Professional Carpet Cleaning Cost

Owner Operated.If you have never had your carpet cleaned in Dallas, you might be at a loss as to how much you should expect to pay for this service. It doesn’t hep when you see advertised carpet cleaning prices that are all over the map. You will find carpet cleaners in Dallas advertising prices anywhere from $10 to $60 per room. So how much should you pay for carpet cleaning? The answer is somewhere in between and here is why.

Avoid the lowest bidder.

The lowest bidder in carpet cleaning never intends to charge the lowest price. They use “bait and switch” pricing techniques to get your attention. You might see a price advertised, $9.95 a room or 5 rooms for $59.95, for example. This price sounds great but it does not include everything. You will soon find out that they charge extra fore pre-treating the carpet and charge you per spot to remove them. To top it off, they typically charge per square foot for these “extras”. So, to pre-treat your 200 square foot room, it will cost you an additional $50  at 25 cents per square foot.  Now, you are looking at $60 a room to have your carpet cleaned.

In addition to all of this, they know that you are mad at this point. After all, you now find yourself paying 6 times the original price. They know you will not be calling them back, so they have little interest in doing quality work. They just want to get in and out as quickly as possible so that they can move on to the next victim.

Watch out for the highest bidder.

So, why not just go right to the top and pay for the most expensive and therefore best carpet cleaning. Well, it may not be the best, it may just be that the carpet cleaner is very busy and has started to price gouge. As an independent owner and operator, if you get very busy and you do not want to expand, you are left with one choice, raise your prices. So that $60 per room carpet cleaning might just really be a $40 a room carpet cleaning wrapped in a much larger price tag.

So, how much should you pay?

Look for a price somewhere in the middle and, most importantly, make sure that it includes everything that is needed for a cleaning. Every carpet will need vacuuming, pre-treatment and spot cleaning at a minimum. Our price includes all of these things as well as light furniture moving and speed drying.

We have used James for the past three years. He is always on time, professional, and through. We have recommended him to multiple people and will continue to use him in the future.

James just left my house and my carpets look like new! I thought that my carpets were beyond saving. Yesterday I even had my house quoted for new carpet. I called James from sticker shock at the new carpet price. I figured that I would "try" to clean my carpets. I have a $400 home steam cleaner and it wasn't even putting a dent in the spots. My carpets are 8 years old and we have a ton of preschoolers in the house every day along with two dogs. I chose Carlson Carpets because he uses natual products and has a flat fee. I hate it when companies bait me with a good price and then try to tack on a bunch of fees for this spot here and that spot there. It took James a little over an hour and they look new. I feel like he just saved me thousands! Thanks James!

Mr. Carlson has cleaned my carpets 4 times now. When he leaves they look like new. He is the owner and the lead technician. He is very efficient, pleasant and the price is more than reasonable. I would recommend this company to anyone!! Also, Mr. Carlson is the type of person you could go outside to get your mail or to talk to a neighbor and not have to worry about a thing being missing when you return - unlike so many companies, today. Top notch service - top notch results! Also, I wanted to add: I have pets who have accidents and teenage kids in and out of the house. No problem is too big for Carlson!

Very good experience. I scheduled my appointment on their website, got a confirmation, and then everything went as the online system said. The company emailed me the day before to confirm again, and called the day of to give me a 30-minute heads-up. The owner did my job himself and he was very professional.

James called on his way to let me know when he would be there and he arrived promptly. He was very professional and finished the work quickly and efficiently. I called at 8pm and left a message with a question and he called me back within 5 minutes.

I had a great experience using them last week. James called in advance and showed up right on time. As this was my first carpet cleaning, James was patient and accommodating to my requests.
