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.

He deodorized all the carpets first. He raked all of them to remove dog hair and then he cleaned them. He said he wanted to make the old carpeting look new. Joe is an extremely polite man who works very hard.

I could not be happier with my carpet cleaning experience! Joe was so friendly and prompt. He did an amazing job on my carpets. I didn't realize how dirty they were until Joe cleaned them. Now they look brand new. His prices are by far the most reasonable that I found. I would definitely recommend Joe to all of my friends and family.

Eric arrived on time and was very professional in his appearance and greeting. He examined all areas of my carpet which had pet stains from some years ago and were never properly taken care of. A rug was my salvation until Eric's arrival. After a careful examination he told me that the carpet was cleanable but would require multiple cleanings. Eric honestly told me that the carpet would never look new but he would do his best. When pushing him to tell me what I needed to do we discussed it and I came to the realization that I needed new flooring. I went directly to Home Depot and set up an installation of laminate flooring. Eric's honesty was money out of his pocket but he wanted to make sure I was perfectly satisfied. I would and will recommend Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning by Eric to anyone who has excellent carpet cleaning needs. Eric's honesty made me very happy and his professionalism made me happy with what I needed to do with my flooring. In this day and age Eric is a rare bird.

Joe was very nice, professional when I talked to him over the phone. The property manager of this rental unit said the carpet did not look like it had been cleaned, just vacuumed. Not sure if the stains are removable.

They arrived on time. Seems like it was just a steam clean I've seen carpet cleaner not sure if I should've asked for something different. Also they didn't originally move couch as stated in their agreement but my fiancé was able to catch them before they left to do that part again not horrible but not the best either.

My review: Joe was fantastic! Professional and friendly he got to work right away. Was very kind to my two dogs as well. It didn't take him long at all to clean three rooms and the carpets in each look brand new! Will be calling him again for future cleanings and highly recommend him to everyone, especially pet owners.
