The reasons are several, for example the price is one of them. Using a broom is much cheaper if you have to clean a small area. Electricity needed for a vacuum cleaner to start working can be used for something more serious. When people need to clean just a small area of the room, using the broom or the mop is more comfortable. Besides, it is cheaper to buy a broom instead of vacuum cleaner.
Another reason for home-owners to buy brooms is the fact that some spaces can be easily cleaned with these old-fashioned tools. The hard-to-reach places such as the space behind the bedroom or the one under the fridge are also easier to clean using a broom.
Mops and brooms are eco-friendly as well. The commercial devices use chemicals and some cleaning products that may be harmful for the environment and your health while sweeping with the broom cannot endanger your health in any way except the dust can be avoided. Experts’ advice is to always keep a broom and a mop at home. you never know when you may need them.
