Cooking in the kitchen leads to lots of food and crumbs dropping on the floor. Having a simple brush and pan to quickly pick up that is a simple way to keep things clean. Leaving crumbs and food on the floor can often times lead to more insects and pests.
Sweeping up the kitchen floor is pretty easy with a simple dust broom and pan. But why not go a little extravagant and get a robot to sweep up the kitchen floor. You can even enlist your cat in a shark outfit to get some comedy on this.
