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.

I have been using Thumbtack for my carpet cleaning services since a well known company ruined a strip of flooring in my house as well as never getting my carpets perfectly cleaned. If you want "all" the stains removed, contact Jeff at Certified Carpet Cleaning. He cared for my 28 year+ carpeting like it was brand new. He explained to me the entire process and gave me suggestions. He called 30 minutes before my job to tell me he was coming and he was on time. If you want your carpets cleaned correctly, use this company. I know I will continue to do so. He also told me his company does pressure cleaning. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.

Arrived exactly as scheduled; was upfront about a few of the stains and the possibility that they may not be able to clean completely; however, cleaning was successful with all stains being removed from Berber carpeting. Recommend with no hesitation at all.

Simply put, Jeff was amazing. My carpets (yucky builder grade) turned out really nice. Jeff was on-time, very personable and extremely knowledgeable about carpet cleaning and care. He did an very thorough job, going above and beyond and even removing little paint drops from the carpet that were there prior to me purchasing the house. I will definitely hire Jeff again and would/will recommend him to anyone that needs his services. It was nice meeting you Jeff and I greatly appreciate you providing a top notch service.

Carpet cleaning in a high traffic area. Precise services answered my request for service with email right away, we got on the schedule quickly and they arrived at our home on time!! We offered Precise services a challenge right away by telling them we had been told to use only a dry cleaning method. The technician listened carefully and then respectfully explained why we needed the deeper cleaning extraction method on the toughest area, then did as we asked on the other areas. The work was quick and professional and looked great! They even offered to come back in a week and redo the dry parts if we weren't happy, at a very reduced rate. We didn't have to do that, they were just fine! We will definitely call Precise Services when we need our carpets cleaned again!! Thank you Precise Services😃😃

Absolutely terrific!! Quick response time, very thorough, prompt start time - simply the best and we will decimate let use again!! Already scheduled appointment for tile/grout cleaning! Beware of others Just because of Low pricing - they use "bait and switch" tactics, end up paying high fees and getting not quality work! Call Jeff at certified carpet cleaning - he's the best!

Precise Services just cleaned the carpets in my entire house. They cleaned 4 rooms and a hallway for $120. I am very pleased with the value of the service. Byron was both very professional, polite, and did a thorough job. He even got out some very stubborn stains. Possibly, the best part is he gave me a specific time of arrival and was very punctual! Up until the day before I just knew they were going to be here sometime after 5pm, but today he contacted me around noon and said they would be here around 4pm and he was! The whole process took only an hour and he returned my dead carpet to its natural condition. I especially like that they are a local Florida company. I would recommend this company without reservation.

Jeff is the BEST! It was my first time hiring someone off Thumbtack, he had given me the lowest rate of everyone, but I also wanted quality work so after speaking to him on the phone I felt comfortable hiring him. We needed a deep carpet cleaning when we moved out of our rental home, and he did AWESOME! First class service, he has all the professional equipment...we had some things around the house we were trying to fix ourselves (a closet, paint on the tile) and from his heart he wanted to help us! We will definitely be hiring him again!
