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.

Brent was fantastic!! The playroom and daughter’s carpet had lots of patches of slime/glue and dye on them..had had them cleaned twice already and still marks could be seen. Brent came out at short notice and cleaned the carpets perfectly!!! They looked like new. To top it all he was the best price of all the carpet cleaners! I would highly recommend him.

This was an awesome experience. I have never been more impressed with a service... ever! My carpets look fantastic. I had multiple spots on my carpet and my house smelled smokey and just not clean, I did not realize this of course until the smell was gone!!! He is professional and kind which is a rare find. I will use him and will refer anyone that asks to him for carpet cleaning.

They were friendly and did what they said they were going to do. Our carpet looks pretty good considering it had never been professionally cleaned in ten years.

Keith, was so professional and on time. I had to reschedule and he nade it so easy for me to do. He came with his helper and they moved so quickly and efficiently through my rooms. They worked magic on my old carpet. My house was left smelling and looking so clean and fresh. The value of his service well exceeded the price. If you need your carpets cleaned right then you need Keith.

I hired trey to shampoo my carpet at both of my houses. Omg. I've never met a guy soooo nice. He is just a best person in the world he cleaned my carpet so good and clean and smells good, he gave me an affordable rate, came on time and he has the best personality. I get so scared when I meet people like trey. I get scared because there are so many bad people out there and will try to take advantage of him he is just sooo nice .

We moved into a new place and noticed dog odor in 2 bedrooms. We were able to book him instantly and came to our house on the same day. Instead of steam clean, which we requested, he suggested dry cleaning. The odor has gone substantially and carpet is more fluffy (?) now. Only feedback is it would have been great if we receive the price/quote upfront when I booked him.

My husband and I were already talking about replacing the carpeting upstairs because we thought they were hopeless but he said let's try to have it cleaned first and then see. The worst stains and smell were in my daughter's room because of our dogs and honestly i was thinking that nothing could be done anymore to save it ( is thaaattt bad!🤦🏻‍♀️) but thanks to Keith and his companion, they were able to clean it and get rid of the horrible smell! It smells so fresh and clean i couldn't believe it! I'll just let these pictures do the talking 🙂👍.
