Things to consider when looking for the best broom for pet hair
Broom vs. vacuum: While vacuums for pet hair can be very helpful, they do break. You want to have a backup option for when your pet vacuum takes a dumb, and you have guests coming over in an hour. Many pet vacuums also blow some of the pet hair around before it sucks it up and you will want to use a broom to get all your pets hair up thoroughly.
Writers Tip: Vacuum first, broom last. Always use a pet hair friendly vacuum or a pet grooming vacuum.
Size: Brooms come in many different sizes. Choose a size that best fits the surface space you are cleaning and the storage you have available to store your pet broom in.
Bristle texture: Broom bristles come in many different materials. Choose the material based off of the pet hair you are cleaning up, the surface you are using it on and what type of floor you have. Ex. You won’t want a broom with stainless steel bristles to use on your floor, but you would want that broom for your couch or carpet.[su_divider divider_color=”#5860af”]
