    We have wood floors and a Siberian Husky – so her hair is everywhere! I dust and vaccum at least 4 times a week!

    @AmyFarrahFowler:  Same here! Not a husky but a white American Bulldog that is in constant-shed mode.

    We clean up 2-3 times a week and do a thorough cleaning once a week (sheets, toilets, mop, etc.)

    I tidy up once a week. A good thorough cleaning only happens once a month or so.

    FYI, I voted for “my partner helps” but thats and understatement. He does 90+% of the cleaning.

    I do laundry weekly and we clean the apt (wipe down counters, vaccuuming, pick up, clean bathrooms ect.) when company is coming. Thats usually once a week but occasionally it is as infrequent as once a month.

    I have much lower standards than my Fiance.

    I generally pick up after myself and don’t let things get too cluttered. I wash dishes everyday and do a general clean up whenever I cook.

    Besides the daily little cleaning up after myself, I do some general decluttering about once a week, and a more thorough cleaning every two weeks. It’s a small apartment, so it isn’t hard to keep up with it. We also have no pets and don’t use the living room too much, so there’s no need to vacuum constantly and whatnot.

    I keep the kitchen clean and the living areas picked up/tidy…but ya, the rest not so much.  There’s a lot of clutter and I leave piles of laundry everywhere.  I hate cleaning.

    I used to have cleaners twice a month but it got expensive and they weren’t actually that good.  I want to find a cleaner who does a good job for like $200/month not $300 because I HATE CLEANING.

    DH picks up and sweeps, but I don’t think he’s ever cleaned the toilets or anything.

    Uggggh, not enough!! Just a few times a month, but sometimes we invite our friends over for dinner just to motivate ourselves to clean the damn place more often. 

    Thankfully DH is very helpful with cleaning up our apartment.

    I clean up everyday (ie declutter, clean kitchen, wipe down tables, etc). Vacuuming is done 1-2 times a week along with dusting and laundry. Bathroom is deep cleaned every other week… and wiped down every day.

    Hubby normally does the dishes and always helps out with the weekly ‘deep/more thorough cleaning’

    I do the dishes every day/every other day and pick up about the same. I usually spend like an hour or so cleaning every other day and it stays pretty clean for having a four year old and two kittens lol.

    I clean just about every day, except for weekends. I’m a total neat freak…not a “clean” freak or germaphobe by any means, but I cannot STAND a cluttery, messy house. Fiance is the same way so I anticipate we will work together daily. At least that’s the “verbal” plan 😉

    A good thorough clean usually once a week, but smaller things in between like dishes (obviously), laundry and some quick vacuuming. Normally on weekends we dust, finish laundry, vacuum everywhere and do bathrooms and anything else that needs to get done. Yes DH helps.

    We have hardwood floors, a Siberian Husky, 2 kids and I stay home so I clean daily. There’s always something to clean. I will admit that the laundry and dishes are the first things to get backed up but I usually make sure there’s no clutter, floors clean, counters clear, bathrooms clean and the playroom, our room, my kids room and guest room are at least presentable at all times.
