"have nothing but wonderful things to say about Julie, Rick, and their team of passionately meticulous cleaners. I came to work for Julie through a prayer and a need. When I met Julie, I was working at a gas station parttime and as an Uber at night. I was struggling to maintain a consistent position to get custody of my children and to build a consistent life for them. Julie walked in one day and thought to give me her card so I could come work for her, but didn't then and left. Days later, as God would have it, I ended up having Julie and Rick as Uber clients. Throughout our ride together we came to the topic of my looking for a stable job. Just then, Julie offered me a job. I had told her of how I had given up on cleaning and how Molly Maid rejected me because they thought I was untrainable. Her reply was astonishing, " I don't give up on people. If you are willing to work I will teach you." And just like that, I started working with Julie. Throughout my time there, people thought I would quit or I wouldn't make the cut. The days were long and it seemed as though maybe cleaning wasn't meant for me. But day in and day out I went and Julie believed in me.To me, Julie was more than employer, she was a friend and an inspiration. She loves all her employees and all of her clients. I'd seen her happy, I'd seen her stressed, I'd seen her hold it all together when her house burned down. But each and every day she was there for us. She saw me gain custody of my kids, she saw me rejoice when I could afford to put them in a decent daycare. I looked up to her. She knew I never wanted to lead anyone but somehow she always found a way to push me out of my comfort zone and make my skills grow. I knew in the last days I worked there, God was putting it on my heart to start my own company. For weeks I pushed the thought out of my head. I thought to myself, "I don't want to lead anyone, I see what Julie goes through to do it." But I was deeply saddened when it came time for me to leave. I had learned something from everyone there. I was a floater and had the chance to work with each person. I had heard all their stories. We were more than just a company, we were a family. But, as God would have it, it was time for me to grow again. Julie had taught me the definition of quality cleaning, quality customer service, and quality team work. With those skills, it was time for me to start something of my own. To this day, I still send potential employees to work with her that I know will grow and learn from her. And, if i know of a client where I cannot feasibly meet all of their needs, I send them to Julie because I know they are in good hands. Take care and God bless."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who cleans area rugs?

Like your carpets, area rugs should ideally be cleaned at least once a year to remove dust and dirt and help them last longer. In general, carpet cleaning professionals also clean area rugs. Some rug cleaners bring their cleaning equipment to your home, while others remove your area rugs and clean them at their facilities. Either way, the rug should be cleaned with the solution most appropriate to its specific fabric and construction. It should also be completely dry before you return it to the floor.

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 a rug?

Area rugs are typically found in high-traffic areas of the home, like hallways and entryways, so they collect more dirt and stains than simple vacuuming can handle. Similar to carpet cleaning, professionals can come to your home to deep-clean your area rugs. The national average cost for rug cleaning ranges from $80 to $120, but may be higher or lower depending on the rug’s size and fiber type. Rug cleaners generally charge by the square foot; for example, a standard 8-foot by 10-foot rug costs an average of $100 to clean. Natural fiber rugs, such as wool or silk, are usually more expensive to have cleaned than synthetic rugs. A carpeting cleaning company may charge on average $1.50 per square foot to clean a synthetic rug, $2 per square foot for a wool rug, and $3 per square foot for a silk rug. Some delicate rugs need to be washed by hand, which increases the price. Carpet cleaning companies often offer additional services, such as removing odors or applying moth deterrent, which can add 20 cents to 25 cents per square foot.

How much does it cost to clean a carpet?

Carpet cleaning costs vary depending on the type of cleaning, such as steam cleaning, and whether there are any stains that require special treatment. The main cost factors are the square footage of the carpet and the material it’s made from. The national average carpet cleaning price ranges from $100 to $130 for a typical suburban home, but steam cleaning prices start at an average of $120. In general, professional carpet cleaning ranges from an average of 20 cents to 50 cents per square foot, depending on where you live. Many companies have a minimum fee or room requirement — such as two rooms for an average of $40 each — and will charge more to clean carpeted stairs or a second floor. Finally, the carpet fiber type, density and pile will also affect the cost of cleaning; man-made fibers are stain-resistant and easier to clean, while wool carpeting is sensitive to water and requires more care.

What does carpet cleaning cost?

National average carpet cleaning prices range between $100 and $130. Carpet cleaning prices depend on how many square feet of carpet you want cleaned, how many rooms in one house or building will be cleaned, how stained your carpet is, how much the carpet cleaning company charges, your ZIP code, and the type of carpet you have. Cost per square foot can range from 20 cents to $1 or more, based on the above variables. Synthetic carpets are typically the least expensive to clean; natural fibers like wool cost more, as they require more care and attention, as well as more drying time. Excessive stains, challenging locations such as stairs, and accessibility also factor into your carpet cleaning price. Companies may charge a minimum service fee for cleaning a small carpet to cover their business expenses (paying employees, transporting the special equipment to your home). If your pet has repeatedly saturated the carpet with urine or if the fibers are extremely matted down, it may make more sense to completely replace your carpet than to continue to have it cleaned.
