Tools of the Trade: Brooms!

Our floors make up huge part of our homes. They are found in every room, and they are an intimate part of our lives: we walk on them, lie on them, sleep on them and more. The services we can provide to you are important to maintain your flooring, but there are day-to-day things that you need to do on your own, as well. This is the third post in a series of posts addressing different tools available to you: vacuums, mops and brooms. Let’s talk brooms.

 

There are a lot of different types of brooms to choose from, and which one you choose will depend on your specific needs. For this post, we are going to focus on corn brooms, the most common type of broom for indoor, residential use.

 

Corn brooms are the brooms you see most often. They are triangular in shape, and while not always made of corn fiber anymore, it is a durable broom that is popular because of its ability to attract and pick up a large part of the dust and dirt particles plaguing your floors.

 

Sweeping is important for the health of your non-carpeted flooring. While a vacuum might do some good, it will not take you all the way. And if you mop before sweeping, you will inevitably end up moving the dirt and dust around, leaving a large amount behind. So invest in a good broom, and when you are ready for a deeper clean, give us a call!
