Pros of sweeping

Team B has the following obvious advantages:

  • No electricity, no problem
  • Easy to store
  • No maintenance
  • No need for extra attachments
  • Makes no noise, so yes, you can sweep by 3 am
  • Easy to maneuver. So it can get to hard to reach places, like the back of that refrigerator you’ve not cleaned for a while
  • Is not damaged by debris chunks
  • Doesn’t need a bag or a belt
  • Leaves no scratches on your floor surface.


The vacuum cleaner is an effective floor cleaning tool. You may be worried about scuff marks on your hardwood, rest assured there are attachments designed to leave your floors scuff-free after vacuuming.
