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.

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.

I hired power pup to clean my carpets , and I had a lot of pet urine issues . The tech that arrived was friendly and efficient . After inspecting my carpets he got to work using a sleek machine that is without any hassles of hoses and water splat all over the areas. I thought carpet cleaning involved a complicated articulation of hoses and mess all over . I was proved wrong . All my carpet issues were resolved by this company .I highly recommend this company to all those looking for a fast efficient and inexpensive solution for their carpet issues .

I hire this company and was blown away by their methods and technology. They got rid of odor and pet stains which my last carpet cleaning company failed to. They have state of art machines that are powerful and provide deep cleaning. I have never really had a bad experience with a carpet cleaner but this was the best one i have had.

I was very impressed with Power Pup's service and outstanding results. Stains that other carpet cleaning companies couldn't remove are completely gone! My carpets look the best they have in years. Will definitely hire again!

The gentleman who cleaned my carpet did an excellent job! He was polite, on time, and completed the work within a very short time frame (5 rooms in about 40 minutes). My carpet looks brand new!

Very happy and will use again. Third time using thumbtack but this will be the only company I will use from now on for any carpet or couch cleaning. Do yourself a favor and let Mike and Power Pup Clean do the job. He will save you the headache of having to deal with lot of trouble and shady carpet cleaners who will nickel and dime and not produce results or provide satisfaction.

Hired them to clean 5 bedrooms and staircase and living room. My carpets had stains of all types and all kinds. I was told before the job to be realistic with my expectations. I took a chance of cleaning carpets instead of ripping them out, glad I hire them as they put in work time and effort . It did cost me more but that is understandable. They saved me far more money in new carpets. I could have hired a cheaper company and would have ended up having to put new pad and carpets. Mike rocks.

Hired them for cleaning my carpets. I was told upfront about expectations in terms of my heavily stained carpet by my technician Fakeer. He was very helpful and waited for me as well as I was running late. My carpet dried by the time he finished. My real state agent was very happy with how carpet looked. Fast drying allowed us to get the house staged and put it on market. Thank you for job well done.

All I can say is wow. They are the most professional people to wok with. I had lot of urine in my carpet. I hired a cheaper company that made th situation worse. I had to get carpets cleaned again and found Power Pup. They cleaned out the mess left by previous company. They expalined me entire process of cleaning and then got to it. They quoted me for the job before start and stayed true to it. I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for best cleaning in town.

Cannot write enough good things about this company. Best carpet cleaning experience. Costs were disclosed upfront and work was performed well above expectations. I was able to rent my property in a day. Previous renters had ruined the carpets. Highly recommend them.

Attached is the picture of what my carpet turned out to be. I tried to attach before as well but not sure it went through. Before they came out my carpet was not even the same color. More like dark charcoal with pee stains and juice stains from kids. They made me great recommendations and left a clean and sanitary carpet for my kids to walk and roll on. This is my fourth time using them. Mike is great at what he does and sends great techs out. All their techs are professional and background checked as well. Above all like most cleaners they don't use toxic and harsh chemicals.

They are far above the competition. In simple words. Their technology and products will top anyone else . Results speak for themselves. It looks like they installed new carpets instead of cleaning them. Unreal.

They did an exceptionally good job. They helped with moving things. Best of all they were really good to work with and around. Very pleasant. The carpets are clean and dried quickly. The rugs also.

I'll never hire anyone else! This company is incredible - I hadn't cleaned my carpets, except for once (I did it myself) in over 7 1/2 years. It turned out amazing. The owner himself came with one young man, and I watched how hard they worked over the next almost two hours. Wish I'd taken before pics, because I never thought anyone could get these carpets clean . . .foodstains, juice, gum, dirt, and a whole lot more - especially in my grandkids' (ages 3, 7 and 9 - need I say more?) rooms. Once Maxiclean completed the carpet cleaning, I was stunned. I couldn't believe my eyes - my carpets look new and feel great on our bare feet! Won't go into detail, but I will say that Maxistorm will always have my business. Bless you, Tony and crew!

They did a great job - however my apartment still charged me full price for a carpet cleaning. I told the owners and they refunded me completely. Super grateful super courteous.

Have never had a bad experience with any carpet cleaner from here but this was by far the best one. Removed lot of stains that have been there for years. Even old stains that I thought were permanent. Carpet dried much faster than I expected. It has continued to look good to this day. I highly recommend them
