There are both similarities and differences between SEBO and Miele vacuums and we highlight these in our review. For instance, both brands only produce bagged vacuum cleaners, but Mieles have a longer warranty than SEBOs.

Aside from vacuum cleaners, Miele also has other products such as ranges, ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, as well as other cleaning products and accessories.
Sebo vacuum cleaners
The SEBO brand name is actually an acronym for SEmigewerbliche BOdenpflege, which is German for semi-commercial floor care.
SEBO claim to make the world's best vacuum cleaners for pet hair removal, allergy and asthma relief, ease of use and reliability. Their vacuum range includes uprights, canisters and power heads whilst they also make dry carpet cleaners and suction floor polishers.
It's interesting to note that SEBO are responsible for a number of Vacuum Cleaner World Firsts, including the introduction of:
- An integrated suction hose on an upright vacuum;
- A dust bag that fills from the top, followed by a micro filter and then the motor;
- An electriconically controlled automatic height adjustment.
In addition to the above features, all SEBO vacuums come with the following as standard:
- Tight seals throughout to ensure dirty air does not escape through the body of the machine;
- Reliable commercial grade components;
- Rubber wheels and soft bumpers to protect homes;
- Advanced brush roller technology uniquely designed to funnel hair and debris into the powerheads' airflow channel;
- 5 year warranty on the motor and all non-wear parts.
You can find full details of all Sebo's cleaners in their product catalogue.
Miele vacuum cleaners
We looked at the Miele vacuum brand in detail in this article and we also put them to the test against Dyson here. Miele are a much older company compared to SEBO and have been making vacuums since 1927. You can therefore have faith that their machines are tried and tested.
Miele vacuums have also received consistent awards in consumer tests: since 2005 alone they have been voted test winners more than 60 times! We think that is pretty impressive. Their latest Ecoline models have done particularly well in energy efficiency tests.
Another commonality between Miele and Sebo is that their vacuums are made to have tight seals that ensure none of the dust you suck up can escape back into the air. This is essential if you have allergies or asthma, however is not a feature of cheaper vacuum brands.
Miele make all the common types of vacuum cleaner including uprights, canisters, lightweight stick models and also robot vacuum cleaners.
