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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for professional carpet cleaning?

It’s common for professional carpet cleaners to accept digital payments such as Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay, Zelle, PayPal and others. The current COVID-19 pandemic is quickly encouraging other companies to digitally transform as well. Make sure the carpet cleaner you hire will accept a digital payment instead of cash or check, and come up with a strategy for complying with social distancing regulations.

Added sofa and area rug cleaning as well as carpets. All turned out very clean. Deodorizer is nice too.

Very professional. Returned my phone call promptly and were able to come clean the pet stains in my carpet the next day. The carpets were fresh smelling and all the stains were removed after the cleaning. Would recommend them!

I had my carpet cleaned in my small apartment. They showed up in time and were very nice. The cleaning took no more than an hour and I was a bit disappointed as I expected to have better results. My carpet is very old and worn so its understandable that it wouldn't be an amazing difference, but I felt as if it could look better. I ended up renting a Rug Doctor machine from Walmart and going over some spots myself. I actually was able to make the carpet look a bit better myself by using that. After reading the good reviews about Eco-Earth, I was not very impressed with their methods and with the outcome of the cleaning. I do take in account the age of my carpet though so its understandable, i was just hoping for better results.

Very friendly and more of a perfectionist . They did a wonderful job cleaning my carpet and still wondering if I was satisfied. There was also a follow up call from them with the offer to come back if there is any part they missed out. Thanks again

My carpets were not clean and the odor still remains. They didn't get in the corners of the tile floor or around the toilets. Plus, I found their price extremely high for the results I received. I will not reccommend Steamboat to anyone. I am very disappointed.

Samuel was quick to respond to my request for a price quote and more information. He was able to come within 24 hours and arrived on time. He worked efficiently and professionally. Our carpets looked and smelled wonderfully when he was done. We had him come out to clean 2 bedrooms with a pet enzyme treatment to eliminate the odors caused from dog pee. I would definitely recommend his services and I plan to use him again.

James was on time, very professional, and did a great job on our carpet. We are in a five story professional office building and that didn't matter. He honored his quote and finished under the amount of time that he estimated without ever seeing the job. I recommended him to our building management to service the entire building. It's been 1 week since he cleaned it and no stains have returned! And it still smells fresh. Thank you James, use me as a reference anytime! Kaleina

Eco-Earth is THE BEST!! James was prompt, courteous, and very educated in regards to his business. He readily shared his education, providing me with new insight and great tips on maintaining my carpet. I had another company out about 5 months ago and they were unable to do much with the stains and nothing with the odors I had from a puppy training problem. However, Eco-Earth has done what others could not! I will definitely hire him and his company again for ALL of my home cleaning services!! Thank you for making my house livable again!!

Corey Seems like a very nice Person. I had my Carpets cleaned however I had a red stain in my masters when he was done it was said that he has taking care of it. Since I was not able to go upstairs I waited till a day later, when me and my husband went upstairs I noticed the stain was still there not just that but also there was a brown stain that was not there before. I spoke to Corey and was told he would come by the next day to take of it however no show and nothing. Than we left messages no responses, this is not ok I paid and received what ????

Well, Tony showed up on time. However, Tony (who said he will be the new owner in May) walked around, and told me all the reasons why Ron (current owner) should have never quoted $200 for this job without looking at it first. It’s on the 2nd floor, liability of the hoses running from water source into the 2nd floor, it’s a 2-man job and he’s the only one here, etc. Tony said the job would be $300 (not the $200 quoted)and he would have to come back another time with a 2nd guy. Any details Ron wanted to know for providing a quote were given in our communications prior to the quote and prior to making the appointment. All items were removed from the floor, and well prepared for the carpet cleaning. All employees were asked to leave one hour early for the cleaning (one hour less of production and one hour less pay to those employees). Tony was a bit obnoxious, arrogant, and unprofessional.
