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.

Josefino came on time and did a great job cleaning the carpet. He took extra time cleaning the tough spots. I will hire Angel's Carpet in future and I definitely recommend Angel's Carpet Care.

My carpet is clean for daily but not good for my final inspection though. My pets stain was still there and we paid the replacement fee for the carpet. But he is a nice guy.

Frances did a fantastic job deep cleaning my house along with carpet cleaning. Initially she was to do only carpet cleaning, but when my deep cleaner cancelled last minute she agreed to do the deep cleaning as well in such short notice! She was very responsive to all my queries and also provided a very good value for money. She was punctual and spent a good amount of time getting to all the much-needed areas of the home and while cleaning she had even moved few heavy pices of furniture without asking for it. Totally recommend her!

It was the first time I have our carpet cleaned. Very surprised by the results! They are able to get rid of all the food/oil stain on my carpet! And the price is calculated beforehand so nothing unexpected. Great experience with the nice couple! Thank you for your hard work!

Kristen went over and above the job duties and did a fantastic job cleaning the carpet for the living room in my apartment. I'd hire her any day to get the job done.

It was a great experience working with Jose. We moved out of our house and had carpet cleaning. It was a old house and I guess old wooden structure underneath floor had some fractures & created a stain on the carpet, few days after cleaning. He came and took care of the stain immediately and without any question asked. Would highly recommend their Service. Just mindful of their time commitment. In our case they were 1.5 hour late. But they communicated as they were running late.

I needed a cleaning and pet treatment for the new owner. Since I didn't know if the new owner was replacing the carpet right away or not, I wanted to make sure it looked great and was clean for her. Jod did a great job of explaining the process and was in and out efficiently!!

Had an appointment to have my carpet clean today for the holidays at 5:30pm. The person who came to clean is not the person above, so was a bit surprised. The gentle man wanted to see the area to be cleaned first, then wanted to see my bathroom faucet. He said he had to check to make sure that the equipment will fit my faucet. So he went and came back and although the piece seemed to fit, he said that it didn't and therefore; couldn't do the job. He said that their equipment doesn't work with new apartments. Now have no way of having my carpet cleaned a day before Christmas. Disappointed!

He did excellent work and it was a fair price. I was able to get my carpets cleaned on Saturday and asked Scott if he would clean windows, screens, pressure wash patio etc. He did it all with a smile. Loved their work. His helper was great too.

Professional services without having to ask; above and beyond what I asked and price was firm without hidden extras. Their equipment was top notch and not normally found by local family businesses. They are now my permanent carpet cleaners.

I was very impressed by the Power Pup Clean from initial contact to project completion. My carpets never looked better. Thank you! I will tell all my friends about my experience, and will have them ask for Marcus Sal. Thank you Marcus, you are an asset to Power Pup Clean.

They were super responsive, helped come out to do a free estimate, and helped provide recommendation even though they weren't able to help with cleaning in the end because a carpet change was recommended. Than you once again for the help and I'd definitely recommend working with them!

The crew did a great job! They were on time and called to let me know they were one their way. Everything was wrapped up in the time window that was provided before hand and they even cleaned some rugs and smaller entry mats I had around the house without charging an arm an leg for it. I would highly recommend Seattle Steamers and I will be hiring them for future carpet cleaning jobs.

They showed up on time and completed a three bedroom job quickly and well. I had a ton of pet stains and was moving so I was worried that I wouldn't get my deposit back. Thanks to Seattle Steamers I think I will. Will recommend to anyone looking for a Carpet Cleaning service.

Anthony was great on everything. Communicated clearly, was super responsive, arrived on time and worked incredibly hard on our very worn and dirty carpets. They look great! He also gave me hints on treating future pet stains and how to clean my slate floors. Highly recommend him.

I manage a salon in Bellevue and have Power Pup come out regularly now to sanitize my tile floors and carpet in the waiting area. Not only do they truly clean the floors, but they look almost as good as new every time they finish. Given how much foot traffic and wear and tear these floors have, I'm so fortunate to have found this company to keep my business nice and clean. Thank you!!

The setup was very easy. They explained and ensured I understood the process before they started the work so that both parties are in agreement which was great. While performing their service, they explained to me what was happening, the cleaning process and what they were doing. Very professional and at the same time very nice, fun folks to talk to. They are a definite recommendation for the carpet cleaning service; they did a phenomenal job! I’m happy 🙂 Thank you Tracey and Michelle!

We had a great experience getting our carpets cleaned as part of a rental house moveout. From the time LaVonte responded to the request, came for a consultation to provide a more accurate quote, to the actual finished job, everything went really well. LaVonte was very professional and friendly, he was happy to answer questions and was patient as we finished moving items. I felt really good about the choice we made and service we received. The carpets looked great and we got our full deposit returned from the landlord which says a lot!! I would definitely recommend Glow!
