Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

They were prompt, professional, and my carpets came out as clean as I hoped.

Extremely detailed and process orientated. One of the few carpet professionals that follows the book for carpet cleaning and care. No corners cut. You get what you pay for with this company and it is worth the premium price.

Five Star Clean was amazing! They were able to remove stains that I thought for sure were permanent. Thanks to Five Star's quick, reliable and friendly service my carpet never looked better and I was able to put my house on the market without having to replace the carpet. The service was so excellent that I will be using Five Star for the carpet at my new house.

Hector was fantastic. He arrived on time and was very friendly. After a quick walk through, he got right to work. His prices can't be beat. Full disclosure, we did have spots that had been in the carpet for quite some time and did not come out(they may require a more concentrated spot-clean effort) and it also takes a bit longer to dry then he told us. That being said, I highly recommend. The carpets, rug and sofa look great.

If I could leave a -1000 I would. First off your cleaner Andy was late. Appt was set for 5-7 and he showed up around 7:15. Quote was for one rug with a heavy couch, tv stand and ottoman that weren't going to be moved. Cleaning was for walk areas only. $41. Andy tried to upsell me for over an hour. Quote went from $41 to $120. Kept saying "large area rug". Then I said, let's move the furniture and then it will be a large area rug. He had me call two women, neither one answered. Then I'm getting more "education" on carpets and carpet cleaning. Then Andy said, after him being here and wasting 3.5 hours of my time that he wasn't going to clean the rug and walked out. I couldn't have thrown him out any faster.

I gave three stars because he is an incredibly nice person and I do think he wanted to do a great job but sadly for me it hasn’t turned out to be a good decision to hire this company. I just purchased several extremely expensive area rugs and also just adopted a rescue pup and those two don’t go together. I hastily hired someone that was immediately available without reading through the reviews. He has tons of good reviews but the less than favorable ones have to do with carpet cleaning. Specifically leaving wet rugs on wood floors after cleaning. He told me it would take 24 hours for my one older rug that I had cleaned to dry. However, after 36+ hours the carpet was still sopping wet. He did come out and take the rug outside and it took it two more days to dry. It does not smell good unfortunately. But what is the most disappointing is the job that was done scotch guarding the brand new area rugs. It was inevitable to have some cat (hairball) and pup accidents and I wanted to beat them to the punch. Unfortunately the few accidents we’ve had, it’s like the carpet wasn’t scotch guarded at all. I know he did it but it must have been a less than great product or it was the application. I’m not sure but it was an expensive attempt to protect my new rugs I have to find someone else and pay again to try to rectify. Again, he is a really nice person and I think is great at many other things. Perhaps just carpet care is not at the top of the list. I wish him the best though!
