Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

How often should carpets be steam cleaned?

Dirty carpets can be unhealthy for the people living in the home, particularly those who have allergies, so it’s important to have them cleaned regularly; simply vacuuming once or twice a week isn’t enough. Carpet cleaning should be done by a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year to remove grime and help extend the life of your carpet. Most carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning, which penetrates deep into the carpet fibers and lifts out both dirt and the pollutants that get tracked inside. Steam cleaning also removes most of the moisture, so carpets dry quickly enough for homeowners to resume using them the same day. Between professional carpet cleanings, your carpet may need an emergency spot cleaning. Pet accidents, food or drink spills, and more can often be effectively cleaned with some water and a drop of white vinegar, although many cleaners will also make house calls for smaller spills and hard-to-clean spots like wine or grease stains.

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

Whether your pet had an accident, the party got too wild, or your kids can’t control their juice boxes — we all need rug cleaning from time to time. In fact, even if you don’t have a spill or spot, it’s wise to have your area rug cleaned approximately once a year to keep the rug fibers in good health. In general, rug cleaning prices depend on the square footage of the rug, what the rug is made of, whether any repairs are needed, and whether you require the pro to travel to your location or provide pickup and drop-off services. Nationally, average area rug cleaning prices range from $80 to $120.

Wool and silk area rugs typically cost more to clean than rugs made from synthetic fibers because the more delicate materials take more care and may require specialized cleaning fluids. For example, a synthetic rug may cost $1.50 per square foot to clean; a wool, cotton, or chiffon rug could be $2 per square foot; and a silk or Navajo wool rug could cost $3 per square foot. The two most common rug cleaning methods are steam and chemical cleaning. The costs for the two methods are often the same, although a steam-cleaned rug will take longer to dry due to the moisture. If your area rug needs odor removal, moth deterrent, or hand washing, there will be additional charges.

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!
