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.

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.

Clean Systems is the best carpet cleaning company I have found. I moved into a rental where carpets were not cleaned before I moved in. There was ink stains in one room. Old food stains in living room and hallways were filthy. I adopted a little dog from shelter who added stains to the carpets. Ray and his wife were able to remove all the stains and carpets were totally clean and nice orange scent after they were finished cleaning. I would highly recommend Clean Systems to clean your carpets. Also very reasonably priced.

If it was possible to leave a rating of more than 5 stars, I would. It was "Mission Impossible". They took on a really difficult and dirty carpet and made it look like new. I called them in the morning, and they cleaned the carpet that evening. The best carpet cleaning I've ever seen. Outstanding customer service. Highly recommend them!

Would never recommend the company. Ryan came in "cleaned" my carpet in less the 10 min. There was stains left on the carpet and also there was marks left in the hall way. After I cancelled my cheap due to poor workmanship, he called to tell me he was suing me for 500. Call someone which will clean your carpet not do a piss poor job and the threaten to sue you.

All American did the move-out carpet cleaning on my old apartment. They arrived on-time (even a few minutes early) and got right to work. They quickly got out stains that I had feared were permanent, such as the greasy dirt built up in the pathway from the kitchen. When the apartment owner arrived for the move-out inspection, he remarked that the carpets looked new! I would hire All American Carpet Cleaning again.

The owner was prompt in contacting me, was very understanding and responded to my needs. The man who came to clean the carpets was exceptionally professional, prompt, skilled, honest, courteous and conscientious. It is hard to find such people in business these days and when I do, I intend to spread the word and to continue to use their services. I highly recommend SunShine for carpet cleaning.

The service provided was to clean , sanitize, and apply a protector on multiple rooms of carpet. Service was excellent. Raymond and Lee were very efficient. The carpet looked amazing and the entire house smelled very clean and refreshed. The price didn't even come close to the outrageous estimate I had received from a company I have used in the past, very reasonable. Clean Systems will be the company I call from now on.

I have finally found a carpet and upholstery cleaner to stick with! Thumbtack is a very reliable site, reinforced by the professional, consciencesious and high quality work I received. My carpets, sofa and rug (very dirty & deeply stained) look new again. Once dry no stains magically reappeared as I’ve experienced with other companies. The total price was very competitive and given upfront. No surprises! Adam was polite, meticulous and clearly knows his stuff! I absolutely recommend hiring SuperShine Carpet Cleaning. They are definitely the company I’ll be using again and again.

Good and bad....they were very nice and showed up on time.....but the carpets did not look clean after...the high traffic areas were still dirty & the carpets looked only just vacuumed and even that wasn't done everywhere as I saw dirt by the walls in my bedroom, etc

Adam was awesome! He was punctual and set my expectations on how clean he could get the older carpets. Everything looks fantastic and was done quickly.

Very nice and does a great job. We just bought a house and wanted the bedroom carpets to be cleaned before we moved in our stuff. He actually cleaned more areas and for no extra charge. It was really nice of him. Will be using him again for future cleaning. Thank you!

Adam represented SuperShine wonderfully! Within minutes of submitting my request, I had a reasonable quote with an explanation of what to expect. Our daughter was moving out of a rental townhouse and we needed it to be left in better condition than when she moved in. I called to schedule an appointment and received Adam's voice mail. Within minutes I had a text back with an explanation that his machine was running and it would be too hard to hear but that he would call me asap; which he did. Scheduling was a breeze. The day of the cleaning, Adam called to say he was running a few minutes EARLY and asked if it was okay to come a little sooner than scheduled, absolutely!! He was professional and polite, he explained the process and immediately began to vacuum and clean the carpeting. It was nice to see that he had placed corner guards to protect the corners of the cabinets and walls. As a first time user of Thumbtack, I was a little skeptical. However, Adam was prompt, professional, polite, thorough, and did such an amazing job of cleaning the carpet in our daughter's townhouse. I would highly recommend SuperShine! (I wish I would have thought to take before and after pictures)
