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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Old City carpet cleaners
Noemi j.
Came out to clean both carpets in rooms. Came @ 9am was done before 10am. The fastest carpet cleaning guy, I’ve ever met. Carpet stinks like a old mop bucket, came the next day saying it’s the type of carpet I have and that he will try to clean it again and suck up all the water. Lol. Fast job, but carpet still F *^*** stinks. I don’t even think chemicals and anything that makes the carpet smell good good is being used. I’ve used baking soda in my carpet to get the smell out. Hopefully I can get someone to really clean my carpet the right way.

Spencer was excellent and well mannered, he arrived before his appointment time and got right to it. He also gave me helpful tips on how to keep the carpet clean throughout the year and was very honest when cleaning them. His equipment is state of the art and it worked beautifully on the carpet. I would definitely recommend Spencer and Moore Cleaning to clean your carpets. The carpets came out great

I used many carpet cleaners for the past 30yrs but none of them compared to 'Supreme Steamers'. My carpets are 20yrs old in good condition but had soil and stains. I never thought my carpets could ever look clean again, until Supreme cleaned my carpets, they did an excellent job and were so professional and a pleasure to work with. I will be using their services for additional cleaning. Give them a try I know you will be happy a customer. My review was based on my own experience and I truly do highly reccomend them!

I had a stain in our carpet from a water leak. I vacuumed it all up, used oxy clean, rented a carpet cleaner, did everything I could and the stain kept coming back. JANZ Carpet Cleaning came by and did one cleaning and it looked great. But then the stain came back. So he came back and did a 2nd cleaning at no extra charge, and it’s gone now! Very pleased and I highly recommend if you need your carpet cleaned (the other highly regarded pro on this site told me they wouldn’t be able to do it if I had already tried all those other things - so glad I found JANZ).

I needed carpets in a rental property cleaned fast, because I had a new tenant moving in earlier then planned. John called immediately after I put an order request in. He gave me a great price and did a great job cleaning my carpets. I would definitely recommend John and Speedy Carpet Kleen and will use him in the future.

It went very well. The carpet was feeling and smelling so much better after the cleaning. The tile was also grime free after the cleaning and had a bit of shine to it. Overall, a job well done.
