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.

AJ's did a wonderful job cleaning my living/dining room carpets. Great communication and professionalism. I would definitely hire them again for my carpet cleaning needs.

Best Carpet cleaning I have ever had.

Not impressed. My husband was to meet Anthony at 6pm to let him into the property to clean the carpets. Anthony arrived at 5:45pm. So far so good. Since the cleaning girl was still there, she was able to let Anthony in to do the carpets. My husband arrived 15 minutes late, at 6:15 pm, and when he got there, Anthony was already loading up his equipment and said he was done cleaning the carpets. EXCUSE ME!!! There is no possible way to set up your equipment, clean the carpets in the entire house, and reload your equipment back onto the truck in 30 minutes time. When my husband pointed out spots and stains on the carpet, Anthony argued with my husband about them, saying that was normal. Finally, Anthony did go back and redo the stains, but the overall job was horrible. In my request, I had asked for the stairs to the basement to be cleaned as well, and he didn't even do those stairs at all. Anthony was a total waste of money! I should have cleaned the carpets myself. I would have done a way better job at a fraction of the cost. :(

The technician showed up within the expected time window. Upon arriving was super friendly to both us and our two dogs. He wasted no time in getting right to work. While he worked on the carpets, we took the dogs out to ensure we weren't in the way. When we returned the cleaning was complete and looked amazing. In addition to the carpeted area of our home we had a large shag rug cleaned which now looks like new! Would 100% recommend Seattle Steamers to anyone in need of carpet or other floor cleaning/repair work.

I would highly recommend Antwon for his hard work at cleaning our carpets. We asked him to clean the hallway that our cats had started peeing on in the corners over the past year and we asked for the stairs to be done. Not only was Antwon thorough with his work, and got every inch of our carpet, but he was also very kind and had a great presence about him. The stains in our carpet from the cat urine is unnoticed. The urine smell is gone and all the corners, where hair was hard to reach, are gone. Even the touch of the carpet feels fluffy and soft again. Especially where the urine marks were. Those spots are soft to touch again. Our carpet looks like brand new carpet again. It looks amazing. I will definitely recommend AJS to do our carpets again in the future and recommend him to all our neighbors and friends. Outstanding work. We are very happy customers. Thank you again Antwon.

Excellent experience from start to finish Found the company here and booked the job over phone. farazz the tech that came out was very professional and likable and fun to work with . He even waited for me as I had to run some errands. Pleasant to talk to and did a great job on the carpets. All the stains were removed. I highly recommend hiring Power clean and asking for the same guy who cleaned our carpets. Also carpet was dry hour or two after he finished. Amazing.

Jameson and Tessa were on top of it! I had a rental and a new home to get carpets cleaned and they did not disappoint! I’d hire them again!

We expected the stains to come up better but that's on us probably. He cleaned the baseboard areas that had turned dark gray from dust so i was happy with that. Carpet cleaners usually don't try to clean the edges to the baseboard but he did.

My experience with Power Pup Clean from the very start was nothing less than excellent. I found them on google search and saw the raving reviews. I use thumbtack for all my projects as I have been busy remodeling my vacation home. I had them clean carpets in my entire house including the stairs. My carpets were trashed. After the cleaning and drying which took 2-3 hours, my carpets are looking almost brand new. I did not expect this because in past my carpets would be wet for number of days and house would have a stale smell. No issues this time. I highly recommend this company over anyone els due to the thorough attention to the details and better quality green products. Special thanks to Mike who oversaw the project for me himself.

Best carpet cleaning service ever! Very prompt, arrived in a timely manner, and the professionalism was outstanding. Final price was a bit higher than original quote but it was irrelevant when Adam was through with my carpet. It had TERRIBLE pet odor and the odor has been completely lifted. 10/10 would recommend.

I have used them for carpet cleaning many times. I highly recommend them over anyone else. I have 3 kids and a dog so our carpets get very dirty every few months. This company has always lived up to the expectations. Their products are safe for my kids and dog.

Anthony did an amazing job on my carpets. They look almost brand new. He saved me the cost of replacing them, which I was sure I’d have to do. The smell of dog urine from the previous owners pets was just awful. I have another appointment for him to clean my upstairs carpet. Thanks again Anthony!

Another company whom I had scheduled with canceled at the last minute. I found Tessa and Jameson from Evergreen Steam Clean on an internet search through Thumbtack. They came the next day, right on time, and cleaned a VERY dirty carpet in one hour. It looks 100 % better, even though it's an old carpet!! Only comment is I don't think they moved the furniture to clean underneath it but that would have taken a lot more time. In the future I would request they do this for moveable furniture. I would be happy to pay for this extra thorough job!

Antwan did a great job steam cleaning my carpet today after my dogs tracked in a ton of dirt and sneaked potties on it. He worked hard to get all the stains and dirt up. I’m going to have him back to clean my hardwoods. Definitely recommend him!

My son and his family just had a new baby and I wanted to gift them shapooed carpets. Tony was very quick to reply to any of my questions and informative. My son reports he was punctual and friendly. He was conscientious and thorouh and the carpet is exceptionally clean. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a service with high quality, respectful personnel and honest pricing.
