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.

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.

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.

Mr. Walker was able to come the very next day that I booked the appointment and cleaned the carpet at my father's house. It was an absolute mess and I needed it cleaned quickly. My father is in bad health and without being graphic, the carpet was severely stained and unsanitary. He cleaned it so well and removed all of the stains. This carpet is very old and does have old stains that never will come out that isn't his fault and I didn't expect any miracles with those. Bottom line is, it looks like a million dollars compared to what it did and has been completely sanitized. I never thought this old carpet would look like this again. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for carpet cleaning. Thank you so much Mr. Walker!!

I was really glad to find this company to clean my carpets upon move out. The cleaner arrived on time and got working right away. I had a few stains and spots that looked much better after cleaning. In the end, I saved a lot of money instead of paying my apartment to clean the carpets. The prices were very reasonable and I would use them again, if needed.

I had my carpets done in my apartment by Just A Touch Services and they provided excellet, time-efficient and knowledgable service! Easy going brothers who made it easy to talk to personally and as well as explaining what they do, how they do it and why. It was nice to know what exactly they were putting down and how they go about cleaning specific to your carpet! Their appointment booking and pricing is also felxable and remarkably reasonable! I highly reccomend their work and if needed carpet cleaning again they would be my first choice!

S and L did a wonderful job on my carpets. I have two dogs and a lot of traffic in my house. My carpets look very clean and smell fresh. He was prompt, polite, and efficient. All of my questions were answered. He even showed me how clean he could get the grout in my tile floors if I chose to have it done in the future. I will definitely call S and L cleaning services again.

Kevin saved the day! I had arranged for a different carpet cleaning company to clean carpets at my business during some downtime. That guy said he didn't have time, and that I would have to call the main number to reschedule. Well, no one ever answered my calls! So, I was left with furniture stacked and moved, but no carpet cleaning done. I decided to find another company. I found Kevin through Thumbtack. He provided a quote, we emailed details back and forth, and he came the very next morning! He was thorough and conscientious. Thanks Kevin for allowing me to get this task completed!

Carpet cleaning was efficient, effective, and well-priced. He was even able to remove stains that were already on the carpet when we moved in, and a stain that we had gotten on the carpet was able to be removed, too. Due to our timeline of when we were moving out of state, we needed a certain date & time for an appointment and were able to be accommodated. This was my first time to use Thumbtack, and it was a great experience.
