Cleaning schedule

Just curious to know what people consider as the acceptable minimum frequency for cleaning various things. I'm not asking how often you do clean in each situation, just how often you consider things should be cleaned. I know there's a discrepancy in my schedule and expect that would be true of most other people as well.
