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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Newport News carpet cleaners
Ernest W.
Great carpet cleaning service. Tim was very nice.

S and L responded very quickly once I contacted him. We needed our carpets cleaned for our new home we just bought and we contemplated on whether or not we should get new carpets or just have the carpets professionally cleaned. Getting our carpets professionally cleaned was more affordable and S and L made our carpets look new. So it’s a win-win for me! Our 3 bedroom/hallway and carpeted stairway only took about 30 minutes to complete. I would highly recommend.

I just bought my first home and the prior owners had pets. I contemplated ripping up the carpet but the cost of having flooring done was not in my budget. Mo of S and L Cleaning responded to my inquiry immediately and was able to clean the carpets the same day. Excellent job. My carpets are clean and my house smells great!!!

S & L Cleaning Services was the first to respond to my request for information regarding a short notice carpet cleaning service. He was able to squeeze me in and answered all my questions in advance. On the day of, he showed up early and was finished MUCH faster than expected - but the quality did NOT suffer. He did an outstanding job and I highly recommend this company to anyone needing their carpets cleaned.

I hired J's Cleaning Services, LLC when I was moving out of a 4 bedroom house with carpets. After they were cleaned, they looked brand new. The company was very professional and personable.

I needed a professional cleaning done because I was moving out of an apartment. I had stains on the carpet because the dining room is carpeted and I have 3 children. None of the stains was removed & the carpet actually looked worst than it did before he started the cleaning. I had to call another service to come out the next day. The guy David got each and every stain out of the carpet. David did such a great job I had to tip him. I was totally in awe. I told David the type of machine that was used before and he let me know that that was the wrong machine to bring knowing the carpet had stains. In my opinion I basically got robbed without a gun!!!

Needed to schedule move out carpet cleaning within the week which we were able to do. Move did not go as planned so we needed to reschedule the appointment the morning of the appointment. Mo was very understanding and rescheduled the appointment. He called to let me know he was on the way. Mo was very professional, arrived on time, explained the process before he got started and as he cleaned the carpet. Worked was completed in a very reasonable amount of time and looked great. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

When I contacted Kevin about needing same-day service, he responded quickly and arrived soon thereafter. He was professional and did a great job cleaning the carpets and dining chair. He had to contend with heavy traffic stains and left our 3 rooms looking like new. Thank you Kevin!
