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 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.

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.

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. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for professional carpet cleaning?

It’s common for professional carpet cleaners to accept digital payments such as Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay, Zelle, PayPal and others. The current COVID-19 pandemic is quickly encouraging other companies to digitally transform as well. Make sure the carpet cleaner you hire will accept a digital payment instead of cash or check, and come up with a strategy for complying with social distancing regulations.

Compare carpet cleaners near you to see which types of payments they accept.

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.

Anthony did a great job with our carpets. We have 2 dogs and after today's cleaning our carpets look good as new. No pet stains, no smell. He also broomed and vaccumed the spots around clean after the steam clean. Left the areas around the carpet and rug spotless. No wash stains on the walls or trims. I would definitely hire him again.

Fast, responsive and very effective. We were convinced we would need to replace our carpets prior to having them cleaned by Power Pup Clean. The team did a fantastic job. Highly recommended.

Carpet looks really clean. He had trouble finding me, but kept looking until he did. Nice guy. Very easy going. A pleasure to work with.

I received an immediate response to my request for an online quote. They were able to schedule me in on very short notice at a time that worked with my busy workweek schedule as well. Didn't have to worry about my pets since they didn't use any harsh chemicals to clean and the cleaning itself didn't leave my carpets completely drenched afterwards. Carpets turned out great, final price matched the quote, would definitely hire them again!

The carpets were very dirty,with lots of pet stains. They came out looking clean,and with much less odor. The gentleman and his son were very pleasant to work. They were on time and worked very hard,particularly the son.

The job was cancelled because the carpet cleaner had an equipment issue at the day of appointment. It's a little disappointing as I took the entire day WFH for this appointment. I ended up finding another company that can arrange an appointment during the weekend.

Techs were professional and friendly. They explained the cleaning process and recommended the proper treatments I needed for the stains in my carpet. All work was quoted for and signed on upfront so there were no surprises in cost. I was very pleased with the results and removal of virtually all stains. My flooring has never looked or smelled better. I'll be recommending this company to everyone!

Moses and his team is great ! Amazing response time and made my carpet squeaky clean, very reasonable. At first I thought I would have them move the furniture but figured I was strong enough but they were willing to do it for a very nominal additional charge. Moses is a great friendly guy. I really liked the service and will def. hire them again . He worked hard on few areas for stain removal. Impressive work and outstanding response time!!!

Josefino did a great job for me. I am am out of state owner of a rental property. Good Communication is a must. Josefino was very informative, polite and best of all he is a great communicator. Through email, text, phone calls and thumbtack. He sent me pictures of the job that he completed and was honest to say that there where some places that had stains that could not be removed. I will use him again for any of my carpet cleaning needs. Give him a try and see for yourself.
