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.

I found Adam Vasquez @ SuperShine Carpet Cleaning on Thumbtack, he came to our home yesterday and cleaned our 20-year-old cream-colored carpet which had several stains, pictures below. Adam provided an amazing cleaning service and I am so thrilled with the results, it looks and feels so nice! I have used big-name Carpet Cleaning Services in the past, but results have never been this good. I have high expectations and do not normally makes recommendations, but I highly recommend Adam @ SuperShine for fantastic results. Thank you Adam!!!

The carpets looked great after they were cleaned and smelled good as well. They were able to get out our trouble spots as well as pet stains.

Showed up on time. Very friendly. He went over the cost and options before starting the job. Took around an hour. Carpet looks fabulous! Stains came out. I have tried several carpet cleaning companies in the past. Some were very expensive - some left my carpet soaking wet and some didn't remove the dingy look. All American had very reasonable prices and I am pleased with the outcome.

Wonderful job! Our home was far overdue for cleaning and the technicians were professional and knew how to take care of things. They were in and out and got it all clean and smelling fresh. Needed to wait longer for drying time which is frustrating but worth the value of having clean carpets and noticing not only the difference in appearance but also the deodorizing benefits

Adam did an absolutely fantastic job! He was professional and polite. We were impressed with him from the very beginning. He was quick to respond to phone calls and texts when we were initially setting up the appointment. On the day of cleaning he was on time. He was very patient with all our questions and took the time to make sure we understood what was happening. Adam was very thorough and finished within the time frame he originally gave us. We were very pleased with how clean the carpets were when he was finished! We will call Adam for all our carpet needs in the future. I would highly recommend SuperShine!

All American cleaned and deoderized our house during the move in process. Ryan said it would be dry in a couple of hours and ready to go. For the most part it was exactly as he said and the carpets looked good and the animal odors were nearly non existant. Great work, and handled very quickly and smoothly.

Superior job done. Jared even went to my neighbors home to do a quick go over when the neighbor came and asked, spur of the moment. I was impressed with how clean the carpet is. I had pet issues, and that all came out. I will be having him go to a family members home soon, and I definitely recommend him to others. I will call him again when I need it done again in the future. Top notch work & efficient.

Ryan at all American was awesome. I had two properties that needed cleaning and worked around many scheduling changes. He was always on time and did a greart job. Here answered all my questions I had. Here found a rip in my carpet at my new home and gave me some seam tape and walked me through how to fix it. I couldn't hang around the second property while he was working, so he did his work, and locked up my unit after he was all done. His price was on point and I won't use another company. Very professional company A+!
