We fully clean and vaccum the house once a week. We have two house cats and are both asthmatic so it has to be done. I love having a clean house too!

We tidy things up every day… wipe off counters in the kitchen/bathroom, dishes, etc. But deep cleaning with dusting and vaccuming happens maybe once a month. I thought it would be a lot more, as Darling Husband is very OCD and very neat, but we have found that only some areas of the house get dustier over others… like our bedroom!

We don’t have pets. Even when I had my cat before Darling Husband and I lived together, I’d vacuum every other week or so. Do a deep clean once a month, or when I felt like it. My place wasn’t messy, and it was just me so it was easy to pick up after myself after doing something.

I have two dogs, two cats, and a very messy DH! We have a Roomba that runs daily M-F, so I only have to sweep/vacuum the areas that it cannot get about once every other week.  I usually mop after I do that as well.  I clean the kitchen counters pretty much daily, and the bathroom counters once a week.  Laundry is usually once a week as well. I like to get the dishes in the dishwasher daily, but it’s DH’s job to scrub them first, so that doesn’t always happen. Dusting is usually once a month.

We have two cats and no kids. We clean the house properly once a week, we swiffer, tidy, and do a quick clean up in the kitchen (dishes, sink, floor, counters) daily. I would not say we are clean freaks or anything, but our house is small and we share a bathroom so it gets messy quickly if we don’t stay on top of it.

We clean the kitchen every day, as we use it.  FI can’t stand a dirty kitchen.

I wake up early on either Saturday or Sunday and do a full cleaning of our place.  I should mop and dust more, I will admit to slacking in that area, but bed sheets, sweeping, bathrooms… all done once per week.

I actually like to wake up, have coffee and clean on a day off.

Cleaning is pretty much a constant thing in our house. I don’t like messes building up, I would rather take care of them as soon as I notice them. It’s much more time-friendly and low-stress this way.

I do one thorough clean once a week. This includes vacuuming the whole house, dusting, mopping the kitchen/dining room and the bathroom and the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, and changing sheets/towels. I also spot clean during the week as required – I’ll pull the dustbuster or mop out if the floor looks dirty, etc. My Fiance handles the dishes and I don’t really consider general tidying cleaning lol. We have a cat, although he’s surprisingly clean. The only thing that has changed about my cleaning routine since adopting him is that I used to be able to leave mopping the laundry for an extra week if I ran out of time or something – as the laundry is also our cat’s room, I clean it every week now, just in case he’s spilt some food or something.

We do a full clean once a week, have 2 dogs so vacuuming needs to happen at least 2 times a week.

Too be honest not as often as we should. Thankfully, the mister is more of domestic than I am. Because if it was left up to me, lord knows. Kitchen and bathroom of course are upkept frequently. But I’d say a full on cleaning of everything, maybe every 2-3 weeks (which he spearheads). Urggh, because of this thread i’m going to go home tonight ….
