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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Fairburn carpet cleaners

Moses gave us an absolutely awesome experience!!!! We bought a foreclosed home that had absolutely horrendous carpet. After bringing in a carpet service that did absolutely nothing to get the multiple stains out, Moses was our last chance before we would have to just replace the carpet all together. Moses came early and thoroughly cleaned every stain in our carpet. He left our carpet that was once looking like an embarrassment brand new and clean. He exceeded our expectations in every way and he will forever be our "carpet cleaning man".

Came in and cleaned the carpet in 3 bedrooms, a closet, and a small strip of carpet between the living room and kitchen. Prices are affordable and Gentleman was on time and quick. The carpets looked amazing once he was done.

Cleaner clean was VERY professional. They cleaned two rooms and some furniture. The price was reasonable and being that this was last minute I really appreciate them taking time out there day to accommodate me. My carpet downstairs has the most foot traffic, they did a great job on the floors. Also I like the fact that before they move to the next room they ask you to come take a look at the work they finished in that particular room. You now will be my new carpet cleaners!!!!!

Peach Home Service did a great job on our carpets! They were able to clean up multiple stains that I thought would leave permanent damage and now our carpets look as close to new as they have in years! They were very responsive which worked perfect for our timeline and they were very professional and punctual!

Scott was prompt and courteous in responding to my quote request. He communicated in advance of the scheduled appointment. He arrived on time and did an outstanding job. He is thorough and detail-oriented. He cleaned my carpet as if it was his own. I will recommend him to everyone I know. And I will certainly be a repeat customer. He didn't try that adding an extra amount to the bill that other carpet cleaners did in the past. And there's no funky chemical smell. Thanks for making a humdrum task easy, Scott!!!

These guys did a great job. Arrived on time (actually a few minutes early) and jumped right on the job. The job was for 6 rooms and my staircase. They did a great quality job fast, and at what I considered to be a very fair price. No hassle, no upcharge!! I'm putting them in my phone for all my future carpet cleaning services.

I ended finding this pro for my parents house and they loved him. He really pays attention to detail and makes sure you are satisfied with the work done before leaving. Compared to our previous carpet cleanings we say he blows everyone out of the water. Our old guy use to come and get out in like 30 minutes but Steven takes his time and you can tell.
