Two years, without vacuuming???? The amount of effort required to remove the hair out of the carpet would't be worth it.....better to have the carpet taken up, the floor well washed with bleach/disinfectant, let dry and then new carpet laid down. The problem with having old carpet and old cat hair is the great possibility of having flea eggs lying dormant in the carpet just waiting for the right heat and humidity conditions to hatch out. Flea eggs can be dormant for a year or more, and so can spores of Ringworm.
