If your carpets are looking pretty gross, you may know that they need cleaning, but cleaning takes effort and many of us do not have the time for it. We all have our busy lives to deal with and no one can say that tomorrow will be a great day for carpet cleaning with a rental machine. However, there are also people who do not want to pay a small fortune for a carpet cleaner that they will only use a few times a year. Therefore, many people choose the easiest option; hire a professional carpet cleaner to come in and do it for you. In theory, this may sound like a great idea. Your carpets get cleaned and you get to continue doing all the things you have to do, outside of your carpet.
The thing is, if you require the company to move your furniture, they will charge you more for cleaning. They will also charge you more if you only need one room cleaned and they may charge you more if you have too much of a home to clean or not enough. In short, there is no one size fits all when it comes to a professional carpet cleaning service and you may still have to put in your fair share of work to get it done.
A professional cleaner is not going to want to work around the furniture in your home. Therefore, you must move the furniture before they arrive. Ideally, you will move it to another room that you do not plan on them cleaning.
From there, the average price you will pay may vary depending on a lot of things. If you only have one small room cleaned, they may charge you more for taking up their time and equipment for such a small job. However, a large home or several rooms is also going to cost you because it will take up so much of their time in that day and that means they will be able to visit fewer homes. The same can be said for a small room versus a larger room that may actually be counted as two separate rooms in one.
In some areas, you could pay $50 per room that you want to be cleaned. Other areas may charge $150 per room. This means that it also depends on where you live and how much of a demand there is for a carpet cleaning service. In short, if you want to know an exact price for your home, you may have to call someone local and then attempt to find a service that is perhaps having a sale on their services.
