How it Works

The S-Class filtration system in SEBO vacuums, as described below, results in 99.9% effectiveness in filtering out particles below 0.3 microns in size, making the SEBO air belt C3.1 vacuums just right for those with allergies and asthma. SEBO uses only fiberglass-free filters. A charcoal microfilter is available (sold below) to aid in the removal of odors.

(a) First, the three-layer full-size filter bag collects the vast majority of the debris.
(b) Then, the remainder of the particles are collected by the hospital-grade microfilter.
(c) Finally, the micro-exhaust filter cleans the exhaust air that the vacuum emits.
(d) The air belt disperses the filtered exhaust air around the canister which provides a gentle air flow and reduces machine noise.


Expert Review

We were pleased to see a full-sized, luxury canister vacuum from a highly regarded German manufacturer priced under $1000. We found this full-sized canister vacuum to be extremely easy to use with its quick release, easy to change floor tools, telescopic height adjustment, finger-tip suction controls, and ergonomic handle. Its quality S-class filtration system and sealed design contained the dust and debris particles as they were sucked into the filtration system. The extra-large vacuum bags ensure long use and fewer replacements reducing waste. SEBO is known for its extremely high customer satisfaction and we trust that you will be very satisfied with the C3.1 and its cleaning power.


  • Extremely Durable: having one of the lowest return rates in the industry, SEBO manufactures extremely reliable and durable vacuums that some have reported last as long as 10 to 20 years. (GreenandMore.com does not warranty products for this length of time; however, we wanted to give you this information.)
  • Green Manufacturing: SEBO is committed to a better environment in the following ways:
    • using recycled plastic for internal parts
    • storing roof water runoff for factory use
    • generating own electricity in factory
    • pumping hot air from the generator room into the warehouse to keep the temperature stable.

    • Manufactured in Germany, using locally sourced materials and components, which already ensures a smaller carbon footprint than products imported from the Far East, every SEBO vacuum cleaner is made to last. This not only reduces waste and uses less resources, it even saves customers money. What is really impressive is the lengths the company will go to ensure every single element of a vacuum’s construction makes minimal impact on the environment. Not only is plastic recycled into new components, but the factory is completely self-sustaining with regards to electricity – and even makes contributions to the national grid when supply exceeds demand. A combined heat and power system recovers virtually 100% of its primary energy source; as well as producing the electricity required to run machinery, the warm air created by its generator is used to heat the warehouse while engine coolant is pumped through the office radiators.

    • Water resources are also conserved at the SEBO factory. Rain water (aka brown water) is collected from the roof, then filtered and stored to be used in production and within the factory washrooms, saving the unnecessary use of treated drinking water. The factory and offices are designed to use natural light as much as possible, avoiding artificial lighting and the associated power consumption and working hours are scheduled to make use of daylight hours. This also creates a much better working environment. SEBO have a highly skilled and dedicated workforce and the management of SEBO are very aware of their social responsibility and the huge contribution the commitment and health of their staff make to the quality of SEBO products.

    • For SEBO, reducing the carbon footprint of a product starts in the initial design process. Part of the design brief is to ensure that they will pack into the smallest possible cartons and that the carton sizes ensure that the maximum number of machines will fit onto a pallet. Most packaging is made from unbleached recycled cardboard with waste paper from the offices being shredded and re-used for packing. Even deliveries are carefully planned to ensure lorries are filled to their maximum capacity and are running as economically as possible. “SEBO is at the very forefront of environmental technology and we are making continuous improvements to ensure we stay that way. Anyone who owns a SEBO vacuum can rest assured that it has been produced and delivered in the most environmentally responsible way possible and that it is built to last,” says Justin Binks, director of SEBO (UK) Ltd.


This vacuum is a smart choice if you're looking for an extremely durable vacuum with superior suction and high-end, convenient features. It includes many extras to make vacuuming a breeze, including neatly stored on-board tools, finger-tip suction controls, and an electrified telescopic wand. With a 12" power head, the C3.1 is essential for a large home with wall-to-wall carpeting, or lots of pets or kids. It also includes a parquet floor brush to effectively clean bare flooring as well.
