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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Fort Myers carpet cleaners
Connie K.
We hired G Cleaning to clean the carpeted traffic areas in 3 rooms, plus a hall runner. The carpet in the bedrooms was only lightly soiled, and it came out okay. However, the carpet in the office that was very soiled in front of our 2 desks doesn't look much better than before it was cleaned. Very disappointed.

This company was great. They responded immediately upon my request for a carpet cleaner. They came the very next day and were able to remove spots in our carpet that we have had several other companies try and remove. This was our last hope before having to replace the carpeting. These guys did amazing and are more than deserving of a five star review. Thank you.

I hired Floor Medic to clean my sons carpet and couches. They were very accommodating with scheduling when I could be in town and be there while my son was in classes. They were very courteous and everything looks great. Will definitely hire again and I would highly recommend them if anyone is looking for the same.

I had a most pleasant experience with this company. They were prompt and very knowledgeable and professional. I had two bedroom carpets badly smelling of cat urine. They were able to take care of the problem 100% to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend this company. I know I will use them in the future for all my cleaning needs.

We contacted Isiah, the owner, on a Saturday while we were waiting to have dinner. We needed to have the carpets cleaned in our three bedrooms. We were a little surprised when he said he could schedule us the next morning at 9:00 am and a little uncertain when he sent us his estimate, numbered 0004, for what seemed like a very low amount. I suspected the company hadn’t been around very long, but we decided to take a chance. I have to say we are so glad we did. Isiah arrived the next morning right on time. I showed him what needed to be done and he went right to work, briefly stopping from time to time to explain the process. Two hours later, the carpets were cleaned, the spots were removed and the scotch guarding was reapplied. The cost of the scotch guard protectant was an additional charge, but the final cost for everything was just slightly more than what the other companies I contacted wanted just to show up. All in all, this was a very pleasant experience and I would not hesitate at all to recommend this company or to use them again.
