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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for professional carpet cleaning?

It’s common for professional carpet cleaners to accept digital payments such as Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay, Zelle, PayPal and others. The current COVID-19 pandemic is quickly encouraging other companies to digitally transform as well. Make sure the carpet cleaner you hire will accept a digital payment instead of cash or check, and come up with a strategy for complying with social distancing regulations.

Cleaned the carpets in my town home after the tenants moved out and were extremely friendly and efficient. They were good about helping me determine the right treatment for the rooms and didn't seem to oversell me. My main 2 issues that caused me to give average rating were that there were still a lot of spots remaining when the carpet dried and they didn't do anything to raise the carpets where the furniture had been resting. I'd have understood more about the spots if they weren't so easy to remove with a spot cleaner!

Quinten was fabulous. He did a thorough job on the stains. The carpet looks brand new. I had him clean my favorite chair at the last minute and after seeing it clean I had forgotten why I loved this chair. Thank you for such an awesome job.

Four stars because the initial quote was off however Nick honored the price he quoted and did an excellent job cleaning the carpet. I would definitely use him again but would make sure to be specific about all of the areas needing cleaning to avoid any issues

When I was told it would take about 2 hours to do the house I knew I hit the jackpot. I've used other carpet cleaners who did the house in less than an hour as I know they work on commission--more jobs, more money. And the stains always came back. Not this time. The carpet has never looked better. I am more than pleased.

We needed our carpets cleaned quickly and Steve was able to be at our home within 24 hours. Feeling at his worst, he still showed up and did an amazing job. Would definitely recommend and hire again.

He was on time on an icy day. He cleaned my carpets well. He was pleasant and quick & reasonably priced. What more could you ask! Excellent choice. Getting a new puppy so he'll be back here again.

Joe did an excellent job cleaning carpets, rugs, drapes and furniture. He spent extra time to get out odors and worked on my house as if it were his own. He did beyond what I expected. Definitely will hire again!

The technician showed up a little early, but called to say he could be there early. His truck was leaking what I thought was oi onto the driveway, and I pointed it out. All he did was put a towel down and said he would clean it up after he finished the job. It turned out to be power steering fluid, and made two large spot on the concrete driveway. Even though the technician tried to get the stain out, and then the owner came and tried as well--the spots would not come out. The owner did reduce the cost of the carpet job when I asked for a discount, but I would have rather paid full price and not had permanent stains on the driveway. There were also spots in the carpet that were not removed when the job was done, so we scheduled a follow up appointment, but the technician did not show up or call on the scheduled day. The owner did come the following Monday, and did get the spots out of the carpet. Overall, they did an adequate job on the carpet, but between the damage done to the driveway--and the inadequate follow up on the carpet spots, I would not use this company again.

The staff called and actually was able to come about 30 minutes early which was terrific. They were both very friendly and work very efficiently But now that the carpets are somewhat dry they don't look as clean as I thought they were when they left We have four dogs so I know the traffic area was very heavy but I was hoping for a little bit better results The emomoyees were terrific however
