How often to you have to vacuum/sweep and mop the floors in your house? I only have a chihuahua for a pet, who sheds a minimal amount, but it's my daughter who makes huge messes on the carpets! Tiny shreds of paper, crumbs she drags around, the list goes on. I almost need to vacuum and sweep twice a day!

Well there should be 2 different questions here.. how often do you HAVE too.. and how often DO YOU lol...

I have 2 cats (1 short hair, 1 medium hair) and then a chocolate lab mix that sheds like crazy... It seems no matter how often I vacumn, sweep, steam the floors.. they end up looking like crap within 24 hours! I can never get rid of my animals but YEESH it's hard to keep up with them and my 6 week old DS.

My parents have this problem. They have 2 big black dogs, and light hardwood floors. (WHITE tile in the kitchen!!) They have one heck of a time keeping up with the hair. My SO HATES animal hair at all - but like I said we only have a chihuahua and she has short hair and it's barely visible, only when she lays in one spot on the couch for a day - so I just vacuum it up before he gets home most the time so I don't hear any complaining :) heheh

i chose less than once a week.  cause i leav it for my MIL she owns two dogs and they make way more hair than my cats.  I do the kitchen just about everyday and the bath rooms.

 We have a labrador, 2 kids &  a pool.  Our yard is a muddy mess when it rains.  Much of the time, my kitchen floor looks like someone was murdered.

We clean our floors at least 2 times a day..we have pets and if we didn't, it would get out of control.

Every day the living room gets vacuumed, by me, the kitchen floor gets mopped by me. Everyday the dining room area rug gets vacuumed by the boys 3 times a day, after breakfast, after lunch( on days when they don't have school) and after dinner, that is one of their chores they each vacuum after a meal, because they are the ones that make the biggest mess. Bedrooms get vaccumed, 2 times a week and the dining room where the area rug isn't gets mopped 2 times a week. Did that make any sense what so ever?
