Sweep Before Deep Cleans for Sparkling Clean Floors

Sweep Before Deep Cleans for Sparkling Clean Floors

OCTOBER 14, 2021 | Cleaning Tips, Get Organized

When your floors are covered in dirt and grime, it can be tempting to jump right into deep cleaning so you can check floor cleaning off your to-do list. But when it comes to floor cleaning, you’ll get your best results—you’ll only notice the sparkle, not the dust—if you follow our step-by-step process outlined below. 

Here are some tips for sweeping your floors before mopping using our line of indoor brooms, including our innovative new PowerCorner® Pet Pro Broom & Step-On Dust Pan designed with V-trim to reach every square inch of your space, so you can get that deep clean you dream about.


Start By Sweeping
Sweeping before you reach for the mop just gets the job done better. When you sweep first, you remove dirt, dust, and all other built-up debris on your non-carpeted floors over time. Dog hair. Spilled cereal. Tracked in dirt from the bottom of shoes. 

As you sweep, remove as much debris as possible, targeting corners and underneath furniture, where hair, both human and pet, can get trapped. You may need to lift up furniture to sweep pet hair and other surface debris into your dust pan. And PowerCorner® Brooms are perfect for those hard-to-reach places.

The Best Brooms for the Job
For the best sweeping experience possible, you need a broom that fits every nook, cranny, and square foot of your house, apartment, or condo. We have three PowerCorner® indoor brooms with one sweep clean* capability, no double sweeping necessary. 

One sweep clean capability means 99% of surface debris is gone with one swipe of the broom, including rice, hair, sugar, and cereal, some of the most common household offenders. Many of our brooms include dust pans that go the extra mile; anti-static technology allows for easy release of debris into your trashcan and the convenient cleaning combs scoop up every last bit of unwanted mess. Here’s how to choose the right broom for you: 

Perfect for Everyday Messes 
Our PowerCorner® Large Angle Broom is perfect for tackling everyday messes in any room of your home. Its double-bristle technology makes it firm yet soft enough to clean a variety of hard surfaces. You can easily sweep all your corners and hard-to-reach places like under the couch or behind fragile collectibles. The dust pan features anti-static plastic that captures dust and hair and releases it with one tap, so you can forget about struggling to get all the dirt and debris from the dust pan into the garbage. 

Perfect for Pet Lovers
Dog and cat lovers, our PowerCorner® Pet Pro Broom is the broom for you. The V-trim bristles are designed to sweep up your pet’s hair in one go. It comes with a stand-on dust pan that allows for hand-free, reduced back bending while cleaning up and it removes three times more hair than your standard dust pan.
This also comes with a stand-on dust pan that allows for hand-free, reduced back bending while cleaning up. The days of sweeping aches and pains are long gone with this option. 

Perfect for Small Spaces
Our PowerCorner® Angle Broom is similar to the PowerCorner Large Angle Broom but is ideal for smaller spaces like apartments, dorms, or tiny homes. It features the same combination of soft and firm bristles and moves an incredible amount of debris—99%—in just one sweep.*


End With Mopping
Now that you know which broom best suits your lifestyle, you’re ready to complete your deep cleaning with a mop that matches the efficiency of your broom. Just like with sweeping, you’ll want to choose the product that achieves the clean you want. Whether you’re doing a quick or deep clean, we’ve got options for every occasion.

The Right Mop When You’re Short on Time 
For a quick cleaning option, use the ProMist MAX Microfiber Spray Mop. This mop is an alternative to disposable mops and provides a quicker clean with less waste. This is an ideal option for keeping your hardwood floors fresh.  

Perfect for Deeper Cleans  
When your floors are calling for more thorough mopping, use one of our spin mops. All you need is water to remove over 99% of bacteria from all hard surfaces.** They’re easy to use with hands-free wringing technology that keeps your hands away from the mess when you mop. Removing dirt first makes it easier for microfiber mops to do the job of tackling things like bacteria and odors. Even though you see the dirt, the unseen bacteria and odors can put a damper on family time.  

No More Dirt and Debris
Floors get dusty and dirty, but choosing to sweep before you deep clean can make all the difference. And with the right broom and mop for your needs, deep cleaning goes from dreaded task to more time to relax. To improve the sparkle of your floors, check out our line of indoor brooms and mops for a one-two punch for better cleaning.
