Do you sweep and mop every single day?

I'm trying to get into the habit of at least sweeping every day. This is the first home I've lived in with hardwood floors, so the dirt is *so* much more visible, and it drives me crazy. I don't mop every day though, for some reason it feels like more work to me, lmao.

  • Hahahaha :D I don't sweep every room in the house every day of course good lord no. I pretty much stick to the living room every day, and the kitchen whenever I can manage it. I do a sweep of the whole house maybe once a month.

  • I sweep the kitchen and dining room at least once a day, sometimes more, and mopping only gets done like once a month. If there is a big spill I will mop more.
    I have carpet in the rest of the house and it gets vacuumed once a day in the livingroom.

  • I al also living in an all wood floored house. Upstairs and downstairs...all wood. >.< lol! I miss the days I could just run the vacuum real quick! Yesterday I swept and mopped the whole house. Today, I may sweep the kitchen...but that's about it. There's no way that's an everyday thing! haha.

  • I have two dogs, a child, and a bunch of males running in and out of this house that has no carpet. So, I do own a vaccum (makes it so much easier to clean the floors quickly), and yes, I mop and vaccum the floors every day. But behind stuff like t.v or dresser that is only once a month..I just do a quick mop to have my floors shine.
