What does "as" mean?

Helen: I don't believe it. How many cups are in this sink? Does anybody do the washing up in this house?
Jane: I do
David: Me too
Matt to David: You never do the washing up. You always leave it to someone else.
David: at least I do some cooking.
Matt: well, I clear up the kitchen.
David: How often?
Matt: I did it last month.
Helen: Right. That does it.
As from today we're going to keep this place clean and tidy.

    As an American English speaker I would say...
    From today, we're going to keep this place clean and tidy up.

    Think of 'as from' as a fixed expression that means 'starting from', 'with effect from', 'as from', 'from ... on'.
