Hey guys,

I was wondering which of these expressions is right:

do the vacuuming
do the vacuum cleaning

Thank you in advance.

    We'd also say "do the vacuuming" in AE. The verb "to hoover," from the name of a leading manufacturer of vacuum cleaners, is BE only. We don't use it on this side of the ocean.
