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.

I needed a carpet cleaning prior to leaving our old apartment to move in to our new house. They were able to book me in a day prior. Did a great job with our carpet in our old apartment. Will definitely call them when we need service in our new home.

Ed did a great job following up as we had to reschedule our appointment. He let us know when he was coming, arrived on time and was very pleasant as was his assistant. Everything was done quickly and with a smile. It looks like the carpets got cleaned where there were some spots which is what triggered the call for help. However, the carpets were extremely wet at the end of the work. We used foot towels to go to bed last evening so our feet did not get the sheets wet. The carpets still have not dried out fully on Day 2 so we continue to go barefoot. Of course, we have not put the furniture back until things dry. The carpets are still too wet to vacuum to see what we have. Bottom line - the carpets look to be as clean as they have been after such a procedure but the dampness really takes the edge off a good job. Pricing was fair and in the range expected.

They are exactly as advertised. I was looking to clean one 8X10 carpet, in home. Everyone else had a $100 to $200 minimum; some wanted you to bring the carpet to them. Greenside offered a $47 flat fee, no hidden charges. They showed up on time and did a fine job, completing the task in less than 1/2 hour.I Highly recommend them.

They were fantastic from the get go. Better yet what a tremendous job on some very very dirty carpets (off white), 2 off white couches and 2 maroon loungers! At 61 i have experienced more than my fair share of carpet/furniture cleaning companies & they outshine them all!! Thanks Eddie & Chris! Will definitely be calling you again!

Rudy was very responsive to my inquiry and we booked an appointment right away. They called ahead and arrived on schedule. Rudy and his team were very professional, thorough and did a fantastic job cleaning our carpets and a few rugs. This was my first experience with the chem dry process and I was very pleased that my carpets were clean and dry within 2 to 3 hours! They also applied a scotch guard treatment to protect them longer. I will definitely be calling Rudy for my next job and I was very happy with their services. 😊

Really happy with the service. Booked it all through text and without ever having to speak to someone. Talk about convenience! The rep was nice, fast, and and explained the process at the beginning and at the end. I was quoted much more at other places but was really happy in the end with the result. My dog pooped on our carpet so it was a relief to have it cleaner than ever. Thank you!

They came right on time, and were very thorough, detailed and dedicated. Our carpet needed a lot of work considering we have a dog, and we saw a complete transformation once they finished. Now our apartment smells brand new and is so clean! Our closet smelled musky and now it smells fresh- better than when we first moved in. Will definitely be using their services again- I highly recommend!

INSANELY AMAZING. This is our second time we hired Greenside - 1st time to clean a 3 story condo with zero furniture and 2nd time to clean the same condo but with furniture AND dog piss. Each time they have been nothing but professional and punctual. I think it was Eddie who helped us both times and he’s the reason why I keep referring people to this company. The value is great too! 3 bedrooms and stairs will run around $150! AND THEY’RE FAST. Love them and would recommend. It’s been about 7 hours and my carpet is 90% dry. Thank you a million times.
