We have a dark beige/brown carpet that shows every crumb. How often do you Hoover?

Dp's socks leave lots of tiny black flecks on the carpet which are a right pain to try and get off.

Feel like I Hoover all the time butnta never enough! It needs doing everyday, I would of I had time!

Most days!!!! Tis a pain in the arse but I only do the downstairs every day, middle and top floor 2-3 times a week [if I can be bothered to carry the Hoover up two flights wink]!

Every day downstairs, twice a week upstairs/on the stairs (tho do the stairs more often in the hols when we are here all day!)

If I miss a day downstairs it looks sooooooo gakky. We have moved to a bigger house but it still only takes about 10 mins. Sometimes I (well DD actually) sweep the kitchen floor instead but still need to hoover the living room etc.

Every day downstairs, 3 DCs so a necessity really!

Upstairs at least twice a week.

Every day, sometimes twice a day.

I ban sausage rolls from my house, too

spottymoo Sun 21-Apr-13 11:54:45

Every day down stairs and once a week for the stairway / bedrooms

I don't have carpet so I sweep. Should really buy a hoover. Clean lot my floor with floor wipes and this removes all dust.. maybe I should hoover though???

Every day down stairs and top to bottom once a week.

AdoraBell Sun 21-Apr-13 12:55:41

Most days. We also have light carpet but it's oatmeal with a twist, more forgiving than the plain dark blue we had before.

Could you buy DP a pair of slippers as a huge subtle hint, would he wear them?

pumpkinsweetie Sun 21-Apr-13 12:58:51

Everyday downstairs as cannot get away with anything less with 4dc who have an affection for crisps & cake grin

Upstairs, when i can be bothered, roughly every fortnight and sometimes once a month blush
Reading that back sounds embarrassing, i best get the hoover out this evening if i remember

Sounds like my deep red wine carpet, shows up everything, you can hoover it then in 10 mins later its covered again, so i tend to hoover every single day, but if you came here you would think i have not hoovered that day lol xxx

Everyday downstairs (sometimes twice)
Upstairs once a week.

Bunbaker Sun 21-Apr-13 13:12:18

Once a week. That makes me sound like a slattern, but we don't wear shoes indoors, we don't have any pets and DD is now 12 and pretty sensible. We also have carpets that don't show up every single speck of dirt.

Whole house weekly, with a whizz around any mucky bits with the DustBuster in between.

Daily downstairs on carpets, sweep every other day on hard floors downstairs and weekly upstairs and on stairs.

EuphemiaLennox Sun 21-Apr-13 13:31:16


Cleaner does it once a week.

I'm more of a avoiding-making-the-mess-in-the-first-place person. We don't have food anywhere except in the kitchen and dining room which have lino and wood floors.

Tell your DP he has to wear slippers or deal with the mess he's making.

Is it one room in the house with the dark carpet? I would just restrict food to the kitchen/dining area.

Every day roomba

Roomba does downstairs whenever needed and upstairs once a week. It's a godsend!

MrsBucketxx Mon 22-Apr-13 16:39:03

VitoCorleone Mon 22-Apr-13 16:49:33

Livingroom 2-3 times a day

Stairs and bedrooms about 3-4 times a week.
