Frequently asked questions about carpet cleaners

Professional carpet cleaners typically charge either per room or according to the square footage of all the carpets to be cleaned. For per room carpet cleaning charges, the national average is about $25-$70 per room, depending on where you live and how many rooms need to be cleaned. For square footage costs, expect to pay between $80-$130 for a home with 200-400 sq. ft. home and $200-$300 for 1000-1500 sq. ft. home.

Most professional carpet cleaners don’t require you to vacuum before your carpets are cleaned, but it’s still a good idea to do so for the most thorough carpet cleaning. More important than vacuuming, however, is ensuring that the rooms are cleared of furniture and clutter. Don’t expect furniture moving as part of a typical carpet cleaning project, so be sure to plan ahead before carpet cleaners arrive to ensure a fast and thorough carpet cleaning experience.

The quick answer is yes, carpet cleaning is usually worth it and can prolong the life of your carpets, which will save a lot of money in the long run. Furthermore, professional carpet cleaning is the best way to maintain better looking carpets and a healthier home.

A thorough carpet cleaning will remove dirt, stains, and debris, eliminate odors, and minimize bacteria, allergens, dust, and pollen. Regular carpet cleaning every 6-12 months is particularly recommended for those with pets, babies or small children who regularly play on carpet, and allergy sufferers.

Steam cleaning works as well, and sometimes better, than shampoo. Steam cleaning uses a steam mop and hot water vapor to break down dirt, and shampooing uses a detergent to do the same job. Steam cleaned carpets dry faster than shampooing, usually within about 48 hours. Steam cleaning also removes mildew spores and mold, dust mites, fleas, and bedbugs. And as long the carpet is allowed to dry thoroughly before use, there is no residue from steam cleaning to cause re–soiling.

Shampooing a carpet is usually better for heavily soiled carpets that require specialized detergents to break down dirt and grime. The solution thoroughly soaks the carpet for a more thorough cleaning, but it usually takes about 3-5 days to dry.
