How often do you clean your house?

I have a housekeeper come once every two weeks to do a thorough cleaning. In between, I clean the kitchen and bathrooms (I would say almost every day). And I am always sweeping the floors (we have two dogs) and wipining off tables.

  • I do some things everyday and some things can wait a few days in between. I do the dishes, vacuum, sweep and wipe the counters and table every day, sometimes several times a day. As for bathroom and cleanng the oven and the nitty gritty stuff I usually can go up to a week in between depending on how much they were used. It all just depends, but yes I do atleast some cleaning everyday.

  • I clean something everyday. The kitchen, picking and straightening up, wiping down. I do the deep cleaning every Friday. Did you get your housekeeper through an agency? I hired a housecleaning service for awhile to cone once a week and do my heavy cleaning. I ended up firing them because the agency would send a different girl almost every time, so things were getting done differently each time. 2-3 times they broke or tore up something. I got fed up. If I could get the same person every time, I would probably do it again.
