Carpet Cleaning FAQ

Carpet stains are, unfortunately, very noticeable and make terrible eyesores. Even just regular wear and tear can make your carpets appear and feel less than ideal.

Our professional carpet cleaning in Carlisle, PA team has over a decade of experience helping healthier home carpets.

However, we do get a lot of questions about how carpet cleaning works, how long it takes, and how much it costs. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions about carpet cleaning.

How Much Does Carpet Cleaning Typically Cost?

On average, carpet cleaning in the U.S. costs $175 but ranges from $120 to $250 depending on quality and expertise. At Clean Pros, our carpet cleaning services start at $25 per room and as low as $99 for three rooms.

What Carpet Cleaning Methods Are There?

There are multiple ways to clean your carpets. Some include steam cleaning, shampooing, chemically-cleaning, and dry carpet cleaning.

Steam cleaning is one of the best ways to clean carpets. In steam cleaning, hot water is applied to carpets with pressure to dissolve dirt and mud. It can also make matted carpets more ‘fluffed’ to feel softer. But carpets may remain wet for a while.

Shampooing carpets takes special detergents and water, similar to shampooing your hair. Brushes will scrub shampoo into the carpet, and then clean water rinses the carpets clean of dirt and debris. However, with this method, carpets may remain wet for hours afterward.

Chem-dry carpet cleaning was designed to get the job done without waiting for carpets to dry. It involves using strong detergents and chemicals to remove dirt.

How Soon Can You Walk On Your Carpets After They Get Cleaned?

It typically takes three to six hours for carpets to completely dry after a professional cleaning but can take up to 24 hours depending on the time of year, weather, and humidity. When steam cleaning, professionals will typically extract the majority of the water directly from the carpet; however, it will still be slightly damp.

At Clean Pros, we use specialized dry carpet cleaning methods so you can get back to your home as soon as possible and don’t have to worry about chemicals. We ensure high-quality results with as little risk as possible.

How Often Should You Have Carpets Professionally Cleaned?

Ideally, your carpets will stay looking and feeling their best if you get them cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

Is it Worth it to Get Professional Carpet Cleaning?

Many homeowners decide to use a small cleaner themselves rather than hiring a professional, but this works best if you only have small spots to clean. A professional carpet cleaning can offer more deep cleaning and professionals have the training and tools required to get the job done quickly and efficiently. It will likely be faster than doing it yourself and can dry faster, so you can get back into your rooms quicker.
