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.

They did an excellent job and got stubborn stains and a gross smell out of our carpet and carpeted stairs. The process was very quick and they took special care to not damage the surrounding areas. Will definitely have them back for the next thing that needs cleaning

Rug Cleaners: The Extractors HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If you are looking to have your carpets cleaned, please call Charlie at 323.240.1137. The other day I used Thumbtack to get estimates for my 300 sq ft room. You fill out your requirements and automatically I got 2 estimates for $150! When I spoke with one of the rug cleaner company recommended on Nextdoor, I asked why so much? I mentioned that if it would take more than 45 minutes to clean the rug, I would be surprised. I expressed my dismay. Because typically, I do the rug myself. So, when I got the $150 estimate, I was ready to do it again… myself. However, I was not sure if I could get the machine in my Honda. I called and went to Home Depot Rental Department to see if I could lift and get the machine in my car. A big shout out to Tony and his Home Depot crew who were so kind and helpful. And, it looked like I would be able to do it again myself. When I came home, I found another written pre-estimate in my email for $55!!!! It appears that was an automatic response, so when THE EXTRACTORS confirmed my request for an estimate, he responded with $60. WOW! When I called and spoke with him at length, I was impressed at how efficient and professional Charlie was. I asked him if he would be willing to throw in my bedroom for $60. YES! NOT A PROBLEM. Charlie showed up on time, explained the process, and worked hard and efficiently. The rugs look brand new! In addition to rug cleaning, here are the other Cleaning Services he offers: Deep Cleaning Commercial Cleaning Fog Cleaning…ask to see his video. Exterior Power Washing Upholstery Cleaning Interior Car Detailing Ask to see his pictures and videos. THANK YOU, CHARLIE! P.S. Charlie also serves as a reservist in the US Army.
