Whether you're cleaning your home, office, or yard, brooms are an essential part of every cleaning cupboard. Ideal for cleaning up dirt, dust, and debris, brooms have been used for centuries thanks to their ability to reach even the smallest of crevices. 

Of course, some brooms are better than others and which type you opt for really depends on the type of surface you’ll be sweeping. We’ve researched the best brooms on the market to help you pick the right one for the job.

Dustpan and brush all in one

Make life easier with this combo broom and dustpan set. The handle of the boom is 52 feet long so you don’t need to bust your back when sweeping the floors and it’s also long enough to tackle dust webs or high up spaces. A great feature of this broom is that when you’re not using it, you simply clip the broom to the dustpan for compact storage.  The dustpan also has added teeth to comb out the dirt from the soft bristles of the broom so that you’re not pushing dirt all around the floor.
