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.

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. 

Does a professional carpet cleaner or steam cleaner need to enter my home?

Because the majority of carpet cleaning and steam cleaning jobs take place in someone’s home, it’s likely that a professional carpet cleaner would need to enter your home.

When you contact carpet cleaners near you, ask if they will do a video call in place of a standard consultation. Send photos and other materials digitally. Practice safe social distancing at all times, and follow both local and CDC guidelines.

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.

Arturo and Jason arrived on time and did a great job cleaning our carpet. It had been too long between cleanings and I was worried the carpet was too stained and damaged, but it looks beautiful. The team was very professional and I will hire them again.

This was the best carpet cleaning service that I’ve ever used. They were punctual, professional, quick, and the work exceeded my expectations. I had both my carpet and upholstery cleaned. When they were done, it was as if I had a new carpet and new furniture. There were no additional charges when the job was complete. I was actually on a budget and Ed worked within my budget. I will only use Kingdom Cleaning Service moving forward. Thank you Ed!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND. My carpet was wet for over 48 hours. There was a terrible smell from the padding underneath being wet for so long. I had to get another company to come in an salvage the carpet bringing my carpet cleaning to a carpet reinstall and double the cost. I am very disappointed to hear he used a portable machine that is a older model. It barely cleaned the carpet and it definitely did not extract the moisture. I am not happy. When I asked for Lewis to return and fix the damage he kept saying he would come a week later. This is very concerning because I was telling him the damage my carpet was already going through and he insisted he guarantees his work but gives me options that would leave my entire apartment submerged in a wet carpet odor for over week. -Salome C.

Kevin was a pleasure to work with. He was on time, courteous, and knew his craft. He looked at the areas that I wanted cleaned, and provided the price, as the areas were larger than what I originally was looking to get cleaned. He completed the cleaning in a timely manner. The carpets came out cleaner than the last time I had them cleaned by another company. Don't let the other guys fool you...Kevin has the most up to date equipment and processes to get the job done correctly. When it's time for the carpets to get cleaned again, I'm definitely going to contact Kevin. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Eddie did a great job on the carpet getting out stains other companies couldn't. There were a couple of small areas along the baseboards that could have been cleaned better.

Let me start by saying that we could not be more happy with the job they did on our carpets. We live in a small apartment with two cats, where the carpets are very old. The heavy traffic areas can get pretty bad and we were concerned that this carpet was beyond help. We were amazed at the difference after the cleaning. These guys are professional, quick, and incredible at what they do. I would recommend them in a heart beat and already have to my neighbor. I will defiantly use them again.

I had hired Greenside in March to come the following Friday. I wound up being very sick and had to cancel. They were very professional on the phone and helped me make a new date at the end of April. Well, our landlord is replacing all of the carpet so their services weren't needed, but again - professional. I will say if I need to have my carpets cleaned, I will go with them.

Hector is the best! Very friendly and professional, punctual, adjusted to some changes in my schedule, and did it all with a smile and great attitude. And of course the carpet was nice and clean. I'll be calling Hector again in the future, and recommending others to call him as well!

Refused to give me a quote over the phone. Came and quoted me 900 for a 900sqft space. They wanted 450 to clean my three seat couch. Managed to get them down to 600 total. They promised the pet smell would be gone. The pet smell is not gone. The carpets look clean and they got stains out. But not worth the price at all.

Kevin did a great job. The carpet was very dirty due to moving in to the apartment. I believe the movers left a lot of greasy dirty tracks and Kevin worked his magic and it was once again clean. The soiled areas were gone and everyone was happy. Thank you Kevin and keep up the good work.

Angel and his partner did a fantastic job. The arrived promptly and completed the job in an hour. Now our sofa and area rug looking like new. We have two cats with a white rug, so needless to say, the job was necessary. Looking forward to booking with Eco-Dry yearly to keep out couch and carpet looking new and clean.

Alec was fantastic! He was on time, professional, friendly, and efficient. He worked very hard to accommodate the fact that my condo was on the third floor and that the closet parking spot was about 100 feet away from the balcony. Total cleaning time including prep was about 2 hours. Alec charged very little for the amount of work done and I would gladly have paid more, especially since he had to drive wayyy out of his usual service area! I recently had my condo renovated and Alec was able to remove all of the stains left from my contractor and previous tenant. My carpet looks like new and the best part is that he doesn't use harmful chemicals! I'm so happy with 8 Services and will definitely be using them again!!
