Cost is always the big question when it comes to carpet care services, especially because consulting with your spouse is a top priority. That's why we tried to make estimating the cost of carpet cleaning simple.
The general cost carpet cleaning can be calculated pretty easily, and differs slightly based on the carpet cleaning company.
What could definitely change the cost is if your carpet is very dirty and stained. The price could be higher than if your carpet has been well kept over the years from vacumming and basic shampooing.
Many carpet care companies charge extra to remove red stains from wine or food and pet-related stains because these may require additional solutions and labor, therefore, keep these possible extra charges in mind as you do your research.
In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $50 per room depending on the company and the condition of your carpet.
As you begin to research for a carpet cleaning company, you’ll want to know the general price range for carpet cleaning.
While some companies charge per room, others can opt to charge per square foot.
Alan Fetcher of AbcCarpets.com lays it out well:
A common bedroom size is 10’ X 14’ or 140 square feet.
- At 18 cents per square foot the cost for cleaning would be about $25.00 (Carpet doesn’t appear dirty)
- At 28 cents per square foot the cost for cleaning would be about $40.00 (Carpet looks fairly dirty)
- At 36 cents per square foot the cost for cleaning would be about $50.00 (Carpet is very dirty!)
Pegasus' carpet care services begin at $89.95, which takes care of three rooms. That comes out to about $30 per room. For extra red stains or pet stains where extra chemicals and labor might be needed, there will be extra costs.
Pegasus also features its whole house special that costs $159.95. For example, if you have five rooms, this special would value at $32 per room if you have four rooms. If you have a few more rooms, this is a great opportunity.
I hope this has given you some insight about the value of carpet cleaning. It's not as costly as many may think it would be, and it actually preserves your investment by prolonging the life of your carpet.
