How often do you vacuum?

I use to vacuum once or twice a day when my kids were crawling around, but that time has long since passed. I have not been doing a very good job lately. But, I did vacuum last night and then we shampooed (sp?) the carpets. So, now they are all nice and clean. If you don't have babies crawling around how often do you think you should vacuum? How often do you vacuum?

  • I just have a 15x12 rug in the living room but it is dark blue (not my choice but it was brand new and free!) so I have to vacuum every. single. day. I have soldiers, daycare parents and kids walking in and out all day that don't wipe their feet...LOL

  • I vacuum every day now that I have a baby in the house again. Once she is through crawling and putting things in her mouth, I will probably go back to 2 or 3 times a week.

  • When DD was crawling it was every day or two. Now I get to it 2-3 times weekly.

  • At least once a week. I wish I had time to do it more days a week.

  • I have vaccumed 4 times in the living room today. My gosh, our son is so messy. He drops his snacks and cereal on the floor and just leaves it. But I vaccum the entire house 3-4 times a week.
