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.

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.

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.

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.

Valley Carpet Cleaning offered a great quote for cleaning one room with a persistent pet odor problem. They responded within an hour of posting on Thumbtack, then when I called them the next day ... they came that afternoon. They did a two-step process and the carpet is completely odor free. Highly recommended!

Alex was very professional and did a great job cleaning my carpet. I bought a new home that the previous owner had a cat and I needed the carpet to be clean and get rid of the animal odor. Alex was able to do the job which I'm very satisfied with the work that was done at my house. I highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a job well done. Vong

Jess did an outstanding job. I had my carpets cleaned and my tile floor cleaned and sealed. My tile floor looks brand new. My husband said it was the best money we have spent and should have done it a long time ago. Jess was excellent to work with. Great communication and commitment to getting it done right. I have an older dog who has more accidents than I would like and Jess made my carpets look and smell really good. i would definitely recommend Jess to all my family and friends who are needing their carpets or tile cleaned. He will be my go to for any future cleanings. Thank you so much for a job well done.

Steve was so easy to work with, and did an amazing job on our carpets. We've been in our house for nearly 6 years and never had the carpets professionally cleaned (gasp!!) and when our daughter came early 2.5 years ago, we gave up on cleaning up carpet stains and spills. With two cats and a dog, the number of stains wasn't insignificant! I expected Steve to come in and tell me that we should just burn the house down, but he was really reassuring and said there was no need for shame. He honored his Thumbtack quote--we discussed on the phone the fact that with Thumbtack, a service provider really goes in blind, but he assured me that he really doesn't want to be one of those service providers that quotes one number and then comes in and raises his quote and tacks on extras. He honored that (though I would not have begrudged him an increase after seeing my carpets and the size of one of my rooms). I do try to make things easier for people coming to work on our home, so I'd pre-vacuumed and moved the few pieces of furniture I wanted to have cleaned under myself. My carpets look amazing. I didn't think it could be done. He's proud of his truck-mounted system, and rightly so. I also felt great about the fact that the detergent he uses is biodegradable.

I am so happy with the cleaning ProClean did for us today! We had heavily stained carpet including food, cat pee, and makeup and it all looks awesome. The cat pee was treated with enzymes and so far, it seems like it actually worked, which is a surprise to me since I have had cat pee stains treated before without as much success. Most of the stains were from before we moved into our home, so we had no idea our carpets would look this great! It's amazing, they really look fantastic. Prompt, punctual, friendly, professional, great work for the value, awesome. Thank you!
