How to Choose A Broom - Round or Flat?
The Shakers brought the round broom design with them from Europe in the late 18th century and
until the invention of the broom press in 1878, round brooms were the broom of choice. However
today, round brooms are unfamiliar to most folks.
Our customers find the round broom to be a superior sweeping broom because they also have a
rounded bottom. This makes them excellent for all uneven surfaces in the home. For instance,
nooks and crannies in hardwood floors, grout between tiles, slate entryways, board decks, brick
patios and they are terrific for cobwebs on your ceilings! They also get around chair and table legs
We recommend the traditional flat broom for large, smooth surfaces such as garages, carports,
driveways, sidewalks and for very large open rooms in your home.
