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.

My carpets had heavy foot traffic and pet stains. I had hired another carpet cleaner and unfortunately it did not clean the carpets well and it took days to dry. After reading Power Pup's reviews, I decided to give them a try, and it that was the best decision I made. I suffer from allergies, so not only are my carpets clean and free of stains, but I can breathe now! Scheduling was easy, and Mike was quick to respond, and the technicians were very knowledgable and professional. I had them come back the following day and clean my rugs and couches because I was so impressed. They turned out great also. So glad I found this company. Many thanks guys.

Anthony cleaned our carpets and rugs at our house and we are very satisfied with his work. Our carpets look and smell very fresh and he took the time to focus on a few areas that required some more TLC. Thanks again and will hire again.

I knew up front there was no assurance the carpet could be fully cleaned. Our dog had peed on the rug consistently and it smelled. Power Pup Clean agreed to give it a shot. They technician worked extremely hard with impressive expertise. The first time reduced much of the carpet from the smell and color. The technicians were not satisfied. They returned and targeted bad areas. Again the carpet brightened and the small was gone except for the worst area. They are returning, one more time, to tackle that area. I am impressed by their commitment and pleased with the results they were able to achieve.

Marcus showed up on time, he was very personable and talked us through the house and the cleaning. He set expectations which were that the pet smells would be nuteralized however some of the stains would likely reappear due to the wear of the carpet and potential that they had soaked into the pad. Overall our home smells a better but to be honest the carpets look the same. It may just be that they are beyond help.

George cleaned the carpets at two houses for me. The house I just bought and the rental I was vacating. In each instance he was on time, and did a very satisfactory job. I would recommend him to anyone.

The two of them did a mind blowing job in doing deep cleaning and carpet cleaning of our house. They independently identified areas that needed focus and did a stellar job. They were punctual, good with communications and very dedicated. I would highly recommend using their services. Thank you both once again!

We had steam cleaning with desanitization and deodorize done. Farhaz and Marcus were amazing! They explained tips to keep the carpets from failing as well as what to do in the event of a stain. They also explained the cost to clean hardwood and to make the flooring look like new. They immediately swung into action and now the hardware looks shiny and beautiful.
