How Carpet Cleaning Costs Are Determined

Those people who have large carpeted areas, the first thing that concerns them is the costs that they will incur when it comes to cleaning the carpets. Many fear exorbitant rates when it comes to carpet cleaning by professional services. On the other hand, carpets that cover large areas need professional cleaning that will not only clean such floor accessories effectively but also help reduce stains, the worn down look that carpets get with age and help to keep such floor materials looking as good as new.

Those who wish to get their carpets cleaned would like to know what average costs they should expect. Many fear that they are overcharged for such services. Again, with several services available, including speedy door to door services or rentals, it often becomes confusing to know which would be a cost effective choice.

As every home would have carpeted areas of different floor sizes and different kinds of carpets installed, there is no single answer to how much it would cost to get such carpets cleaned by professional cleaners. Companies have certain methods by which they provide a costing to a customer. This is usually as per the room size, though certain carpet cleaning services might charge as per the number of rooms. Usually, there is a size cap that is included in such costing method. In certain places carpet cleaners might move the furniture and then place them back when cleaning the carpets; in other cases, customers are required to move back the furniture as the carpet cleaners charge extra for such services.

In certain cases, carpet cleaners charge as per square foot of area of carpet to be cleaned. There are additional travel and material or infrastructure costs that are added to such charges. Hence, if you have a larger home it becomes cheaper to opt for a carpet cleaning service in this case than when you have a small home. The square foot charges tend to be more reasonable and that includes the cost of products, labor and a guarantee of cleanliness that lasts for a certain time period.

Again, the type of carpet cleaning method adopted also creates a difference in the costs. The popular method is steam cleaning, which usually requires an additional time period for the carpet to be fully dry; in certain cases, chemical based dry cleaning is done, but such methods are often not as effective as the hot water steam cleaning method. The costs vary accordingly.
