  • Product Overview

    The Miele UniQ delivers thoughtful design and agile performance rarely seen in canister vacuums. Part of Miele’s S8 line, this model cleans medium to thick carpet but also works on smooth, delicate floors. A 12-stage sealed HEPA filtration system is independently lab-tested to capture 99.99% of allergens as small as .3 microns.

    Exclusive features not seen in other S8 models are included with the Miele Uniq S8990. Underbody lights and a velvet bumper strip protect it, while a deluxe handle grip with button controls makes it a convenient choice. Its automatic setting means hassle-free movement because a sensor automatically adjusts its suction power as it moves from room to room—so moving from hardwoods to thick carpeting requires no extra work from you.

    Intuitive and Versatile

    The UniQ comes with 2 floor heads: the Electro Premium Powerbrush keeps carpet plush and clean while the Parquet Twister Floor Tool cleans bare floors. The Electro Premium brush is powered by its own motor head for strong suction. An LED headlight on this tool illuminates the floor so cleaning under tables or in poorly-lit spaces isn’t a problem.

    Miele Authorized DealerAttach the Parquet Twister floor tool to clean smooth flooring with its soft but powerful fibers. Its neck twists a full 180 degrees to swivel around furniture legs or other obstacles. Swipe dust from moldings and baseboards with a gentle lift, then lay it flat against the floor to get deep under furniture. 

    These tools are made even more nimble by the electric, stainless steel, telescopic wand that extends to reach difficult places with an easy click of a button near the handle.

    True Allergy Relief

    The Miele UniQ has a 12-stage AirClean Sealed System that virtually eliminates the chance of allergens escaping from the vacuum’s chambers. The sealant around the casing forces air to move through the patented filtration system, meaning vacuumed air can’t leak out.

    An included Active HEPA Filter contains a charcoal film to neutralize odors, and is tested to pass strict European EN1822 filtration standards to capture 99.99% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns. A filter replacement indicator light lets you know when you need to replace it. The UniQ’s AirClean FilterBags are specially constructed to keep dust particles contained and consist of 9 electrostatically-charged layers and a self-locking collar.

    Exclusive UniQ Features

    The following features are only included in this Miele S8 model:

    • Deluxe Handle With Controls—Easily access the Electrobrush and suction controls, which are located on the ergonomic handle grip.
    • LED-Lit Underbody—The UniQ is equipped with LED underbody lights for a brighter cleaning experience.
    • Parking System—This vacuum stays lit for 30 seconds after you turn it off, allowing for effortless stowing in a closet or pantry.
    • Velvet and Chrome Accents—Enjoy a touch of class with chrome and velvet complements, including a velvet bumper strip that wraps around the canister to protect your furniture.

    Additional Features

    • Lightweight Skeleton Construction—This 11-pound vacuum coasts lightly along floors for faster, more enjoyable cleaning.  
    • Virtually Silent Operation—The 1,200-watt motor is powerful yet quiet thanks to its insulation.
    • Integrated Tools—The dusting brush, upholstery tool, and crevice nozzle are stored on a single carrier that fits neatly into the velvet accessory compartment.
    • 33-Foot Cleaning Radius—The 21-foot cord, combined with the hose and telescopic wand, provides a 33-foot cleaning radius.
    • Automatic Standby—Take a quick break without having to turn the vacuum off. Instead, slide the wand into a parking receiver on the base, which activates a sensor to put the UniQ in standby mode.
    • Automatic Height Adjustment—Use the automatic height adjustment setting if you don’t want to alter the power level yourself as you clean different flooring types.
    • Durable Casing— The rich metalic casing is not just attractive, but resilient, consisting of the same high-impact ABS plastics used to make professional football helmets.  
    • Hassle-Free Repairs— Should you need a repair, there’s no hassle or shipping involved. Simply go to one of the authorized Miele dealers in your area.
    • One-touch Cable Rewind—Rewind the cable with one simple touch of the button.


    Keep every surface from smooth bare floors to heavy-pile carpet clean for years with the Miele UniQ canister vacuum.

    Comments about Miele S8990 UniQ HEPA Vacuum Cleaner with AirClean Sealed System:

    I purchased this vacuum to replace a Hoover upright that did a poor job with our new, thick carpet. While the Hoovers' suction was too great for the new carpet, the Miele was adjustable, allowing a much easier and better job. It also does a great job on our hard tiles and hardwood floors. Expensive, but worth it.
