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.

Reviews for Greenville carpet cleaners
Thumbtack Customer
Wilmar and his mothrt Blanca came to my house and started right in to cleaning my carpets. They worked as a team and had my carpets cleaned within a hour and half. Wilmar didn't just steam clean the carpets, he pretreated the entire carpet area with a pretreatment and then used the steam cleaning process. He was able to lift stains out that other professional carpet cleaners said that they were embedded into the carpet fibers and couldn't never be lifted out. Great job Wilmar and Blanca, thanks.

Mike was great. He arrived a little early, ready to start cleaning my carpets right on time. He was very friendly and I felt comfortable leaving him in my new townhome. I left for work and he pulled the locked door shut behind him when he was done. My carpets were not very dirty to start with, but I wanted to move in knowing the carpets were clean and odor-free. He did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone!

Best price offered, great communication and response time, very professional. Best carpet cleaning service E-V-E-R!!! I've used Stanley Steamer and several other companies that claim they're the best, paying extra charges for "special" stain removers and treatments that they con you into getting once they arrive to inflate the bill, only to leave me with excuses about why they couldn't get out the mystery stains my kids left behind. Today, Anthony arrived on-time, took his time and really worked on removing every stain in my 4 bedroom home and finally getting out the stains left behind by 2 previous carpet cleaning companies...WOW!!! You will be my go-to for carpet cleaning in the future and I'll happily refer your services to everyone I know. Thank you for the awesome job!

Jerry was an extreme professional and worked so hard to make our home and carpet and stairs look and smell brand new. He worked without a break for 5 hours straight I can’t recommend him enough. He also offered to do a free air quality test and treatment with the carpet cleaning. He was on time, an extremely great value for the level of work he put in. I can’t say enough great things about him and his company!

He did such a great job cleaning my carpets! I lived in a two bedroom apartment with a two year old boy and I had a lot of spots in my dining room, but he removed all of them! My apartment looks better than it did when I moved in!

I appreciated that G Force was able to accommodate a schedule change within 24 hours. Cleaning of 4 bedroom home as completed within 90 minutes. I have had other carpet cleaners in who may use better products or have a better method, as two of the bedrooms felt not as clean as in the past (and these were guest rooms that have little to no traffic). Also, water was left on my hardwoods from the cleaning hoses and equipment. I would have appreciated either G Force putting mats down on non carpet areas prior to cleaning or cleaning up the mess they made prior to leaving. I was left having to mop up water off of my hardwoods right after G Force left. Also, not to the fault of G Force but for Thumbtack users to beware, even if you put notes in your Thumbtack request, the services may not see or get them. The individual from G Force thought he was cleaning 5 areas instead of 6 due to how the Thumbtack intake form is set up. I know I specifically added the 6th area to the end notes, but G Force was unaware of it. They honored the quotes rate, however users may want to verify prior to having their cleaner of choice come out.
