Miele Dynamic U1 Cat and Dog Vacuum
The Miele Dynamic U1 Powerline Cat & Dog Upright Vacuum denotes the descriptive words “high end” when it comes to bagged upright pet hair vacuum cleaners. The complete appearance exudes quality and elegance.
It is furnished with a dual Vortex Motor System – one provides suction, and the second powers the auto-adjusting brushroll or beater bar. The suction on the Miele Dynamic U1 is above average, although tests tell less than optimum for deep pile carpeting.
There is a manual dial speed adjustment that allows it to customize the suction power for different floor kinds.
The brush roll height adjustment is conveniently located on the upper front and allows you to choose Low, Deep, Smooth, or Curtains.
The Smooth background shuts off the brushroll or beater bar for vacuuming smooth floor surfaces. The removable expansion tube allows you to attend to above-floor cleaning while on Curtains setting.
A design feature unique to Miele uprights known as the ElectroBrush allows the brush roll to automatically adjust to the contour of the floor, giving it noticeably enhanced cleaning performance. It automatically adjusts for carpet kinds plus the Low/Deep manual setting on the front allows you to customize the best results.
The Miele Dynamic U1 is on the heavy side at 21.4 pounds because of the dual motors and higher quality materials. This could be an issue if your household is multi-level or if the operator is physically challenged.
Regardless of the heavier weight, the SwivelNeck Steering makes it surprisingly easy to handle even on lush carpet and maneuvering around obstacles.
Filtration and Allergy-Friendliness
The Miele Dynamic U1 Cat and Dog incorporates a “Sealed Vacuum System” that, according to the manufacturer, removes dust leakage around the filter or bag. Testing has shown only minimal leakage of .03 microns, which is very tiny. This compares well to other vacuums recommended for those suffering from allergy.
Up to 99.9% of allergy-causing dust and particles are captured in the activated charcoal filter that absorbs pet odor.
Miele proprietary AirClean Filter Bags uses a unique plastic flap that allows you to seal the bag the moment it is removed. This feature works well to deter dust from escaping into the air. I have found this to be the most hygienic way of discarding dirt from a vacuum without releasing a dust cloud into the room.
The Miele Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog Upright is a good option for allergy sufferers. The filter that it comes with is Not HEPA-level filtration, though it can be easily upgraded with an Optional Miele HEPA AirClean 3 Filter.
Miele uprights are equipped with 42-foot cords and 12-foot extension tubes. Total 54-foot cleaning radius reduces changing receptacles. This is an especially significant benefit in larger houses.
Miele Dynamic U1 Powerline Cat and Dog Cleaning Performance
The Miele Dynamic U1 Cat and Dog Upright Vacuum delivered the high-end performance you would suppose from an appliance of this caliber on low to lush pile carpet.
It does an excellent task of removing entangled pet hair. Like any other upright, it needs more effort to push on lush pile carpet. The Miele Dynamic U1 is an excellent option for Berber Carpet.
According to static examinations for removing dirt from deep pile carpet, the U1 Cat & Dog rated lower than the less-expensive Kenmore 31150 Elite.
Hardwood and smooth floor performance are very exceptional. The LED Headlights make it easy to see the filth.
General, the Miele Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog lives up to what we would consider reasonable expectations for a pet hair vacuum in this price range.
We recommend the Miele Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog.
