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.

The technician was professional and polite during the whole process. The carpet was cleaned fresh. I’ll hire this company again next time I need carpet cleaning

My wife and I wanted to have the carpets cleaned in our new house before moving in. There was heavy staining in the master bedroom, and needed general cleaning in the other rooms. JC&A was reasonably priced, and Alvaro was willing to work within our schedule to get the carpets cleaned. He was quick to get to work and did an incredibly job. I can highly recommend him for in-home carpet cleaning!

The result of the carpet cleaning was poor. So much so that I had to hire another carpet cleaning professional (Forever Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning & Flooring) to come behind them the same day to clean the carpets again. Specifically, they did not pre-treat any problem areas (urine, high traffic areas, etc) and left stains they said couldn't be removed. They have a portable unit that I wouldn't recommend for a professional job (see first picture). Using tap hot water is not going to get the job done. I learned this the hard way, you should always get a professional who has a truck mounted systems that heats the water to at least 200+ degrees and has to ability to use professional grade detergents, enzyme treatments and peroxide treatment, if needed. Another very important point about this service. They did not wear mask or gloves at all while in the house or interfacing with me and since there is a pandemic those are basic requirements they failed at as professionals. It took them over six hours to complete the job. The second company I had come in completed the job on short notice (same day) and in 1.5 hours. I did pay Family Maid Cleaning Service because we had a business agreement but I didn't feel the results warranted them being paid. There is a difference between cleaning the carpets and the carpets being clean. See pictures below. They are all taken after they finished cleaning the carpets.

Ok! I'm impressed. I've had my carpet cleaned before. I always felt disappointed, to the point where I started doing it myself. But dealing with the carpet stains, dog and stairs and I was done.. So, after months of not shampooing my carpet (don't judge), I started looking for someone with a good rate and good reviews. Darius is definitely that person. Even my high traffic areas look good 🤗🤗.. I'm so impressed, I've already scheduled my next cleaning. Give him a try, you will not be disappointed.

I had a really bad water emergency that I couldn't wait to have fixed. They came out same day and thoroughly cleaned the carpets. They even cleaned other areas that weren't necessary. Being 9 months pregnant this was a huge life saver! Thanks again

I contacted Mica Carpet, Rugs and Upholstery to receive a quote. He responded within minutes and was able to provide me an initial estimate. After I explained that I have a pet and sent photos of the carpet, he immediately provided a revised estimate due to the additional information provided. He shared estimated time of arrival prior and confirmed the day of the appointment. He wad extremely professional and explained the process to me again. He worked independently without bothering me. The carpets turned out great. They are old but due to our older dog we’re holding off on replacing them. I’m extremely satisfied with the service, professionalism, responsiveness, quality, value and customer service. I don’t often write reviews, but wanted to in this instance. If need your carpets cleaned, give them a call!!

Initial service request was carpet cleaning for main floor/heavy traffic areas. Tom made the process hassle-free from initial consult- he arrived on time and completed ahead of schedule- we are very happy and will use Modern Interior again for other projects!

Alavaro and his team did a great job on our carpets. Not only were they punctual, but they were early! We have 2 large breed dogs and this deep cleaning was exactly what we needed. Thank you again to JC&A for your services, we will definitely be back.

This is a PROFESSIONAL carpet cleaning company! A lot of companies talk about how long they have been in business and the years of experience they have but then it doesn't translate to the service or product they provide. This is not the case with Forever Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning & Flooring. First, they came the same day that I needed help. I had a final walk through for the house I was renting the next day and they were gracious enough to schedule me the next day before the walk through and then Vera called me up and said they could come the same day at 4pm and I was ecstatic! Here husband and nephew came with masks on for COVID-19 safety and did a walk through assessment, wrote up the estimate and they went to work. Full disclosure, I had to hire them because another company I hired did a poor job. They went over the areas that the other company did and they looked fabulous! My walk through with the property management company this morning went flawlessly. I'm sure if I had walked through with the previous results I would have lost a great deal of my security deposit on the carpets being replaced. The whole team was personable, professional and everything you would want when you hire someone to clean your carpets. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Our carpets needed a professional cleaning, and I was afraid that the stains would not come out, especially since I had tried to get them out myself without any luck. Edibill Services got them truly clean and beautiful again. On top of that, the tech called to say he had arrived early in the area and asked if it would be convenient to come early. We deeply appreciated his consideration and professionalism. Thank you!

I found Mica carpet and upholstery cleaning to do a great job. There were stains on my chair that he honestly told me he wasn’t sure they could be removed. However it came out looking really good. I would recommend them and would use again. Tomer the owner was very professional and reliabale.

I paid to have 2 couches, 1 loveseat and a carpet cleaned. On the day all services were to be completed, the owner recommended their rug service where they take the rug back to their warehouse for a deep cleaning and that they would return the rug in 3 days. A month later and after the owner promised to return the rug countless times, it has still not been returned. I have filed a complaint with Thumbtack. My rug has been stolen by this company. BEWARE Update: Please understand I am no scammer. The owner is simply trying to hide the fact this is a very poorly run business and has yet to return my rug. Again, in my mind the rug is stolen. The whole concept of stealing a $100 rug is mind boggling to me to begin with. If anyone would like to read the messages where the owner over and over again promises to return the rug and never does, please message me.
