2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment.

Um... We clean on our alternative days off. If its getting cluttered or gross. I am not a neat freak. We don't have a schedule\routine for cleaning.

Sweep/Mop/vacuum: I never sweep... but I vacuum almost every other day. I HATE dust. I mop once a week.
Bathrooms: Shower/tub: twice a week, Sinks & toilett: three times a week.
Dog poop: Never. Noone poops in the yard.
Lawncare: N/A
Counters: Multiple times a day. After any food prep.
Linens: Every other week! (I hate doing linens)

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I've never used any kind of conditioning product on them, and they're still pretty from their last refinishing (have no idea when that was, we've been in the house 2 years now).

I clean the bathroom once a week, do laundry once or twice a week, and do linens every week or two.

I do the dishes and clean the kitchen all the time, once a day at least.

I have to nag my husband to help me with cleaning, and I hate that. I'm a bit of a neat freak so I realize I have high standards, but there are plenty of things he could do to help me.

We have two people and one dog in our family.

4 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms, and a guest suite sort of thing, I guess.

Sweep/Mop/Vacuum: A few times a week. I mop each time I vacuum.
Bathrooms: The full bath that I use is at least twice a week. The half bath that's used less often is maybe once a week.
Dog poop: When I feel like it. One dog on an acre isn't too much of an issue.
Lawncare: I think they come weekly. I don't pay attention.
Counters: Feels almost constant. There's a certain orange kitty who is convinced the no counter rule does not apply to him.
Linens: Every week.

If I had enough time, I feel like I'd clean constantly. I love things to be neat and clean. Clutter and dirt are a definite no with OCD.

Haha! We had a Roomba when I was in Georgia, and I could not figure out how that thing decided where to vacuum. It just zig-zagged and circled through the main living area with no real purpose.

5 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 kitchens. Sometimes there is just me, my husband and my dad, in the summer my girls come home from school. My son and his wife live nearby so they come over alot with my granddaughter.

Sweep/Mop/vacuum: Everyday somebody vacuums the whole house. I have pretty bad allergies and my cats shed like crazy.
Bathrooms: Give them a quick wipe down daily, the kids do their own and not enough for my liking.
Dog poop: Everyday, we use the yard a lot so I pick it up when I see her go.
Lawn care: Once a week..
Counters: Multiple times a day. I use clorox wipes a few times a day after eating or drinking.
Linens/laundry: Every other day. My husband does our laundry, the kids do their own and my dad does his own. We have 2 sets of washer/dryers and it does seem like they are always running.
I have 1 small dog that doesn't shed and 2 big cats that shed unbelievably.

1230sqft, 3br/2ba, 2 adults, 5 dogs, 4 cats

Sweep/Mop/Vacuum: I vacuum at least once a week, but need to get in the habit of doing it 2-3x a week. We have laminate floors in the living room/foyer area, linoleum in the bathrooms & carpet in the hallway and all of the bedrooms. At some point, I want tile in my kitchen & bathrooms and laminate/hardwood in the rest of the house.

Bathrooms: As needed.

Dog poop: Um, never? We have these weird beetle type bugs that eat poops nearly as soon as they hit the ground.

Lawncare: SO mows the yard weekly during the spring/summer and as needed in the fall/winter.

Counters: As needed, after food prep, whenever a mess is made...

Linens: Weekly.

4bdrs, 2 bthrs. Not sure about the square footage but we have two kitchens, two dining rooms, two living rooms, utility room and so on. It is a pretty big house. Right now there is 3 people(2 adults and one baby) and sometimes 4 when my daughter is here to visit. We are hoping soon my sons will join us and that will make 6 people in the house, 2 shepherds and 2 cats.

Sweep/Mop/vacuum: I vacuum once a day unless it is shedding season and then I do it twice a day. Mop once a week, twice if the floor is really dirty.
Bathrooms: Picking up every day, through cleaning once a week
Dog poop: Every 2 - 3 days. We have a potty pen so never have to worry about dog poop in the yard.
Lawncare: Once every two weeks. My partner takes care of that
Counters: After every time we cook or bake
Linens: Once every 2 weeks.
