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.

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.

I had carpets cleaned in the whole house when they finished they sprayed the carpets with scotch guard treatment. It looked as though they were using cheap pump up spray bottles,anyway after they left I spent the rest of my day cleaning over spray off of the wood along the carpet meets wall,also had drips of the solution all over my hard wood floors and the slate flooring in the hallways the solution they used turned to a chalky white after it drys and took the wax off the hard wood floors where ever it dripped on them

It was a pleasure having our carpet cleaned by such a fine professional who really cared about his work and was honest, polite and caring. We had a stain which was very prominent, but it's completely gone and our carpet looks like new. We were told that if the stain reappears, just call and it will be taken care of with no charge. What a joy to do business with a good man. We highly recommend Angel's Carpet Care and will never have anyone else take care of our home. Thank you! We are so very happy with all aspects of the service.

Al did a great job and was courteous and professional. My carpet had stains and I had given up on cleaning them and Al managed to get most of them up. I will definitely use him again in the future.

Anthony did a great job cleaning our carpet on the stairs. Very professional equipment and he arrived on time. It’s 100% green so we don’t need to worry since I’m pregnant and we have a pet at home.

Anthony was thorough, careful, and did a great job. He put edge protectors around the stairs and walls and took his time to do a thorough job. He even scrubbed the stairs to make sure the carpet were clean. His price was fair and matched what he quoted me. I will use him again next time!

Al made getting my mom's carpet cleaned, before she comes home from a skilled nursing facility, very painless. He was quick to respond on email, as well as polite, pleasant and efficient on the job. I wasn't able to give more than a day's notice, which wasn't ideal, but he was gracious about it. His self-contained machine worked well for this 4th floor condo as vans with long hoses wouldn't have been able to park by the side of the building this week. I'll hire Al again. Thanks Al!
