Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Can I use digital payments to pay for professional carpet cleaning?

It’s common for professional carpet cleaners to accept digital payments such as Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay, Zelle, PayPal and others. The current COVID-19 pandemic is quickly encouraging other companies to digitally transform as well. Make sure the carpet cleaner you hire will accept a digital payment instead of cash or check, and come up with a strategy for complying with social distancing regulations.

Compare carpet cleaners near you to see which types of payments they accept.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

How often should carpets be steam cleaned?

Dirty carpets can be unhealthy for the people living in the home, particularly those who have allergies, so it’s important to have them cleaned regularly; simply vacuuming once or twice a week isn’t enough. Carpet cleaning should be done by a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year to remove grime and help extend the life of your carpet. Most carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning, which penetrates deep into the carpet fibers and lifts out both dirt and the pollutants that get tracked inside. Steam cleaning also removes most of the moisture, so carpets dry quickly enough for homeowners to resume using them the same day. Between professional carpet cleanings, your carpet may need an emergency spot cleaning. Pet accidents, food or drink spills, and more can often be effectively cleaned with some water and a drop of white vinegar, although many cleaners will also make house calls for smaller spills and hard-to-clean spots like wine or grease stains.

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

Whether your pet had an accident, the party got too wild, or your kids can’t control their juice boxes — we all need rug cleaning from time to time. In fact, even if you don’t have a spill or spot, it’s wise to have your area rug cleaned approximately once a year to keep the rug fibers in good health. In general, rug cleaning prices depend on the square footage of the rug, what the rug is made of, whether any repairs are needed, and whether you require the pro to travel to your location or provide pickup and drop-off services. Nationally, average area rug cleaning prices range from $80 to $120.

Wool and silk area rugs typically cost more to clean than rugs made from synthetic fibers because the more delicate materials take more care and may require specialized cleaning fluids. For example, a synthetic rug may cost $1.50 per square foot to clean; a wool, cotton, or chiffon rug could be $2 per square foot; and a silk or Navajo wool rug could cost $3 per square foot. The two most common rug cleaning methods are steam and chemical cleaning. The costs for the two methods are often the same, although a steam-cleaned rug will take longer to dry due to the moisture. If your area rug needs odor removal, moth deterrent, or hand washing, there will be additional charges.

fast and efficient, carpet looks much better than it did, but our carpet was filthy! Less dust since the duct cleaning, very pleased with that!

Oscar was very thorough in his work. We had stains that needed to be worked on and our carpet needed a good thorough cleaning. I didn't want to overspend as we are planning to replace the carpet in the next 6 months. He also cleaned a couch and loveseat and they looked so fresh after he was done. Our carpet wasn't left with a wet smell after (as we have had in the past with other cleaners). We will definitely be hiring Oscar again! Thank you!

Oscar came to my rental to clean some very dirty carpet. I thought I was going to have to replace it. He was able to get a majority of the stains out (including some paint) that I didn’t think would come out. I know it took him longer than he thought because he put in so much extra effort to get the stains out. The stains he was not able to completely remove were greatly diminished to the point that you had to look hard to see them . He saved me a lot of money by not having to replace the carpet. I would absolutely recommend Master Carpet Cleaning. I was beyond thrilled!

They did an amazing job and they were quick too! They talked to us about the prices and we were able to choose our services carefully. Our carpets were left wonderfully clean afterwards! Will definitely want to hire them again in the future :)

The person that came was very friendly. He explained the how the price would have to be adjusted for the stains that we had in our house and the additional cost of the pet treatment. He worked with us and our budget and we have super clean carpets now!

I looked for a highly rated cleaner and got exactly what I was looking for! Rich was friendly, efficient, positive, and explained what would be the best for my carpet. He even told me one particular carpet I thought could not be saved, would look good again. He was right! He worked very hard and I could not have expected more. It was even his birthday. Sorry Rich. I will definitely call him again and I have some upholstery I'm looking to get done also. Great experience!

WOWZA!!! I have had about 3 different carpet cleaning companies throughout the years none of them were ever worth calling back. However, I will DEFINITELY be calling you guys again!!! I was a first time client but I'm a lifelong client now!!! THANK YOU!! and Oscar was a wonderful technician!!! He did an outstanding job!!!
Thumbtack Customer
He was very accommodating with all of the scheduling changes that we made. It was also VERY VERY nice of him to help us move our washer and dryer out of the garage and into the laundry room. That was above and beyond!! The only reason for not giving 5 stars is because the front of our stairs didn't get cleaned very well and are still very dirty. Overall great work. He was able to get stains out of the carpet and it looks good. I would recommend him.
