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.

Not only was Allan able to come at short notice, he was early for the appointment and did a terrific job cleaning our carpet. This was a rental apartment that we were vacating, and the carpet looks almost new, so we can now get our deposit back! Must give highest recommendation to Magic Carpet & Cleaning Service.

Allen with Magic Carpet & Cleaning Services did a great job cleaning our carpets. They hadn't been done in a few years, and they looked incredible when he was done. Allen showed up on time and did a great job explaining the whole cleaning process. The job was priced right and it was a great value for the work preformed. I will be using them again in the future. Thanks a lot!

I would definitely recommend giving this company a try if you need carpets cleaned. I was dealt with very light colored carpets in the home I recently purchased and have a dog. Well she made a few accidents and I could not get them out. Needless to say they are all gone now and my carpets smell great. Thank you Allan!

Allan did an outstanding job with our home. When my neighbors saw his work, two of them called and had carpets done same day with two additional estimates as well. Thank you Allan for your professionalism and quality of work. This will be the only carpet cleaning service I will use.

Vendor came out at the time promised and cleaned the carpet. Was expecting to see a commercial sized machine but vendor used a smaller, mobile unit. Overall satisfied with the value of the services received.

Found T&C Cleaning via Thumbtack. I was contacted immediately by Christina, we set a date and she showed up on time. My neighbor told me she did an excellent job on the carpets (move-out) and even hired her to do her carpets at a later date. Christina is a very friendly and funny person who just really enjoys what she does to help people and provide a great service. I would certainly use her again and recommend you do as well.

Hired American Pure Clean after getting several quotes on Thumbtack. Steven arrived on time and completed the work in a timely fashion. I really had no idea my carpet could look this good again. So glad I did it, and am having APC back the first of the year. Good hire, for sure!

To be honest this could've been way better. This service took way longer than expected. The lady came at 8:25am and didn't leave until 4:05pm. For that amount of time spent in my house, it should've been spotless. A lot of stuff was not wiped down (dressers, end tables, part of kitchen counters). None of the dressers were even touched. Stuff was still in the same place I left it and dust in top. My computer desk was half wiped down. Ceiling fans in two rooms and living room where not touched. None of the stairs were sweep nor vacuum (1 set of stairs). None of the bathrooms were moped. My master shower was cleaned with some white stuff that is hard to come off my stainless steel shower head and its all on my wall. She used my disinfectant spray (for what I don't know) and carpet powder without asking. Then just left the powder in the floor. FYI...You supposed to vacuum it up. None of the beds were touched / made up. She left 4 dishes in the sink unwashed. The downstairs 1/2 bathroom wasn't cleaned. Neither was my living room. When I told Shawna about it all she could offer me was to come back out and fix it. I don't want anyone to come back because for that amount of time it should've been done right the first time. I'll never use this service again.
