What does professional carpet cleaning cost and include?

It's easy to forget that out carpets might need a clean and I know I never have the time to spend on doing them... That's when a professional will come in handy.

I have quite a dark carpet so it's easy to forget that on a daily basis there is 4 people walking over it and our lovely furbaby... all of which will definitely make our carpets dirty, especially after the winter months have been!

I know that with the current cost of living being unstable we are all watching our penny’s but as with all our investments… sometime it’s better to clean than have to replace. But before you spend any money, you want to know how much professional carpet cleaning will cost and what the cost includes.

I will explain what we do and cover:

  1. Our prices and how we would quote it.
  2. What difference is there between a premium and lower-end cleaning company?
  3. How we clean your carpet from start to finish.
  4. Some of our dedicated Customers and what they think.
  5. Some questions for you and the professional you choose.

So, let’s begin with the most crucial part:

1. What a professional carpet clean will cost:

We are a premium carpet cleaning company that started in 2005. 

To read more about us, click here.

Our prices will  depend on:

  • Size of the room.
  • If you want a Clean Only.
  • If you want the Clean & Protect.

The one thing we do make people very aware of is we do have a minimum charge of £150.

That is the minimum we would charge no matter how small the room.

2. What difference is there between a premium and lower-end cleaning company?

The premium cleaning companies:

  • They will seem quite expensive
  • They will have all the newest and top-of-the-range equipment.
  • They have generally been around a long time, so they know so much about cleaning your carpet in the best way possible.
  • If they are like us, they will have a passion to give their customers the most outstanding service possible.

The lower-end cleaning companies:

  • They will be a lot cheaper
  • They may not have top-of-the-range equipment.
  • They usually have less experience as they have just started.

3. What a professional carpet clean will include:

At Art of Clean, we have Clean Only: 9 Steps and Clean & protect: 10 steps.

The complete ten steps are: 

  • Step 1: High filtration vacuuming
  • Step 2: Moving the furniture (We like to have as little stress on the customer as possible)
  • Step 3: Pre-treat stains
  • Step 4: Heavy-duty pre-spray
  • Step 5: Hot water extraction
  • Step 6: Residue rinse
  • Step 7: Protective tabs
  • Step 8: Grooming
  • Step 9: Fabric protector
  • Step 10: Dry thoroughly

Resulting condition of carpet was noticeably cleaner and fresher than before. A job well done by the operator who was also very pleasant and happy to discuss the service performed as well as any precautions to take before replacing items of furniture.

I would recommend Art of Clean to anyone wanting a high quality, professional job done. They have cleaned carpets for me, and furniture in the past, including an antique Chesterfield, and always to the same quality standard. They have done work for me since 2011, even on a very large stain on one carpet that appeared to be beyond redemption – but it wasn’t! I wouldn’t use anyone else for any cleaning job, their standards are superb. The company is totally professional in their approach, punctual and meticulously tidy, but also highly accessible, approachable, unflappable and friendly – and they never pressure-sell anything. Thank you, Mark, who came today, and Art of Clean.for looking after me so well for so long.

5. Here are some questions for you to consider when choosing a professional, and ask them.


  • How much is a fantastic carpet clean worth to you?
  • How long has the company you choose been trading?
  • Are all their team fully trained?
  • Do all their team do regular training to update all their skills?
  • Do they offer a 100% money-back guarantee?
  • Are they environmentally friendly? 
  • What makes them the best one for you to choose?
  • Are their reviews good?
