Have you ever finished vacuuming just to see dust particles floating through the air moments later? Those particles (and the smaller ones you can't see) are not just annoying, they can also be damaging to your family's health. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) links particle inhalation to aggravated asthma and allergy symptoms, bronchitis, long disease, decreased lung function, and other respiratory and cardiovascular symptoms. If this sounds familiar, your vacuum cleaner might be part of the problem. Most vacuum cleaners use single-ply cloth or paper dustbags that don't effectively trap particles inside, while bagless vacuum cleaners release trapped particles back into your home every time their dust containers are emptied. Even Miele HEPA vacuum cleaners-- some of the most powerful particle-trapping machines on the market-- can be compromised if they're outfitted with off-brand or counterfeit bags. 


If you're looking to gain some ground in the battle against indoor air pollution, we recommend outfitting your Miele vacuum cleaner with genuine Miele AirClean FilterBag dustbags. A 2015 study by IBR Laboratories demonstrates that Miele vacuum cleaners trap up to 265 times more dirt, dust, animal dander, and other allergens per minute than competitive vacuum cleaner brands. Any particles that enter Miele vacuum cleaners have to pass through nine-ply cloth FilterBags, where 99.99+% of those particles will get trapped. From there, air passes through a second filter before it is exhausted back into your home. When the bag is full, a spring-loaded, self-sealing collar shuts the bag to ensure that none of its contents is released during disposal. This feature is especially helpful in allergy and asthma households, homes with pets, and in any space that can benefit from cleaner, healthier air.
