How often do you sweep your floors?

I try to sweep at a minimum of every other day if not every day. But I have 4 teens, 2 adults and 2 large dogs!

  • this one, i truthfully do EVERYDAY! i'm a indoors-barefoot gal...and i can't stand to feel dirt/etc underneath my feet. i sweep and vaccuum my hardfloors. besides, we go outside constantly, so there's a lot of crap that gets tracked back indoors.

    (just wish i dusted more! lol!)

  • as they need it. Something gets tracked in, I sweep it up. The kids also alternate who sweeps after meals, that's part of their job. They must clean the table & sweep after every meal... I hate for crumbs to get tracked onto my carpet.

  • I have a vacuum that will clean hard floors. I try and vacuum every day, but that doesn't always happen. I HAVE to clean them at least every 2 or 3 days, though. Between a 3y/o and a 1y/o, they get dirty fast! I Swiffer WetJet them at least twice a week.

  • I sweep about 5 times a day. Itdrives me crazy to walk into the kitchen and feel like I am stepping on things!

  • I sweep everday... Tends to get very annoying. I live in *wonderful* (sarcasm) army housing and we don't have one stich of carpet, minus our own rugs. I am with dullscissors, I HATE the feeling of dirt on my feet! Lol

  • At least once/day. My kids sweep every night after supper as one of their chores.

  • 2-3 times a day... If my kids kept their food on their plate for one meal I would faint!

  • I don't sweep unless it is something like when I cut my dogs hair I will sweep that up. I vacuum and I try to do that every day or every other day.
