Miele's Best Canister Vacuums For Hardwood Floors 2022

What makes a vacuum suitable for Hard floors?

Short answer, good suction and a nice floor head. Hard floors, such as hardwood, ceramic and laminate flooring are the easiest types of floors to clean. As long as you have a vacuum with good suction, well, technically good Air Flow, (because its actually the airflow that does the cleaning and not the suction, but that is a discussion for another time), and a decent floor tool, then you should be good to go. For this reason, basically any Miele vacuum can clean hard floors extremely well. But there are certain models that are meant for people who have much more hard / bare floors than rugs and carpets. Below Canadian Model Miele Vacuums are the best Canister Vacuums for Hardwood Floors:

  • Miele Classic C1 Hardfloor - Lightest Model

  • Miele Compact C2 Totalcare - Best Seller
