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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Jameson came to clean our carpet in the bedrooms and loft. This is where the kids spend most of their time and it gets pretty dirty! Jameson responded quickly when I posted my project in Thumbtack. He was very flexible about when he could come do the job and worked around our changing schedule. The carpets came out beautifully clean and Jameson was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him!

The technician was knowledgeable and friendly. He did an amazing job cleaning my very dirty carpets. I love that their products are environment and pet friendly and that they donate a portion of their proceeds to animal shelters. I would definitely hire Power Pup Clean again.

Very nice people and you could tell they really care about their customers. They were unbelievably fast and the work looked amazing. They cleaned 7 spaces for me and the carpet looks brand new. The fur in the carpet is no longer a problem and the house smells significantly better. Very good job and great customer service. Pricing was fair too, totally worth it.

Antwan did a great job at our residence. We have young boys and dogs that really thrash our carpet and we were surprised at how clean the carpet looked after he was finished. There were a couple dark, colored stains that couldn't be completely removed, but were hardly noticeable after. Antwan arrived on time and was very friendly. I highly recommend him!

Anthony did great job, thank you! Our main carpet issue was pet hair and pet smell. Today is our day two after cleaning, pet hair are gone and smell is getting it way out. Definitely recommend.

I have a very busy work schedule, and never leave online reviews, but my experience with Power Pup Clean was truly exceptional and they deserve to be commended. Mike was able to schedule me last minute and the technicians arrived right on time, thoroughly explained the options available to me as well as their recommendations. Super friendly and even gave my pups a treat! They are true professionals and extremely knowledgeable about carpet cleaning. All costs were disclosed upfront which I signed off on before the job, so they were very transparent about pricing and expectations. Bc of the business I run, my time is precious so I was very appreciative of and amazed at how quickly they were able to complete the job. I was very impressed overall and the results speak for themselves. All stubborn pet stains that other companies couldn't remove for years, are now non existent and the carpets dried very quickly. Also, my house smells so fresh and clean! I suffer from seasonal allergies and it's so much easier to breathe indoors now. This is a top notch, quality cleaning company. It wasn't the cheapest quote I got, but this was worth every penny and then some if you are truly looking for the deepest clean and sanitization of your floors. Thanks thumbtack for helping me find my "go to" carpet cleaner!! And thank you Power Pup for saving my carpets and making them look brand new again! I look forward to doing business with you in the near future.

Anthony was great to work with. We plan on using him to do all of our annual carpet cleanings! He we super responsive to messages, was on time, did a great job (and even clean an area rug for no extra charge), and on top of it all was a reasonable price! Would refer him to friends and family (actually am sending his contact info over to a family member tonight)!

I hired Power Pup last minute before having weekend guests. I paid extra for an area rug to be cleaned and pet treatment. The job was done very poorly and the area rug wasn't cleaned entirely or moved to clean the carpet underneath it. They came out to redo the job, more efficiently the first time but didn't clean the area rug once again. They did credit my account for the cost of the area rug. Very inconvenient to make myself available on two separate occasions for the 3 hour appointment window especially to be disappointed with the job.

These guys were able to fit me in last minute and did an excellent job of cleaning up my carpet, which was in pretty bad shape, thanks to my husband and kids and their many spilled drinks and food stains. Very impressed with their customer service, and the gentleman who came to our house was very friendly

Marcus was here this morning & cleaned our carpet & area rugs - what a beautiful job! We thought we would have to replace at least the beige, but all the pet stains & coffee spills have disappeared, & the urine odor has been completely removed as well! I love that our pets are safe with the products they used, & look forward to the next section of our home being cleaned! Terrific job, & Marcus is definitely on top of the challenge!
