Your cleanliness offends me!

March 12th, 2013 · 84 comments

“When my downstairs neighbour first moved in, I thought we would be friends,” says our submitter in Montreal. “We go to the same school, we’re around the same age, and we both love pets. (I have a cat and a dog, she has four cats.)” And yes, she says, “Every day — after 10 a.m., before 8 p.m. — I vacuum my house. She can have fun with all her cat-hair dust bunnies — I’ll stick to my cleaning schedule, thanks!”

It is absolutely necessary for you to vacuum every fucking day!!!! Seriously are you such a filthy dirtbag that you make such a mess every day??? I've been listening to you vacuum for months. GIVE IT A REST! HAVE SOME COMMON DECENCY FOR YOUR NEIGHBOURS!!!

Like our submitter in Montreal, I’ll admit that, as the owner of a dog who sheds quite a bit, I also vacuum pretty much every day. So if that makes me a “FILTHY DIRTBAG,” I guess I prefer that to becoming like “Dirty Lady #2.

      I had the best neighbors who were compassionate about me working night shift and vacuuming/cleaning clothing at odd hours. I would do my best to be quiet and hurry up and vacuum at 9 p.m.

      Well… that’s the thing about “reasonable hours”… some of us sleep until later in the day and work at night, or stay up doing online school work at night… so I’d have no problem with them doing it at 2am but would be cranky if I was woken up at 10 am… but in the past when I had roommates, I at least just persuaded them to wait until the afternoon… and now my upstairs neighbour has a quiet, small vacuum so I barely hear it – yay

      But really, I have a shedding dog AND an allergy to fur… but *I* don’t vacuum EVERY day… that does seem excessive…. maybe she should get her animals trimmed and brush them more often if they shed THAT much.

      I agree with Marie here. I have three dogs and four cats, plus an allergy and I can get away with vacuuming every week or two weeks, except when the pups are blowing their coats, but even then, it’s not DAILY, that’s what brushes are for! Jimminy crickets.

      They shed crumbs…. oh good lord the crumbs!

      Then they go back and eat them no matter how long they have lain there for. They find cheerios they stashed in the dustiest corner last week (where you would never look for them) and eat that dustio right up. Nom nom, indeed.

    I used to vacuum daily because I loved to see the lines left by the rollers. Of course, my family would stroll through and ruin my masterpiece. So I ripped up the carpet and refinished the hardwood floors underneath. That’ll show them!

      Even if I didn’t have carpets, I would still own a vacuum; mostly because we payed a ridiculous amount of money for the industrial vacuum I have, and by golly, I’m gonna use it! But, it is nice for dusting the baseboards and the cobwebby corners of the ceiling, and no amount of sweeping ever gets that last little line of dust into the dustpan. However, if I had no carpets, and didn’t already own a vacuum, I could see not bothering to invest in one.

      I have hardwood floors, and I love them. They get swept and mopped. But I still have a vacuum because it’s very handy. I use the regular vacuum for my area rugs and I use the handheld vacuum for chasing the giant tumbleweeds of cat hair (and sometimes, the cats).

      Then I have a shop vac for the utility room and litterbox area, and a dedicated handheld vacuum for those horrible brown marmorated stink bugs.

      No carpets here, and I definitely can’t live without a vacuum. I need it for my furniture, as my pug and furball cat shed way too much and sleep on my couches like 23 hours per day.

      Man, vacuuming every day, I wish I had the patience for that. My asthma would probably be less aggravated, anyways.

    I would be sweet justice if, when the note recipient moved out, a hoarder moved in and accumulated so much stuff that the ceiling collapsed on the note writer.

    What *is* it with people who live on non-top floors? NEWS FLASH: if people live above you, you’re going to hear them. If they’re blasting Dre at 2AM, you have a legitimate complaint (but only sort of…the good Dr. is highly preferable to some other options). If you’re nice and request reasonable things (like not putting cell phones on the floor on vibrate at late hours…oh, and in person, after bringing over a pie or bottle of wine or whatnot and a list of “things to know” about the neighborhood and building – like the best restaurant and the *one* dryer that works well, not a copy of the rules – to ACTUALLY welcome the new neighbor), you’re likely to get it. But if you don’t want to hear vacuuming or walking or other normal life activities, then MOVE TO THE TOP FLOOR! (I write this as someone who has lived on a lower floor for the last *7* years, and ALWAYS gotten reasonable accommodation from my upstairs neighbors)

    It’s very possible that the upstairs neighbor has severe allergies and pretty much has to vacuum all the time to keep them under control. Or they could just like vacuuming. They want bad neighbors? I shared a bedroom wall with a couple who played the song Sweet Dreams full-blast almost 24 hours a day. They just kept it on repeat. Compared to that, everything else seems trivial.

    I vacuum pretty much every 2nd day, note writer will probably hate me too…and every 2 months or so I bring out the carpet cleaner. Holy shit that is loud.

    Which is why I always try to do the vacuuming well into the afternoon when people will be awake and night workers would have gotten at least some sleep.

    I also mow every 2 weeks.

    I’m guessing I must be a dirty slob for cleaning…so often….I think I lost the note writers thought process there. Team vacuuming when I need it*

    *which, with 2 shedding rabbits, a shedding cat and a very large, shedding dog, is every other day. It’d be every day but we’re lazy.

      I spent $1,200 on a Morris chair and $3,500 on a mission-style couch because the cats won’t scratch their wooden arms. I also bought a desk that I don’t need so that the cats can sit in the living room window, a $200 two-level mission-style cat seat so that they have a place to sleep in the kitchen, and a 100% wool rug for the living room because that’s what cats prefer to sleep on in front of the fireplace.

    I don’t know how to feel about this. Of course the person gets to do what they want at reasonable hours. And depending on your life situation, vacuuming every day might be normal or necessary. At the same time I know I wouldn’t like to listen to it every day, and I personally have no reason to vacuum often.

    Probably a case in which I would simply quietly move out at the end of the year, without saying a word about it.

    I once had a neighbor who vacuumed constantly. No pets, that we could hear (or the landlord saw on monthly visits spraying for pests) and it was a father and son who worked alternating shifts at Walmart. I complained to my friends, who laughed until they would come over and hear the vacuum upstairs at least once an hour. It’s been years since I’ve lived there, and we still wonder what the hell they were doing to need to vacuum that much…

      Once my former neighbour (the Russian Mafia Princess) asked to borrow my vacuum as she “couldn’t find” hers. I lent her mine but couldn’t figure out how you could lose a vacuum in an underfurnished five-room Pullman-style apartment. It was only after I got it back, and shortly thereafter she and her roommate did a midnight flit with several of the building’s fixtures, that I began to wonder exactly why she wanted my vacuum over her own and what exactly was at the bottom of my vacuum bag. I was too creeped out to look. I wasn’t sure whether I was going to find cocaine or fragments of bone and teeth.

    If the vacuuming occurs at reasonable hours, as with this case, there’s really no reason to get so upset about it.

    However, I live on the bottom floor with someone above me who vacuums at *least* twice a day, and *always* after 10pm and/or before 7am. I have problems sleeping anyways, so getting woken up at 6:30am to a loud vacuum? NOT fun.

    (And no, we can’t just “move to another floor!” if we don’t like the noise. My mom is handicapped and cannot climb stairs.)

      And people always disbelieve me when I say life situations might sometimes require you make compromises and live somewhere that isn’t your 100% happy spot…

      We believe you.

      It comes down to how much others should be expected to adjust their life for our circumstances.

      Asking someone not to vacuum after 10PM, (or before noon, or other reasonable request) is fair.

      Asking people to be quiet as church mice because you have to life on the first floor wouldn’t be.

      The point in between where reasonable becomes unreasonable is the real point of contention.

      Most of the time, noises like vacuuming and other heavy cleaning, music, etc. should be kept to reasonable hours out of courtesy, no matter what floor you live on. A one-off move-in or repair (man, those contractors get going early…here they’re allowed to start at 7 AM and damned if they didn’t show up at 6:50 when I had them in recently…sorry to the neighbors, but it’s happened only once in 4 years) is an exception, and should be tolerated. But if you want them to respect you, then RESPECTFULLY request that they do so. I can sleep through a lot (or be woken by it and go right back to sleep), but I’ve always requested no high heels and no cell phones on the floor during sleepy time from my upstairs neighbors (hardwood floors are a given here), and always gotten it MOST of the time, plus basic courtesy like turning the TV down and not installing shelves at Midnight, because I was NICE to the neighbors. I’m sure there are jerks out there who just don’t care and will do whatever they feel like, but I’ve found that if you make yourself a respectable person and treat others with kindness, if you make a small request of them, they’ll oblige. Bonus, if YOU have a jerky moment (like when I came down with bronchitis about 2 years ago and, instead of nasties from the neighbors over the constantly LOUD coughing that lasted over a week, got constant knocks on the door asking if I was okay and if there was anything they could do to help me, sometimes accompanied by soup or tea), they forgive or make a reasonable request for consideration and move on.

      Thank you for bringing this up. My mom has to live on the bottom floor, too, and she has a neighbor that does laundry at 2 in the morning. In what I can only assume is the oldest washing machine in the world. If I had the money I’d buy them a new one.

    so they have FOUR cats? how big is the place? depending on the breed of cats, I don’t see anything wrong with daily vacuuming unless it is during indecent hours.

    whoever wrote this note seems to have a selfish outlook.

    I have to vacuum everyday in order to silence the voices in my head. I chase them down with the vacuum cleaner and they go away. I have to vacuum again when they return.

    If she does it quickly then no, vacuuming once a day is not that big of a deal, jeez. And it’s definitely something you can just talk to her about directly.

    Oh, and quit being an asshole, thanks.

    I’m willing to give the benefit of the doubt here that there’s possibly more to it. I live below an older (well 60s) lady that vacuums every morning around 4:30 a.m. and yes it gets pretty aggravating.

    I live below an elderly lady who does laundry at 7:00 am EVERY F&CKING MORNING. Seven days a week. There are no words.
