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.

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.

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.

T did an amazing job on my carpet. I just moved into my new home and I needed someone to come in and clean the carpet to get rid of the previous owner's germs. Within 2 hours my carpet was clean and my carpet looked great.

My experience with clean master was incredible. Not only did he clean my carpets with less than 24 hour notice. He was patient while I was delayed in traffic. Then we he started actually cleaning the carpet that’s when the magic happened. See for yourself.

They cleaned my carpet very well. However, I was clear that I also needed the carpets protected. I received confirmation that, the carpets were getting protected. But they weren’t protected…found that out when my dog knocked over a wet plant pot. The soil stained my carpet badly.

The carpets on my staircases were dirty and needed to be cleaned. I reached out to Duran yesterday and he promptly scheduled me for today. He kept me apprised on his status on the way to my house and arrived promptly. He assessed the work and got busy trying to rehabilitate my carpet. After about an hour, my carpets are like new and I am a satisfied customer. He was professional and cleaned up when all the work was done. The price was also reasonable. Thank you, thank you!!

Century Cleaning arrived on time and worked fast to get multiple stairs and living areas cleaned in a little over an hour. The carpet dried within five hours. Price was reasonable for the amount of work. I would hire Century again.

Very quick response time and also very punctual. Carpets are clean, although he told me before starting that one of the stains was most likely permanent. :-( Price was very reasonable. Thanks for your help!

The pro was scheduled to arrive on Sunday to shampoo the carpet before my tenants could move in. Apparently, the van broke down and he couldn’t come. It was a true inconvenience for my new tenants who were expecting to move in on the first of the month. When the pro arrived the next day, he refused to clean the carpet until I paid him. This bothered me because I prefer to pay after services are rendered. He refused to budge, even after arriving a day late.

Daruis showed up on time and on point. He quickly evaluated what needed to be done and got right to work. The carpets he cleaned looked practically brand new and he went so far as to suggest how to keep them looking good. He will definitely be the go to contact whenever we need and flooring taken care of. Great value and money well spent. Highly recommended!!
