It is quite evident that the advancements in technology have helped save time and effort when cleaning our homes, compared to chores in the 50s.

In fact, housewives in the 1950s spent 42 hours a week doing general housework and another 15-20 hours doing deep cleaning.

Today however, the average person may spend 1 to 2 hours a day cleaning to keep things tidy, with the kitchen being the most frequently cleaned room in the home. This significant decrease is partly due to the increase in duel income families, the distribution of chores and of course, the advancements in technology.

Of course, there is not right or wrong answer when it comes to the number of hours you should be spending on housework each week. The hours will vary according to the size of your home, the number and age of the children living in the home, whether or not you have pets and the amount of furniture and décor in your home.
