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.

I had my living room carpet and a sectional sofa cleaned for a very fair and competitive price. My 4 year old sofa hadn't ever been professionally cleaned, and it has suffered through 3 kids and some sofa surfers from time to time. Needless to say it was looking kinda sketchy. Now it looks great! Carpet RX repair and cleaning specialists even removed dry red juice stains out of the carpet! My carpet looks brand new again. The specialist, Brandon C. was on time, polite, professional, friendly, knowledgeable and happy to help! Thanks so much for your service and eco-friendly RX Out professional strength carpet & upholstery spot cleaner. I will use Carpet RX again next time and will refer Carpet RX repair and cleaning specialists to all my friends and family.

This carpet cleaning service experience far exceeded my expectations. My old Berber carpet now looks almost new. I think the name of the company should be MAGIC Carpet Cleaners Plus! The transformation was amazing, the service tech was not only professional but also personable and it was definitely a good bang for the buck!

Pure Clean was even better than I could have imagined. Awesome customer service and they did a wonderful job on my carpets. We've had the carpets cleaned at our rental condo twice before and were told several stains were permanent. Jason not only made them disappear, he made the carpet look better than it has in many years. I'm going to have him clean our own home soon. Great rates!

Garry was right on time to the job sight yesterday, surveyed the area to be cleaned, discussed what he thought would work best, answered my questions about the process, and got right to work. He first vacuumed the carpet thoroughly and then pre-sprayed the the whole carpet, going over the trouble spots with extra spray. After a few minutes to allow the pre-spray to work, he began the low-moisture cleaning process. He took his time over the whole apartment, not rushing the work, which I truly appreciated. When he was done, the carpet and apartment both smelled fresh and clean, not like perfume. Following Gary's instructions, I allowed the carpets to further dry for an hour or so and then vacuumed again to pull out any leftover encapsulated soil. The carpet was nearly dry in an hour and looked nearly new! The work quality was great! The price was exactly what Gary quoted online and over the phone and very reasonable. You will not go wrong booking Stat Carpet Cleaning to take care of your carpet cleaning needs. Thanks, Garry!

Jason arrived promptly at the scheduled time. Pure Clean does a very professional job in assuring all of our hopeful expectations were addressed. They spent considerable time in preparation on trouble areas that we didn't think we're going to clean up very well. To our amazement all of the spots and trouble areas came out very nice. We were considering replacing the carpet but his efforts saved us that expense for having to replace all of the carpet. I highly recommend Pure Clean for all of your carpet and tile cleaning.

Brandon was great. He showed up on time to clean 3 rooms and two sofas. He took the time to explain what he was going to do and was candid about what his typical carpet cleaning could do and not do. I have 30 year old carpet so knew it could not be brought back to "new" but was pleased with the results.

I was staying with “family” and trapped with 5 animals in one bedroom for two months. They complained the entire time how their carpet would be destroyed. This guy came and cleaned that room without trying to sell me more services and that carpet smelled and looked new. My “family” can’t complain about the carpet anymore. It was awesome that it was so clean and also that they had to shut up about it too! Lol. Love this guy. He totally understood what I was facing and saved me from more of their criticism. Thank you! He’s awesome!

Garry was great through the whole process and especially with his actual work. He anticipated 4-5 hours of work and spent 8 hours without taking a break or going for lunch at NO extra cost. We just purchased the house and the carpet was very neglected and had several serious stains but no pets. Garry worked very hard trying to make the carpet the best that could humanly possible be and I feel he succeeded doing so. Everything Garry said he would do he did from the time showing up and to the cost. Which was a very reasonable price for the time and effort that he extended to cleaning the carpet. I have already been handing out his business cards to family and friends recommending Garry for their Carpet cleaning needs. On a scale of 1-10 Garry was a 12 at least.

The entire time he was pleasant & professional; answering any & every question asked as well as explaining things not thought of. The carpets looked wonderful when he was finished & he gave some pointers on things taht can cause stains, how to prevent/maintain our carpet. We will definitely use him again for semi-annual cleaning in our new home.

Somehow I was overlooked and had to make several phone calls to get resolved. I loved the two technicians, extremely professional, polite, and eager to please. However, not the best carpet cleaning I have had done. Going back to the small guys, they are much more thorough.
