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.

Excellent response to any and all my questions and rescheduling requests. The person who came to clean the carpet ( Manny ) was just an amazing person. Extremely polite and so good to talk to. Honestly, its so refreshing to see people like Manny now a days. He did an amazing work. Overall, very happy with the experience on Thumbtack and with Alpha Carpet Cleaning company.

Gennaro was a great Carpet cleaner. We had multiple issues with allowing him access to our place, having the power turned on, and access to running water because we had already moved from the premises and this was the last step in us receiving our security deposit. In spite of it all, Gennaro made several attempts to complete the job, and made several trips to the house to seek out alternative water and power sources. In the end, he did a great job and most importantly, the carpet was very clean at a very fair cost. If we lived in the area, and needed a carpet cleaner we would use him again.

He did a great job at cleaning our (forgot how many years) old carpet. For the second appointment, he even cleaned our stairs for free. We will definitely work with him again.

Anthony did a thorough and careful job on my carpet. He was organized and methodical in his cleaning, working hard on the stains and he even took time to carefully clean where the carpet tucks under the toe kick at the bottom of the walls. That REALLY impressed me. He was polite, friendly and explained what and why he did something. I could only pick 3 of the 5 good things above but they all apply. Kenny replied to me very soon after I contacted him. He made it easy to get a quote and book an appointment.

Matthew did an incredible job with my carpets.I had three sets of stairs, a hallway, a living room, and three bedrooms. The carpets had not been cleaned in seven years. He took incredible care going over the rooms multiple times to get the dirt out. He took his time and was determined to get them to look like new. He was thorough and neat. I also had two repairs. I had a buckle across the entire width of my bedroom. He spent an hour stretching it and it looks perfect! I also had a hole in a step in the front foyer, (a very visible location), where the dog had chewed threw it. Matthew took a piece from the back of my closet and completely closed the hole up! He was equally as personable as he was professional. I will hire him every year from now on. My carpets look great!
