Keep it Clean

Carpets were swept with a broom or a hand-brush to remove crumbs and dust. Marks would be removed with a scrubbing brush. From time to time, carpets would be hung over the clothes line and given a good thumping with a carpet beater.
Wooden floors were scrubbed or wiped with a floor cloth or mopped clean. The mop bucket had a built in drainer to squeeze the mop dry.
