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.

Eddie was very professional, courteous and did a really good job removing the carpet stains from years of my nephews spills. I would absolutely recommend Greenside Carpet for your cleaning needs. Quoted price was exact and no added fees!

Moving out, at the end of the month, I have a final walk through inspection with my landlord. I needed to have my carpet and flooring sparkle clean.

Scott and his sons did an okay job. His sons were not attention to detail on our sectional couch and did not get all stains out. The carpet cleaning was average. I would prefer a steam clean next time.

They were on time, friendly, polite, quick, and professional. They took my five bedroom home that was FILLED with carpet stains and completely made it look brand new. And then even after they offered to help me move some items from my house into my car! They went above and beyond my expectations and I recommend them based on customer service, and the quality of their actual cleaning service. My old carpets look brand new. 10/10!

I hired All About Cleaning to clean our carpets after moving out of a rental home. The first thing that impressed me was the price. VERY reasonable. He was also flexible when we needed to reschedule the cleaning. His employee showed up on time and was friendly. They didn't even charge extra for deodorizing our "pet" room. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

Scott and his team did a wonderful job cleaning the carpets in our new home. He worked with us on our 'timing hiccups' of closing escrow and us needing to get the floors cleaned before moving furniture in. Patriot Floor Care was very easy to work with and you can tell they take pride in their work. We are VERY satisfied customers.

Very honest and trustworthy. Made it very easy to have done. He came into my home without us being around, cleaned our carpets, did a top notch job and left recommendations for other work to be done to our tile, that shows attention to detail and looking at the whole picture, not just what he was hired to do. I appreciate that type of business man. Good job chris!
