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.

Bryan did an amazing job with my carpets, gave great advice on how to take care of day-to-day type carpet stains in-between cleanings, and overall was a true professional (showed on time, was incredibly personable). The carpets look as good as new and were finished in record time. I will be having them back again!

Let me tell you that working with Andre was a great experience. I needed his service for my carpets that hadn't been deep cleaned since we moved in (been in my home for over 5 years). I felt so bad for waiting so long that I wasn't expecting a big miracle but not only did I get clean carpets but a miracle in knowing that Andre did a blessing on my carpets. They look so good he even did my house in two trips and hit my stubborn areas more then once. I will be using him from now on with my carpets and other services he offers. Thank you Andre!

Working with Century was great from the get go. Incredibly responsive and they organized my carpet cleaning in a few days with my tight timeframe. Nick was my operator and he was wonderful—he explained everything clearly and was quick and efficient. He got all of the pet stains out of my carpet—I couldn’t believe it. I thought we were going to need to rip it out! Thanks to Nick, our carpet looks like new again!

I highly recommended Ali and his team. They were great to work with and would hire them again in the future. They came in, vacuumed my carpets, deep cleaned them, and steamed them. I had some really bad stains and my carpet looks brand new!!!! They took great care of my home and provided great customer service. So thankful I chose Ali and his team.

They haven't came out to clean my carpets yet.. my appt. Is nov. 23 at 9 am so I can't give a full review but u can tell you he has been wonderful with answering all my questions and replying as soon as he could. As long as he does a great job on the carpets which I'm pretty sure he will, then we are going to have him back to do the bottom half of the house. Great man to work with!

Ricco was punctual, professional, and affordable. Most importantly, our extremely dirty rugs (dogs, cat, kids) were cleaned very well. Our runners, dining room and bedroom rugs are like new. We will definitely and exclusively use RK Carpet in the future.

Timely response rate to our request. Comparable rates. Chris arrived on time and was professional. As a knowledge expert, he explained in detail the best options for cleaning the carpet and preserving its color. He walked through various scenarios before implementing a process that had outstanding results.

I was expecting 2 people but the company sent one person. If the worker had someone to help him with equipment, he probably would not have been 2 1/2 hours late and probably would not have rushed in cleaning the carpet. I’m satisfied with my upholstery. Must do better in serving the Public.

This guys are amazing!! Great costumer service from my first call to the end and they are very professional! I contact them with a last minute request and they responded immediately and call me when they were 20 minutes away, which was great for me to plan and then they show up on time with a great smile :-) We walked the spaces together and the carpet that I needed to clean, they gave me their suggestions and I never feel they were pushing any extra charges and I truly appreciate that! Robert showed me the options, we selected based on my budget and in no time, my carpet (bedroom, den & stairs) were like new!! Great prices too! I really like to work with people that likes their job! And this is the perfect example! I felt this was the best company I could have hired for the job and no doubt I will call them again!
