People often don’t know what is the fair price for hiring professional cleaners to deep clean their home carpet. This is why we decided to summarise the approximate values for carpet cleaning according to specific aspects like the size of the carpet and type of service.
What Are the Average Carpet Cleaning Prices in London?
It isn’t easy to give an average price for carpet cleaning in London simply because there are a lot of companies providing the service and therefore – a lot of different prices and tariffs. Many homes still have wall-to-wall carpets instead of wood floors and tiles. This is why it’s not a big surprise that many professionals specialise in this service. The most common pricing method is charging the client per size or per type of the room with the carpet. This is why it is natural that on many services’ websites, the prices are given per area – bedroom, living room, hallway etc. Often the price of carpet cleaning on the website is based on the average size of the room.
It is fair to pay around £25.00 for a double bedroom, but some professional carpet cleaning services have even lower prices for the same area. You can check this pricing list as a guideline for average costs when comparing different tariffs. However, it is good to keep in mind, that the price can be a bit lower or higher, depending on the size of the room and the condition of your carpet.
|Area||Area size||Average Price|
|Single room||Approx. 7 ft. x 7 ft.||£ 20.00-25.00|
|Double Bedroom||Approx. 8 ft. x 10 ft.||£25.00-30.00|
|Living Area / Lounge||Approx. 10 ft. x 12 ft.||£30.00-40.00|
What Do You Get For Your Money?
It is good to know that the most common carpet cleaning procedure called hot water extraction, includes these 4 basic steps:
- Thorough vacuuming with professional grade equipment.
- Pre-treating the carpet in order to remove stains and loosen the dirt.
- Extracting the solution with powerful vacuum
- Grooming carpet with brush to set its pile in one direction
When you compare the prices of different carpet cleaning providers, make sure the company uses high-quality cleaning tools, supplies, and equipment.
4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring Carpet Cleaning Professionals
A higher price for cleaning services doesn’t always indicate a higher quality of work. When comparing different companies, their prices for carpet cleaning jobs, it is a good idea to call and ask the following 4 questions:
- Is the company providing all the necessary cleaning supplies and equipment?
- Do they include VAT and other taxes in the final price?
- Are company’s employees certified and vetted professionals?
- Does the company provide a cleaning guarantee for their service?
All these things can give a better idea if the prices your see on the website are fair, are there hidden costs, and if it’s worth working with this carpet cleaning service. Take in mind, that if you book professionals for dealing with two or more rugs, in most cases, you can get a reasonable discount on the final bill.
