Cost Checklist for Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Regular carpet cleaning can help to add years to the life of your carpet. We want to help you find the best company for your project. Use the information below to learn more about the cost of carpet cleaning and get tips for hiring a local company.

Items that may impact the cost:

1. Your geographic location. Where is your business located? The cost of carpet cleaning is typically higher in large cities. If you live in the outer suburbs or a more rural area, you can expect to pay a little less. To find estimated rates in your area, check out our Carpet Cleaning Cost Report.

2. Total square footage. Most commercial carpet cleaners will base their quote on the square footage of carpet that needs to be cleaned. For very large buildings, you may be able to negotiate a lower rate per square foot.

3. Type of carpeting. The type of carpeting in your building may impact the cost of cleaning. Some carpet piles may be more difficult to clean than others. The color of the carpet may also affect the cost per square foot. For instance, light-colored carpets may be more expensive to clean than darker ones.

4. Obstacles and obstructions. In some cases, moving furniture and other equipment out of the way may increase the cost of the carpet cleaning service. Additionally, it is typically easier to clean wide-open areas than many smaller, confined spaces.

5. Cleaning method. Steam cleaning (or hot water extraction) is typically more expensive than dry carpet cleaning. However, with dry carpet cleaning, there is much less drying time.

6. Current condition of the carpet. When was the carpeting last cleaned? Is it heavily soiled or has it been well-maintained? Spot treating certain areas will increase the overall cost. Additionally, taking care of flooding or other water damage will drive up the cost of cleaning.

7. Routine vs. One-time cleanings. Signing a contract with a single service provider may help bring down the cost of the service. One-time cleanings are often a little more expensive, especially if the carpets are heavily soiled.

8. Additional cleaning services. Some carpet cleaning companies may offer additional cleaning services. These add-ons, such as grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, or floor waxing, will increase the cost of your project.

9. Request multiple cost estimates. It’s important to request estimates from several different contractors before making a hiring decision. This helps to make certain you are getting a fair deal. You should take some time to review the quotes and decide which one best serves the needs of your company.

10. Finding a reputable company. Cost should definitely be a part of your decision making process, but it cannot be the only factor. It’s essential that you find a reliable company that has experience in commercial carpet cleaning. Ask other local business for recommendations or take advantage of online review sites.
