    I vacuum generally everyday (unless i'm having a slack day) and mop twice a week.

    Our house is full of tiles and with a messy cook and a boy who's aim in the toilet bowl is terrible it could do with mopping everyday. However I don't have the time or the energy to do that!

    Every day. Every morning and late afternoon I vacuum and sweep the floor. I mop the floor once everyone is in bed.

    Wow - that's dedication. I'm impressed.

    I use the dustpan around the table after most meals (and invariably a spot clean here and there). A 'quick vacuum' most days if my hair has accumulated in the corners, a full vacuum every week, and I use the microfiber sweeper thingy about every week or two, but honestly, I don't know how we manage it with a preschooler and a toddler, but the floors just always appear clean, even if they're not... We must have magic tiles and carpet.

    I sweep/dry microfibre/then wet microfibre all tiled areas (most of house) every day, and vacuum living area (and bedrooms) 2 -3 times a week.

    I'm curious - the people who vacuum everyday - is that tiled floors, or carpets?

    I only ever vacuum carpets, my tiles I like microfibre sweeping

    I have mainly vinyl floors so vacuum and mop those. I use my cordless stick vacuum every day and my dyson on all floors twice a week
