    What do you folks use to keep the floor clean, vacuum cleaner, mains or 12v, dustpan and brush, broom, don't bother 'til you get home?

    Any sensible suggestions considered so that leaves the nutters out of it!

    Sandra cleans the floor with brush and pan every day and as to not bothering until we get home, when we are in the MH we are home.

    I find if it gets very dirty, grassy etc.. a normal brush and pan of no use, so I brush it with a really tough scrubbing brush into a pile then, if at home, suck the pile into the hand held vacuum. Personally the 12v ones don't seem strong enough to do the van properly and the rechargeable dyson I use from home doesn't hold its charge long enough to clean it properly.

    We use one of these on the carpets. They are great and rechargeable. My mum uses one for the carpets upstairs at there house to save lugging the dyson up there.
    I use a dustpan and brush on the vinyl flooring , then give them a wipe with a throw away flash cleaning wipe.
    I like to keep the motorhome clean , so I do it everyday whilst away. We have got 3 kids and two dogs though. We take our shoes off and always clean the dogs down before they go in , but i think it still gets grubby if I dont do it everyday.
    When we bring it home we give it a propper going over with the Dyson.

    We have a small brush and pan and also a 12v hoover we use to keep it clean while away and give it a good clean when home. We have never took the carpets with us so lino just takes a wipe down.

    Brush and dust pan + 12V car vac. We removed the fitted carpets and have vinyl throughout with a couple of mats that we can wash at the Launderette. We live full time in MH. We made this decision after floods from under shower tray soaked the original carpet. Had new floor laid when we had some delamination fixed. We can now wipe up spills easily and spot any plumbing faults quickly.

    Lift mats and shake them outside. A quick brush out and wipe with a wet cloth gets everything back to sparkling.
