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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Fort Wayne carpet cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
We needed the carpets cleaned in our new house. Clearwater came out on a Saturday, to accommodate our scheduled, and cleaned three floors of carpet. After just a few hours our carpets were back to new and the price was very reasonable too. I would recommend their services and will hire them for the next time our carpets need cleaning.

He did a great job on our carpet. Are carpet was trashed due to some very bad renters and he was able to clean it up much more than we expected. We would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a professional carpet cleaner.

I had an urgent need for carpet cleaning services, and called Chad on a Saturday morning with my request for help! He was able to work me into his already busy schedule knowing my desperate situation. Not only that, he arrived within an hour, and cleaned my carpet perfectly and quickly, leaving no stains. I'm a repeat customer, and will continue to employ Chad for all of my future carpet cleaning needs. It should also be noted that Chad's wife is always very friendly, upbeat, and courteous when I call to schedule my appointments! Thank you both!

Hired to clean the living room carpet and hallway. Did a decent job for the price, still a few slightly visible stains, but overall a good job.

Carpet looked good when he left but went right back the way it was within 3 days. I don’t feel like he cleaned “deep” enough.

Darren cleaned 5 rooms plus a hallway. He arrived on time and did a great job with my old carpet. I would recommend S-P-A for quality and value.

Chad arrived on time and was pleasant and professional. He steam cleaned five carpeted rooms/areas, after pre-treating a few pet stains and higher-traffic areas. He worked carefully, quickly and neatly. His bid was competitive. The carpet is about 13 years old, but well-kept. So, while it did not look new again (which I didn't expect), it certainly looked cleaner and brighter and smelled nice, too. I will recommend Chad and Clearwater to family and friends.

After researching professional and reliable Carpet Cleaners in the Fort Wayne area who only have exceptional reviews, I contacted S-P-A Carpet Cleaning to clean & deodorize all of the carpeted areas of my mother's home. Darren was extremely professional and easy to communicate with in setting up our appointment. He called the night before our scheduled day to let me know that he would be a few minutes late as he needed to pick up some extra supplies (this was not an issue for me personally, as I had already blocked out the entire morning knowing that he was coming from Goshen and he would be cleaning the 6 areas). Darren spent a great deal of time walking through the home with me talking about certain trouble areas including various types of stains, traffic patterns and each of my concerns etc....then he got to work and he did an excellent job!! When he was finished, he walked me through the home again. I am sure this may not be the worst carpeting that Darren has ever cleaned, but this light, cream-colored carpet was really dirty with multiple stains and today it's pretty AMAZING! Clean. Deodorized. Fresh...in approximately two hours. My mother is absolutely thrilled and I am too!! We will definitely be calling Darren again. Professional. Reliable. Exceptional. This was my criteria. Darren delivered. 5 STARS to Darren!

Chad cleaned one room in my house with a off white carpet. He showed up on time and he was nice and professional. He was honest about what he could do with the carpet since it was white and had old stains. He moved a few pieces of furniture and he got the job done quickly. I will definitely use him again.
