    "Cleaning the house is one of my everyday tasks."
    Now your sentences are good.

    'Everyday' is an adjective.

    'Every day' is an adverbial phrase.

    Perhaps "daily" would work well instead of "everyday".

    Does this apply in general? or just in the sentences mentioned above? I thought they meant the same thing, it's just the one is constructed as a single word and the other separate.

    They don't mean the same thing.

    'Daily' is both an adjective and an adverb, so it works well instead of 'everyday' and 'every day'.
