I sweep daily, and 'spot clean' (mainly around DS's table daily!) and mop one a week... but seriously, I could sweep, vaccum and mop everyday. My child is destructo!

Main areas every day, our bedroom and ensuite every day, kids bedrooms once or twice a week depending on how much they've played in there. Sometimes I'll dust them twice a day if they're bad.
I dust everyday, vacuum once or twice a week.
It takes me 15 minutes tops to dust and mop the whole house and it's not that small a house. Enjo mops are the.best.invention.ever. I used an old fashioned mop on my toy room floor once...it took ten minutes for that room alone and was so much harder to do + it killed my back. No wonder people don't mop every day if they have to do it like that!

We are a very strict no shoes house with one child and no pets. I find I don't need to mop myself - the cleaners do it once a week. I clean up spills as they happen and sweep around the kitchen and dining areas as needed.
No shoes makes a HUGE difference. Having spent time in Asia I now find it revolting to wear shoes in the house.

We just ask politely if they could take their shoes off.

I tend to sweep 3-4 times a week and mostly mop weekly (although it should be twice a week). I've slacked off a bit since DD2 was born.
Now that DD2 is crawling, I'll need to do the full sweep/mop more like every second day
Going to an Enjo party next week.....will have to check out this magic-mop!

Our house has a lot of floor space. We have cleaners come in once a fortnight and it takes two people working as fast as possible an hour to do just the main areas. So I don't do it nearly often enough! DS2 hates baby carriers at the moment, rarely let's me put him down and vac and mopping the main areas with one hand would take several hours... At which point DS1 would have gone a little nuts! When DS2 starts crawling will have to get to it a lot more often

Vac every 2nd day, steam mop once a week. If a few marks appear before then, I use the mop with the moist floor wipes attached and quickly go over it.
