How to get the perfect electric broom

If you want to get your floors cleaned in a timely fashion, but you loathe the weight of your full-size vacuum cleaner, what you might need in your life is a brand new electric broom. For your consideration, we have created a short guide that can take you through some of the most important features you ought to pay attention to whenever you are in the market for such a product.

There are two ways of going about things if you want to get a model that is worth the bang for the buck. You first have to start with choosing a corded or a cordless design.

A cordless broom is somewhat less reliable compared to a corded alternative, and that’s because it can offer you a limited runtime. Most of the units available these days can run for as many as twenty to forty minutes, as many Electrolux Ergorapido reviews and reports of other models have suggested.

Therefore, you will not be able to clean the floors in your entire house (particularly if you live in a large one) with the help of a cord-free electric broom. On the other hand, corded alternatives can be inconvenient because you always have to be within reach of an outlet. On top of that, you may have to use extension cables if the room you’re trying to clean the floors of is big.

If possible, always opt for a cordless unit that can supply you with a runtime of at least forty minutes.

Suction head and power

The higher the wattage of the model you’re going to purchase, the more powerful it will be, and the more suction it will provide. Obviously, cord-free units have limited performance in this sense, because their batteries cannot supply the necessary energy for outstanding suction.

The head design is also essential, because there might be spaces where you have to reach and that traditional electric brooms might not be able to do their job in. For example, there’s a model called Bissell PowerEdge 81L2A that has a V-shaped suction head, which is why it can clean around couch feet and other such surfaces.

Does the weight matter?

One of the main reasons you might be considering getting a new electric broom in the first place is that you don’t have to handle a hefty vacuum cleaner. Consider your own physical attributes, as well as your ability to lift heavy things before getting a model that might not be suited for you. The handle that the unit is outfitted with is particularly important because you will have to hold the broom comfortable and correctly.


Something else you might be interested in is the amount of versatility that an electric broom can offer you. Those that come with several extra attachments for cleaning various surfaces and even carpeted areas or hardwood or tile are far more beneficial compared to those that don’t include such accessories.

You won’t have to spend a penny to get them separately if everything is delivered in one box.
