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. 

Reviews for Fort Lauderdale carpet cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
Smart Carpet were very professional. They arrived on time to meet my schedule. The technician was very pleasant and did an excellent job with the stairs and getting under and around furniture to leave a uniformly clean carpet. My house looked and smelt very clean when he left. The price was great too. I would gladly recommend Smart Carpet for any carpet cleaning job.

Showed up on time, pretreated the carpet with two different chemicals. My carpet in certain areas where black from my sons stains and old residue left underneath the carpet. A light tan in color carpet became clean as much as it could for the age of the carpet. I would recommend

I would recommend Keagan and Enriched carpet to anyone looking to have a professional job well done. I recently purchased a new apartment and went shopping immediately for a new carpet ( $800) for the master bedroom. The old (off) white carpet was very stained especially around the doorway. I later thought it worth a try to have the have the carpet cleaned as the potential saving was over 90%. Keagen arrived the next day on time at 3pm and cleaned the carpet. I was very satisfied with the result and now I have a clean carpet and big saving in my pocket. Thanks. Robert Mc

We hired Moshe to clean our carpets and tiles in a 52 unit - 3 floor condominium block. Moshe and his assistant worked right through to 7 PM with hardly any breaks to finish the job in one day. The tiles were fantastic and the carpet was in a much better state as a result of the hard work. Moshe actually threw in additional cleaning of our exterior tiles at no additional cost. I would recommend Smart Carpet and Tile and this dry cleaning approach for buildings who have commercial carpets on cement surfaces.

I needed someone to clean the carpet at one of our rental units after the tenants moved out. Levoughn responded to my ad on Thumbtack and was at the property the very next day. Rather than just cleaning the carpet, and getting paid, he took the time to explain how the padding underneath the carpet was ruined and that even if he cleaned the carpet, the strong odor would still be present because it's coming from the padding. He suggested that I have the padding replaced and then once that was taken care of, he would come back out and clean it. It's beyond rare to meet someone in business who is honest, and the amount of respect that I have for Levoughn just from that experience, is through the roof. I HIGHLY recommend him, and look forward to working with him in the future.
