I was skeptical about how well a rubber broom would work, but my vacuum is currently being repaired and my Australian Shepherd is blowing her winter coat, so I thought it couldn't hurt to try. Well... WOW. I am a believer. I have laminate floors and some rugs throughout my house, and it works really well on both surfaces. I mean REALLY well. It takes a bit of work on the denser pile rugs, but not much more than the vacuum. And granted, it can't get all of the tiny particles embedded in the rug, but it's especially wonderful for hair and works pretty well with tiny particles on the hard floor. This is a great product and I would definitely recommend it.
This little guy does a mighty good job. It really does give your floors a deep sweep. It sweeps up everything! And the best part is that debris does not fly up in the air as you're sweeping, as it does with a regular broom.
If you have pets, you need this broom. It makes sweeping up pet hair a breeze. Not only did my cleaning routine take half the time, the pet hair swept up in neat ribbons making it easier to pick up. It was also easy to sweep under tables and furniture. It worked on my laminate and tile floors. I am hoping this broom will hold up with long term use. The head and extended pole use screw on connections and I tend to be hard on this type of connection. But right now I am very happy with my purchase.
This works as well as any other rubber broom for regular work. You have to get a feel for how to use them on hardwood floors so they won't catch. But like others, this shines as a fur removal on carpets or rugs. I personally use just the head removed from the handle and give the rug a good "scrubbing" in one direction at a time. And before long, just a 4 square foot section of what seemed to be a perfectly clean rug (less than a week old with just one cat) has produced enough fur to fill a red Solo cup. And a second pass in a different direction will take up a little more. It will also help pull up smaller dirt and crumbs, which will then be more easily picked up by a regular vacuum. This can also be used in place of a mop for dirt on tile that needs more scrubbing.
I do animal rescue my home is very clean, however with three Afghans and one Great Pyrenees the hair has to be vacuumed daily. I swear it triples itself behind my back. I was not sure if this would even work especially on my rugs. I had just vacuumed the day before as usual, I have severe back problems and lugging a heavy Vac around almost kills me. I cannot tell you what this broom picks up, I can now get under the Fridge, sofa and chairs. It’s light weight the trick I found that works best for Me is to hold it more at a straight angle, it picks up everything. I clean it off as I go so not to respread the hair. Tighten the handle well it does have a tendency to loosen from movements, rinsed well with water. I would highly recommend this product.
