How often does everyone change their substrate?

I have a few inches of coco coir in the bottom, and I’ve topped that with like a half inch of cypress mulch. The enclosure stays around 80-90% humidity, and I’ve been super lucky not to find any mold. She usually poops in her water, but any ground poops are removed posthaste. Mostly because I lurk outside her house watching like a creepy stalker all the time.

So feasibly, how often should I do like a 100% substrate change?

I only do it when the tortoise is moved out of that enclosure - about once a year.
