I feel like I vacuum all the time! How often do you have to vacuum? I am up to every other day right now in the main areas of the house. The bedrooms I only do once a week or less.

  • i have hardwood floors so I sweep - CONSTANTLY. with a 6yr old, 2 dogs, a cat and a HUSBAND the dirt/hair never ends!! Honestly I sweep every other day and there's enough pet hair each time to make a sweater. SO GROSS.

  • I must be lazy. I only vacuum once a week (or less). Then again, we only have carpeting in our upstairs bedrooms and on the stairs, so I don't think they get as dirty as high traffic rooms do -- like living rooms. We have hardwood floors downstairs, and those I sweep every day (multiple times a day in the kitchen).

  • I generally vacuum once a day. Sometimes I can get away with not vacuuming for a day but will have to do so the next.

  • Haha, I vacuum once a week or less too! I hate vacuuming! We have a Kirby too, it's just really heavy to me.

  • There's a difference between need and do. I need to vacuum everyday. I vacuum a couple of times a week. Did you know vacuum is the only word in English with double u's?

  • I need to vacuum at least 3 times a day. I do a light vacuum in the day, followed by a heavy vacuum later in the day, and one before 10 pm (it's "quiet time" in the apartment complex). I have guinea pigs who kick their shavings out of the cage so sometimes it's more.

  • We have a horrible vacuum (stay away from Bissell brands) so we only vacuum once a week.
