What Affects the Price of Carpet Cleaning
A number of things can cause the cost of your carpet cleaning to increase. For example the specific material is always important.
What material are your carpets made from?
There are three main categories and types of carpeting. The first is Berber. This is the easiest to clean and as such usually carries a much lower price tag. The second most common type is cut and level loop. This is classified as a medium level type of carpeting material and is slightly more difficult and time consuming to clean, resulting in a higher rice most of the time. The most difficult carpets to clean are the more costly and premium grade wool and cotton. It can be a challenge to clean these and that’s why you will be charged more for these types of rugs or carpets.
Are there any stairs to be cleaned?
As you can imagine, cleaning steps is much trickier and takes more time. This is not typically included in a fixed price quote. Most of the time its priced separately. The number of stair cases, and how many steps specifically will affect the price you get charged.
What caused the stains in your rug or carpet?
Some stains can be quite stubborn, especially if they are from red wine, blood, ink or pet accidents. The longer the stain has been there will also effect the difficulty of removing it. These issues will all cause your quote to increase.
Is their furniture in the rooms?
Most Dublin carpet cleaning companies won’t move any furniture in your room, they will simply clean around it. This is due to insurance reasons. Possibly a cleaning tech could get injured trying to move some heavy furniture or the item could be damaged while being moved. Carpet cleaning companies want to avoid these possibilities and as such you will be required to do any moving yourself. However if you live alone, cannot lift a piece of furniture on your own and really need it moved, some exceptions can be made. Of course you will expected to pay for the extra time it adds.
Are you in an office or apartment?
Of course the price will change depending on whether this is a residential or commercial carpet cleaning. But further than that, if you require cleaning in a building without an elevator, the price will either be higher or you wont be able to get any carpet cleaning done at all!
Carpet Cleaner Costs Per Square Foot
A common way for local carpet cleaning companies to charge, is by the square foot. This is much better for you as a homeowner, than being charged by the hour. The average price per square foot is usually around €0.20. But can range from as low as €0.10 to as high as €0.30 per square foot.
Price For Cleaning Carpets Per Room
Sometimes you don’t need to have your entire home cleaned and as such you may want to control the costs by ordering on a per room basis. Many carpet cleaners are more than happy to do this. The average price per cleaning one bedroom is €40. However there are a few things to note. Firstly a large room like a sitting room might be closer to €60 or even €80. Secondly, many companies will have minimum charges of around €50. So you will need to order a cleaning of more than one room usually.
What are the carpet cleansing prices based on each different method
here are a number of different methods used to clean carpets. We will detail them below and indicate what the price differences are of each.
Steam cleaning carpets
The most common and most highly sought after carpet cleaning method is steam cleaning. This will get deep into the individual fibres of your carpets and rugs, removing tough and stubborn stains. Bit it also kills dust mites, including any eggs, and removes pollen, dander and mould. Typically it will kill over 99% of all germs and bacteria. It is useful for even the most stubborn of stains too. An added benefit is the fact that, as it uses steam and a powerful suction device, the drying time is much faster. Allowing you to walk on it again sooner.
This is less common method and that’s largely because it uses a large volume of water and can make your rugs and carpets very wet indeed. This can result in long drying times or even damage to your carpets backing, if an inexperienced cleaner is using the machine. If a carpet is very heavily soiled this might be a viable option.
Carpet dry cleaning
Despite the name, this method still uses some water. After the special dry cleaning solvent and water have been added to your carpet, it is then vacuumed up. This is very common for use in places like hotels as it requires minimum drying time and can be carried out quickly. It’s not usually recommended for houses though as it can leave behind a strong chemical smell and is typically not family or pet safe.
Commercial carpet cleaning costs
Many companies eager to get the regular, dependable contract work of commercial clients, will give large discounts on their service. This is also due to the surface areas being much larger than that of a typical home. You can likely get a company to clean your office carpeting for 10c a square foot.
