Is it harder to clean a BIG house/ Apartment or a smaller one?

 I say a smaller place(unless that place has so little stuff). There is a lot of moving things around just to sweep. Instead of one big space to sweep and mop(or in my case wet jet because of hardwood) there is a lot of moving everything just to get it clean. This is one example.

For me a large house is more work.
I have 29 rooms to clean in u current house. Thankfully my 2 older children help a lot which makes it a little easier.

I love my big house. I find it easier to clean. I do it every day, so it doesn't take me long at all. Keep in mind, I'm an empty nester. So, no tiny tornados running around. :)

IMO it all depends on how many knickknacks/ dust collectors you have. My mom had a ton and I hated dusting them. Needless to say, I don't collect anything so my shelves are fairly easy to clean. Picture frames are easy :-). Also depends if the person clears out the junk ( donate or throw away unused items. ) They less there is, easier to keep up.

Idk. We live in a 550sqft apartment at the moment. Doesn't take more than 5 mins a day to clean.

We have very little "stuff" though. We live out of a suitcase basically. Few toys, 2 weeks clothes each, we just buy used or really cheap stuff any time we move, then donate it when we move again.

Moving to 3600 sqft tomorrow. NOT looking forward to cleaning it. I'll be working so I'll probably hire someone, in all honesty. It takes too much time away from my family.

Quoting Anonymous:

For real? I swear I have become really worried about you. Have you ever been mentally evaluated?

 LOL seriously over this

It's one thing on my mind and I am getting slighly annoyed by these comments. Make a few posts about ppd and depression and then I everything is under a microscope.

Yes, I am going to be seing a shrink but seriously, this post is just a conversation. I had a friend tell me recently that she cleans houses and how it's so much harder to do the smaller ones, in her experience. I was curious how many would agree with her statement.

I went from a 800 square foot to a 1500 square foot. The smaller was harder to keep clean and organized. I had no room for anything.

I would think a smaller place would. I like for everything to have it's own place. If it were to be smaller it's more crammed and harder to place things or organize.

Depends on storage and junk.
