|Ideal for all smooth flooring and low-pile carpeting. Easily transition from smooth floors to carpeted surfaces with a quick click of the rocker switch. For use with S2000-8000 series canister vacuums.
Effectiveness is the main concern in the vacuuming industry so all manufacturers struggle to find new ways to the hearts of consumers everywhere by designing more and more effective vacuum cleaners and tools. Combination floor tools rank high from this point of view thanks to their ability to clean more than one type of surface. The SBD 350-3 FiberTeQ classic combination floor tool is one of Miele's best such tools.
The SBD 350-3 FiberTeQ classic combination floor tool shares a few characteristics with other two such tools in Miele's collection, namely the 450-3 combination floor tool and the 550-3 combo tool. The 350-3 tool is the entry model, so it leaves room for a few improvements. One of them regards the material it is made of. This combination floor tool is the only one made of plastic, the other two models being made of metal and therefore being much more resistant, however they are not as lightweight.
Miele's Olympus canister vacuum cleaner is supplied with this FibreTeQ classic combo tool which was initially designed to fit the models of the S2 series launched by Miele. This series includes the Olympus, Delphi, Titan and Capri models, which all support -2 and -3 combination tool models. However, the compatibility of the 350-3 combo tool expands to the vacuum cleaners of the S4, S5, S6 and S7 series as well.
Consumers can choose to use the SBD 350-3 FiberTeQ classic combination floor on either smooth floors or low pile carpets, the transition between the two being made via a rocker switch which only needs to be clicked in order for the brush to come down. The brush of this combo tool is gentle enough not to pose any scratching risks, so the floor is always safe from this point of view. Basically, the risk of causing any damage is eliminated by the front brush strip and the back squeegee. A second flip of the rocker switch enables the air suction mode, which is to be used for cleaning rugs and carpets. The brush strip and the squeegee are not used in this mode, the cleaning being done by the metal soleplate of the tool which pulls in the impurities embedded in the carpet or rug. The wheels are also designed so as not to cause any damage to the floor when dragged upon it.
There is no room for doubt as far as the quality of the SBD 350-3 FiberTeQ classic combination floor is concerned because all Miele products are tested before being launched on the market. Everything is inspected and tested on large surfaces, the cleaning potential of the combination floor tool thus being exploited at maximum levels. A resistance test is also done, the tool having to resist a three-foot drop. This is actually the ultimate test before the actual production of the tool. All these tests guarantee the high quality of the very versatile and efficient FiberTeQ combo tool proposed by Miele, so consumers can rest assured that their home is in good hands.
