According to Hindu religious belief- the broom is considered to be the form of Goddess Lakshmi. That's why the broom should never touch the feet. It is seen that even after the arrival of a new broom, we do not remove the old broom. This should not be done because keeping the old broom brings poverty into the house.
According to Vastu Shastra- there are some rules for buying, throwing, and keeping a broom. Never keep a broom in the house in such a way that no one outside can see it. Lakshmi Puja is done in Deepawali. At that time we take a new broom and throw away the old one so that the poverty is out of the house as well as negative energy does not reside in the house.
While sweeping the broom should not fall apart because poverty resides in the house and there is a shortage of money. The appropriate direction to keep the broom anytime is the South or South-West direction. Let's know some rules related to broom:-
Never Keep An Old Broom In The House

The broom should never be thrown near the drain or tree. Throw it at a place where no one can touch your feet. Because it is believed that Mata Lakshmi resides in the broom.
