In order to combat a bedbug infestation, it is extremely important to vacuum properly. Proper vacuuming is having a high-quality vacuum that will suck up dirt, dust, allergens, and in this case, bedbugs, and ensuring they stay trapped for good within a quality dustbag. Miele vacuums feature a 12-stage state-of-the-art HEPA filtration system (including a genuine Miele FilterBag) that traps 99.9% of dust, dirt and allergen particles of at least 0.3 microns in diameter.
Bedbugs have become difficult to control due to pesticide bans; and measuring approximately half a centimetre, they are hard to find. Experts advise using a bagged vacuum (not bagless) to clean not only mattresses and carpets, but the entire room, including closets and drawers, behind picture frames, under wallpaper and inside clocks and electronics, as the insects can be found anywhere. Once vacuuming is complete, they advise disposing of the vacuum bag right away.
An essential part of Miele's filtration system is the 4.5 litre Miele AirClean FliterBag, with its nine layers of fleece material. Unlike bagless vacuums, which release dust and allergens into the air when emptied, the Miele vacuum system ensures that dirt, dust and allergens are trapped during vacuuming and sealed in the bag for easy disposal.
