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.

We are very pleased with the carpet cleaning results. Additionally, they pulled up the carpet to remove wiring for surround sound from previous owner and reattached the carpet. Would definitely recommend Low Country Carpet Care!

Just had my carpets cleaned by Steam Plus, and I want to say they all look brand new! Both gentleman were friendly and very professional, not to mention they were on time! Their prices were far lower than other quotes I had received and the final product was better than any other carpet cleaners I had used in the past. Highly recommend Steam Plus.

We were very pleased with the prompt service call! They were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional! We had 3 bedroom carpets cleaned, a sofa and a chair in a beach condo rental which get slot of wear and tear. The sofa and chair looked practically new! Carpet needs to be replaced next year, but the expert cleaning bought is another year of use. I will definitely call them again!!

My carpet looks amazing! I've had the carpet cleaned before by other local options and never has it looked this good! The staff was friendly, professional, and incredibly thorough - they even got old Kool-Aid stains out of my carpet! The price was exactly as agreed upon and the workmanship impressive. The entire process took much less than I thought it would thanks to their hardworking efficiency. I would definitely use them again AND plan on recommending then to everyone I know.

From the time I requested bids from carpet cleaners through the finished product, MWM was a pleasure to work with. The company was very responsive, answered my questions in a punctual fashion and let us know when they were running behind by 15 minutes. They explained that Berber carpet does get wear patterns ingrained that makes it look like it is stained. I have posted before and after pictures of how one room’s stains disappeared after the cleaning. I would definitely use MWM again.

Wayne did an excellent job cleaning the carpets in my condo! He was super friendly, and very accommodating. I felt he gave us a great price and did not overcharge us (compared to a lot of other quotes that I saw- which is why he got a bigger tip!). He met me the morning I called and got started right away. I would absolutely recommend Wayne to anyone looking to have their carpet/tile cleaned, and I will definitely be calling him again!

Everything about my carpet cleaning services with MWM was top notch and professional. They worked me in at the last possible minute, even arrived early, and did a fantastic job. Excellent price and more than worth it. I will never use another company again. I am also going to be using them for my tile as well.

MWM Services did an excellent job cleaning my carpets. They were very fast and professional. My technician was very nice and did a great job. I will definitely only be using them for now on. The only thing I could come plain about was hat he was an hour late which I didn't like but I'm their defense the office did call me and notify me that the tech was running behind.

My entire experience with MWM services was wonderful. When I put out the search for a carpet cleaner via thumbtack, will contacted me quickly with a very reasonable offer. He was very prompt with responses and answered any questions and concerns I had. I was also working on a strict timeline and Will was able to meet my time restraints with no problem. I actually called the company the day before my scheduled appt time and asked to make it earlier. The very pleasant receptionist moved some things around in order to meet my request. On the day of the appt, Will (& his coworker) showed up right on time and were very polite and professional. They were quick and precise with the job. They were able to get out all of the stains in my rugs, even ones I thought impossible. They look like brand new rugs! I would absolutely recommend Will and MWM services to anyone looking for a professional and affordable carpet cleaning service.
