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.

We contacted Frank for cleaning the carpets in 6 rooms and 2 flights of stairs. Frank was prompt in his replies, and was very punctual. He was efficient and thorough, not to mention courteous and approachable. He was done in about 2.5 hours, and left my carpets very clean, and smelling fresh. Highly recommend Supreme Flooring & Cleaning for their carpet cleaning service.

They're cleaning the carpets in the entire house....but not for a month. So far wevhave only communicated via phone but...I hired Angel Hopkins here on Thumbtack to clean the home we're moving out of and the one we're moving into. My normal cleaning lady had surgery so I asked Angel to fill in. Let me say Angel is AMAZING and during our many chats carpet cleaning came up. She cleans the Greshams home for them. Well we all know if you want a testimony look in the owners home. Angel said their carpets are ALWAYS immaculate. I will update you after they do my carpets Oct. 10.

I was billed for 3 rooms and a staircase. Ray cleaned my small office without charging me extra. The carpets look great and they are indeed drying very quickly. I will use JRS Fast Dry Carpet Cleaning again and I will recommend the company to others.

I trusted the positive reviews Danny had on Thumbstack and the reviews proved to be true based on the work Dany and his son did at our place. We had a Move In Cleaning and the carpets were dirty from the painting work and other electrical work we had got done. Dany did the hardwood cleaning and polishing while his son did the carpet cleaning. Carpets were really looking clean and smelled nice too after the cleaning and they accommodated all our request to remove and food stains and to polish or clean spots which needed extra cleaning. I would definitely recommend Dany to my friends and future cleaning needs.

Vante did a great job cleaning our carpets today! The value for a room and two sets of stairs was great. Our carpets look so much better than they did. He was great at availability and setting up a time, plus explained everything he was doing and was more than willing to go the extra step to get the job done. I'll definitely be contacting him for carpet cleaning services in the future.

He did a fantastic job cleaning my carpets. He also got my bathroom rug wet and left puddles of water on my non-carpeted floors. It wasn't a BIG deal; I got a towel and dried the floors, but it was still a little irritating that I had to clean up after him.

I still have all the stains on the carpet. I was told it was mold , those are stains. They cleaned the carpet mostly like if we rent the rugdoctor from homedepot. Before cleaning they would have known the issue, but never told anything . I would have definitely gone for other service. Would not have invested in this service. I would say average service and they are quick to respond and schedule.
