  • I have a 3 bed, 2 bath house (about 1450 sq feet) and I clean a little each day...but honestly, lately it has only been keeping up with laundry, dishes, cat box, and toilets. Today we ALL worked on it for about 3 hours (2 of the kids, DH, and I), and it isn't anywhere near spotless by any means. I work 2 jobs, DH works from the time I get home until well after midnight and we homeschool, and those are the priorities. I try to keep it at a level that I wouldn't be ashamed if someone came to the door, but it's been on the edge for the last couple weeks LOL!

  • My house is under 600 sq ft and I have to clean every day - otherwise the house looks trashed. Somedays it takes very little time, other days when there is more clutter (aka kids junk) it takes longer.

  • Our house in WA (with my ex ) was 5800 sq ft. Now my house in TX feels tiny 2400 sq ft but I also have a small cottage in WA that is 1450 sq feet. I feel like I clean about 2 hours a day and more on the weekend.

  • 1780square feet. Only 2 people live here. We are not that dirty. I clean it by the room. When I feel the need to.

  • 985 sq ft, 2 bd/2bath. Our main issue is clutter since we are packed in here and my girls have way too many toys. It takes a couple of hours for a through cleaning. 30 min or so to tidy up.
