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.

Commercial building carpet cleaning--hallways, offices and work areas. Scott and team were very professional, polite and thorough. I would highly recommend Easy Clean Carpet Care for home or business carpet cleaning.

Steven was absolutely phenomenal!! He wasn't in a rush just to get to the next assignment. He truly new what the heck he was doing. My carpet had been basically "dusted over" by let's say a guy named...."Stan" the last 3 times & each time it was a rush job..... NOT WITH EASY CLEAN! Steven with Easy Clean will be the only person we're calling going forward from now on to come clean our carpets. I wish I had before & after pics to put on display.

Terrible service!! Horrible experience!! Very unprofessional Jeff did not explain his work/procedures, he was very defensive and argumentative when I asked if he's vacuuming before cleaning the carpet. Jeff entered rooms in my home where the door's were closed which was unusual to me; however, if he'd explained/ asked, let me know why he was entering it would not have been a problem. Jeff quit the job in the middle of cleaning the bedroom carpet. Jeff suggested I clean my own carpet since I knew so much about carpet. He continued to argue while gathering his supplies (I've never been disrespected in my own home) I asked why is he still arguing his response "because I'm right ". Jeff isn't worried about this negative review because he has "several good reviews" THINK TWICE before HIRING THIS GUY.

He did a great job, and was very open to communication, easy to work with, and understanding that we are not carpet cleaners, so we described the job as a lil smaller than it was, he was fair in the adjustment. We thank you.

Scott and Vinnie were extremely responsive to my concerns. They were professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about treating and caring for carpets. They cleaned my whole 2 story 1900 sq.ft. home including the stairs, and treated one room with deep staining, all for under $300. They do great work, and I will definitely be using them again!
