“How much will it cost?”

That is the one question every customer has when researching or hiring a professional service.

If the estimate or price quoted is well outside of the budget you have in mind or can afford, odds are it doesn’t matter how wonderful their service sounds.

When it comes to carpet cleaning prices, there are a lot of factors that could impact the final price of your service.

The cost of carpet cleaning is dependent on the total square feet, style of carpet, specialty stain removal, carpet protector and accessibility, among other factors.

Therefore, in order to prepare yourself for carpet cleaning prices and estimates for your home or business, you will want to consider these factors:

Calculating Carpet Cleaning Prices

Square Feet

The total amount of square feet of carpet you want cleaned will be the number one factor in determining how carpet cleaning prices and estimates for your home or business.

Here is a nice online calculator for determining the square feet of a room in your home.

It should come as no surprise that the more carpet you want to have cleaned, the more money you will spend.

Some carpet cleaning services will price based on the number of rooms rather than the actual square feet, but more often than not the price will be in direct correlation with the number of square feet of carpet cleaned.

Carpet Style

Some carpet styles are easier to clean than others. Berber carpet is very industrial and very easy to clean so there shouldn’t be any additional costs added to your estimate if you have Berber carpet in your home or business.

However, Frieze carpet and wool carpet are much more difficult to clean. A carpet cleaner could charge more money to account for the increased difficulty and additional time and solutions required to clean wool carpet.

Expect any reputable carpet cleaning service to cost a minimum of $99 depending on coupons and deals offered.

Carpet Stain Protector

There are carpet cleaning companies that will include their carpet stain protector directly in their cleaning solution, however, that cost will be reflected in the overall estimate whereas most companies will offer carpet stain protector as an additional cost.

You should purchase carpet stain protector if it is within your budget or close to it. Professional carpet stain protector helps prevent permanent damage to carpet and extend its lifetime.

Pet Urine Odor Removal

Pet urine is an incredibly harmful carpet stain and it requires professional time and attention.

If you have a lot of pet urine stains on your carpet you want cleaned (and you should have them cleaned immediately) you should expect that the carpet cleaning cost for your home would be significantly higher.

We highly recommend having pet urine carpet stains professionally cleaned and removed immediately. Pet urine can soak deep into carpet fibers so much so that it can saturate the carpet pad and even the floorboards beneath, not to mention that the odor is very unpleasant and potent.

Rug Cleaning

Rugs are an additional cost and usually cost between $30-$60 each depending on the size or the stains. Oriental rugs can cost much more as they require much more delicate care.

Upholstery Cleaning

Furniture upholstery is an additional cost and will vary depending on the fabric and size of the furniture.

Upholstered recliners and chairs will range from around $50-$75 each while couches and love seats can cost over $100 to be cleaned.
