Yes I know this has probably been done before
Yes I'm procrastinatinggrin

So which do you do?

I should be doing it just now, but I canr be bothered with the sweaty mess I end up in if I try to do the bedroo. Floor with the sweeping with an old fashioned brush really a heinous crime?
I'll go with the majority

I run the dyson over mine, on the hard floor setting.

You're not going to like this ...sweep THEN vacuum shock .....!!!
However I have several long-haired pets so it's a constant war confused

I always do mine with a broom. Far easier than dragging the vacuum out and round behind me.

Sweep into corner or each room, go round with dustpan.

I prefer hoovering my hard floors, maybe I'm just crap at sweeping but I seem to just end up flicking dust around when I sweep.

You're right Queen, I dont like that!

I'm the long haired one who sheds in this house....

Hoovering or the dust just seems to go into the air and then resettle.

vacuum! Sweeping doesn't remove the dust from the cracks in the floor and if you have pets, this is especially important as fleas can lay their eggs and hibernate between cracks in the floor for up to 6 months - the vacuum will get rid of them, the broom won't.

Having said that, if you're only bare floors is lino, the broom will be better because the lino sticks to the vacuum and can rip.

We've got a little handheld one which sucks up random crumbs. Much better than a dustpan and brush.

Sweep... Then vacuum and steam at the same time! I just got a bissel vac n steam - best £100 I ever spent!
