Miele is renowned for their floor tools and for their combination floor tools in particular. Many of the vacuum cleaners that bear the Miele mark come with a special head which improves their performance on certain types of surfaces. The Miele S194 Quickstep vacuum cleaner, for instance, comes with an SBD 470-3 FiberTeQ combination floor tool, which is one of the best attachments of its kind available on the market right now.
The SBD 470-3 FiberTeQ combination floor tool is one of the attachments which are equally efficient on hard floor surfaces, low pile carpet floors and rugs. Similarly to all the combination floor tools manufactured by Miele, this model also features a rocker switch for an easier transition between cleaning modes. A rougher brush comes down when the hard floor mode is enabled and a softer one when the carpet or rug mode is selected. The softer one not only protects the carpets or rugs but it also makes the transition on them easier and smoother. Finally, bare floors are protected by the steel soleplate which cleans them.
No spot is out of the reach of the 470-3 combination floor tool. Small and isolated areas can be cleaned very easily with it thanks to its swivel neck design. The air suction system of the soleplate is very efficient too and so are the grooves at the front of the brush which collect the dirt and guide it into the nozzle. For all these reasons, the SBD 470-3 combo tool is ideal for pet owners too, pet hair usually being quite difficult to remove.
Another great thing about the SBD 470-3 combination floor tool is that it fits a large number of vacuum cleaners in Miele's catalog. It can be fitted on the Olympus, Delphi, Titan and Capri models of the S2 series, the Capricorn, Earth, Leo, Gemini, Callisto, Libra, Pisces and Ariel models of the S5 series and the Quartz, Red Velvet, Onyx, Topaz and Jasper models of the S6 series.
The maneuverability of this combination floor tool does not pose any problems either. The swivel neck design, the soft roller wheels and the low weight of only two pounds make it very easy to drag and turn around the house for proper cleaning. The Miele designers found a perfect balance between the practicality and the visual appeal a combo tool should have when they conceived the SBD 470-3 model and consumers everywhere seem to respond to it.
All in all, the SBD 470-3 combination floor tool is easy to use, easy to maneuver and it offers solutions to more than one cleaning problem, so it is a cleaning solution itself. The FiberTeQ technology it uses is highly effective and it gives it a privileged position among the combination floor tools sold on the market these days. In fact, Miele has always been renowned for their innovations and ideas which have revolutionized the vacuuming industry for quite some time now.
