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.

The bedroom carpeting was not cleaned well. There were items on the floor that were not picked up before or after cleaning. The steps and the riser between each step was not cleaned well. It did not appear the stains were treated, maybe cleaned over but not treated.

Illasha Gamble and here husband did great. The carpet was very clean after they were done. They are very nice people. My only tip is that they could have called on the cleaning day to remind me about the appointment.

I hired this company to clean one bedroom and a closet. They were very nice and polite, the employee showed up about 20 minutes late to our appt. He mentioned that there were some significant stains on the carpet, which was the truth, I was potty training a puppy at the time. I was moving out of the condo and knew that it needed to be professionally cleaned. The carpets were cleaned but it was unsatisfactory according to my landlord. I saw the work the day of but when he arrived a few days later, he said that the smell was overwelming from the cleaning solution that was used and there was clumps of what I could assume was dog hair left throughout the room. I ended up having to pay another company to come and clean after them. He said that after the other company cleaned the carpet that the smell was completely gone and he could not see the stains anymore. I think if the stains would not have been there then I and my landlord would be satisfied, but for tough stains, I would use another company.

We had to cancel our scheduled carpet cleaning because of a family emergency. Marlon has been so gracious to put this on hold until we can reschedule. Looking forward to working with him soon.

Two very nice young men came to my house to clean carpets. They did a good job. What could be better is a stain in my room that wasn't pretreated. I would hire Marlin and Clint again.

Marlon is a very nice and professional person. Was very flexible with appointment times. We really thought we were going to have to replace our carpet until he cleaned them. I would definetly recommend him!!

I'd be embarrassed to call myself a carpet cleaner with the results they produced. All the stains were barely touched. I had to go out and rent a cleaner from Lowe's (the same exact one that A Z used) and I was able to clean the carpet to my satisfaction. You ought to give me my money back! In response to you: Rude to your technician how? Because the stains did not come out, even though __I__ was able to get them out myself? I was quoted $200 to clean the house with a $20 discount and he had the nerve to charge me an extra $30 for another room (Which is part of the house!). I would never recommend your company to anyone. If I can do a better job myself with the same equipment, who wouldn't?

Company texted 45 mins before the actual appointment to reach due to their mainentance guy being unavailable. I dont know what a maintenance person has to do with carpet cleaning but ok. Appointment was set for the next day, company left after Appointment time so I just cancelled.

Know your customer needs and listen to them. I had to cancel and was planning to reschedule with A-Z however due to phone interactions with Marlon I changed my mind. First didn't cancel my appt., secondly tried to use pressure salesman tactic to book another appointment and thirdly was rude when I reminded him of cancellation after I received text to confirm carpet cleaning at 9AM next day. I followed up with text to cancel and took my business elsewhere.
