Um...I couldn't really say. It's never been clean to my satisfaction and I'm not sure it ever could be. I have OCD and am very germ-conscious. If the toilet is used a single time after I clean it, it is thrown right back into the 'filthy' category. A "quick sweep" for me can take hours. Probably also because of OCD. I put way too much focus on small details. I can't just put books on a shelf, they must be sorted and arranged in an aesthetically pleasing manner. A task that would take the average person less than a minute can use up the better part of an hour when I do it. It's frustrating but I can't seem to help myself.
Like, the whole house? That never happens.
its never ending
I try to do a little every day. I think to clean all the bathrooms, dust, vacuum all the floors, and mop the kitchen and bathroom floors, it would take me about 4 hours. I haven't done it all in one day for a long while, though.
Deep cleaning my entire house, without interruptions, would take about 2 hours. With my kids in tow, it'll take at least twice that long. And no, I don't clean every day because I work full time during the week. I clean every Saturday; run the vacuum, dust, clean bathrooms, etc. And then about once a month I do a full deep-clean; all of the above, plus washing windows, scrubbing floors, organizing the kids' bedroom, cleaning the furniture, etc.
I rarely do it all at once. I don't clean most things even weekly. I keep up with dishes daily, laundry weekly, the cat box every few days. I vacuum maybe twice a month, vacuum the hard floors weekly, dust... sometimes? I could never do the whole thing in one day- it's usually a weekend thing, but I rotate chores so it is spread out.
It takes me the majority of the day--depending on if I'm deep cleaning or just surface cleaning. Surface cleaning it'll take me two or three hours to straighten everything, do a couple loads of laundry, wash dishes, sweep and vacuum. If I'm deep cleaning it'll take me two or three days sometimes. I'll scrub the floors, walls, counters, toilets, tub and shower. I'll shampoo the carpets. Reorganize things.
Generally I just do surface cleaning. lol
