The first day of spring will be here before we know it, and for many Louisianans that means it’s time to break out the cleaning supplies and tackle those chores that you've been putting off since, well, the end of summer.

But a new survey from Lombardo Homes found that only half of the folks in Louisiana - and across the USA -  participate in annual spring cleaning. Even more surprising, almost 4 in 10 say they never do a deep cleaning of their home.

Now to specifics. What’s the number one most hated chore here in Louisiana? According to respondents, it’s the cleaning and sanitizing of bathrooms. Other most hated household jobs include washing dishes, doing laundry, cleaning the refrigerator, and doing yard work.

And many admit to researchers that have mastered the art of procrastination, especially when it comes to the chores they despise. More than 80% say they put off doing those chores that they hate most.

But even our confessed laziness doesn’t mean Louisianans are spending a lot of time doing those chores. Here's the breakdown: 21% said they spend an hour or less on chores in an average week. And only 12% say they put in an average of five hours or more a week on household tasks.

And what about the male / female breakdown of work around the home? Nearly half of the women surveyed say chores fall to them almost 100% of the time, especially if they have kids. Overall, 45% of women say they end up doing the brunt of all the chores, compared to just 24% of men. But - standby for conflicting data - more than half of the men surveyed said they share chores with their wife or significant other. And a mere 19% admitted their partner does all the work.
