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.

Carpet cleaning living room and 3 bedrooms. Had to reschedule and they were very accommodating but then forgot the appointment and we had to call them. They were still able to make it the day we wanted to clean. Cleaning was done in less time than quoted and the carpet looked very good.

Though Darren was nice, the carpet stains were not either of the two rooms he "cleaned."

Darren did an excellent job on cleaning the carpets on my rental property. He actually got down on his hands and knees and scrubbed the stains to get them out. The carpets dried within 90 minutes as he said they would and the stains were gone. I have always used a national chain on my carpets but will be switching to SPA for the future cleanings. I think it makes a difference when the owner of a company comes out to do the work versus a national chain with young guys who are just making an hourly wage. Very pleased with my carpet cleaning and the fact that he drove over an hour to do my carpets and his price is reasonable. 5 stars for Darren Hines.

I hired S-P-A Carpet Cleaning LLC to clean the carpets in my home before Christmas. I really enjoyed the fact that Darren completed the work himself. He clearly explained the work and the anticipated outcome. He was on time and professional the entire process. I will definitely be using his services again.

I hired Maple City Building Services to clean my carpets. Prompt service, they were able to come on short notice. Price very competitive. They got my carpets looking amazing, and got stains up that others couldn't. Would do business with them again!

Wonderful! Darrin is very professional and super nice. He arrived in time and our carpets and furniture look great! We had a serious problem with cats urinating on the carpet and furniture. He used a special cleaning solution that is fantastic. It has been 2 months and absolutely no smell has returned. I would definitely recommend him and use again if needed.

This was a job well done: professional, efficient and resulted in an excellent outcome. In addition to my steps, hallway and family room, my high quality area rug in a high traffic area turned out very well, better than when I had it dry cleaned for 350.00! The carpeting and rug were full of dog hair and there was almost none when the job was done--a great accomplishment!
