Clean Your Floors Day

Clean Your Floors Day is a holiday designed to encourage people to think closely about how clean their floors are and to take the necessary steps to keep them clean. Although we hope that people clean their floors more than once a year, the purpose of this holiday is to encourage the development of a personal floor cleaning routine.

When many people clean their bathrooms and kitchens, they often don’t pay as much attention to their floors as they do to other surfaces. This day helps remind people that a clean floor is important for a healthy home, so perhaps everyone should take the time to celebrate this day when it comes around every August 3rd.

The History of Clean Your Floors Day

Unfortunately, we know little to nothing about the origins of this holiday. We can’t find the creators of this holiday or even determine approximately how long it has been around.

If we had to guess, we would probably say that it has been around for a few years now, but that would only be a guess. As usual, we’ll attempt to uncover the origins of Clean Your Floors Day, and if we do, then we’ll update this section.

Observing Clean Your Floors Day

Obviously, this is a day for people to learn more about floor cleaning and the proper methods they can use to keep their floors looking good. Rugs should be regularly beaten to remove dust, carpets need to be vacuumed regularly, and hard surfaces need to be properly swept and mopped.

It’s also important for people to ensure that they regularly change their mop heads, that their brooms are in good condition, and that their vacuums are emptied of all debris regularly. It’s also a good day to develop a daily or weekly schedule for floor cleaning.
