Picking up Dirt Never Has Never Been Easier

Richard Ford spent a fair amount of time daily sweeping his hardwood floors at his retreat center at Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino Mountains. “It was getting to be really time consuming,” he said. “You would be surprised how much dust, trash, and detritus collects on a hardwood floor over the course of a day, even when you only have a handful of guests. I was spending sometimes a good hour sweeping and mopping the hardwood floor in our lobby every day, when I could have been spending that time doing things far more productive.”

Using a broom to sweep your hardwood floors can take a lot of time and energy, and is no longer necessary when you have a non-electric hardwood floor sweeper. Very portable, lightweight, and easy to use, you don’t have to go through all the motions of sweeping, bending over, and picking up what you have swept up into a dust pan when you use a hardwood floor sweeper. Everything in its path can be easily picked up through the use of durable brushes.

“I finally bought a small sweeper that I could push that turned out to be very effective in getting my floors clean,” says Ford. “For just under $50, the dust pan is built in and it’s easy to maneuver. It fits right under my furniture, and I don’t even feel the need to mop every single day afterward. It does that good of a job picking up dust and dirt, as well as other small items that seem to be attracted to my lobby floors!”

When you look into buying a hardwood floor sweeper, it is important to make sure you get a frame that is durable from a name you can trust. “I had bought a cheap sweeper for $15 or $20 a few years ago and felt like it was a total waste of money,” says Ford. “It would pick up pieces of paper and maybe paper clips and stuff like that, but it used a bristle brush that would get hair and other floor detritus stuck in the brush itself. It squeaked a little and I’d have to push it over the same area multiple times before it had any effect. I think that sweeper itself ended up in the trash within a month. The difference between that and my recent purchase is very dramatic. It proved to me that not all sweepers are the same.”

The kind of brush on your hardwood floor sweeper is important, as well. Those that have a blade that can efficiently pick up materials from the floor are better buys than bristle brushes.
