At what age should the kids be helping clean their rooms? And at what age can they clean their rooms alone?

I have always made my daughter who is 5 clean her room. I try not to go in there and help her but I have to go and clean out under her bed maybe once or twice a month its where all the lost and founds seem to be hiding. Then I sometimes will just looked through her toy box n that's where I will find socks. But other then that she cleans her own room and she puts her own clothes away.

Since my daughter was old enough to walk I taught her to put her toys back in her toy box
She even makes her bed now

That depends on the child. My daughter's been helping me clean her room since she could toddle. Right now she can do it by herself but needs supervision to keep her on track. My 8 and 9 year old niece and nephew clean their rooms by themselves.

 I made Alexis start helping me clean up her room at 2, and she started doing it on her own at 4

Mine clean the living room (their mess) for fear of the dog eating their toys :/  We do the vacuuming but they have to clean stuff up for threat the dog will get it or it is going into the trash...  Mine are 4 and 5. We've been doing this about a year.

 My 5 yo son helps clean his room now. He really won't do it unless I ask him to though. I'm trying to teach him to "straighten" his bed when he gets up also. He likes to help empty the dishwasher, set and clear the table and now wants to help cook!

 My 3 year old cleans his own room.  He shares with my 6 year old (next week) and he does pretty well on his day to clean the room.  But my 6 year old gets the room completely clean.  My 2 and 7 year old share.  My 2 year old knows how to clean but she has to have someone to redirect her attention back to cleaning.
