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.

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.

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.

I had my carpet cleaned a few years ago and it wasn’t good and I thought because the carpet was old but now it looks new again. Will definitely hire again. The only thing they didn’t mention about deep clean charge at the time of booking and I have to pay $100 extra but it worth it.

My thanks to National Dusters for its prompt response to my request for carpet cleaning . Terrie Stevenson was both friendly and efficient. The work performed by their technician was outstanding. I really didn't think my dingy carpet would ever look this good again! Kudos! Job well done!

GSTV did an outstanding job cleaning our carpets. They were responsive, showed up on time, and had wonderful customer service. I own an Air Duct Cleaning Company and will be referring them to any of my customers that ask about this service 10 stars!!!

I had mixed feelings about this carpet cleaning. They were very quick to schedule and they gave an accurate and reasonable quote. I question the professionalism; Whenever I would call or they would call me I didn't really know who I was talking to because they didn't answer the phone with a business name. Strange. The cleaning itself was painful. The tech was on time, he arrived in the last 5 minutes of their 2-hour window. Unfortunately, he struggled to keep the machine running at times and said it was because of my outlets. While that may be partially true, it was very awkward because the lights were still on, and he didn't seem to know how to troubleshoot it. Eventually the machine did start back up and the cleaning was completed. There were puddles of water on my hardwood and tile floor. I ended up cleaning them up after the fact. A couple items in my house were knocked to the floor (nothing fragile). My carpets were wet for 48 hours in places after the cleaning. And I don't have high pile carpet. I'm concerned about mold growth and potential issues in the near future. I don't know if that was a mistake in the process or that's the typical result from this company. I don't know that I would use them in the future. In fairness, I don't have a lot of experience with other carpet cleaning companies.

Did a great job cleaning my wall to wall carpets! Very thorough. Quick responses to questions on here. He was running behind so we had to reschedule to the next morning, but he was very communicative about it.
Warren C.
We were very pleased how our very dirty carpet cleaned up. He communicated well with explanations. Pleasant and friendly. We recommend him highly and will hire him again. Was more than reasonably priced.

I used National Dusters recently for cleaning my carpets. I normally don't leave feedback but I felt that need to after my experience. Reason why I'm a happy customer: 1. Terrie did a fantastic job with communicating to me. She called me let me know the National Dusters employee was on his way and when he arrived. 2. Terrie was very flexible with my needs. I actually scheduled two appointments with them. The first appointment had to be postponed due to a power outage in my building. The second appointment was rescheduled. National Dusters was very understanding with the circumstances in which I couldn't control. 3. Staff was prompt and did a great job. I had several high traffic areas that look brand new. 4. After the cleaning, my carpet wasn't overly wet, just damp. This is what I would expect. 5. I was given feedback about when it would be okay to walk across the carpet as well as put down rugs. I would recommend them without hesitation and would definitely consider them for services above and beyond carpet cleaning.

It was easy to get an appt set up, the quote was accurate, the technician was very friendly yet efficient and took great care in covering my floors with rugs where the hoses would be touching. And, the carpet and furniture came out cleaner than I expected.

They did an amazing job!!! Our landlord was REALLY happy with the results. We have a pet so our lease specified paying to have the carpet cleaned when we moved out. We couldn’t be happier with the results! Very safe and very professional!
Christine A.
He was absolutely wonderful! Did an amazing job on ALL the carpeting in my apartment. Sprayed pre cleaning treatment on and he went to town; cleaning all the dirt and mess. After he was done it smelled great and looked brand new. He was fast and effeciant. I highly recommend him to everyone! Give him a try!! You wont be dissatisfied.
Dominic M.
He went above and beyond. My basement had a lingering smell from previous tenants smoking. He came in, chatted with me a bit, then got to work and knocked it out the park! Really appreciate the clean scent and carpets. Very much worth the price Thank you.
