38 eClean Magazine A Bristly Subject: How to Choose a Push Broom by Rick Meehan, Marko Janitorial, Push brooms are perhaps the most popular cleaning tools on the planet next to mops; therefore, it is important as a cleaning contractor to have an arsenal of them to draw from on a moment's notice. Time is money in our industry, so wasting it in search of a push broom can be costly. It would be prudent to stock a small quantity of each size and bristle type to avoid downtime too. As with other cleaning tools, a push broom must be matched to the person handling the job. Make the decision now to keep a variety stashed so you are prepared for unexpected circumstances. SIZE Push brooms come in limited shapes and sizes. They are long and thin with handles, bristles, and sometimes braces. Lengths vary from around 12" to 36" long by 2" to 3-1/2" wide. A push broom block is the part that holds the bristles in place. Blocks come in wood, fiberglass, plastic, or metal. Handles are available in several diameters ranging from 3/4" to 1-1/4", and lengthwise between 54" and 64"
