Carpet cleaning cost

    Creating coziness and comfort in the house is closely related to maintaining continual cleanliness. However, carpets play a particularly important role among all interior elements. We may sometimes not think about it, but carpets actually act as filters that accumulate dust, allergens, dirt and other tiny particles. In order for carpets to perform their task consistently and effectively, they are required regular and deep cleaning. This aspect becomes especially important when we understand that the cleanliness of carpets directly affects our health and overall well-being.
    Most of the carpeting in houses in Cape Coral is synthetic nylon. Synthetic fibers have their own characteristics, for which several types of cleaning are provided with a certain price range. We will talk about the cost of cleaning carpets of this type further.

    Professional Carpet Cleaning Cost

    Prices for professional carpet cleaning depend on the number of rooms and their area. Our pricing system is built on the accumulation of discounts depending on the number of rooms. Therefore, the more rooms that need cleaning, the cheaper cost of each room for you, and, accordingly, the total price.

    Regular carpet cleaning in a house with three rooms, a hall and stair will cost an average of $280 – $330.

    Deep cleaning is 50% more expensive, that is, 420 – 495 dollars.

    Next, we will talk in detail about how prices are formed, what these services consist of and what additional options are possible.

    Cost per room

    Regular cleaning cost without additional services is $95, low levels of soiling for a room up to 250 square feet. It is also called refresh cleaning. But each next room will cost you less. For example, if you need to clean carpets in 2 rooms, as long as the size of each room does not exceed 250 square feet, the cost per room will be $80. Accordingly, if the service is ordered for 3 rooms, the price for each will be already 75 dollars.

    A high level of soiling means more thorough cleaning like deep cleaning. Price for 1 room up to 250 square feet is $145. The pricing principle is the same as for regular cleaning.

    Cost per square foot

    The price for basic cleaning without additional services is calculated per room. But we can show an estimated price per square foot. It is not fixed, because it is deducted from the flat rate for a room up to 250 square feet. If the room is smaller than this area, the price per square foot goes up.

    For example, for a 250 square foot room, the price per square foot is about $0.38.

    Carpet Cleaning Prices by Cleaning Method

    Hot Water Extraction (HWE) Carpet Cleaning

    Hot water extraction is a carpet cleaning method when a special machine, warm water, and a powerful cleaner are used to remove all the dust and dirt from the carpet. Compared to conventional steam cleaning and dry cleaning, this method is considered to be more effective. This is because hot water extraction combines the power of machine pressure, cleaning agent and high temperatures. This cleaning method can remove even the most stubborn stains and extract dirt that is deeply embedded in the carpet fibers. The hot temperature that is used during the cleaning process will kill any germs and bacteria that may have accumulated on the carpet. The detergent will help to break down stubborn stains and dirt.

    Quick drying after the procedure is very important to avoid the appearance of mold and mildew. This procedure is included in our services for regular cleaning and deep cleaning, therefore it does not have an additional cost.

    Steam cleaning

    Steam cleaning is also known as deep cleaning or extraction cleaning. Unlike the previous method, much less water is used in this case. This is one of the most popular ways to clean modern carpets and rugs. It allows gentle cleaning and will not void the carpet warranty. This type of cleaning requires special professional equipment, which we use. It does not require quick drying, but on the contrary, carpets should dry for at least 24 hours.

    Shampoo Carpet Cleaning

    We have included shampooing and rinsing in the general price, so you do not have to pay extra for this stage of cleaning. Usually cleaning companies add 10-15% to the total cost.

    The shampooing step takes about 20 minutes. Vacuuming is required before shampooing to remove dry debris and dust.

    Dry Carpet Cleaning (Encapsulation)

    Dry cleaning, also known as low moisture cleaning or encapsulation. This method is chemical cleaner based rather than water based and excels at the level of the surface`s top cleaning. This approach allows you to clean the carpet better than just using shampoo. But with strong contamination of the fibers, a deeper cleaning is needed like steam cleaning.

    The main advantage of dry cleaning carpets is that drying takes very little time, so you can use your carpet 20 minutes after cleaning.

    Bonnet Carpet Cleaning

    This is a budget cleaning method, the process is fast and takes only 30 minutes to dry completely. Cleaning is carried out using a powerful rotating pad, it polishes the surface of the carpet. However, only the top surface layer is cleaned. Dirt and debris that are in the lower layers eventually rise to the top, which requires re-treatment.

    Carbonated Cleaning

    Carbonized cleaning is a more careful method with hot water than steam cleaning. Much less water is used, so the risk of mold and mildew is greatly reduced, just like drying.

    Green Cleaning

    Professional green eco cleaning costs a little more.

    However, this process uses non-toxic and organic cleaning agents. These natural cleaners also act as disinfectants and last for a long time providing a long term carpet cleaning solution. Our experts apply natural cleaners with steam extractors, using manual and automatic brushes.

    Regular cleaning cost

    For residential carpet cleaning, we use a flat rate per room up to 250 square feet.

    The removal of each stain is calculated separately.

    Prices range from $15 to $40 per stain, depending on the size of the stain, how difficult it is to remove, and the cleaning supplies needed.

    Often, most stains go away with an enzyme prespray and hot water extraction.

    For more complex, ingrained stains, as well as those that were subjected to self-cleaning, but did not disappear, specialized tools and methods are used.

    Removing stains also takes extra time.

    There are stains that cannot be removed because they have already changed the structure of the carpet. We always warn the client about such a possibility.

    Carpet Cleaning Process

    Quite often, while providing our carpet cleaning services in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, we encounter nylon carpets in bedrooms, living rooms, stairs and even home offices.

    For standard non-natural nylon carpets, regular carpet cleaning (or refreshing) includes: vacuuming with a hepa filter, using an enzyme pre-spray, brushing, extract cleaning with hot or cold water, with the addition of a detergent that is pH neutral and completely safe for health.

    Step by step process:

    1. First of all, we use vacuum cleaner with HEPA filters in order to collect dust, dry soil and debris. Some types of pollution cannot be wetted, because this makes cleaning very difficult. Therefore, the stage of dry cleaning is mandatory.
    2. After removing top surface debris, we conduct a comprehensive assessment of carpets for stains, their durability, age and origin. The goal is to determine which cleansers are needed for each type of stain, as well as to identify stains that will be difficult or impossible to remove. 
    3. There are cases when the nature of pollution remains unidentified. Then we conduct an additional analysis – we determine its pH level using water and litmus paper. We remove alkaline stains with acidic products, and acidic stains, respectively, with alkaline products.
    4. In order to prevent damage to the surface, we are extremely careful in solving the problem of removing stains. Therefore, a preliminary test is carried out on an inconspicuous area of ​​​​the carpet to observe the reaction of the fabric and the stain to the selected cleaner.
    5. The next step is the use of an enzyme prespray, which consists of a high concentration of enzymes that dissolve stubborn fats, protein stains and other spots. It is applied to the carpet for 10-15 minutes in order to activate the work of enzyme particles that absorb dirt and lift it from the depths of the carpet.
    6. We continue the process with brushing, that is, we use an automatic brush. Brushing enhances the effectiveness of the prespray and removes dirt from the fibers and base of the carpet.
    7. To completely remove dirt and spray residue, we use a hot water extractor machine. Cold water is used less often, such cleaning is more gentle, but less effective.
    8. If the level of soiling is high and we see that after all the cleaning steps there is still dirt in the carpet, the main cleaner is used for a deeper cleaning. As in the previous step, we use an extractor machine.
    9. Next, we apply shampoo or conditioner, and rinse. This process is also performed by the extractor. Rinsing effectively removes dirt residues and all applied chemicals from the carpet fibers.
    10. And the final stage of our work is combing the carpet. As usual, at the end of cleaning, we scent the carpet with a spray or foam with a light fresh aroma.
    11. Drying. Carpet dries naturally. If you need to speed up drying, we recommend to owners turn the air conditioner to 74-77 degrees Fahrenheit or turn on the ceiling fans. The usual drying time is 12-24 hours. If cleaning was made with minimal water use, the drying time is shortened.

    Carpet cleaning in Cape Coral

    The cost of carpet cleaning in Cape Coral depends on many factors: the type of cleaning, the condition of the carpets, the level of soiling, the presence of stains, their origin and age, and the size of the room. Consider what cleaning was made earlier and how long ago.

    Professional carpet cleaning is carried out using special equipment and high-quality detergents that are safe for human and animal health. Such solutions are produced for cleaning companies, they are not freely available.

    It is impossible to produce high-quality carpet cleaning on your own without knowledge, experience, special equipment and additional detergents. The process is not easy and requires special knowledge and skills, especially in cases involving the removal of stains or other serious contamination. Home DIY cleaning does not guarantee a solution to the problem. In addition, in case of the wrong choice of cleaning products, or their incorrect use, you can ruin the carpet.

    Cleaning services will cost much less than a new carpet. Estimated prices for basic cleaning: regular cleaning for 1 room up to 250 square feet – $95, deep cleaning – $145. Assuming a pricing system similar to ours, the unit cost of a room will decrease with each additional room. You may need additional services that are usually not included in the basic price. For example, removing difficult stains ($15-40 per stain), moving furniture (about $20 per hour, one worker), cleaning the hall ($0.3 per square foot) and stairs ($1.5 per step).
