If you’ve ever tried to sweep sand then you know that it’s one of the most difficult things to sweep. Ever. Especially if you’re using a traditional broom. But if you live or vacation near the sand then it’s a necessary chore. Sand is one of those substances that seems to get everywhere, and it can be nearly impossible to clean completely, no matter what the surface type is. It doesn’t seem to matter if it is on a deck, kitchen floor, in your car, on the carpet or anywhere else. Traditional brooms just don’t cut it when you’re trying to clean up sand. You can sweep and sweep but there will always be some left, and lots of times you end up just spreading it around, and/or causing it to fly all over.
What Is Sand
Duh… It’s that annoying stuff all over your floor that has you searching the internet for a solution. You know, the tiny particles that make a loud noise when you vacuum, or sit there laughing at you when you come near them with a broom. The little particles get tracked in by shoes and pets, or blown in by the wind, and once in your home, the resulting dunes can be pretty tough to get rid of. This naturally occurring material is composed of teeny tiny pieces formed by the division of larger rocks and minerals. The exact composition will vary based on location, but it doesn’t really matter what the ratio of silica to quartz is. Any type of sand will be tough to clean from flooring surfaces without intense effort, or a better tool.
Why It’s So Difficult To Clean
It’s super small, and it can be kind of sticky. When sucked up by a vacuum, it can cause damage, and when swept up by a traditional broom, it can be tough to collect. Both of these methods are standard floor cleaning techniques, but they are really not the best when you’re trying to keep the beach outside your home. Regular brooms will glide right over the microscopic pieces, and the best vacuums will require the use of attachments, and pin point cleaning to get any of it up. In most cases, any type of removal will take tons of effort, and for most situations, you will be forced to just deal with the leftover sand. Unless you want to get on your hands and knees with a wet paper towel, you’ll want to continue reading to learn about a faster and more effective way to get this job done.
Cleaning Made Easy
There’s one broom that makes the frustrating task of sweeping sand an easy job. The Sweepa Rubber Broom outperforms traditional style brooms for every imaginable sweeping task, but cleaning up sand is one of its specialties. It’s the unique design of this broom, along with the material and construction that allow it to completely remove sand so well. It doesn’t matter if you are sweeping your driveway, your entryway, or your kitchen. This broom is safe and effective anywhere you use it, and it’s able to completely remove all of those tiny particles, without any special steps, intense effort, or remarkable talent required.
So What Makes It So Great?
We’re glad you asked. A rubber broom is drastically different than regular brooms, and they have many benefits. Our rubber broom has proven to be the highest quality and best working model available. Its one piece molded rubber head conforms to any surface, and the bristles form a solid wall as you sweep. The rubber head is the same strength as car tires, so you know it will last forever, but it’s also gentle on every surface, and it won’t scratch or mar any material. This rubber construction also causes the broom to build a static charge as you use it. This improves the sweeping action, and actually causes dirt, sand and other debris to sweep up more easily, stay right next to the broom, and it prevents lighter particles from floating away or flying up as you sweep.
The static charge, combined with the wall of rubber bristles allows you to completely clean any surface in just one pass. No more sweeping, re-sweeping and then going back to sweep again in order to clean your floor of sand. It even has a squeegee on the opposite side which can be quite useful for sand on patios, concrete and other smooth surfaces. And it makes the perfect tool for picking up that light layer of dust that traditional tools leave behind.
How To Use It
It looks very similar to a push broom, but you actually use it like any other household version. A pulling action will always work best, especially for the fine particles and dust we’re discussing here. For the majority of the cleaning, you’ll use the regular bristles. For any super fine dust, just flip it over to use the squeegee blade to completely remove it in a single pass. Although it does not require a college degree to operate, the instructions and tips that follow may help improve performance.
- To sweep sand, first ensure that the head is secure and clean.
- Extend the pole to your desired length, and then twist to lock in place.
- Clean using a pulling motion, by placing the broom on the floor at a distance, and then pulling in in toward your body.
- You’ll want to apply firm pressure as you pull, and for best results, you should work from one side of the floor to the other.
- Using shorter strokes will ensure nothing is left behind, and the resulting charge will keep everything on the floor, and next to the head.
- Continue pulling until you form a pile, then collect into a dust pan and discard.
- For powdery dust, the bristle side may leave a small amount behind, so use the straight rubber blade on the back to ensure nothing remains on the floor.
- When the head gets dirty, it can be rinsed with a hose, washed by hand with soap and water, or even placed into the dishwasher for cleaning.
Where To Use It
Safe and effective almost anywhere, there are really no restrictions. The rubber material will never leave a mark, or cause a scratch, and because it conforms to any surface, no material is off limits. The list below contains a sampling of the many locations and materials you can use it on.
- Inside or Out
- Kitchens, bathrooms, basements, garages, porches, sidewalks, driveways and more.
- Effective on concrete, marble, tile, wood, carpet, cement, stone, brick, linoleum, etc.
