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.

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. 

Reviews for Elk Grove carpet cleaners

We needed our carpets cleaned in our new house before we moved our furniture in. The goal of the carpet cleaning was to remove the previous owners pet odor, but the carpets look like a night and day difference. White carpets are tough, and I never expected them to get as bright as they did. I purchased one of those off the shelf carpet cleaners but nothing beats steam cleaning. While its too early to tell if the deodorizers were successful in eradicating the pet odor, I can most definitely say the carpets look amazing and I am thrilled to be moving into our new house with a clean slate. I plan to call Doug back for some window cleanings in the future.

Doug cleaned the carpet and the windows in my house. He did a fantastic job. He is a hard worker, friendly, and I will be contacting him the next time I need carpets or windows cleaned again.

Colby Rodriguez cleaned the carpet in my home so well that we were very impressed. We had hired other carpet cleaning companies and they never got it that clean and the cost would doubled when they finished. I would highly recommend Rodriguez Cleaning Solution and will hire him again.

I had an excellent experience with Easy Clean Carpet Care. My technician was Scott. They were able to accommodate my last minute request and the carpets looked brand new when Scott was finished. 2400 sq ft home and very reasonable rates. I would highly recommend Scott and Easy Clean Carpet Care

I talked to the owner and explained I had a small rental house with only 4 rooms that needed carpet cleaning. The house did not have any furniture and was single-story. Mike led me to believe they would send a technician to the house to actually do the carpet cleaning on Saturday. He states the base price was $139. On Saturday, and man showed up without any carpet-cleaning equipment and proceeded to state that the actual cost would be $275 because the carpet was very dirty and wanted at least half of the money up-front. This was very sketchy and disappointing. Not only was the price nearly doubled, but I have no idea when they were actually going to do the work. This does not appear to be a professional carpet-cleaning company.

Bobby did an amazing job and the carpets look wonderful. Bobby was very thorough and provided helpful recommendations. He also assisted me in taking pictures of the carpet so I could send to the landlord for reimbursement. They were able to accommodate my schedule with no questions or complaints. I would highly recommend BOBBY and Easy Clean Carpet Care to everyone. I wish I could give them more stars.

Marcus did a great job... he gets a 5-star! Thank you... my 1st experience w/ a professional carpet cleaner. 😃👍🏼 Just wished it didn't end up costing almost double what i thought it would cost me... I guess that's why I end up doing it myself and using my dad's carpet cleaner. Thank you anyway.

Cody was great, Very courteous and thorough. He even called to my attention that we had a little bit of water damage in one of the corners of our rooms, really appreciated that. Carpet looked perfect. Scotchgard and I even get him to clean my linoleum in the kitchen for a good price. I will definitely ask for Cody to do my carpets next year. Thanks

From the beginning, Scott was very communicative. Then, our technician was great about explaining the whole process when he got to the house, being very clear about any extra charges for pet stains, etc., if I chose to include those. He made sure the stains in the carpet were really worked on and I now have beautiful carpets again. Thank you, Easy Clean!

I called Colby Rodriguez after finding him on Thumbtack. He absolutely is a number one pro in my book. I actually thought my carpet may have been ruined beyond help when Colby came to the rescue and the carpet again now looks like new! I appreciate and am very grateful to have found Rodriguez Cleaning Solution. I would highly reccomend him!

Rockstar Carpet Cleaning was prompt to respond, easy to schedule an appointment, pricing was reasonable, young man was respectful and seemed to do an effeciant job. Once the carpet dried, I saw the same stains coming back through. Good job in the bedroom and walk in closet but not so great job in the office carpet and living room rug. Once he was made aware that the stains came up after drying, he returned and made sure it was to my satisfaction and clean. On his return, I found out that my refrigerater had been leaking water into the office, creating mildew under the foot of a chair. This altered me to get that repaired immediately. Dominic deserves 5 stars for his attitude, work ethic, and responsiveness. Thank you Dominic.

Doug Bracy was very professional. He communicated the whole process of carpet cleaning to me. He loves and enjoys what he does. I also found out that he’s a jack of all trades. He cleans grout and hard water from shower doors. Would definitely recommend Doug Brady’s services!

Doug Bracy Carpet & Tile Cleaning was awesome! I had needed extensive cleaning for a large home that was in desperate need of some cleaning and Doug finished it all efficiently and, most importantly, quite spotlessly. I really appreciate Doug's knowledge and effective cleaning supply/equipment, but most of all, Doug was very compassionate and professional in helping. I highly recommend Doug and would totally use his service again. You can't go wrong with him.
