie down flat to the floor. You can easily maneuver under the coffee table and bed when the vacuum is reclined. The base assembly makes it easy to push because it carries the majority of weight for you.

The Miele brings those hard-to-clean places within your reach. The hose and telescopic wand combined give you a 15-foot reach. You will also get a crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery brush. The tools attach to the back of the machine so you do not lose them, and you do not have to bend over to reach them.
