There could be a lot of causes for this. He might have been stung by a bee or insect in the snout area and is rubbing to relieve the pain. He could also have an allery to a chemical (cleaning product, carpet powder) and he is rubbing to relieve the irritation.

Last but not least, dog will rub their face on the floor when they have a physical "head ache" to try to ease the pain.

If this persists, a vet visit will be needed.
