    When we had carpet I vacuumed every 1-2 days. Just high traffic areas and bedrooms would be done 1-2 times a week.
    Then we found out my oldest has dust mite allergies so I had to vacuum every day, including moving furniture etc. It was such a pain having to do a thorough vacuum every day.
    Now we live in a house with no carpet or rugs. I sweep amd mop the main traffic areas every day and vacuum 1-2 times a week. Our house is big...3 double bedroom plus study, two bathrroms, quite a large kitchen, big entry, lounge, dining and family room. It takes me 40 minutes to do a thorough vacuum.

    Hahahahahahahahaha... No.

    I work 3 days a week, and on those days am out of the house from 7am to 7pm at least (later when work is crap, which is always at the moment). I don't have time! We clean as needed as we go - the kitchen gets a clean most nights after dinner and I'll do a quick mop if DD makes a mess with her food. I probably vacuum downstairs maybe twice a week. We have a cleaner once a fortnight and she does a thorough clean. We just try to keep it as nice as possible in between!

    Yes!! I have to, we have an inside dog and I hate the pet hair so I vacuum the house daily, except for the rooms (guest bedroom and sometimes study) that are not used daily. If I don't the house feels dirty, I have a 4 hour cleaning routine I do daily and that's included in it.

    Nooooo

    I do the lounge 2-3 times a week and bedrooms once a week. Rest of the house is cork and is cleaned 1-2 times a week depending how grubby the kids have been!

    Where we eat I do, but a proper full house vacuum is only about twice a week.

    Only if you count getting the dustbuster out for the crumbs under the table as vacuuming! It has never crossed my mind to vacuum more than once a week and sometimes it's more like once a fortnight that the whole house gets a thorough vacuum and mop (takes over 2 hours in total). Honestly I can't see why I'd want or need to do it more than that!? The house always looks clean and tidy and I deal with any little messes as they arise but I never clean just for the sake of it (different of course if there are allergies or very furry pets).

    My cleaner vacuums once a fortnight.. I don't touch it unless there is broken glass on the floor or something.

    Um I vacuum 2-3 sometimes 4 times a day just the open plan area (kitchen, dinning and lounge) and down the hall to the laundry, the rest of the house 2-3 times a week. I just have the vacuum sitting in the open plan area or hiding in the formal lounge plugged into an extension cord that reaches everywhere (we don't use the formal lounge).

    I can't stand a dirty floor
