|Miele S5281 Canister Vacuum:|
The main factor that lies behind the success of the Miele S5281 Libra canister vacuum is its Air Clean sealed filtration system. This system is special because it cleans the indoor air too, not just aims at the elimination of air pollution.
The air it pulls in from the Miele S5281 Libra reaches the 4.76-quart 9-ply dust bag from where it passes on to the HEPA filter and the pre-motor filter, so any remaining particles are eliminated by these two. Thus, the air cleanliness rate reaches a remarkable 99.99%.

Balance is one of the words that can be used to characterize the appliances manufactured by Miele, a manufacturer that always aims for the highest convenience and performance with their characteristic filtration systems and motors. Their appliances weigh a lot in the market and therefore, so does their S5281 Libra canister vacuum, whose name reflects exactly the principles Miele operates by and their goals.
The S5281 Libra canister vacuum reaches its peak performance on low to medium pile carpets and smooth floors. The user can adjust its power to match their carpet or floor via the rotary dial which can be found at the base of the appliance. Thus, they can choose any of the six power levels that range between 300 and 1200 watts to clean any surface. The 1200-watt Vortex motor is one of Miele’s hallmarks and produces strong suction while consuming little energy. Moreover, it is not at all loud, which comes as a surprise given its power. Some more demanding cleaning jobs require for the replacement of the powerhead or the fitting of various tools and this is usually quite a cumbersome job. However, it is not with the Libra vacuum because all the accessories one can need are stored in the vacuum, so the replacements can be done in no time. As far as the powerhead goes, the efficiency of this vacuum on carpets is due to its SEB 217-3 powerhead which cleans very well while leaving no marks on the clean surface thanks to the floating head. Thicker carpets can be handled with the SEB 236 powerhead while smooth floors can be handled with the parquet floor brush. The brushes have wide cleaning paths, so they do not need to pass right over the dust or dirt to remove it.
The maneuverability of the S5281 Libra canister vacuum is also remarkable, this vacuum being equipped with three casters for easier and smoother transportation around the house, an ergonomic handle which not only has beneficial effects on the user’s health but is also very practical, an SES 119 electric hose with two swivel ends and an SET 220 electric telescopic wand. The latter two and the long automatic rewind power cord allow the user to clean within 33 feet of the vacuum cleaner, which is an operating radius not many vacuum cleaners have. The list of maneuverable features is completed by a dual parking system.
However, the main factor that lies behind the success of the Libra vacuum is its Air Clean sealed filtration system. This system is special because it cleans the indoor air too, not just aims at the elimination of air pollution. The air it pulls in reaches the 4.76-quart 9-ply dust bag from where it passes on to the HEPA filter and the pre-motor filter, so any remaining particles are eliminated by these two. Thus, the air cleanliness rate reaches a remarkable 99.99%.
The S5281 Libra canister vacuum follows the tradition set by Miele, being provided with a seven-year warranty on the casing and motor. Thus, it proves to be a durable product, which is another thing Miele is recognized for. It is known that all Miele products are subjected to rigorous testing before making their way on the market and this builds a lot of trust between the manufacturer and the customer.
Suitable for cleaning all types of floors and floor coverings, Miele’s S5 Series blends energy efficiency with standard-setting innovations to create a highly intelligent and remarkably convenient vacuum cleaner. Many S5 models feature foot pedal controls for effortless comfort, and the savvy S5 Earth offers a self-adjusting AutoEco™ setting. As you transition from hardwoods to dense carpeting, the S5 Earth automatically decreases suction, then increases suction when you return to smooth, solid flooring — saving you both time and energy.
The ergonomic telescopic wands standard on all S5 models make reaching for curtain rods, mantles, blinds and other hard-to-reach surfaces as easy and convenient as caring for your floors. And with an additional layer of sound insulation, these full-size canisters operate quietly without waking sleeping children or disrupting conversations.
There’s a Better Way Forward - For Allergy and Asthma Sufferers.
From introducing the world’s first HE PA certified vacuum cleaner to developing our advanced 12-layer filtration system, Miele has been pioneering the science of clean air technology for more than 80 years. While many vacuum cleaners today promise to remove allergens from the air completely, only Miele’s AirClean Sealed System® has been proven by independent laboratory tests to be over 99.99% effective in capturing and containing pollens, dust mites, pet dander and other irritants known to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. Within each Miele Series, you’ll find HE PA vacuum cleaners — and all help you and your family breathe easier.
