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 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.

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.

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.

Compare carpet cleaners near you to see which types of payments they accept.

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. 

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.

ABS Carpet Cleaning was excellent from start to finish. Brad responded to my email inquiry right away. I inquired on Friday, 9/6/19 and much to my delight, he could clean my carpet the very next day. Since he was delayed for our 9:30 a.m. appointment, he politely called to inform me of such and came shortly thereafter. My carpet really needed cleaning since I just removed a very large sofa that had prevented me from cleaning the room for a very long time. With the sofa removed, I could see that the carpet really needed to be spruced up; cleaned and sanitized. Well, Brad, with his equipment and know how rejuvenated my worn down carpeting. He diligently shampooed and steam cleaned the carpet in my living room and stairs. Where there were stubborn stains in a number of areas, he made it a point to work on those sections several times. All his hard work paid off for he weaved his "magic" and the appearance of my carpet improved 100%. His fair pricing and quality work has given me a lot of satisfaction knowing that my carpet not only looks so much better, but also makes for a healthier environment. Thank you Brad for your professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you.

He was very nice, used an odor eating formula. We are moved big into a town house that has a strong dog smell and I hired this company to clean the carpets to get rid of the smell. I will give the carpets a few more days, and I may have to call him back if the dog smell is still here.

Needed a carpet cleaning for my move-out. Friendly service, good price, quality work, very personable. I tend to do things almost last minute, so I was glad they were able to come out within a day or two. If I weren’t moving off the island, I could see myself sticking with them for any time I needed carpet cleaning done. Felt like a family business you could become friends with. Definitely recommend!

Michael was unreal. Very committed to his work and professional. You could easily tell that he took great pride in what he did. He did the little extra's that stand out (such as "raking" the carpet so that no footsteps are even visible, and so it dries more easily). He was also reliable, personable and accommodating, too. I would recommend Michael and Absolute Steam Clean to anyone without any hesitation.

Trey and his team were punctual and gave me a call ahead of time to let me know they were on their way. They were very kind and helpful and took their time to ensure the job was done well. They were very respectful and considerate of my dog as well as all my personal belongings. Very very happy with the job they did! Would absolutely recommend them to any one who needs carpet cleaning!

Excellent job from those two young guys from ABS Carpet/Floor Cleaning service!! (Aloha Bubbles Services). First, their price is very reasonable to compare to others on Thumbtack and online!. Second, they are very conscientious about their work. They took the time to do it right. Third, they were flexible about the day and time, (I had to cancel on them the first time and they were very good about rescheduling). Couldn't say enough about them. I will use them again in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone as well. Thanks, guys and best of luck!
