Upright brooms come in three different varieties: Natural Corn brooms; Speedy Corn® (poly corn) brooms; and Standard Upright brooms. Corn brooms are the long-time standard. Broom makers have been using the natural fibers for generations and they still do because of their effectiveness and durability. Synthetic brooms are great for a variety of uses, including kitchens and large open areas. Upright Brooms provide surface maintenance for applications including residential, commercial, and hospitality.
