Sladust 100T

No Sloppy Sweeping

Despite its resemblance to regular mops, the Sladust 100T is a lot more than that.

The combination of a mop and broom design makes the head of this model highly versatile. The tool can be used on different surfaces, from hard floors to carpets quite effectively. On top of that, this particular design makes collecting dust and such things like the pet and human hair absolutely hassle-free. The construction also allows sweeping floors underneath the furniture where most of the dirt is usually located.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the pole. The long telescopic handle is made of metal, which is coated with a special resin that protects the tool from premature corrosion. On top of that, it can be extended from 34” to 59” and that makes it useful for users of different height.

The only real issue with the 100T model is the quality of the connection that keeps the mop head. If too much force is applied, the head can simply come off and you will have to use glue to fix it.

Other than that minor issue, this sweeper is easily washable. Once the head eventually wears out, you can purchase a new one that is available separately.

Unique design makes this broom-mop combination a universal cleaning tool for virtually any surface in your house and a certain go-to pick if you don’t own a sweeper yet.

Black & Decker 261019

Oddly Shaped, Oddly Effective

At first glance, the Black & Decker broom doesn’t look like anything special. But we wouldn't trust that first impression if we were you.

The soft grip handle is equipped with special foam handles that provide a tight and secure grip regardless of weather conditions. Even though the pole is not telescopic, the lack of moving parts makes it much harder to accidentally break it. Plus, the 56” length of the tool makes it ideal for people both on the shorter and taller sides of the spectrum.

What makes this model truly special, though, is the design of the head. The brush consists of multiple PVC fibers that are differently angled. This simple yet clever construction makes it easier to sweep the areas that are normally hard to reach using a regular broom head.

Unlike many other similar models, the sweeper from Black & Decker comes with a 2-year warranty on manufacturing defects. Although it is not likely that your sweeper will break during this period, thanks to the good quality of build, the warranty is a nice touch to an already great product.

All in all, the Black & Decker angled sweeper is one of the few models that can be safely called “heavy-duty”. Reliable, effective, and easy to use, this model is a great pick for both indoor and outdoor cleaning.

O-Cedar Maxi-Lok (124954)

A Conventional Model

By taking a more conventional approach to the broom design, the people at O-Cedar definitely knew what they were doing. However, you would be wrong to think that this is just another regular sweeper since it is much more than that.

The big 60” metal handle of the tool is quite comfortable to use, even though it isn't necessarily as sturdy as it could be. If not handled with care, it will likely bend over time. Nevertheless, the bent shape won't really affect the performance of the tool since it’s the quality of the brush that matters most.

The brush of the broom is 24” wide, which makes it quite effective for sweeping large areas. Furthermore, the bristles of this model are eco-friendly, made 80% of recycled products that can be recycled again once the brush has worn out. The PE bristles are not hard enough to scratch the floors indoors yet their density allows sweeping surfaces outside of your house. This aspect makes this particular sweeper model quite versatile, enough for sweeping various surfaces, from hardwood floors to paved roads.

To wrap things up, the O-Cedar Maxi-Lok is a great option for those who are looking for a universal sweeper that can be used for cleaning smaller premises and yards at the same time.

TreeLen Windproof

Take the Mess Under Control

The windproof mini-broom and dustpan kit from TreeLen is designed to make the sweeping process as effortless as possible. While inspecting the sweeper itself, let's take a closer look at what comes with the package. The kit is supplied with 5 poles, a sweeper head, dustbin, and a special rubber attachment that can be connected to the bin. The latter will be quite useful for removing the dust and dirt from the bristles of the sweeper. The thin bristles are made of high-quality PVC, which make the sweeping process quite effective.

The dustpan, on the other hand, is quite capacious and can hold up to several pounds of debris and dirt. What is more, the special rubber stripe on the blade of the bin prevents any dirt from falling out of the bin while you are sweeping, which is a neat touch to the overall design.

The metal handles of both the sweeper and the dustbin are telescopic and can be extended from 40.5” to 50”, which adds an extra layer of versatility to the kit.

In conclusion, we would like to point out that despite the rather small width of the sweeper head, this kit is one of the best broom and dustpan combinations out there. Simple, light, and extremely effective, what we have here is a solid choice for easy cleaning.

Evriholder SW-250I-AMZ-6

Rub the Mess Away

One of the few models that can be used for both wet and dry sweeping, the Evriholder SW-250-AMZ-6 is a great tool for the whole household.

To start off, the telescopic pole of the cleaning tool can be extended from 36" to 60", which makes its handle one of the longest in its price range. Despite its obviously pleasant appearance, the handle has one flaw - its connection with the broom head is rather flimsy, so you'll have to be extra careful with it.

The head of the sweeper, on the other hand, is the real deal, the part that makes this model truly shine. Its rubber bristles may seem soft at first, however, they are quite effective at picking up various types of debris, from regular dirt to pet’s hair. The bristles act like a mini-rake and can be used pretty much anywhere in the house, be it the kitchen, basement, or your front yard.

The rubber composition makes the sweeper head of this model easily washable. Likewise, the width of 12” makes it perfect for cleaning various messes both wet and dry.

All things considered, Evriholder SW-250I-AMZ-6 is simply the best wet-dry cleaning tool for its price. What is more, it is also equipped with a squeegee that can be used to clean the windows from the inside and outside of your house.

What Is a Broom?

A broom is one of the most ancient cleaning tools out there. In the past, these sweepers were usually made of different materials but the core design remains the same to this day. A regular model consists of a pole (usually made of wood, metal, or fiberglass) and a head that can be made of a plethora of different materials, from cloth to plastic. Depending on the shape and material of the head, sweepers can be used on various surfaces.

While heads made of softer fabrics are better used at home, the plastic ones (made of PVC or PE) are designed to sweep the surfaces located outdoors. Additionally, some models come together with heads of different shapes and sizes. While short models are better for sweeping your household, the wider heads are more effective for outdoor sweeping.

The broom kits can also be supplied with some unconventional attachments such as dustpans or squeegees that can be attached instead of regular sweeper heads.

If you are looking for more efficient automatic garden cleaners, we highly recommend taking a look at backpack vacuums. And if you need a universal cleaning tool, you might also be interested in a small and convenient Wet-Dry vacuum.
