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.

Driver/carpet cleaner called to see if they could come early, which I appreciated. Carpet cleaner did not know what services I had signed up for so I had to re-explain. Cleaning machine overflowed during and onto our hardwood floor. Some of tougher stains did not come out, I would have preferred more treatment on tough stains.

Job: Frise Carpet cleaning (longer haired carpet) Method: pre-treatment and then truck mounted system to offer high pressure hot water cleaning. Pros: technician was On-time; friendly; and patient (I was late). Cons: I was expecting a clean smell from any light trace of residue from shampoo or "pre-treatment" but there was none. I Perhaps this is a good thing and not really a con, but generally we associate a soap or chemical smell (or something) when carpets are pretreated and cleaned. My carpets smelled the same as before being treated with the exception of a wet smell to it. My carpets were in really good condition to begin with so it was hard to tell how "clean" of a shampoo it was. I turned the heat up to help with drying as of course it will be damp after shampoo. Took 3 days at 72 degrees inside the home with the furnace fan on continuously at high. The carpet after being dried, were crunchy to the touch instead of soft like before; whatever that means. I was not there to watch the pre-treatment process to see how much or little was used or ask what's in it, so I recommend doing this and staying for the work so you can ask questions you may have.

Greg did a great job cleaning the carpet at our condo. The carpet was over 10 years old and had many stains. He got out the stains and even brushed it out so it looks like new. I will hire Greg again.

The serviceman came on time and did an excellent job. He was also able to clean another set of stairs for us. We are waiting to see if the spots in the carpet return, as happened with a different cleaning service.

Just purchased a home and needed carpets cleaned asap. Tony arrived promptly within an hour of requesting service and finished in less than 2 hours. Good service and professional. Carpets were damp and took 24 hours to dry with the raining weather. Very impressed!
