Default How often do you clean?

How often do you sweep/vacuum/mop/etc, clean bathroom, pick up dog poop, mow the lawn, wipe down counters, wash linens and dog beds, etc? How big is your house, how many beds/baths, how many people and animals living there?

4 bedroom/2.5 bath house, 1800 sf + 900 sf finished basement. 2 adults, 1 dog

Sweep/Mop/vacuum: A couple times a week. More now that I have Neato the robot vacuum
Bathrooms: Whenever I see they need it. We really only use the master.
Dog poop: Never. One small dog, one large yard...it just goes away. If I had kids playing in the yard I'd be more diligent
Lawncare: Once a week in the summer, every other week spring/fall.
Counters: Multiple times a day. After any food prep.
Linens: Every 2-3 weeks? Should be more...but...I'm lazy and hate trekking up and down multiple flights of stairs with laundry.

Weekly. Sometimes I change the sheets on my bed more often if I let the dogs in my bed.

I don't do lawn care and I wipe my counters after each use.

Cali, I'm piggy backing on your format

4 bedroom/2.5 bath house, 2500 sf. 2 adults, 5 dogs!

Sweep/Mop/vacuum: We try to sweep every day. Sometimes it will be every other day. We mop the floors once a week.
Bathrooms: Whenever they need it. I generally wipe down the counters, clean the toilets, and empty the trash once a week. We generally just use our master bathroom, and our 1/2 bathroom downstairs.
Dog poop: Never. All of our dogs are fed a raw diet, and it disintegrates very quickly.
Lawncare: Once a week in the summer, every other week spring/fall. We have a company do it for us, otherwise we'd never keep up on it!
Counters: Multiple times a day. After any food prep.
Linens: Every week, sometimes more often (I love clean sheets!). The dog bedding gets washed on a weekly basis as well.

Awesome format Cali, thank you! Forgot to add, what kind of floors does everyone have?

Technically 3 bed (one of the bedrooms was split shortly after the house was built and is an "office", but we use it as a fourth bedroom. Same size as one of the others), 2 bath, 1638 sqft, unfinished basement. 5 adults, 4 dogs (+ boarding/daycare dogs), 4 cats.

Floors: Hardwood floor throughout, not including bathrooms and basement.
Sweep/Mop/Vacuum: Trying to get into the habit of sweeping or vacuuming daily.
Bathrooms: Downstairs is once per week, upstairs is probably once per month. I don't use the upstairs bathroom much, so I don't remember to clean it. Nobody else does, of course :P
Dog poop: Every day to ever other day.
Lawncare: Lawn gets mowed usually once per week in the summer, bi weekly in the spring/fall.
Counters: I rarely use the counters, so I wipe them down after I use them. Should be more, nobody else does it.
Linens: I shoot for once per week on dog beds and our stuff. Brother hasn't done his in months, parents generally do theirs about once per week. We do regular laundry usually every 4-5 days.

Parents' linens aside, I'm really the only one who does anything as far as housework goes. Rick mows the lawn. I've been slacking a ton lately, but I'm trying really hard to get back into it. I enjoy having a clean house, it's hard when nobody else makes any effort.

I do a deep cleaning of my house every other week or so.

I vacuum once a week or so. I should do it more often but I can't find the energy/time.

We mop every other time or spot mop a lot as per need.

We clean the bathroom by need and deep clean on a rather irregular basis.

I pick up poop twice a week.

Denis mows twice a week, I think.

We wipe down counters daily.

I wash linens as per need or weekly.

I wash dog beds monthly probably or as per need.

We have a tiny sub 800 sqft house, 2/1. Two people and four dogs. We have laminate floors.

2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, hallways are wood.

Kitchen/bathrooms are tile

2 bedrooms (including the master), sunken family room, and full basement are carpet.

I want to get 2 more robot vacuums, 1 for each floor, and program them to run during the day

I totally plan on a robot vacuum when we can afford it.

Those who have the robot vacuums, do they work well? When I was younger I had a friend who had one, and while it was awesome, it'd get mad if it ran into something and just stop.
