Other brooms force you to waste time an energy while causing dirt, hair and other debris to fly all over, or be left behind as you sweep. Traditional bristles will float over the top or allow particles to sneak between, which forces you to make extra passes or deal with less than clean floors. Not only do these traditional tools produce mediocre results when sweeping the floor in your home, they also tend to wear out quickly. Since they don’t work very well when brand new, an old one is nearly useless. This household rubber broom a 12 sweeping head that is a solid piece of natural molded rubber. This makes it nearly indestructible, incredibly long lasting, and perfectly suited for cleaning any type of hard floor. It will be easier to use than regular versions, and will also produce better results. Unlike old-school tools that may be better or worse at certain jobs, this broom is able to excel at them all. No type of dirt is hard to sweep when you use this broom, so you will be able to remove stubborn and annoying debris without breaking a sweat to leave more time in your day for activities you enjoy.

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.

We tested 14 outdoor brooms with a troop of Boy Scouts to find that the O’Cedar 24” Multi-Surface Push Broom is the best option for your driveway, decking, patio, or garage floor. Its blend of stiff and soft bristles can handle fine particles and heavier debris, wet or dry. A unique fastener you won’t find on any of the competition means the head won’t detach from the handle while you’re sweeping.

Dust damp. Use just-damp dust cloths as you work. The moisture will attract and hold dust. But beware of too much moisture. It can harm wood furniture and delicate surfaces. As an alternative, spritz your cloth with an aerosol dusting spray. Never spray surfaces directly; spray the cloth instead to avoid buildup and overuse of these products.

Push brooms’ handles usually screw into an angled hole in the head, and there are often two holes on either side of the head so that the handle can be switched when one side of the broom’s bristles begin to wear out. The problem with screw-in brooms is that their heads tend to come loose and need to be tightened frequently for smooth sweeping. Manufacturers have tried to improve on this design. O’Cedar brooms substitute an adjustable plastic nut for the screw-in handle—and we found this works pretty well—while other manufacturers add a brace to keep the head from rotating. Contractor-grade brooms typically have a metal brace, while the Libman 24” broom has a plastic brace. (If you’d like to add a metal brace to your favorite push broom, you can buy a broom brace for $5.)

We were on the hunt for the perfect dustpan, too. A great dustpan needs a wide enough mouth to match your broom’s head, and a rubber lip on the front edge of the dustpan is crucial. This rubber lip sits flush with the floor and creates a ramp up into the dustpan, which helps you sweep stuff into the dustpan with fewer strokes, instead of having to sweep, scoot the dustpan back, sweep, scoot, sweep … and so on. A good dustpan also needs a ridge on the inside to keep debris inside, or everything swept in can slide right back out. It also needs a decent capacity; you don’t want a shallow dustpan that can’t handle a half cup of spilled rice.

Material. Some materials are more hardwearing than others, so check the materials in comparison to the price and in accordance with how long you want the broom to last. This should not kinky include the broom handle and head, but also the bristles.
