Clean Your Floors Day
Also known as
National Clean Your Floors Day
annually on August 3rd
Everyone gets excited for Clean Your Floors Day, which is regularly known as National Clean Your Floors Day! There are a number of types of floors, such as hardwood, vinyl, laminate, linoleum, tile, and carpet. Clean Your Floor Day is dedicated to scrubbing, mopping, and shampooing them, and doing whatever else is necessary to get them clean. Professionals can be hired to clean floors today, although cleaning one's own floors is probably the best way to celebrate. Some also clean their floors with their family and friends, or put on their favorite floor-cleaning jams for even more fun!
How to Observe Clean Your Floors Day
Celebrate by cleaning your floors! You could clean them on your own, with your family, or with friends. Friends could help you clean your floors and then you could help them clean theirs! Make sure to put on some floor-cleaning jams to keep you moving. If you don't feel like doing all the work, call up a professional to clean your floors. That still counts! The following are some pointers on how to clean different types of floors:
- Carpet: First vacuum, then spot-clean stains with a carpet cleaner, then deep clean it.
- Hardwood: First sweep or vacuum. Then mop with a damp (not soaked) mop. A diluted hardwood floor cleaner can be used. If so desired, seal the wood with a polish or wax.
- Laminate: First sweep or vacuum. Then mop with a damp mop head with hot water and a few drops of dish soap.
- Linoleum: Using borax and water or a floor cleaner designed for linoleum will do the trick.
- Tile: First sweep or vacuum. Then mop using a mild detergent that goes with the type of tile you have. Make sure not to push dirty water into the grout. To clean the grout, you could leave a baking soda and water paste sit in it overnight.
- Vinyl: Use water and vinegar or a solution designated for vinyl floors.
