Do you clean your walls?

I just read the maid question and I'm thinking....I never clean my walls?? If something splatters (is that a word) on them, then I wipe it off right then but to just go around my house and wipe down the wall? nope, I have never done that...the place is to big. Also, no one has ever smoked in my house.

  • Around the stove I do, because grease, food, and other grossness splatters (If not a word, then I use a nonexistant word all the time) all over them. Other then that I have never washed down a wall. The only other time is if something gets up on it and makes a stain/mark. I see no point in cleaning the walls unless it's to dust around the edges.

  • only when my kids make a big mess -- but my SO mainly does it once while because he watches off the coloring that the kids make around and else when we move in he clean the walls because looks like ppl who live here before us used to smoke in the house

  • I wash my walls from top to bottom every year. It just spruces them up and makes them nice and shiny again. I wash the hand prints and other stuff about once every six weeks or so.

  • Sometimes I do- I dont smoke either but that doesnt mean nothing else can make you walls dirty. I cook alot. So Im sure thats another reason I should clean my walls. Then dust and dirt does cake on day after day, If you ever clean your fans alot of dust builds up also. Good question :)

  • I clean them when I see dirt, but the only time I WASH-wash them is before I paint. Which is every year or so....
