  • Once a week. I have a cleaning schedule made out to where everything in my house ends up getting cleaned once a week, down to the base boards getting dusted and the walls getting washed down. It makes it where I never have to scramble to clean when unexpected company shows.

  • Deep clean? Never. When I was first married I did, since my grandma and mother had, but then I realized that I don't need to scrub down walls and ceiling because with all electric they don't get grime build up, and I never take everything out out of drawers and closet, wash all the stuff I've taken out, and replace.

  • I use, to the best of my ability, to use the FlyLady's system. So, theoretically, never- she rotates all the deep cleaning jobs over a few months. My basement and closets stull get gross so I tend do to those a couple times a year.

  • Normally I deep clean a section of my house every week. Then rotate it every week so my whole house is really clean ever month. But during the summer I'm taking a break from my deep cleaning and will start back up in the fall :)

  • I deep about every two weeks. I'll deep clean a certain area of the house every week so when i do my deep cleaning I don't have to deep clean that area.

  • Right now I just do it by area. So like this month it'll be the kitchen...where everything gets totally pulled out of cupboards, the counters...everything and gets a good scrub down. Next month the living room, the next the bedrooms and so on.

  • Might sound silly, but what do you mean by DEEP CLEAN?

  • Depends on how many little kids I have running through my house that week so it varies.
