Miele Introduces The New S5 Libra Hepa Vacuum

Just in time for the fall allergy season, Miele introduces the Libra vacuum in a hot new mango red color. Proven in scientific tests to outperform other HEPA vacuums, the unique Sealed System™ technology, AirClean™ Filter-bag™ and certified HEPA filter found in the Libra make Miele the popular choice for allergy and asthma sufferers nationwide. It’s a little known industry fact that consumers may be at risk as improperly constructed vacuums spew micro particles into the air as they “clean.”

“It’s counterintuitive to think that your HEPA vacuum cleaner may actually be making your home dirtier while you clean,” states Paul McCormack, spokesperson for Miele. According to a recent scientific study commissioned by Miele and conducted by Interbasic Resources, (IBR), a nationally recognized product research laboratory, new evidence proves that not all HEPA vacuums do what they say.

“In fact many leading name brands spew out 2-14 million lung damaging particles per minute into the air actually making your ‘clean’ house an environmental hazard. On the other hand, Miele vacuums make your home cleaner and safer by capturing and retaining 99.99+% of harmful irritants – on average 622x better than other HEPA-filtered brands,” concludes McCormack.

The Libra comes just in time, as this allergy season may even be longer. According to Dr. Paul R. Epstein, M.D., associate director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School, growing seasons are lengthening thanks to global warming. "Hay fever is typically caused by trees in the spring, grasses in the summer and ragweed in the fall," he explains. Given warmer climates and increasing levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, weeds are experiencing outrageous growth patterns and extending allergy sufferers misery.

“It’s counterintuitive to think that your HEPA vacuum cleaner may actually be making your home dirtier while you clean,” states Paul McCormack, spokesperson for Miele.

Libra’s stylish full-sized S5 canister offers an Electro Comfort eletrobrush for grooming and deep cleaning carpets and a Parquet Twister floor tool for easily cleaning all hard, smooth surfaces such as tile and hardwood flooring. This innovative combination effortlessly tackles pet hairs, house dirt and allergens. Power control lets homeowners increase or decrease suction to safely clean furniture, drapes, mattresses and pillows using three integrated cleaning tools found conveniently onboard.

The S5 Libra vacuum cleaner retails for $949.
