What components determine carpet cleaning rates?

There is no rational way for a professional carpet cleaning company to estimate the cost of a carpet cleaning job until they have actually seen the area which will be treated. Some carpet cleaners charge based on the amount of damage and types of textiles. Others include it in the price and just charge you for the sq ft. they clean.

The most important thing to consider when pricing carpet cleaning services is the size of the job. Usually, the larger the area that needs to be treated, the more it will cost. Most professional carpet cleaners use exact square footage numbers to calculate the cost of treatment, while other charge by the room.

The condition of your carpet will have the greatest impact on cost for some carpet cleaning companies. The difference between lightly soiled and heavily soiled flooring can be vital in the final calculations of a cleaning for some technicians. For others, such as our company, we don’t charge any extra fees if it’s lightly or heavily soiled.

How are additional services estimated into carpet cleaning cost?

If there are tough deep rooted stains, dis-colored spots or severely damaged areas, the technician will have to dedicate special attention to fixing these problem areas. Some companies will add an additional extensive treatment fee. For this reason and many more, it is recommended that home-owners perform daily maintenance on their carpeting to keep there households healthy and in amazing condition.
