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.

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.

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.

Jim cleaned the carpets in my two bedroom townhouse. He responded to all my calls and emails very quickly and professionally. Jim even took the time to explain the process to me and he answered my questions very thoroughly. He worked very hard on my carpet and I was very pleased with the results. Our carpet was badly stained and very dirty overall and the end result was very impressive. I would definitely recommend Jim and Fiber-Tech!

I had a very good experience with Geraldo, he was responsive from beginning to end. I wasn’t home when the cleaning was done and he sent me before and after pictures. I’d recommend their services anytime you need your carpet cleaned.

Jim was amazing, he was there on time and cleaned our carpet really well, he showed us some spots that cannot be cleaned as they had some color in it and was upfront about it. He wore a mask all the time. I would call Jim again for my future needs.

Okay, color me impressed. Frank is the real deal. This is a young man who not only will get the job done to your satisfaction but at a more than reasonable price. I'd had carpet cleaners come out to the house before. None, however, were like Frank. He pretreated my entire carpet with a spray to supposedly loosen the dirt trapped within and then proceeded to go over the whole thing with a power sweeper type contraption before applying steam application. I have to admit, I was skeptical that anything could clean our carpet. You can see and feel the difference. All I have to say I'm one happy customer and I will certainly being seeing Frank again. Thank you!

He cleaned the carpet but failed to explain why some spots could not removed. There are some black spot on the stairwell did not go. Also he charged 50.00USD extra stating this is atwo story building. When he gave the quote it was mentioned that stairs need to cleaned which means it is a two story house. Please don't encourage these type of contractors on Thumbtack, Lest we have to go some where else for contractor shopping

Wow I cannot say enough about my experience today with this service I have had my carpets cleaned every year for the last 10 years and these guys by far were the most professional they did not try to upsell me on stain removal’s and treatments they were on time and the price was right. Henry the foreman/lead technician on the job was nothing but courteous and listened to everything I had to say.

Frank was great to work with. He allowed me to change my scheduled time when I got overwhelmed with my schedule. He got to work which allowed me to run back to my old house to get some more packing done while he worked. Gave me an estimate of how long it would take him and was right on. I returned after that length of time and he was just putting his hoses away. He provided me with booties so I could go check my carpets without messing anything up or getting my socks wet. They look great! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Supreme Flooring and Cleaning, Inc!
