I hate vacuuming - even with dog hair around.

Whenever company is coming, probably.

My wife vacuums all the time, but not the whole house at one time. She probably does like one room every other day or so. On average I would say that each room in the house gets done like once a week.

Lots of cat hair that is why she does it so often.

Once a week. If we don't, the dog hair starts piling up and then we have to spend hours with the Dustbuster to get it up from the floorboards and such.

Not nearly enough.

I tend to do the bulk of my housecleaning late at night when the baby and husband are asleep, but I can't vaccuum since that would wake them up.

I do know I am getting a Roomba for Christmas.

Two teenage boys, two cats and one hubby -- I vacuum at least every other day, sometimes every day, including sofa and chairs. I also clean mostly late at night, but luckily, all 3 of my humans will sleep through the vacuum noise.

About every 2-4 days if I'm on top of it, because of the pets, and depending on the weather. Minumum: weekly and whenever company is coming.

I hardly ever vacuum. But I'm trying to be more diligent and vacuum more often.

At least once a week. I can't stand having the cat hair all over. I should have just told the girlfriend that I was allergic to cats.

The fiance does it on the average of once every three days. She also but one of those new Swifer Carpet Flick things. It will pick up crumbs / hair, etc without having to actually run the vacuum.

I try to once a month or so.. but with a move coming up, and boxes everywhere, I haven't in probably two months. I hope to make it a weekly thing (maybe not the whole house, maybe like half of it a week).

Whenever I think about it, so, never.

Actually I'm living in an all hardwood floor house at the moment, so while I never vacuum (despite having central vacuum), I do sweep from time to time.
