High pile carpets are softer, fluffier, and have a "heightened" appearance. These carpets have long threads that are practically magnets for dirt and debris. With that said, having one by your front door where their is a lot of foot traffic is not a very good idea. To properly maintain, you should get a vacuum cleaner that has height adjustment and an electric power nozzle that performs agitation. This is a fancy word to describe how the brushroll spins and lifts up dirt and debris embedded in high pile carpets. The Miele Dynamic U1 Cat & Dog
has an electric power head and two motor system that can readily tackle these types of carpet present in your home. Moreover, this upright vacuum
comes with the 6 inch Miele STB101 Turbo Mini Brush
that is great for cleaning stairs, chairs, and other pieces of furniture.
