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.

Ray -helped our residential cleaning company with a restoration cleaning- he was able to clean the carpets in a really damaged unit- and the carpets were so clean -he matched the carpet back to the original color that we found under the room area rugs once we removed them. Remarkable. His prices were fabulous as well as his professionalism. We are proud to say he complimented our high standard maintained in Tampa.....we trust him with our reputation- and that alone speaks volumes Busy Bee Cleaning Specialists -sheila - owner .

Rugrats cleaned all the carpets in our home at a very reasonable rate. They were very professional and our carpets look bright and brand new again after the cleaning. They were very prompt and got to work quickly but did not rush through the job. We were very satisfied and would use them again!

I would recommend RugRats Carpet Cleaning to my friends and family. While our carpets had not been cleaned in a few years they did a great job in renewing there look. The only thing that did not happen was I didn't get the new customer discount, which was not mentioned by the serviceman. In spite of that, I was pleased with the service!

Scott was excellent....he was on time and ready to work. It's our daughter's first home and he was so informative about her tile condition and her carpet wear. He explained everything to the "T"!! Great personality and offered warranty on their work. The tile and carpet definitely changed color (for the better and because it was cleaned)....Will definitely recommend them for Carpet/tile cleaning. Awesome, awesome work and the price was amazing!! Thank you Scott, thank you RugRats.!!!!

We learned of Dmytriy thru the Thumbtack site. Dmytriy, who has a pleasant demeanor and personality, arrived on time. He did an outstanding job removing a very large and bad stain caused by water seeping into the carpet as a result of a heavy rain fall. The carpet, in spite of being 15 years old, looks rather new again. He also patiently explained how the machined cleaned the carpet which was interesting. We certainly will have him periodically clean our carpets and are thoroughly pleased with the quality of his work. And without hesitation, we highly recommend him since we are confident he does excellent work.
