Default Which are messier - hedgies or guinea pigs?

Since guinea pigs are a pretty common pet, I was wondering if anyone on here who has had both could compare the two regarding upkeep.

I know piggies poo -- a lot. And I used to replace pee pads every couple days and full cage liner replacement weekly. But they didn't need bathing like it seems hedgies do. Nor did they run on wheels, so there wasn't daily wheel cleanings. (Is daily wheel cleaning normal for hedgie owners?)

Just trying to get a more realistic feel for the extent of cleaning effort with hedgehogs by comparing to guinea pigs.
