Standard Brooms

SORT BY:
Standard brooms are simple tools that handle spot cleaning and maintaining smaller areas. From options that resist chemicals and water to those that make cleaning up crumbs and other debris from hard flooring surfaces quick, Staples carries a range of brooms and cleaning supplies that meet the needs of most business, janitorial and home users.

Understanding the Options for Standard Brooms
There are different types of brooms that provide enhanced cleaning and durability for use on specific surfaces. Models with corn fibers are stiff and withstand frequent use on sidewalks and in garages and barns. The stiffness helps move heavier dirt and wet debris, reducing the strain of repeated sweeping motions. Angle brooms have softer, lighter bristles that don't scratch or damage indoor flooring surfaces. These options have heads cut on an angle that helps users reach into corners. Push brooms have wider heads and long handles that make quick work of cleaning large areas and handle exposure to concrete and other rough surfaces. Upright brooms feature bristles that work with wet or dry sweeping over smooth areas. These options come in several different sizes, providing options for basic cleaning, sweeping off furniture and reaching under seats and chairs.

Choosing Standard Broom Fibers
Brooms come with different bristle fibers that affect their cleaning efficiency and durability. Most standard brooms feature natural corn fibers. This material is rigid and tightly packed in the broom head, providing a durable option that withstands heavy-duty use. The stiffness of the bristles ensures the broom collects both fine and heavy particles and withstands use on rough or uneven surfaces. Corn models are oil resistant and handle exposure to solvents. The natural fibers are susceptible to water, which can shorten the overall product life.

Synthetic brooms have polypropylene bristles that are available in varying stiffness levels. These bristles work well for wet and dry use and resist damage from oil, acids, water and other liquids. Synthetic brooms have increased flexibility over other bristle types, providing effective sweeping on hard floors and carpeting. Polypropylene also drys quickly, reducing the growth of mold and mildew.

How Do You Maintain Standard Brooms with Corn Fibers?
Shake out corn brooms after use to remove any dirt and debris remaining in the bristles. Using water or detergents on the bristles can cause mildew growth since the thick fibers don't dry quickly. Avoid using natural fiber brooms in areas where water or mud may come in contact with the bristles.

What Are the Maintenance Requirements of Synthetic Standard Brooms?
Synthetic fibers withstand exposure to water, which lets users wash or hose out any remaining debris after use. Shake out the broom after each use to remove any materials that become stuck in the fibers during use.

Are There Ways to Prolong the Life and Effectiveness of Standard Brooms?
Trimming broken and frayed fibers prolongs the usability of most standard brooms. Storing the broom with the bristles off the floor reduces bending and breaking, providing increased durability and longer usability. Remove hair and other materials that become stuck in the bristles for increased effectiveness during use. Staples also carries a wide selection of dustpans to select.
