    What is your cleaning routine?

    Swiffer? Dry mop? daily? weekly? Wet mop?

    I sweep my laminate daily and once a week I will wash it with a wet rag, does the trick.

    I want one of those roombas to chase my cats around all day and pick up their fur lol.

    I want a Roomba when we put in the floors downstairs, but I think it would commit suicide, or chase down the dog and murder him for all the hair he sheds. I can just picture the damn thing chasing Polaris in circles all day trying to clean up after him.

    lol I thought it would commit suicide off the stairs as well but it has a sensor for that. It does not chase animals but animals surely doesn't like romba. Keira eyes it with anger but didn't attack it yet. She mostly avoids it.

    I used those fluffy type push brooms like what the Janitor used to use? They come with a blue sweeper head & can be bought at Walmart lol. Anyways that Laminate does not like to get wet but it can handle a damp mopping every once in awhile. Like every couple of weeks roughly if needed.(meaning if something gets spilled). If you have a big spill soak it up immediately or it will ruin the flooring. Hopefully they didn't put it in a kitchen or the bathroom ha.

    We sweep once a week and I use the Shop Vac every few weeks. We have a Swiffer wet jet but all it does is push the dust bunnies around. It's good for cleaning spots on the floor after we sweep. It's almost impossible to keep on top of cleaning laminate floors. As soon as we clean ours, we notice more dust tumble weeds. I only use a wet mop on the kitchen floors.

    You will clean houses all day for $12.50 per hour, please move to alberta. We have had to pay ours at least $20hr and most of them do a shitty job.
