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 was very pleased with the job done by smart carpet and tile. I recently had to housebreak a puppy and was afraid that the damage was permanent on my carpet. They just left in the carpet looks like new. He also cleaned the seats my car and they came out great as well. I will definitely use them again.

I have given this company all five stars - they seem to disappear as I go on however. I am exremely pleased with the job done on our carpet. Moshe was very honest about what could and could not be achieved but the result is a very clean revitalized living room carpet. I will call him again for any tile cleaning I may decide to do and I will recommend him to my family and friends. It was a pleasure doing business with Moshe and his company.

I got both carpeting and upholstery cleaned by The Lion and was very happy with the work! They responded quickly, arrived on time, were very professional, and got both my sectional and an area rug clean - both are pet odor and dog hair free! I will definitely be using them again in the future!

What a pleasant surprise. We keep having this old wall to wall carpeting cleaned until we put in ceramic tiles, this is by far the best job ever done. Previous to EMO, we hired well-known companies and our carpeting never looked this good. Michael was both professional, and meticulous. I would hire him again for sure and will highly recommend him to friends and neighbors. Thank you, Michael, we are pleased. Bob and Louise Allaire

I made arrangements with Moshe Shahar to have the carpets cleaned in my parents' condo in Delray Beach. I've never made arrangements with a contractor long distance before (I live in MA) and admit I was somewhat leery about it. But it was a positive experience from beginning to end. He was VERY responsive, kind, polite and professional. He came on time and called me after he had assessed the condition of the carpet. He said it needed a more thorough cleaning which would involve a higher cost and he wanted to make sure he had my permission before proceeding with the job. Having just been to Florida within the last few weeks to visit and having seen the carpet myself, I know he was being sincere. I had even warned him ahead of time that the carpets were badly soiled. He completed the job and then called me when he was done to let me know he was unable to remove two bad cranberry juice stains but the rest of the carpet came out great. I really appreciated his taking the time to make a follow-up call as well as his honesty. Then I called my parents' caretaker to ask her opinion and she said "He did a beautiful job!" I would not hesitate to call him again if I found myself in need of his services. :)

William was incredibly professional - he showed up on time, did a great job cleaning our carpets. He was also very very quick - he did 2 rooms, a hallway, and a stairwell in less than two hours by himself. I would definitely recommend this company!
