JUST HOW DIRTY ARE CARPETS? AND WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
Do you know just how dirty your carpets are? If you really knew the kind of nasties that are living in your carpet rent-free, you would probably start a deep clean right this minute.
No matter how often we hoover or disinfect our carpets and rugs, the fact is they are a breeding ground for all sorts of germs and bacteria, not just in the home but the workplace too!
A study has shown that around 75% of people walk on a carpet with dirty shoes.
That is a lot of dirty shoes traipsing around on carpets, leaving their dirt behind them.
This leads us to the next fact:
The carpet holds up to 4 times its weight in dirt.
Yes, you did read that right. If you never have your carpet professionally cleaned, you can be sure your carpet dirt will outweigh the carpet itself.
So, what is living on your carpet?
Your carpet is absorbing organic matter all day long, which includes.
- Spilled food and drinks
- Dirt, pollen, dust
- Hair, skin cells
- Whatever the kids brought in
- Not to mention what’s the cats dragged in.
When you think about it your carpets and rugs can be a home for all kinds of different germs and bacteria that could cause serious health issues if left untreated, especially for those who suffer from respiratory problems and asthma.
What can you do to keep your carpets germ and bacteria-free?
First and foremost, you must keep your carpets and rugs clean.
Regular vacuuming is a good way to start, twice a week or more if you have pets and little ones. Despite all the claims in the adverts your household vacuum cleaner doesn’t have the power to pull debris from below the surface, the only way to do this is to get your carpets and rugs professionally cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning service.
Deep cleaning your carpets and rugs will remove a thousand times more germs and bacteria from your carpets than vacuuming alone, as well as leaving them smelling fresh as a daisy and looking brand new again. You don’t have to get your carpets and rugs deep cleaned every week, once or twice a year with regular home vacuuming will do the job.

Amazing!! I had my carpet cleaned by Billy yesterday. I really thought I would need a new carpet and thanks to Billy I don’t need a new one and my carpet is sparkling and looks brand new! I would highly recommend Billy and will be doing so to friends and family. Thanks Billy.
I was very satisfied with the job Billy did cleaning my carpet and suite as they were very dirty. This is the second time I have used Billy to clean my carpets and I would recommend him to anyone of my friends.
Thank you so much for making the grotty-looking carpets at my new house look totally amazingly like new and for doing it all at short notice. A totally professional service I will be pleased to recommend to anyone.
My carpets had wine and coffee stains that had been there for a while and couldn’t be removed. I was recommended to use XL Cleaners by a friend and was very impressed by the overall service delivered. Billy was great and made my carpets look like new again. Would 100% recommend this fella to anyone.
