First off it is important to realize that there are a great deal of variations between different kinds of carpet, different methods of carpet cleaning and different room sizes. There is no real way of saying exactly how much you should expect to pay when you hire professional carpet cleaners.
Some carpet cleaning companies will charge a flat per room fee, generally speaking to ensure that they stay profitable this method will include a cap on the size of the room, so if one room is larger than the cap they will consider it two rooms for the purpose of pricing. If you don’t have time and want things done for you, then the carpet cleaning company might be willing to move your furniture for you, but this is obviously going to cost you. If you want to keep your costs down then you should make arrangements to move everything out of the room yourself before hiring your professional Sydney carpet cleaners.
In general to give you a rough estimate you can expect to pay anywhere between $50 and $150 per room for carpet cleaning services, but this is a very rough estimate.
There are different methods when it comes to carpet cleaning and the method that you choose for your carpet floors or the method that the carpet cleaners suggest is going to either increase or decrease the cost of the job per room or per area.
The most common and most popular way to clean carpets is via steam cleaning. This method of carpet cleaning uses high pressure to push hot water into the carpet along with shampoo. This removes the dirt and cleans the carpet, afterward the soaking wet carpet is vacuumed and the carpet is left moist. This moisture will require at least a day to fully dry maybe more if the air is stagnant.
If you need immediate cleaning because let’s say something was spilled and you’re having people over, you can get an emergency dry cleaning and this will (not work as well) but will remove dirt and stains and allow for minimal drying time as a requirement.
These are the general costs associated with getting your carpets cleaned professionally, but there may be some additional costs to consider, but they would be situational. Make sure to ask the company you hire for written quotes upfront, don’t ever accept a quote verbally.
You have to be your own best advocate.
