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.

I agree. My smaller home is more of a PITA to clean due to overcrowding.

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 don't even know what to say. I am sitting her not sure if there is sarcasm or you are serious.

This post was made based on a conversation I've had with a friend because she cleans houses. Other than the issues like ppd that I've made known, I am doing fine otherwise.

Smaller. No storage place. Keeping my tiny house clean is unreal. I hate it

Generally is say smaller, but in my case bigger, only because there is both hardwood and carpet on both levels, and its a pain in the ass to haul everything up and down the staircase

It was serious. Seeing your post habits and the way you write and things you post make me sad for you. How often do you get out with friends?

 In a bigger place there is more area to clean but I still believe it is harder to keep a small cramped area clean. Not enough storage and the littlest mess appears larger.

Quoting blessed107:

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.

 It is crammed and harder to orgnanize. I lived in bigger places and so much easier-at least for me.

We rent a 3/2 duplex and have a "galley" style kitchen and all it takes is one piece of something on the stove or counter and it looks a mess!

Quoting Canvas_says:


I would agree and say a smaller place is harder to clean and keep clean. In a larger place something like some dishes on the counter won't look quite so bad as it would in a small home making it appear "dirty" or cluttered. A large home has a lot of hiding places. 


 EXACTLY. For us our kitchen is small and so is our sink-so even a few dishes(rinsed) in the sink make it look trashy imo.
