Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Compare carpet cleaners near you to see which types of payments they accept.

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.

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.

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. 

How often should carpets be steam cleaned?

Dirty carpets can be unhealthy for the people living in the home, particularly those who have allergies, so it’s important to have them cleaned regularly; simply vacuuming once or twice a week isn’t enough. Carpet cleaning should be done by a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year to remove grime and help extend the life of your carpet. Most carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning, which penetrates deep into the carpet fibers and lifts out both dirt and the pollutants that get tracked inside. Steam cleaning also removes most of the moisture, so carpets dry quickly enough for homeowners to resume using them the same day. Between professional carpet cleanings, your carpet may need an emergency spot cleaning. Pet accidents, food or drink spills, and more can often be effectively cleaned with some water and a drop of white vinegar, although many cleaners will also make house calls for smaller spills and hard-to-clean spots like wine or grease stains.

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

Whether your pet had an accident, the party got too wild, or your kids can’t control their juice boxes — we all need rug cleaning from time to time. In fact, even if you don’t have a spill or spot, it’s wise to have your area rug cleaned approximately once a year to keep the rug fibers in good health. In general, rug cleaning prices depend on the square footage of the rug, what the rug is made of, whether any repairs are needed, and whether you require the pro to travel to your location or provide pickup and drop-off services. Nationally, average area rug cleaning prices range from $80 to $120.

Wool and silk area rugs typically cost more to clean than rugs made from synthetic fibers because the more delicate materials take more care and may require specialized cleaning fluids. For example, a synthetic rug may cost $1.50 per square foot to clean; a wool, cotton, or chiffon rug could be $2 per square foot; and a silk or Navajo wool rug could cost $3 per square foot. The two most common rug cleaning methods are steam and chemical cleaning. The costs for the two methods are often the same, although a steam-cleaned rug will take longer to dry due to the moisture. If your area rug needs odor removal, moth deterrent, or hand washing, there will be additional charges.

My carpet is very old and it looks so bright and clean since Anthony cleaned it. I would hire Dependable Carpet Cleaning again. Very attentive service.

They were kind enough to work with our schedule and get the carpets cleaned before our movers showed up. As a property manager I've used several carpet cleaning services and this was by far the best!

GREAT Service!!! Sam was thorough and conscientious! He spent a good 20 minutes pre-treating the carpet! I was amazed how clean the heavily trafficked white carpet. No soaked padding, carpet was dry in about 4 hours!!! Dependable Carpet Cleaning is completely AFFORDABLE!!! There were NO up-charges!!!!! (That was a first for me). Search NO further, go with Dependable! I loved the fact that it was a truck mounted system, that they brought there own water supply and that the water was heated to like 265 degrees and that they used enzymes to clean (instead of soap) and that they gave a precise appointment time (there was NO 2-4 hour window!!!) I will only use Dependable Carpet Cleaning from here on out!

Anthony was awesome. The minute I spoke with him on the phone, I knew he was the right person to call out for my carpets. He was thorough the house smells great now. I asked him to peek inside a vent while he was cleaning the carpets. He found some disturbing artifacts that needed out attention. Wife and I decided to clean the vents. They were completed while the carpets were being cleaned. I could not beore pleased with the service or the quality.

Anthony and one of his employees recently cleaned the carpet in my new home. Not only was the work exceptional but they were very professional and friendly. In fact I asked if they could clean my tile floors that same day and they did and the tile looked just as amazing as the carpet. One of the bedrooms had been used as an office by the previous owner so there were black marks on the carpet from the office chair. There is no trace of that stain even today. So of course I hired Dependable Carpet Cleaning a second time to clean the carpet in my "old" house which was recently put on the market. I emailed Anthony one day asking if he could do the carpet the following day, if possible, otherwise the following week. He made it a priority to come out the next day and made sure I was satisfied as there were a few tough stains which he treated several times and really scrubbed the dirt out. I can't believe how clean that carpet came! I would highly recommend to anyone and have already told family/friends.

The job was a one room carpet job. Dependable was on time and did a good job on our carpet.There were a couple stains that would not come out; but Dependable was very courteous and educated us regarding the stains. The whole room had a clean fragrance from the carpet being cleaned. We were pleased!!!!

My carpet had not been cleaned in 2 years. Anthony listened to my concerns specifically about stains that were not removed by other cleaners who tried since 2008. Anthony removed the stains by pretreating and cleaning the area. I could not be happier.
