One popular pricing model is to charge per room

Price Per Room

One of the most common ways for carpets to be priced is per room. The carpet cleaning cost per room can vary between companies, but homeowners can usually get a good idea of what the total cost would be to have a professional clean the carpets in part or all of their home. The price can increase if the carpet is stained or if there is anything else that needs to be done. If you’re in Carmel, IN, call us to get a quote for the cost to clean the carpets in your home.

Price Per Square Foot

Another common way to determine the price is per square foot. This is often used in open-concept areas as a single room would be much larger than a standard bedroom, so the price per room wouldn’t be accurate. Homeowners can use the carpet cleaning price per square foot multiplied by the size of the carpet in their home to determine the total cost.

Price Per Project

Many homes have hardwood or tile flooring throughout, with area rugs used in many of the rooms. For homes like this, it would be too expensive to pay per room or per square foot. Instead, cleaning companies will typically charge by the rug or by the project. A custom quote is needed here, so homeowners can predict the total cost to have the rugs clean.

Another method of pricing is to charge differently for different types of carpets

Prices for Different Carpet Types

One of the factors that can impact the carpet cleaning prices is the type of carpet throughout the home. Berber carpet is the easiest to clean, so it will be the least expensive. Cut and level loop is more difficult to clean, so the price can be a bit higher. Cotton and wool carpets are going to be harder to clean, so the price will be higher as a result.

Prices for Different Cleaning Methods

The two main methods used by professionals for carpet cleaning are hot water extraction or steam cleaning and dry cleaning. The method used will depend on the preferences of the homeowner as well as the type of carpet. It can also vary based on the number of stains or debris in the carpets, as the dry-cleaning method cannot remove deep stains. Dry cleaning, however, is the faster method, so it’s better when the homeowner needs to be able to use the carpet again quickly. Depending on the method used, it could be more or less expensive to have the carpets completely cleaned.

Prices for Stain Removal

Stains can be difficult to remove from carpets, especially if they have been set in the carpet for a while. Depending on the stain, it may require extra work for it to be removed completely and for the carpet to be fully restored. For this reason, some stains will mean the carpet cleaning prices are higher than they otherwise would be. If you have stains in the carpet, call us for a custom quote so you can find out how much it will cost to have them removed completely.

Prices for Upholstery

Upholstery is generally priced different from carpets. The total cost will depend on the size of the furniture, the furniture’s materials, and whether there are any stains. Older furniture can cost a little bit more to clean, especially if there are stains because it’s important to be more careful with the older materials. A custom quote is a good idea when looking into any upholstery cleaning because the prices can vary significantly. We can give you a custom quote for cleaning all of the upholstery in your home, so you know what to expect when we arrive.
