Here's one I've never heard. We were visiting my parents this weekend for my birhday, I turn 37 today, and we ended up on the subject of cleaning. I mentiond that we vacuum once a week. My mom said that you should vacuum the number of times per week as people, or pets, you have in your house. For example if it is you, your spouce, and three kids you should vacuum five times per week. I told her that sounds like an old wives tale and of course she could not remember where she heard it but insisted it was true.

I changed the subject. I figured no point arguing over something that silly. I was wondering if anyone else had heard this.

I've never heard that one before - my house includes me, my husband, and 8 cats (and if we're counting ALL pets, two fish). No way am I vacuuming that much! [Eek!]

I have a hubby, 2 boys, 2 cats. I have to vacuum every day just for the cats alone! I'd say the math works out about right for my house, but we have a lot of shedding going on and kids at the messy eating stage.

Living with a long haired German Sheppard, long hair cat, & long hair wife [Wink] , not to mention two parrots and various foster animals, I can agree with this legend. Vacuuming twice a week isn't enough to keep ahead of the hair right now. And I curse the bagless vacuum that only holds half a room full of pet hair.

For the record I have not heard of that legend. (But can see where it would come from.)

I've never heard that and it sounds excessive to me. In my case that would currently have me vacuuming five times a week (two adults, two kids, and a cat). I have a three story house with all wood floors and it takes an entire afternoon to vacuum the whole thing--no way could I do it that often.

It's probably better to vacuum whenever you see a significant amount of debris on the floor. In my house, with a 13 month old who leaves a trail of crumbs and will eat nasty things left on the floor, it needs to be done once a week.

I wonder if that recommendation was originally from vacuum salesmen (with the idea that the more you vacuum the faster the cleaner will need to be serviced or replaced)?

Yeah, that'd be a lot of vacuuming for us...two people (soon-to-be 3) & 5 pets. I think 1-2 times per week for us is more than enough. Especially using the allergen-reducing carpet powder...it helps the environment for our pet-allergic friends & it smells great.

We have just me, my wife and a golden/lab mix. She has shorter hair than a golden retriver, she has the hair lenth of a lab but she still sheds quite a bit. For us vacuming once a week works. Although our vacuum cleaner might dissagree. Sometimes we have to use the shop vac to pick up the dog hair because the regular vacuum gets clogged. I'd agree, you should vacuum when you see a significant amount of dirt. I should also ad that my mom is a neat freak. Her house is spotless. My mother in law has the same problem. Now my wife and I are not slobs but our house looks like someone actually lives here.

I was just wondering that, Mad Jay. Surely my two cats would spread their hair over a large house slower than my small apartment, thus making me need to vacuum less often.
Thanks to zman for reminding me that I didn't vacuum this weekend, and that's probably why the living room smells like cat.

That OWT may have been a rule of thumb in times gone by when vacuums were a fraction as powerful as now. From some research I did before buying our Dyson, I would surmise that vacumming too often with a modern heavy-duty unit would weaken the carpet fibers and cause premature wear.

People or pets, or people and pets? With three people and four cats, for a total of seven, that sounds about right to me.

Oh wait -- per week?!? I vacuum seven times per year!

Isn't there a rule somewhere that 2 cats equals to 1 dog as far as messiness and wear and tear goes? So, if you are counting pets, you should divide the number of cats by two

Heh... your mom wouldn't want to set foot in my apartment for fear of the little things that would stick to her feet! [Wink]

But such "logic" makes me wonder about the households out there who have more people/pets than there are days in the week. I'm reminded of a show I saw advertised a while back where a couple had 14 children, pregnant with twins, which put their entire family size at 18. Not sure if they had any pets, but I can't imagine vacuuming almost 3 times a day! [Eek!]

Blue Fuzzy and Little Molly - perhaps we can start a secret society, identified by one dirty soled foot perhaps.

I have been living in my current home for 2 and a half years, and have vacuumed roughly the same number of times. I can't say I recommend it though, in fact if the floors hadn't got so bad they overwhelm the vacuum I might be tempted to clean more often. Last time I tried it just kept over heating, and the clean patch made the rest of the floor look worse.

I am thinking of giving in and having my floors proffesionally cleaned, in the hope that I will then be able to cope.

In the mean time I am wearing my slippers....

I still think it is better to live with dirty floors than actually worry about these things though.

ETA - The OP doesn't really sound like an urban legend, more a rough rule of thumb (used by the very clean).

I never used to vacuum that often until I got my dog. He sheds so heavily that I really should vacuum once a day because otherwise the hair winds up EVERYWHERE and my nose gets stuffed up from allergies. I have a one-bedroom apartment so this takes less than 15 minutes.

Before I had the dog I vacuumed once every month or two.

Surely the "pets" rule applies to furred animals? I doubt fish add any dust to the household.

Although if you consider all pets (including reptiles) in this rule, my boyfriend would be vacuuming 8 times a week. If we lived together it would be 10 times a week. If the family dogs lived with us instead of his parents, we'd be vacuuming twice a day.

We charge ours rent. Seriously my mom dosn't like comming to our house because it is "too messy". The last time she complaind I siad, "Your more than welcome to help clean if you would like". She never said another word. The dog hair bothers her. Unlike most of our friends my mother does not see the dog as a member of the family. She just cannot see how you could allow a dog on the furniture. Our dog is our baby and my mom actually tries to correct us when we use that term to discribe her. If we did not have a dog we probably would not vacuum once per week. We'd be lucky if we did it once per month. As I said, our house looks lived in.

My mom is a neat freak, She has a fit if there is one crumb on the floor. I recall growing up she would go in to a complete fit if one crumb was on the floor. "This house is a disaster." Would be her statement and if you pointed out how one crumb on the floor does not make the whole house a mess she'd yell and scream about how no one takes her seriously. My experience with neat freaks like this is that when you point it out to them they throw a temper tantrum.

My MIL is the same way. Probably why cleaing the house is not at the top of our priority lists. My MIL had to vacuum the entire carpet in the living room before we could watch a NASCAR race because she saw one crumb on the floor. ONE CRUMB. Then got mad when we pointed out how ridiculous that was.

I'm all for haveing a neat house but some people take it a little foo far and I get it from both sides of the family.

zman... any chance your mom might be having some kind of mental/emotional problems? Often times people are neat freaks either because they're obsessive and worried about germs and that sort of thing... or because they feel like so much of their life is out of their control that the one thing they do have control over is how clean their house is... and by golly, they're not gonna do a half-assed job!

I'm not trying to cast aspersions or anything... myself, I come from a terribly untidy background. Not filthy--we never had food ground into the carpet or slices of pizza under couch cushions or anything--but just piles and piles of stuff that we probably don't really need. [Smile]

One of my cousins is a neat freak. He had come to stay with me, and he would get on his knees to pick up crumbs of the floor. That wierded me out. I was thinking "Leave my NFBSKing crumbs alone. These are my crumbs"

Hubby is a neat freak when it comes to the carpet, and yet he has piles of stuff all over the place. The piles drive me nuts when I dust, which happens maybe once every couple of weeks. He's in charge of vacuuming, and that happens about the same amount as me dusting.

Happy Birthday zman. I have never heard this rule of thumb about how often to vacuum but I have heard one about mopping. A friend told me that when you walk across the kitchen floor and your sock sticks to the floor and is pulled off it is time to mop the floor.

In my experience older vacuums clean better. I'm not sure why this is, but it is true of other appliances too, like mixers and blenders.

I don't remember the model name, but it's a purple one, and it's been the most reliable vaccum we've owned. There's one place on the bottom where dust tends to jam over time, but you can take it apart with a screwdriver and clean it out.

I do not vacuum. DH or kids vacuum, because according to DH I don't do it right. He can cheerfully spend 3 hours vacuuming the family room and dining room (it took me 15 minutes).
Don't get the idea that he's a neat freak, though. Ex was a neat freak. When he came home from work, he'd get the glass cleaner, clean the TV screen, the glass panes in the coffee table, the mirror over the couch, and the glass doors on the TV stand. Then he'd get the dusting wand and dust all the wood in the living room and dining room. THEN he'd take the dustbuster and the glass cleaner out to his pick up and vacuum it out and clean all windows. After that, he'd kiss me hello. If I wanted to go anywhere, I couldn't take his pick up because he'd already cleaned it. If I even took it to the store and back, he'd have to go through the whole truck-cleaning proceedure again.
Come to think of it, its not too hard to understand why he's my ex!
