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.

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.

Art and his team did a remarkable job! These carpet were very, very heavily stained, smelled of dog and cigarettes. Not only did they do an excellent job at an unbelievable price, they arrived early on a Saturday. I highly recommend Gatewood Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning.

We were extremely pleased with Janz carpet cleaning. They had great communication setting up our appointment and following through until completion. The carpet looks great! We had a few pet stains which have disappeared! The quality and price were exactly what we were hoping for. We plan to have them come back to do another area of our home.

If you are looking for carpet or upholstery cleaning Easy Clean Maids should be your first choice. I was so impressed with Turail's responsiveness and professionalism. He is a true entrepreneur and takes pride in his work and his customer service. In addition to all that, he cleaned four rooms, a hallway, and stairs. My carpets are sparkling (which is no easy task!). I have two young kids and a lab. So you can only imagine what he had to deal with. My house looks and smells so clean. Also compared to the quotes I received at other companies he was quite competitive and worth every penny. Thank you again for such a pleasant experience. We'll be contacting again for sure!

Spencer Moore from Moore Cleaning Solutions is a professional. I needed the carpet, linoleum and tile cleaned in my office space. I interviewed 3 different contractors for my job and he was by far the most detail-oriented contractor. He took precise measurements of the floors I needed cleaned and provided a detailed quote breaking down the areas that needed cleaned, the square footage as well as the price. I was sure that everything was covered in the scope of the project. Spencer and his team worked off hours, so as not to disrupt my business. The results were amazing. The floors look fantastic. He was able to clean floors that I had thought were beyond repair. We were so happy with his work, we've elected to keep Moore's Cleaning Solutions as our daily office janitorial contractor. Spencer is easy to work with and is very willing to work within our budget. Spencer Moore recognizes that he isn't just in the business of cleaning floors - he is in the business of customer service. He takes detail notes, and follows up on his action items in a timely manner. He is a true delight to work with.

Spencer was amazing!!!!! He did such a wonderful job (carpets and sectional couch)- everything looks brand new!!! And he cost $500 less than other quotes I received!!! PLUS all safe for our puppy and kids because no chemicals left behind!! He even agreed last minute to clean 10 throw pillows and an area rug that I didn't realize were in need of some major TLC. My parents and in laws were all amazed and made me send them his contact info immediately. Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful job!!!
