Professional carpet cleaning keeps your carpet looking spotless for longer and protects it from damage. But before hiring a carpet cleaning company, you should know how much they’ll charge you.
The average cost of carpet cleaning is around $150-200. Depending on various factors, this price can be as low as $89-100 and as high as $300-400. In this blog, we will discuss the factors affecting carpet cleaning costs in detail to help you figure out the amount you’ll have to pay.
Factors Affecting the Carpet Cleaning Cost
The size of your carpet or the area/ rooms affects the overall cost of carpet cleaning. Most carpet cleaners charge $0.3 to 0.5 per square foot and at least $30-40 for a room.
Some companies include discounted prices for multiple rooms with a fixed rate of $200-500 for 5 rooms and $350-700 for homes with more than 6 rooms. So check if a company offers a discount on the room before hiring.
⇒ Type of Carpet
Another factor that influences the cost of carpet cleaning is the material and build of your carpet. The more expensive your carpet’s material is, the more costly it will be to get it cleaned.
Some materials are more durable and require less cleaning effort, while they may not provide as much comfort. On the other hand, warm, shaggy carpet materials require more attention when cleaning to avoid damage. The average cost of cleaning some carpet materials is listed below.
- $90-100 for Berber carpets
- $8-90 for cut and loop carpets
- $60-250 for synthetic carpets
- $100-400 for cotton and wool carpets
⇒ Level of Soiling
Your carpet condition can also affect the price you pay for professional cleaning. Heavily soiled carpet full of dirt and stains will be more costly to restore compared to a carpet that receives regular cleaning and maintenance.
So, if you want to keep the cost of carpet cleaning low, vacuum it at least 3-4 times a week and remove tough stains from your carpet as soon as possible. It will ensure your carpet remains in good condition in between professional carpet cleanings and help keep the cost low.
⇒ Cleaning Methods
Experts use different methods to clean your carpet based on your cleaning needs. These methods require distinct equipment and also have different prices.
Hot Water Extraction
Hot water extraction is the most popular carpet cleaning method. It costs between $100 to $400 for non-water damaged carpets. But the price can be as high as $450 to $1500 if you want to clean a water-damaged carpet.
Dry cleaning uses a chemical compound to clean carpets. The price is around $80-300.
The bonnet cleaning method is mostly preferred for high-traffic areas that don’t have downtime for drying. The cost is around $30-90.
Some companies offer green cleaning methods and use only eco-friendly cleaning solutions. The cost of green cleaning can range from $110-200 per room.
⇒ Additional Costs
