For avid skaters, meaning you skate to and from school and skate on the weekends, checking lubricants every 2-3 weeks is a good rule of thumb. Bearings may need to be cleaned every 3-4 weeks. For those who skate about 1-2 days a week, you can stretch out the maintenance by lubricating every 4-6 weeks, and cleaning every 2 months. Before you begin cleaning skateboard bearings it is best to see if the bearings are worth cleaning first. Sometimes bearings get too damaged and are better off replaced than trying to clean them.

I, for one, never clean my bearings. I probably should tho
I can see me using lube when needed (shut up! lol!) but I'm too low maintenance to take apart my wheels. Plus my local shop takes good care of its customers. I'll let them clean and change my bearings. Good video, though.
I do but I don't go all crazy and take them apart like a lot of people do
@KTM2014 Yeah this is pretty intense
