Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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. 

How often should carpets be steam cleaned?

Dirty carpets can be unhealthy for the people living in the home, particularly those who have allergies, so it’s important to have them cleaned regularly; simply vacuuming once or twice a week isn’t enough. Carpet cleaning should be done by a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year to remove grime and help extend the life of your carpet. Most carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning, which penetrates deep into the carpet fibers and lifts out both dirt and the pollutants that get tracked inside. Steam cleaning also removes most of the moisture, so carpets dry quickly enough for homeowners to resume using them the same day. Between professional carpet cleanings, your carpet may need an emergency spot cleaning. Pet accidents, food or drink spills, and more can often be effectively cleaned with some water and a drop of white vinegar, although many cleaners will also make house calls for smaller spills and hard-to-clean spots like wine or grease stains.

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

Whether your pet had an accident, the party got too wild, or your kids can’t control their juice boxes — we all need rug cleaning from time to time. In fact, even if you don’t have a spill or spot, it’s wise to have your area rug cleaned approximately once a year to keep the rug fibers in good health. In general, rug cleaning prices depend on the square footage of the rug, what the rug is made of, whether any repairs are needed, and whether you require the pro to travel to your location or provide pickup and drop-off services. Nationally, average area rug cleaning prices range from $80 to $120.

Wool and silk area rugs typically cost more to clean than rugs made from synthetic fibers because the more delicate materials take more care and may require specialized cleaning fluids. For example, a synthetic rug may cost $1.50 per square foot to clean; a wool, cotton, or chiffon rug could be $2 per square foot; and a silk or Navajo wool rug could cost $3 per square foot. The two most common rug cleaning methods are steam and chemical cleaning. The costs for the two methods are often the same, although a steam-cleaned rug will take longer to dry due to the moisture. If your area rug needs odor removal, moth deterrent, or hand washing, there will be additional charges.

Overall a good experience, my original schedule time was 3:30 but arrived around 5:30. I have had my carpets cleaned twice a year at my previous house and it is usually a van that comes with water and hoses to clean the carpets. She used a Hoover steam cleaner. The carpets came out pretty clean, but I thought it was going to be a commercial type cleaner and in and out in about a hour. It took her a few hours to clean the rugs but she went above and beyond and cleaned my closet rugs and left me a welcome home present. Which was a very nice gesture.

Reuben was able to fit my carpet cleaning in his schedule within 24 hours! The crew was friendly and fast. They deep cleaned my carpets in my empty rental house in about 30 minutes. I also appreciated that the crew didn't include the pet enzyme treatment that we thought we might need--they were honest that the carpet didn't need it and therefore the cost was less than estimated. The carpet turned out beautiful and they were even able to get out some marker stains that we thought were permanent.

Best carpet cleaning I ever had. VERY thorough. Got all dirty spots clean. Even got tile and linoleum floors clean. They moved everything. Were done in 2.5 hrs. Amazing. Would highly recommend. Their rotating shampoo "circles" are much more effective than any "steam" cleaning I've ever had.

Was earlier than expected but called first to see if it was ok and was willing to keep the original time. Worked efficiently. Carpet came out well. Stairs that were totally trashed came out remarkably clean

Received an online quote from Nichole for carpet cleaning. Nichole then directed me to her "manager" to call to schedule the appointment. Service was to be Friday 7/24/15 at 1pm. I took a day off work, moved 2 rooms of furniture in order to prepare for the carpet cleaning Humming Byrd was to do. No call, no show. I called the office number to ask where they were, and I was told they had nothing scheduled for me. At first, I was offered a 6pm appointment, but due to guests arriving that would not work for me. I was then asked if they could call me right back. 3 days later I am still waiting for that call back. Not worth the aggravation. Will not try to use this company again.

Id called with additional questions and spoke with Cary, he was super polite, and answered all my questions. On the day of my carpet cleaning he arrived on time, did a walk through assessment, we confirmed the price and he and Chris got right. I was very pleased and will be recommending the Hunter Bros. To friends and family.

I have to say that I was more than impressed with the results of the carpet cleaning service provided by We Clean. I would definitely use them again. My only gripe would be that the final price ended up little higher then the estimate I was given. I guess I was expecting the estimate to be the all in charge but it ended up not to include an "environmental disposal charge" and taxes. Again not a big deal but good to know when comparing estimates that are fairly close.

The cleaning job was good but not so great at stain removal. Did an OK job overall. Only 3 out the 6 stained areas are stain free. Also, the initial quote I received after I specifically mentioned heavy stains was $45 which changed to $90 after I sent photos of the carpet. I didn't make a big deal out of it but doesn't sit well in terms of trust.

I would hire these guys again in a heartbeat. Reuben and his team are punctual (even early!), efficient, timely, and cost-effective. Our living room looks like a completely new room, and they were in and out in less then 45 minutes for 4 rooms. I couldn't be happier with the service and the results; I would recommend Reuben and his team to anyone looking for carpet cleaning. I'm completely blown away. Thank you so much, Reuben, for all of your hard work, communication, and results in a turnaround time of 2 days!

I booked an appointment for a carpet cleaning/general cleaning service for 1pm on Saturday. I arrived at my empty condo unit and contacted Nicole Byrd at 1:18pm when she was late and did not hear from her. At that time, she mentioned that she was at a job that was taking longer than expected, with two people who called in sick, and would arrive at 3pm. I understand that things happen and people call in sick, so I understood and reminded her that I would be waiting. At 3:31pm, I spoke with her on the phone again and said that she was just leaving a job and could arrive at 4:15 "AT THE LATEST." I was upset, as I had plans for Saturday evening, but really needed my carpet and unit cleaned, as I had people coming to help paint the following day. At 4:15, I attempted to call her three times and then received a text message that she was on her way, "conning" down the highway from West Bend. As time continued, I became upset, knowing that I would have to cancel my plans. I texted her back and let her know that I had cancelled my plans for the evening and was waiting for her, as I really needed the service done that day. I called again at 4:29pm, and 4:50pm, and a few other times between 5:00pm and 6:00pm. I sent her one text message and left her one voicemail with the same information: I was waiting and that if she could not come, the least she could do at this point is let me know, so that I could leave... Since I spent all of this time in my EMPTY condo unit waiting for her. Nicole never responded to let me know that she was not coming, or her reason for not coming. I waited 7 hours for her. I can not believe the audacity of this woman and her company. This was the most jaw dropping experience that I have ever had with any sort of "professional."
