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.

Derrick worked with me to accommodate my schedule. He arrived 7 minutes early! Perfect! Ima son just bought a home and every time we went in my throat started hurting. I knew the carpets needed to be cleaned but everyone said they looked good! I contacted Derrick to come in and clean the carpets before we move any furniture into the house. Derrick cleaned the carpets and they were definitely DIRTY He paid attention to detail and everything looks pristine! Don’t hesitate to choose this company. You and your carpets will thank me!

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!

Trustworthy and professional. I left my home open for them and they went in, completed the job and I was able come home to a clean carpet. This was a rental property where the tenant had a dog. There was no signs of a dog or even one stain or odor once cleaned.

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.

I booked two weeks ago with the carpet cleaning and tried to confirm the appointment multiple times before. However, on the appointment day, no one showed up and nobody called to explain why they are not coming. Very disappointing. Do not use.

I needed carpets cleaned at the last minute, on a Sunday too. He was able to fit the job into his day off and also early in the morning as I needed. I am very appreciative of his flexibility and professionalism. Was also very nice to have a wonderful conversation with him. The carpet came out absolutely spotless. I was very impressed with the completed job! Pricing was reasonable for the size of the townhouse. I am going to hire them to clean my couch and area rugs one I get settled into my new house. Needless to say I highly recommend this company!

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.
