Now back to getting the job done. To do the cleaning job efficiently, don’t settle for a cheap, flimsy broom. The St. Nick brooms are of top-notch quality. What separates us from the rest, or should I say, make us better than our competitors? First, we have a higher than average bristle count. You can imagine that a broom with more bristles will do the best job to sweep clean, right? Our wooden handles are comfortable and easy to grip. Just by first hand examining a broom, it is obvious that our Amish craft designs are so well put together.
We have it down to a science and it is very fascinating. We better be doing it right by now. The St. Nick Company has been in business since 1978. Not only that, but, our dedicated; wonderful broom makers have been part of the team for an average of over 25 years. They have a strong, hard work ethic focusing on precision for their craft from sunrise to almost sunset. The broom block manufacturing process goes as this; – we first receive green lumber, it is next kiln dry, and is finally mille in our factory.
The trusted hardwood we use is sustainably harvest, from locally grown farms part of the Appalachian Region. We are proud to help support the local timber industry and its economy. Fibers are raw materials use to make bristles. There are soft fibers use to aid in sweeping for light jobs, such as found on a house broom. Hard fibers on the other hand are use to tackle tough jobs; heavy duty concrete floors inside of garages, on the streets, in factories, and big commercial buildings, for instance.
For a new broom that sweeps clean, even the smallest component, the fibers; are so crucial in sweeping away the dirt and grime. As for our brooms, we find exotic fibers to make bristles for our brooms. These are from different countries from all around the world.
In our catalogue, you will find a page titled “fiber facts.”; It is worth the read to learn the intricacies; and fine details on the of types of fibers that we use to manufacture a new broom that sweeps clean. I am sure that you are curious to know what types of fibers we use. Here is a list of them: African Bass, Palmyra, Tampico, Nylex (Nylon Fiber), Polypropylene, PVC and Styrene, and Horse Hair. Since we are at it, let us take a closer look into what makes each fiber so special. African Bass, this is an extremely coarse vegetable fiber; which is made from a palm tree that grows in West Africa. It is a reddish-brown color.
It is durable, water resistant so it can be use on dry or wet concrete surfaces. The lightweight, and the excellent sweeping action is a favorite amongst maintenance crews. Palmyra is found in India. It is a vegetable fiber, derived from a base of a fanlike leaf on a palm tree. The best thing about this fiber is that it is long lasting. Remember that quality is important in having a new broom that sweeps clean. The longer lasting, the better quality resulting in allowing you to save money over time. The water resistance of the Palmyra fiber is that it makes an ideal scrub brush.
Tampico is found in Northern Mexico, on the plant Agave Lechuguilla. These fibers hold much more liquid than the usual, typical fiber. The crystals of calcium oxalate embedded in the surface brings a unique surface roughness; that adds more strength and aggression to fighting the ground that must be swept clean. Nylex, otherwise known as Nylon Fiber, is a super light, very resilient and durable synthetic fiber. As compared to other synthetic fibers, this fiber has much better water holding characteristics.
Moisture moves up and tufts easily due to its action properties given by the unique X-cross-section shape that resembles capillaries. Those brooms with polypropylene will outlast brooms that use ordinary fibers, but it still should avoid very hot solutions. It is a strong synthetic fiber that is lighter in weight than other plastic materials. It is great for sweeping stubborn dirt, and resistant to oil solvents and detergents.
Next, PVC and Styrene are plastic fibers that have excellent water holding capacity. Styrene is lighter in weight than PVC. Both fibers are heavier in weight than Polypropylene. PVC and Styrene have a unique “flicking” action and are both heat resistant up to 190 degrees. Finally, there is beautiful, luscious Horse Hair, which is the ultimate natural fiber.
Horse Hair produces a scratch less, fine dry sweeping. It is the perfect sweep for highly polish surfaces and use to finely smooth out newly poured concrete. All of these fibers will produce the finest cleaning results; and it will put your mind at ease by exerting less physical stress and strain on your body. This shows us that a new broom (from us) will most certainly sweep clean.
The strongest fibers are use to create brushes and brooms that are make to battle the biggest, dirtiest, painstaking labor. We place so much value in helping make broom buying decisions; for you by specifying types of jobs that are important to your home cleaning or your business wash down.
Sometimes a complete cleaning is not so simple; there is much more work in order to accomplish than just by examining the surface at first glance. Within your household or business, for example, you might need more than just one or two types of brooms. Look into purchasing a roof brush, floor sweep, deck brush, garage broom or brush, a concrete finishing brush; and even a truck wash brush to keep your vehicles sparkling like new.
