Carpet Cleaning Tampa: Do Your Carpets Really Need Cleaning?

We’ll keep it short and to the point today because we’re not looking to incite panic, but if you have to ask if your carpets really need cleaning, here are a few things you should know…


The Norovirus can remain living in your household carpets for between four to six weeks and every time someone walks across the carpet, it becomes airborne!


Your carpet can hide as much as 1lb of dirt in a single sq.yd…no wonder old carpets are so heavy! Yuck! Wondering what that dirt is comprised of? Believe us when we tell you that you don’t want to know. What we will say, however, is that if you see the color of the water that comes out of your carpet when it’s cleaned…well…you won’t leave it so long between cleanings next time!


According to Men’s Health magazine, a single square inch of carpet can hold around 200,000 bacteria! Own a pet or a young child and you can expect that number to be higher!


It’s not just bacteria and viruses hiding in that carpet you love so much, dust particles, pollen, and other allergens. If you or anyone in your home is prone to allergies or asthma, the number of allergen particles that collect in your carpets can easily put you in respiratory distress and contribute to worsening of asthma.


Poorly cared for carpet can easily develop mold simply because it’s so absorbent! Regular vacuuming and a deep cleaning each month can keep that mold at bay and ensure that you don’t face a major mold infestation!

Reduced Carpet Life

When you don’t keep your carpets clean regularly, the amount of dirt etc. that builds up and makes your carpet so heavy also flattens the carpet pile and leads to a much shorter life for your carpet!


Yup, we said skin. The average person sheds over 100lbs. of skin during their lifetime. Those tiny flakes are rarely visible as they drop from your body or when they land on your carpet. Now take a moment to think when the last time you had your carpets professionally cleaned was…we’re hoping for your sake that it was at least before you moved in!


Yes, it only gets worse…If you own a pet, then the chances are that you have spent time cleaning up “poo paw” at least once during their lifetime. The problem is, though, that even when you clean up that paw, tiny particles of feces can remain on their paws and get tracked into the carpet.

Don’t have a pet? Don’t think you get away unscathed! Your own shoes and those of guests can even track in feces on their shoes!
