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.

Reviews for Rockville carpet cleaners
Blake K.
We hired Shiny style Carpet Care to steam clean our basement carpets including steps and closet and he did an excellent job. Our old dirty carpet looks brand new and smells great (no more basement "muskiness"). He was very responsive, getting us scheduled for the cleaning within minutes of our inquiry, and the value was great - $145 for a large carpeted basement + ~10 steps.

Average experience. The carpet looks cleaner but it appears the company rushed to complete this job. Carpet was drenched with a lot of water even hours after work was performed. Would recommend ONLY if no other options. 3/5

We needed to have all the carpet in our home cleaned prior to the end of the lease agreement. Found Professional Carpet Cleaning Plus to be the most reasonably priced company on Thumbtack to complete the job. Nathan responded quickly with a quote and showed up ready to get to work. He and his associate cleaned the entire house (4 rooms, 3 staircases, and 1 hallway) in less than 2 hours!! When we need to have ANY carpet cleaning done in the future, we’re definitely going to call Nathan to get the job done right!

Alvaro did an awesome job! He called me prior to his arrival. He was on time and prepared. He was friendly and professional. He has a very clean appearance and wore his company shirt. Alvaro went straight to work. I had a room with toys and stuff everywhere. He had no problem moving furniture and toys out of his way to clean. Alvaro was able to get years of stains out of my carpet. My kids destroyed my carpets and Alvaro worked a miracle. My carpet looked brand new after he was done. His work is A+ and the cost for his services was very reasonable. I would recommend Alvaro to anyone looking for an outstanding carpet cleaner. I most definitely will hire him again!

Mica was very quick to respond, thorough in explaining what needed to be done in my really dirty situation, and did a thorough/beautiful job. The carpets were so clean - hopefully, for a little while, with 2 active cats around. Would highly recommend his service.

The cleaning crew did a fantastic job cleaning our new house before the move-in. We are so glad that they reached out to us when we created the project on Thumbtack. Making an appointment was a walk in the park. They kindly accommodated our frequent requests to add/change our cleaning needs. 4 cleaning crews and 2 carpet cleaners showed up. They all wore masks, gloves, and shoe covers. They were very thorough and meticulous. They cleaned back of the dryer and washer for those dust bunnies, pulled out the oven and fridge for small crumbs. All the gunk in the oven are gone. Absolutely fantastic! Bathrooms are sparkling and smell nice. We had a few pet stains in all rooms. We didn’t think we can get rid of them. It’s amazing how they are all gone now. We made another appointment with them for our current place’s move-out cleaning, and will definitely consider them for regular cleanings. Thank you!!
