What is a broom used for?

A broom is a cleaning tool consisting of usually stiff fibers (often made of materials such as plastic, hair, or corn husks) attached to, and roughly parallel to, a cylindrical handle, the broomstick. It is thus a variety of brush with a long handle. It is commonly used in combination with a dustpan.
A distinction is made between a "hard broom" and a "soft broom" and a spectrum in between. Soft brooms are for sweeping walls of cobwebs and spiders, like a "feather duster". Hard brooms are for rougher tasks like sweeping dirt off sidewalks or concrete floors (or even smoothing and texturing wet concrete). The majority of brooms are somewhere in between, suitable for sweeping the floors of homes and businesses, soft enough to be flexible and to move even light dust, but stiff enough to achieve a firm sweeping action.

What is the difference between a brush and a broom?

As nouns the difference between broom and brush is that broom is a domestic utensil with fibers bound together at the end of a long handle, used for sweeping while brush is an implement consisting of multiple more or less flexible bristles or other filaments attached to a handle, used for any of various purposes including cleaning, painting, and arranging hair. 
As verbs the difference between broom and brush is that broom is to sweep or broom can be (nautical) (to clean a ship's bottom) while brush is to clean with a brush.

What is the history of the broom?

According to historian Gregory H. Nobles, in 1797, explains Slate.com, a farmer from Hadley, Mass., named Levi Dickinson had the idea to use the grass to make a broom for his wife, as well as a few extra to peddle to neighbors. His broom—a round bundle of broomcorn lashed to a stick with some weaving around the top—proved to be more durable and effective than previous models, and it was soon in demand around the region. By 1800, Dickinson and his sons were making several hundred brooms a year to sell throughout the northeastern United States.

What does a broom symbolize?

A broom is a simple object that has multiple different potential meanings. It can represent home and hearth, cleanliness, witchcraft, marriage, depending upon context and culture.

How many brooms are sold each year?

With the advent of the broom machine and the Shaker design, broom-making's popularity spread rapidly across the United States, reaching its apex around 1850 when more than 1 million brooms were being constructed each year in Massachusetts alone, and being sold as far away as South America.

Eventually, though, broom-making followed national expansion to the western states, where broomcorn was considered to grow better. By the turn of the 20th century, the industry had significantly declined in the Northeast. Following the larger trends of industrialization in all trades, small broom shops in the United States gradually expanded into factories to meet demand, their manufacturing techniques continuing to require skilled, hands-on labor, until 1994, when NAFTA made Mexican brooms cheaper and forced many American outfits to close. Currently, most of the United States’ natural fiber brooms come from south of the border, with only a few local makers remaining, says Slate.com.

What is the use of broom and dustpan?

The dustpan is commonly used in combination with a broom or long brush. The small dustpan may appear to be a type of flat scoop. Though often hand-held for home use, industrial and commercial enterprises use a hinged variety on the end of a stick to allow the user to stand instead of stoop while using it.

What are Indian brooms made of?

Different brooms are made and used by different communities, like grass brooms by Banjaras and bamboo brooms by Harijans. They are made from a wide variety of materials, like grasses, reeds, date palm and coconut leaves, some local, some transported from across India.

What is a bass broom?

A bass broom is a broom made from piassava fiber, which is any of several stiff coarse fibers acquired from palms and used especially in cordage or brushes. Piassava is obtained from a Brazilian palm and palmyra bassine derived from the palmyra palm of Africa and Sri Lanka.
