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.

Great experience with Clearwater Carpet Cleaning. Got some super stubborn stains out and left our carpets smelling clean and fresh.

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!
