How much does carpet cleaning cost?

Feb 19, 2018

A regular carpet cleaning is necessary to keep your carpets in top shape. Dirt accumulates in your carpet over time, and sometimes stains or smells can linger. Then an accident or a sudden spill may need immediate attention. Luckily, there are several types of carpet cleaning that can help.


There are several factors to take into account when you set out to tackle carpet cleaning. You'll need to consider the type of cleaning you would like as well as any pesky stains that will need special attention. To learn more about each of these considerations read more below.

Steam Cleaning
Steam cleaning is great for those stubborn stains on synthetic carpets. If you've already tried removing a stain and it wasn’t successful then hiring a steam cleaning professional can be an economical way to take care of the spot.
Dry Cleaning

For speciality carpets, dry cleaning is the best option. Wool or plant fibres need extra care. Dry cleaning is the best way to get your carpets clean and avoid damage. However, it is a more expensive option.


For some, deodorising is a necessary step in the cleaning process. If you have a nasty spill or stain it may have also made your carpets smell. A deodorising process usually takes place while the carpet is being steam cleaned. Depending on the products used, this can add to the project's total cost.

Size of Property

When working out the cost of your carpet cleaning, don't forget about the room size! A single large room may cost as much as several smaller rooms. Take the time to measure the length and width of your room to work out the square footage. You can then use this number to work out the anticipated cost. Higher square footage usually means higher cost.

Number of Rooms

If you're looking to have several carpeted rooms cleaned, expect the cost to climb as the size of the room increases. An annual cleaning will typically include all carpeted rooms in your home.

Of course, you can choose to clean on a smaller scale by focusing on specific rooms. For example, if there's been a wine spill after a party, you can request a quote for a single room. This, along with the job's square footage, can help keep costs down.


There are countless ways your carpet can become stained. For instance, food and drinks can easily stain the carpet fibres.

Common stain-causing foods include tomato sauce, mustard, and peanut butter. For the best results when removing the stain, scrape off as much of the food as possible before tackling it.

On the drink side, the most notorious stains come from red wine and grape juice. These liquid penetrate deep into the carpet.

Candle wax, blood, and pet accidents can also cause stains that are difficult to remove. Speed is the key to dealing with any of these stains.

Try and clean up any stain before it sets, but if it's too late, don't fear. If a stain has set in, a steam cleaning service can still help. Professionals have additional tricks up their sleeve to remove even the most stubborn stains.

Keep in mind that if your stain is particularly difficult to remove it can add to the cost of the job. However, it will be well worth the effort in the end.


Carpeted stairs need a little more attention when it comes to cleaning. It takes more effort to clean each tread and the crevices that collect dirt. The steam cleaner uses a special attachment to get into these narrow spaces to get it clean. It's harder to navigate this space and so it takes more time to clean. The front of each step is especially prone to staining and can require extra attention during the cleaning process. With the daily traffic on your staircase, it's important to clean it regularly.


Pets are one of the most common offenders because they can track in mud on their paws. They can also soil or stain your carpets through accidents. It's a great idea to bring in a professional carpet cleaner to refresh your carpets. Pet owners should allow for regular cleanings to keep things clean.


Smoking indoors can leave a lingering smell in your carpet fibres. Cleaning your carpet will remove any smells and create a fresh start for yourself or for your guests. You may need to clean and deodorize your carpets to fully remove the smell, which can add to the cost.

Jacob came and built our new wardrobe, it admittedly took longer than expected due to it being more complex than we anticipated when we requested the job, but he happily took the extra time and did a fabulous job. We are very happy with his services.
