Miele has joined the growing number of floor care suppliers targeting pet owners with the introduction of its newest vacuum— the S8 Cat & Dog vacuum— which the company is positioning as “the ultimate” canister vacuum for pet owners.
The S8 is a follow up to the company’s S7 vacuum and offers many comparable features. The S8 Cat & Dog model features an Active Air Clean filter and mini turbo-brush, both of which are aimed at battling pet hair and odors. The Air Clean filter contains active charcoal to absorb pet odors, while the turbo-brush helps to remove pet hair from furniture, stairs and car interiors.
According to the company, when combined with Miele’s patented AirClean FilterBag plus Sealed System, the S8 Cat & Dog retains 99.9% of lung damaging particles and unwanted pet hair and dander inside the machine.
The S8 Cat & Dog features +/- foot switch controls, a low-noise Vortex Motor and a 3D bumper to protect furniture, walls and the vacuum itself from nicks and bumps in the event of minor collisions. Its lightweight skeleton construction and extended cord length makes the S8 Cat & Dog easier to transport up and down stairs and from room to room. The S8 comes in a bright Koi Orange finish.
