DF has been on my case for the past few weeks..... we have construction going on on our home so there are guys walking in and out all day along with us going in and out and our DS and my nephew running around the kitchen all day...... When you come in the front door you hit a SUPER SMALL mud room/laundry room and then you come right into our kitchen, the whole time you are on a linolium floor (which is now brand new). We take our shoes off at the door but I don't expect the construction crew to do the same. Soooo... I sweep my kitchen floor CONSTANTLY all day long, about 5-6 times a day....... my DF calls me CRAZY he says I am being way too anal and just asking for more work because I sweep just to have it get messy and I sweep again. I see no problem with it, I just like to be tidy and keep the mess from traveling all over my house. He was already on my case before when we had the old floor because I would sweep 2-3 times on a normal (no construction) day. We have a cat and two toddlers so the odds of our floor being clean enough to eat off are slim to non as it is, but I would really like it if the food crumbs and dirt from the entry and so on would not be ALL over my house....... So I am just wondering if I am the only one who, on a normal day, sweeps their floor more than once.......

I sweep every other day,normally or just when I think it looks bad and needs it.You have a special situation right now and I don't blame you for sweeping often,I would too.Because you're right,if you don't keep up with it the dirt would be all over the house!

sweepingI am lazy and do not sweep very often, but my dear deceased mother used to have a broom in her hand constantly.  She was a good housekeeper and I admire that quality in a person.

I sweep daily.  My 8 month old is crawling now and our dog sheds so in our family room I usually sweep right before I put her down to crawl.  So in there about 4-8 times daily.  In my kitchen about twice a day.

i usually sweep at least 2 times a day, but i clean constantly...i feel like my house is a complete mess if the kids leave 2 books out on the table :-/

I have a vacuum for the carpets and a vacuum for the tile in our house.  I am super OCD.  Anytime I go into the kitchen and make something or wash dishes I vacuum when I'm done.  I vacuum the carpets when I wake up and then one more time before DH comes home.  I love having a clean house so I am keeping up with it all the time.
