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.

I Needed my carpet clean, Chris Quick Dry, was very good all my stains removed and carpet cleaned very good. He did an excellent job and quoted me the price with no add ons. I will refer to my friends and post on our board.

My carpet is now cleaner than when I moved in. He did an excellent job, and very trustworthy. I had a lot of stains, all kinds, and now they are all gone. Other carpet cleaners wanted four times his cost, but I doubt they would have done better.

Showed up 3 hours late. Was her less than 30 minutes. Carpet looks exactly the same. Not cleaned. Inappropriate equipment.

Horrible, and would not recommend this ever. First off, these 5 star reviews are fake reviews. Second, the carpet is still dirty. The guy shows up and sprays a powder over the carpet, and then uses a floor buffer to scrub the carpet, and then he rakes the carpet. No dirt gets pulled up, the carpet gets damaged, and leaves behind white powder all over. Just a way for him to make quick and easy money. And the biggest thing...when paying with a credit card, he writes down your card information on a piece of paper instead of charging you right away. Talk about unprofessional. Stay away from this carpet cleaner.

This was a great experience with carpet cleaning. My carpets looked awesome and their responsiveness was amazing. They were timely and accountable. I would totally recommend them if you want to save money and have quality work. I got several quotes and these guys were by far the best.

Had an issue with rebooking, but that ended up working out in the end. Carpets very clean afterward despite years of pet build-up and heavy stains.

Great work and value. I've had carpets cleaned before and the upsell is uncomfortable. Chris was true to what he communicates. No upselling. What he said he would complete and how much he would charge, are what happened.

Sorry, I won't use Chris again. His equipment is inferior to more powerful truck-mounted equipment, which is what the company that I normally use has. I thought I'd try another company because my old one is hard to book with, but they do a great job with the carpets so I'll go back to them. When Chris was done with our carpets, they looked like mud and smelled faintly of wet dog (we have two large dogs, but the carpet never smelled like that after a cleaning!). Was a waste of $100, but my fault for not doing better research on the equipment. Probably fine for someone who doesn't have the traffic and dogs that I do.

Chris arrived on time, checked out the job, brought his equipment in and quietly got to work. It was a small job and he finished in 45 minutes. There were some major stains in the living room area and they were all removed and the carpet looked fresh and clean. It was dry by the time my daughter and family returned home after work. Chris gave us the senior's discount. We were very pleased with the Thumbtack experience.

Called him in to repair a patch in our door way that our cat had torn up. We didn't have any extra carpet and were okay with him taking a piece from the closet and just patching the closet up with a close enough match. While the actual patch is not terrible (there are still frays coming out and our baseboards caught some damage), the closet match is.. less than expected. We have cream colored carpet and the patch is brown. Typically when someone says they'll take a patch from the closet they also insure it will be from an inconspicuous part of the closet, the patch they look is in a spot where your eyes naturally go to look first. Now we need to get someone else in to fix the closet patch and possibly clean up the original patch we had a problem with. I would like to add that this guy is very nice and communicative, he was very easy to schedule and talk with, and he arrived right on time. The work just wasn't what we expected.

Chris works miracles. Our apartment's carpet... I sincerely thought it was a dingy grey but then he cleaned it and it turned out to be this pretty silvery taupe color. He got out pet stains that I thought would never come out! Some spots were too stained, former room mates had a cat, but he got nearly everything and explained why those few stains wouldn't come out. He also got rid of the musty smell of the apartment, I actually feel like staying home is an option now. Another thing we appreciated is that he didn't try to upsell, he kept to his quote and was really nice and personable. He was super understanding that we were a bit late and kept him waiting. We are definitely keeping his business card, we want him to come back for our New Year's cleaning!
