One of Miele’s missions has always been to adapt to their customers’ needs and they seem to have found the right solution every time. The SBD 285-3 combination tool is another of their very practical and inspired choices, being able to deliver excellent cleaning results on all surfaces. Whether one needs to clean a rug or a hard floor, this combination tool is just the right one.
The main strengths of the SBD 285-3 combination tool are its versatility and its efficiency. The list of vacuum cleaners it matches is quite long, most of the upright ones and the canister ones launched on the market by Miele supporting it. The models of the S6, S5, S4, S2 series, the S140 to S168 models, the S227 to S456i ones and the S500 to S858 ones can all be fitted with the SBD 285-3 tool. Moreover, it is included in the Miele S5 Ariel package.
As for its efficiency, the manufacturer has found a series of features that optimize the cleaning process. First of all, the bristles were chosen very carefully so that they do not cause any damage to the floor while being dragged forward and backward on it. They are synthetic and disposed so that they do not leave any debris behind. They can also be retracted by clicking a rocker switch, thus allowing one to clean both smooth floors and low pile carpets.
The rocker switch is found at foot level and its flipping does not raise any difficulties whatsoever. Some of the debris is also removed by the two rows of felt which deliver their best results against soil and hair. Finally, this combination tool features a soleplate made of stainless steel with an equally high efficiency rate, a soleplate which produces enough suction to remove all impurities within a 10-inch radius, thus also turning this tool into a time effective cleaning solution. Moreover, the brushes are surrounded by a series of notches which basically direct the dirt and debris into the nozzle. The head of the SBD 285-3 combination tool has a double joint which ensures the continuity of the cleaning as there is never any loss of contact between the head and the floor. All these features guarantee the proper cleaning of any surface that may require cleaning, from hard floors to rugs.
Miele appears to have thought of everything when they designed the SBD 285-3 combination tool. They came up with a very practical tool which allows their customers to save their resources, may they refer to time, money or energy. Its ease of use, versatility and efficiency strongly recommend it, these strengths being complemented by a very wide compatibility range. Most of the vacuum cleaners manufactured by Miele can be fitted with this combination tool which improves the overall performance of their appliances significantly. All in all, the SBD 285-3 combo tool is a very useful asset anyone keen on keeping their home in the best condition should consider as a cleaning solution.
