Your burning questions: answered

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.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a professional carpet cleaner during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Set up a virtual appointment to discuss the scope of work. Conducting the consultation over video conference or phone call will ensure that you remain within the CDC's social distancing guidelines

Start by messaging a professional steam cleaner or carpet cleaner near you, and ask them if they would be willing to talk by phone or video call. Be sure to ask them how they handle payments and what precautions they have in place to keep you and your household safe. 

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.

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.

They came and cleaned all our flooring before we moved into our new house. The carpets and tile looked great, and the price was reasonable for such large areas.

Cleaned the carpet in a rental property (3 rooms and a set of stairs). Justin did a great job and even got out spots that didn't come out with the initial cleaning. The stairs and high traffic areas look great!

Rich's service went far above and beyond. The carpets, which I thought needed to be replaced after all the damage from our dogs, are now soft, plush, clean, and feel like new! I am so happy with the service! He was prompt, very nice, and got the job done quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Rich's Carpet Cleaning to anyone looking for high-quality service and great results!

They did a good job, my carpet looks and feels very clean. They were very professional. I had a few stains that were in desperate need of cleaning and after a few weeks the stains have not returned. I am very pleased with the service they provided.

Joel was quick to respond and came out to my house in just a couple days. They cleaned carpet in 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a couple hallways and stairs. They cleaned the tile in one bathroom and stretched the carpet in one of the living rooms. He paid attention to the details that I didn't even notice and was able to remove all stains that had built up over years...including paint! The tile looks brand new. He did all of this within 2 hours and the price was very reasonable! Very happy customer!!

Was very professional, friendly, and affordable. Still waiting for the carpet to dry, but it looks so much better than it did. The previous owners of our new house had a large dog and the entire house smelled strongly of dog. He recommended a sterilizing treatment, rather than the much more expensive pet treatment, and already the smell has mostly gone! We’ll definitely be calling him the next time our carpet needs cleaned.

This was my first experience with Thumbtack, Chris was one of the very first responses we received. His response was personal and answered our specific questions. From the time we contacted him, to when our carpets were completed was less than 5 hours. He met us at our Orem home within 10 minutes of contacting him through Thumbtack to give us a more thorough quote (we have carpet in our kitchen that needed some extra work along with 3 other rooms that needed cleaning). It was a huge relief to have the carpets cleaned so quickly and efficiently--they look great! Chris was very friendly and professional. When I met one of his employees later who was helping Chris to complete the job I was also impressed with how kind and professional his employee was as well. Overall, we had a great experience with My Guy Home Services. We were grateful for the promptness and efficiency they provided.

Rich did an awesome job. Although the carpets were “clean” when I moved in they still had major wear. He got sooo much gunk out! I’m very pleased with the results. 3 rooms with the brush done first only took him an hour and a half. Super nice guy too.

He asked for a price that was about 50 dollars more than what he originally said just right when he got into our home. And I had to look up our chat history to tell him what the originally agreed deal was. He did a good job, but i wouldn't say excellent cuz there wasn't a huge difference after he cleaned our carpet.

Rich hasn't actually cleaned the agreed an carpets yet - but I am so impressed with his easy going, yet confident personality - and his eager to please good attitude that I thought i would let those looking to give him a shot - he agreed to clean my mother in laws carpets (where we lived) and moved from and do it on her timeframe (which could be tough) - and agreed to do exactly what I asked for - without adding on fees for a few extra feet here, or a landing there, or 3-4$ a stair - he quoted me a fair (better than everyone else) price based on what I asked for - and wasn't smug or full of entitlement like the other quotes you will get. So many people will try to "guilt you into using their service" - Rich simply quoted the price, laid out the facts of why he was the best and invited me to do my own research. He actually uses a "Rotovac" which cleans so much better than a regular wand. It takes him a little longer - but he gets out any stain for no extra charge and isn't a baby about putting in some hard work (unlike the other people I got quotes from.) I would personally only get cleaning from a high temp a truck mounted system. Anyways looking forward to adding to the review after he and my mother in law agree on a date to clean!

Great deal!! I was impressed by his experience and knowledge! He broke things down for me as a first time home owner so it was easy to understand the physics of his cleaning as opposed to what other lower quality services include. All done within a few hours, really responsive, especially grateful he responded quickly when we reached out so we were able to get the job so quickly. Carpets look and smell great, great value!
