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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a professional carpet cleaner or steam cleaner when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a carpet cleaner or steam cleaner, follow all guidelines surrounding social distancing, sanitize any involved surfaces, ventilate indoor areas where workers have been and use digital payment services instead of cash or a check. Before the pro arrives at your home, create a plan with them to make sure everyone in the household stays safe.

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.

I had a rental property that was not maintained by the tenant. During the three years of occupancy the tenant failed to clean the carpet and left some ugly spots thru out the second floor. Avenger Carpet Cleaning spent the time to revive the carpeting and make it presentable for the new tenants.

Did and excellent job on cleaning very dirty carpet at my daughter's home. Carpet had not been cleaned since she had the house built three years ago. Very satisfied. In addition he came in cheaper than his estimate; and not like the commercial carpet cleaners,did not try to sell us other products that are not needed. Highly recommend him.

Highly recommend Avenger Carpet Cleaning. Our hallway carpet looks almost brand new. I don’t know if the previous owners of our home had it cleaned ever, and our new puppy had several accidents :(. I was not expecting much improvement, however, it turned out amazingly well. We also had Avenger Carpet Cleaning clean our couch and area rug which look amazing too. Very satisfied and would highly recommend

The young man, Brandon Towns was impressively dressed and was extremely professional. I had several dark spots on my white carpet that were left by my puppy. Mr Towns came in, moved the furniture, vacuumed the carpet, sprayed something on the spots and ran his carpet cleaner over the area. The carpet sparkled clean within minutes. Afterwards, he put down a stain repellent. And he only charged me $39.00. I can't say enough about his great proffessial service.

Carpet was well cleaned, no problems, and they adapted to the layout of getting into the apartment complex without creating a hassle for me.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Martin. He was extremely professional from start to finish. He communicated his ETA perfectly and actually arrived a little bit earlier than scheduled which was perfect for me. I wanted to do something nice for my grandmother and have her carpets cleaned. Her carpet has NEVER been cleaned. (She's been living in that home for 40+ years). I was blown away when I saw her carpets after he was finished cleaning them; it looked brand new. No lie. I would definitely 100% recommend Martin to anyone who needs their carpets cleaned.

I had the carpet cleaned in the living room and the dining room and the one in the bathroom. I also had the couch cleaned. The bathroom carpet turn out well, all the stains was removed. A few stains in the dining and living room was still there when he had finished, although most was the same as the ones from the bathroom.
