Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much is carpet cleaning in Dallas?

Dallas carpet cleaners may have a starting cost that range anywhere from $40 to $100. Your final price will depend on how many rooms you need cleaned, the type of stains and carpeting you have, and whether your home has carpeted stairs.

The best way to figure out how much you’ll pay is to contact several highly rated carpet cleaners in Dallas. Ask them to provide a quote and compare their estimates. A good carpet cleaner will ask you lots of questions to determine the most accurate price.

Please note: All cost estimates are accurate at the time of writing and are subject to change. For the most accurate, up-to-date cost estimates for your specific project, get free estimates from pros near you.

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.

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.

They did a good job with the carpets. We did feel that the carpets weren’t as clean as we expected specially for premium price and deep cleaning package quoted to us. The carpets look better but require further cleaning on our end. Overall job done but was expecting better.

The carpet cleaning service itself was excellent. Unfortunately he had not read the request carefully and thought it was for general cleaning, and so had to schedule a 2nd appointment in the afternoon to come back with the carpet cleaning equipment. Very friendly and efficient, easy communication with text.

Keith and his crew member were on time at 7:45am. They finished a 3 bedroom + closet carpet cleaning in 45 minutes. The carpets are very clean, they look and smell great. Keith helped me move a couple pieces of furniture and he also suggested a better method of cleaning our white carpets. On top of great service, Keith is friendly and easy to work with. Thanks!

I requested a carpet cleaning service late Wednesday evening for the following day at noon. He was quick to reply that evening. There was a miscommunication and he handled it like a true professional. I would definitely be calling him for further carpet cleanings.
