How often do you clean your home?

I was doing some cleaning today and I got to wonder. I thought, how often do others clean their home? I usually clean my home at least three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I vacuum the carpet 2 times a week, I sweep the floors 3 times a week, I mop once a week, I wash dishes once a day, and I do laundry three times a week. I clean the bathrooms three times a week and I clean my bedroom about 1 every 2 or 3 weeks. I need to clean my bedroom more often though. I like to keep my home free of germs and bacteria, but I know you can't kill all germs, thats why I clean so much. Do I clean up too much? How often do you clean?

I hate housework with a passion. I have so many things to do that are so much more important than housekeeping. I do a thorough cleaning when guests are coming and clean just enough to get by other that that. I wish I had better cleaning habits but I don't and they are unlikely to change in the near future. I am a housecleaning-aphobic I think.

I hate cleaning up for the guests because the house looks worse than what it did before they came.

Im always cleaning! I wash the dishes three times a day I hoover at least once a day bathroom is cleaned every 2-3 days and upstairs is hoovered every other day. I clean the kitchen every other day but wipe surfaces down several times a day and polish the furniture twice a week. I do however have two small children at home always leaving their mucky prints everywhere so that explains away most of the cleaning the rest is me just being picky about how clean everywhere is

I understand about the kids leaving their prints, my 2yr old like to leave her foot prints on the floor after I have mopped. Kids, you gotta love them!

I just live by myself and I rarely have visitors, so I just clean up when I'm in the mood, mostly. But, there are some things that are part of my daily routine such as making the bed and cleaning the dishes. Just about everything else I clean whenever it gets too dirty or when I feel like it. My place isn't too messy, but it's not extremely clean either. When I know someone is coming over, I will clean a little more thoroughly.
