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.

First, I would think it would be prudent to vacuum the carpet first before cleaning. That did not happen. Next, I guess I was led to believe that Mighty Clean could use either hot steam or dry clean methods to clean my carpet. Dana said he would use the steam method to clean my carpet. Actually this is the only equipment he had on his truck i.e. he was not prepared to use a dry cleaning method. So, although the carpet seems clean after his steam method, it was really saturated and wet beyond what I wanted and took a long time to dry out. Will look elsewhere when I need my carpet cleaned in the future and make sure it is a dry method. Also, I question the effectiveness of his "sanitising spray." It was a lemon smell that nearly gagged me. I've used other operators who list on thumbtack and have been satisfied which is why I engaged Mighty Clean.

We made an informal appointment over the phone followed by an e-mail to confirm. The morning of our scheduled carpet cleaning, he did not show up nor did he answer his phone. Very unprofessional and disorganized. I do not recommend this company to anyone in need of a carpet cleaning.

Cleaned carpet in 3 hrs, one area was really high traffic, pet hair, but Caleb did excellent job. Great price. Looks new.

We were very pleased with how our carpet came out very clean. The carpet had not been cleaned for at lest 15 years. He worked for 4 hours trying to get out all the dog and other stains. I was pleased to see he did not soak the carpet as the big companies do most of the time causing meldrew. I understand he's been cleaning carpet for many years and decided to start up his own business. I would highly recommend him. I like where the owner comes out to do the cleaning instead of hired workers, they take more pride in their work. And to boot he was much cheaper then the A+ rated companies. I would rate him A+ if he's not already. I'm so glad I check out thumtack and he responded. God bless your business Mr. Caleb Custer.

David was awesome. Got a very questionable carpet clean. The price was right, he was quick and left no mess. On top of that he was a good guy. I will use him again.

Caleb came to clean all the carpeting throughout my house and power wash the patio in my back yard. I was thrilled with the results, and his pricing was more than fair. Given that I have 2 dogs and some carpets that hadn't been cleaned in years, I was surprised to see how well they actually turned out. I would highly recommend Caleb and will likely use him again for future needs.

Mighty Clean did a wonderful job. Was here on time, worked quickly, and the carpet looks great. I will use him again for sure and probably write him into my rental contracts once we start renting this home. Well done!
