Sponge mops, too, offer efficient cleaning for spills and floors. Larger cleaning heads make the job fly faster. Because these mops get a workout, make sure hinge mechanisms are made of metal; plastic won’t stand up to the job.

Lift your stuff off the floor and put it up on shelves, in any room – think garage or laundry rooms. Get the detergents and fabric softeners on a shelf within reach. Treat yourself to storage shelving for your tools and make space for a garage studio or for your car.

A dry mop or dust mop is designed to pick up dry, loose contamination such as dust, earth, and sand from the surface of the floor. It consists of yarn and/or microfiber and is used as a first step in cleaning a floor.

The Casabella excels, in spite of the Libman’s wider head, because the Casabella’s sweeping surface is exponentially denser, with more even distribution and a higher total bristle count. Plus, each of those 2,880 bristles has a flagged end to help it trap dust and hair. Cleaning expert Leslie Reichert told us flagged bristles are best for indoor cleaning and dry messes because they “pick up small particles much better and don’t tend to leave much behind.” In practice, the Casabella took fewer sweeps than the Libman to gather a mess into a pile and left less residue behind, which balances out the Libman’s advantage of having a wider head.

The O’Cedar 24″ Multi-Surface Push Broom ($22) is the best all-around outdoor broom for the price. Its head has a mix of an inner core stiff bristles and an outer ring of soft bristles with two different types of tips, which can handle sand, leaves, gravel and pine needles on a variety of smooth and rough surfaces. All the bristles are synthetic and can get wet without rotting. The metal handle is well-balanced for controlled, smooth sweeping.

Yes. The head is totally dishwasher safe, and it can also be washed by hand in the sink, hosed off outside, etc. The handle will collapse to about 34 inches and expand to about 60 inches. You can set it to whatever length you like best within that range. You will be very happy with it’s ability to remove hair from any type of flooring.

Doesn’t need to be a full guide. If you have any recommendations from experience, or know of any good review sites you’ve collaborated with in the past that has a good recommendation that would be good!

Sweep or vacuum the floor before mopping. Most mops do a poor job of picking up crumbs, hair, and other forms solid debris. As such, you’ll need to use a broom, hardwood floor vacuum, or handheld vacuum to clean up the floor before mopping it.[3]

Angled synthetic brooms are lightweight and work well to clean near baseboards, behind furniture and in corners. Use them indoors, as their lighter weight makes them impractical for heavier outdoor jobs. Store synthetic brooms head-up to avoid bending the bristles.

Purchased the O’Cedar dust mop based on your recommendation. For hardwood floors, I understand I can use the mop dry. You mention in a response to a comment that it can also be used damp. Would you recommend just using water or some sort of cleanser? And should the mop itself be dampened (with a spray bottle?) or the floor sprayed and then mopped?

If our main pick is unavailable or you want a broom that comes with a dustpan, we recommend the $14 Libman Large Precision Angle Broom with Dustpan. It’s not as effective at sweeping up dust as the Casabella, it’s heavier and its bristles are a bit too stiff, and it doesn’t have our pick’s comfy grip. However, among the brooms we tested the Libman was the second best at sweeping , was well-liked by our panel, and comes with an okay dustpan.

This is very cheaply made and a huge disappointment. It falls over if you put 2 or three yard tools in it. I have heavy brick on mine to prevent it from falling over. It’s just not sturdy enough for practical use

The O-Cedar Dual-Action Flip Mop and refills are available from most retailers, and they’re easy to find online, too. Our pick costs $19, and refills are $10 each from Amazon, but we found our pick for $13—and its refills for $7 to $8—in Target, Home Depot, and Walmart. The O-Cedar and its refills are less expensive and much more effective than other dust mops we tested.

After more than 25 hours researching and testing 14 outdoor brooms (and giving a long look at dozens more), we have three picks that can satisfyingly sweep up all the little bits and pieces of crud on your driveway, decking, patio or garage floor. All of these did fine work sweeping on multiple surfaces around New England over several months. First, we worked with a property manager and a troop of Boy Scouts out to clean up fall debris at an Audubon Society sanctuary, and later, we tried each at home over the course of the winter. If you need to keep the outdoors clean, these are the tools for you.

Why is this broom so effective? Most of the magic is in the bristles. The Casabella has 2,880 bristles; 96 clumps with 30 bristles each arranged in four staggered rows. Because the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) bristles are so dense and well-arranged, they create a thick forest for sweeping and trapping dust, ensuring that few particles are left behind. Our pick is about 25 percent thicker than our runner-up, which has 2,184 bristles, arranged in four rows that leave small, diagonal paths through the broom for dust and other particles to escape while you sweep.

Metal can rust if not cared for. Plastic is virtually weatherproof. Handles are usually wood. You will most likely have to assemble your purchase, but it is not a difficult job. Look for a good pneumatic tire. Keep the wheelbarrow clean and lubricated and it will last a long time.
