Your burning questions: answered

How much does carpet cleaning cost per square foot?

In some cases, a quote from a carpet cleaning company will depend on the square footage of the room. The lower end of these prices will be between $0.15 and $0.20 per square foot, and they may rise as high as $0.40-$0.50 per square foot. Factors raising the price include the carpet’s condition (are there stains?) and whether they have to clean carpeted stairs, which take longer.

To find out how much it will cost clean your carpets, request cost estimates from pros near you.

Which is better: steam cleaning or shampooing carpet?

Both steam cleaning and shampooing are tried-and-true methods for getting dirt and stains out of your carpets. The methods are different, however.

Steam cleaning will remove dirt from your carpets via hot water extraction, while shampooing requires scrubbing. If you’re in a time crunch, or if you just have one or two small spots that need to be removed, shampooing may be a better option, as it allows you to spot-clean small areas. Both steam cleaning and shampooing make your carpets wet, so you will need to allow for time for the carpets to dry. 

Contact carpet cleaning pros near you, and discuss the best options for your carpets.

Is it worth getting carpets professionally cleaned?

Purchasing a steam cleaner yourself may help to remove stubborn stains, but it simply won’t match the deep clean and efficiency that comes from hiring a professional carpet cleaner. Pros have powerful tools that can quickly remove even the most stubborn stains. 

If you’re selling your home, clean carpets can make your home more appealing to prospective buyers. And the expense is offset when you consider that you only need to get your carpets cleaned about once a year. Plus, professional carpet cleaning can extend the life of your carpets, saving you money in the long run.

How long does carpet cleaning take?

Given the way it can transform the carpet, cleaning happens remarkably quickly. You can expect an average size room to require about 20 minutes to thoroughly clean.

The job could take longer for several reasons. If the stains are widespread or particularly deep, the professional cleaner might need to spend more time removing them. They may also need to take time to move furniture out of the way.

How long does it take for carpet to dry after cleaning?

After a cleaning, you can expect your carpet to remain slightly damp for between six and 12 hours. You can expect the lower end of this figure if the air is dry, there’s plenty of air circulation or the temperature isn’t too low in your house. However, for humid environments or lower temperatures, your carpet could stay damp for longer.

What is dry carpet cleaning?

Dry carpet cleaning uses very little moisture to clean carpets. Instead, this method uses compound cleaning agents to loosen dirt that might be trapped in the carpet’s fibers. It’s an effective way to remove stains from soiled carpets.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a professional carpet cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Set up a virtual appointment to discuss the scope of work. Conducting the consultation over video conference or phone call will ensure that you remain within the CDC's social distancing guidelines

Start by messaging a professional steam cleaner or carpet cleaner near you, and ask them if they would be willing to talk by phone or video call. Be sure to ask them how they handle payments and what precautions they have in place to keep you and your household safe. 

How can I find out if a professional carpet cleaner is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Local and federal governments are currently in the process of defining essential services guidelines, and it’s best to read them to see whether professional carpet cleaning or steam cleaning is considered essential. A good place to start is with your city or state’s government website.

The CISA's Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors on a federal level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a professional carpet cleaner or steam cleaner when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a carpet cleaner or steam cleaner, follow all guidelines surrounding social distancing, sanitize any involved surfaces, ventilate indoor areas where workers have been and use digital payment services instead of cash or a check. Before the pro arrives at your home, create a plan with them to make sure everyone in the household stays safe.

Do professional carpet cleaners or steam cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

While cleaning services such as professional carpet cleaning or steam cleaning are not typically done remotely, many businesses and professionals are making changes to accommodate the CDC's social distancing guidelines. If you come across a carpet cleaner’s profile and it states they’re offering remote services, contact the cleaner to see what those services include.

Customer service was excellent and Chris communicated with us until his arrival. The reason for the poor review is are carpets were no cleaner than when he showed up. We still had the exact high traffic stains, other stains, and had to rent a carpet cleaner right after he left. The water that we pulled out of the carpet was extremely dirty. The method which Chris uses only brushes the surface of the carpet. That's not what we were expecting. Chris was very professional and worked hard, but our carpets did not get clean.

Chris did a good job on our carpet. It is important to know that the cleaning service is not a deep carpet cleaning. He was knowledgeable. He was running a little late but did call to let us know. All in all a good experience!

We were beyond pleased with Robert's carpet cleaning service. We moved from Pennsylvania and Robert went out of his way to clean our carpets before the movers arrived. He was always prompt about returning messages and is extremely professional. We will be having him return to clean our tile.

You need to hire this guy! He really cares about doing a good job. I have had the same carpet cleaner for years. He happened to be out of town so I hired Best Carpet Cleaning. It was the BEST thing I ever did.

I have hired Chris for carpet cleaning the last two times I was moving out of a rental home. Both times the carpets were left looking amazing! The first house was a one story, almost entirely carpet aside from the kitchen & the second house was the same - but two stories. Both houses had a few spots on the carpet that made me nervous about getting my deposits back... I tried cleaning them myself with a rental carpet cleaner but they didn't budge, however, Chris was able to get them out no problem. What a relief! For my cleaning recently, I had to reschedule very last minute due to a move out day change & Chris was so helpful & understanding of this. I am continously impressed with Chris' Quick Dry. I will continue to reach out to them anytime I am in need of a great, thorough carpet cleaning, it takes a lot of the move out stress away.

Just had carpets cleaned today so this ratting is based on initial impression and Chris. For the price I paid for Chris to come out and spruce up my 8 yr old carpets I'm pleased. I hope the carpets dry and stay looking as good as they do now.

The guy came an hour and a half late without any intimation. He walked all over our carpets in his street shoes, without even bothering to cover the soles, even after he had "cleaned" the carpets. And his machine deposited white fibres all over our dark carpets. When I asked him to clean it, he said just vacuum them. Well, what did I hire you for then?!! See the picture to see how he left our carpets. Abysmal!

I hired Chris Bowman to clean my carpets which hadn't been cleaned in quite awhile. He did an absolutely fabulous job. Chris was very personable and I feel that he went above and beyond to make sure my carpets came out beautiful and I was happy.

Chris cleaned our carpets during a move out. We had stains on the carpets and were sure that we were not going to get our deposit back. Chris did an amazing job and we got every penny of our deposit back, he worked with our crazy moving schedule. I hope to be able to use him again when we need the carpets cleaned in our new home.

JJ was quick to respond during appointment set up and prompt for the actual appointment. He cleaned and sealed the tile and cleaned carpets in our newly purchased home. The tile looked like new when he was finished and messes clean up well now. The carpet was low quality and well worn. JJ got it clean and looking as good as it can. No residual odors from his cleaning process. I would highly recommend JJ.

I called Chris to clean carpet. Chris was a nice man. However, the method of cleaning was antiquated. Actually he just ground the dirt into the carpet. No vacuum at all. I will have to have it redone with someone with a power cleaner. He left a mess...didn't clean up any mess he made. He used the hose and left it off. Although he was congenial and a nice man, I spent $55 that I will have to redo. Definitely would not rehire.
