ElectroSilk Electrostatic Silicone Broom
During our thorough research, we have read hundreds of reviews from real buyers. This is what most people think of ElectroSilk Electrostatic Silicone Broom:
4 reasons to buy
- In comparison to rubber, silicone is highly durable and does particularly well with hot temperatures. It can in fact endure temperatures of up to 520 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you’re in a hot climate, this could be the push broom of your choice.
- The electrostatic abilities of this broom means that hair sticks naturally to the bristles, so it will be easy for you to pick up any type of hair by simply pushing or dragging it across the floor.
- There’s also a squeegee attached to the head, so you can use the broom to clean up liquids spilled on most types of hard floors.
- Buyers like the fact that it measures just 29.52 inches without the handle extension pieces, making it easy to store when it’s not being used. It extends up to 61.42 inches with all pieces assembled.
4 reasons not to buy
- Because of how the handle extends, there’s more than one weak spot along the handle. Some users consider this a disadvantage, because they are afraid of breaking it if they apply too much pressure.
- Because of the nature of silicone, you need to apply a generous amount of pressure in order to pick up any hair from carpets, and it doesn’t go into grout or crevices between floor panels.
- Some users also question the electrostatic features, because it seemed more like hair was being pushed like an ordinary broom would do it, rather than sticking to the bristles as promised.
- While the nature of an extendable handle is an advantage for most people, the way this one works makes it a time consuming task to fully extend it.
This push broom has some great features, especially the fact that silicone is able to endure even very high temperatures without getting damaged. This is also why silicone is widely used in kitchen utensils, and it doesn’t conduct heat very well either. The broom is also said to have electrostatic abilities, meaning it will work like a magnet on pet hair. Some users question this feature though, because it seemed more like it was just pushing the hair like a regular broom. The handle extends up to more than 60 inches, which is enough for most people, but the way it works is that you have to screw 4 pieces together in order to reach the full length of the handle. The good thing about this is that it is very easy to store when disassembled, but also rather time consuming when you need to assemble it. All in all, this little push broom could be a great choice for multiple reasons, but it isn’t among the cheapest ones out there. Do consider this if you want the advantages of silicone, but otherwise a classic rubber broom could work just as well.
