When you go for shopping, you will find the broomstick which is too long. It is best to recognize the needs. If you require to sweep under the bed, then you will need a broom with a long stick. However, you will find many brooms with adjustable stick enabling the user to change the heights according to their need.

To make this product even more convenient and easy to use, it comes with an extendable handle that is designed to make the use and storage of this alternative quite easy. The extendable broom is purposely built to add versatility to this option.
Last, we found that the pole—which screws into the steering mechanism on the frame—can unscrew if you sharply jerk the handle to the left (counterclockwise) when turning the dust mop. This is annoying, but it’s also avoidable if you use smooth, calm strokes.

It’s now spring, which means it’s the season of cleaning and organization. There’s something particularly alarming about emerging from the winter doldrums to find that your home is a dusty, cluttered mess. To help you (and us) with sprucing up and restoring order, we’re talking to professionals and experts this week all about the best tricks and tools.
This sweep set includes a broom and a dustpan, which can be stored together as the broom can be attached with the dustpan for easy and space-effective storage. The dustpan has teeth combs which easily pick up dirt and dust from the bristles of the broom. The broom itself features soft and top quality bristles which work very well in absorbing dust and dirt while cleaning up dirt of any texture or thickness.

To learn what makes a good broom, dust mop, and dustpan, we interviewed Debra Johnson, a home-cleaning expert who has worked with Merry Maids since 1997. In addition to her firsthand cleaning expertise, she works with the Merry Maids Franchise Cleaning Council to research and improve the cleaning equipment the company uses. We also talked to Green Cleaning Coach Leslie Reichert, a housekeeping expert who teaches people how to clean effectively and in environmentally friendly ways. Then, we surveyed hundreds of Wirecutter readers to find out what they love (and hate) about their own brooms.

The Up & Up dustpan has a bright green rubber lip that measures 8.5 inches across, two inches less than the OXO. It’s a bit too narrow for the Casabella’s head, but all the dustpan sets we tested had the same problem (except for one, which was expensive and not great at sweeping). Thanks to its stiff, wedge-shaped lip, the Up & Up outperformed all the other sets—even those with wider mouths—in our sweeping tests.
Finally, the Swiffer’s sheets are non-biodegradeable. A representative for Procter & Gamble told us that the sheets are made of polypropylene and polyester and are coated with wax and mineral oil to help trap dirt and dust. Every sheet used and thrown away ends up in a landfill somewhere, presumably forever.
I also tried to get opinions from experts on the best outdoor brooms. Unfortunately, outdoor brooms are the liverwurst sandwich of landscape tools. Plenty of people have them, but they’re not trendy or fashionable, and you’re not going to watch an hour-long special on push brooms tonight on HGTV.
Our selection of storage containers includes a broad range of sizes and design formats to fit the needs of whatever you are storing or transporting. From compact storage containers that can be carried by an individual to ones several feet long that can be lifted by a forklift if necessary, there are choices to satisfy a variety of situations. Look for those that stack easily and can be tied down by bungee cords, as well those that have the proper depth, width and length.
One great way to clean broom is, comically enough, to use a vacuum cleaner. Take the time to let your vacuum suck the dust, hair, and debris that has woven itself into the broom and you’ll be left with a clean tool ready for more cleaning.
When selecting brooms to test, I looked at articles by broom manufacturers, reviews by users on Amazon, Home Depot, and Lowe’s. I came up with a list of top-rated brooms and eliminated models that cost more than $35 (with one exception), models with plastic handles that users said were likely to break, push broom models with handles that could not be replaced, and models with fewer than five reviews of their performance. I also eliminated brooms that had only flagged fibers. I ended up testing a total of four corn brooms and ten push brooms.

Whether you’re starting a small lawn project or overhauling your entire garden, we have the landscaping tools you need to achieve the look you want.
The Casabella Wayclean Wide Angle Broom is the best at sweeping, the most comfortable to hold, and the least expensive broom we tested, and the OXO Good Grips Clip-On Dustpan is the best to pair with it. To round out your cleaning kit, we recommend the O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Dust Mop. Its double-sided head was the most effective at capturing dust and could clean the longest before needing to be washed.
I realize the sweep side of the mop is supposed to be used to collect dust in one place before picking it up like Tony mentioned. However I find the non-locking of the dual action flip mop to be annoying as well. Can you share what this other dust mop you use is?
In fact, especially when fashioned with modern materials, this timeless pair present a perfect example of a basic item that will always have its place in the home, school office, and beyond. Let’s discuss why this still rings true today.
Reviewers on Garrett Wade praise the broom as “stiff” and “heavy duty,” using it to sweep wet leaves, snow, grass clippings and lawn debris of decks, floors, and brick walkways. It isn’t ideal for all heavy substances, one reviewer notes, “This is not ideal for pushing loads, as the metal clamps tend to break the bristles.” One reviewer was perturbed by the unfinished-wood handle, writing “Be prepared to wear gloves if your hands are damp or sweaty, or you’ll end up with splinters.”
Even among the basic garden tools, you are bound to find a wide of designs and sizes – enough to cause confusion when shopping. There is a reason for so many options – using the right tool for the right job makes your work easier and more efficient. Here are some of the different tools you might find.

The WOLF-Garten Outdoor Broom B40M ($23) is small for an outdoor push broom—it’s just 16” wide—and you’ll need to buy a $22 handle to go with it if you don’t already have a suite of WOLF-Garten tools. That brings the total cost to $45…plus the glue you’ll need to keep the handle from constantly shifting and clicking while you use the broom. Many Amazon reviewers are very happy with WOLF-Garten’s aluminum “Multi-Star” handle system, where a single pole with a push-button locking system attaches to a variety of different tool heads. But I found with the broom (as well as the WOLF-Garten rake I reviewed) that the handle attachment is loose and tends to rotate, wobble, and shift during use. It’s hard to work efficiently when it feels like the tool you’re using is going to fall apart at any moment. Eschew the Multi-Star for the galaxy of firm-handled brooms.
