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. 

Reviews for Huntersville carpet cleaners

Semper Fi came out to clean the carpet in my mom’s bedroom. It was stained and had an odor and I really wasn’t sure if it could become clean again. I waited to see if the stains would return before I wrote this review. It’s been a week and the carpet is still looking good. I am very pleased with the job Semper Fi did on our carpet. I also appreciate that they came to clean just one room for us. We do plan to have them back to clean all the carpeting in the house. Thank you Semper Fi.

The service was great and the employee was super nice. My only concern was that we had requested professional cleaning and the employee arrived on location with a machine that someone could rent from Harris Teeter. The carpet was cleaned and smelled great but kind of defeated the purpose of a professional cleaning.

The technician showed up on time, was professional, and performed the cleaning well. My issue is that the cleaning was over 17 hours ago and it the carpet is still very wet. It will likely take up to 24-48 hours to dry completely.

Ron did a fantastic job on a quick turn carpet cleaning. He responded to my request the same day, was able to provide an accurate estimate (what he quoted he charged) & scheduled within the week. Ron was courteous, professional & the carpets look great. Will definitely use GHC again. Thanks Ron!

Mario was such a great guy to work with! I hired him for a move out deep clean. My movers didn’t show the day before and rescheduled for the next morning. Mario called me back right away and adjusted his schedule to help me out. I had some mold stains in the master bedroom from furniture sitting on wet carpet that looked horrible and I basically told him “do what you can!” I was beyond impressed with how well they came out! I will definitely be hiring him again in a few months to clean the carpets in my new home. Mario went above and beyond and did excellent work. I highly recommend him!

I had 2 small bedrooms and our stairs cleaned. It only took maybe 30 minutes. After they left the carpet looked and smelled great. That lasted the day. The next day the rooms had the same musty smell that I was hoping would be taken care of. I'm not saying they did a bad job I guess I just thought that deodorizing, sanitizing, and steam cleaning would have helped more than it did.

Amazing cleaning that has restored my awful (pet stained mess) house to like new! I have a rescued Dachshund that just can't be house-trained. He has literally destroyed my carpets. I wanted to see if I could freshen them up for the holidays until I can replace them. Steve did an amazingly thorough job. They truly look brand new again. And all of the smells are gone! Steve is so professional and kind. He even left me a supply of a refreshing agent (all green supplies BTW) to use in the future at no charge. I will definitely call him again!
