The steam cleaning carpet cost is determined by the size of the carpet. However, the average price is approximately $35/hr. If your carpet has stains that are hard to remove, you might be charged as high as $40/hr by your carpet cleaner.

Some experts charge $85 for a regular carpet cleaning job which involves sterilisation and deodorisation to get rid of all stains and spots.

A carpet cleaners cost per job is approximately $126 for their services. However, prices may vary. Below are a few reasons why carpet steam cleaning rates may vary.


How difficult is the job?


Carpets that have a lot of stains are difficult to clean. They may require a thorough cleaning, and this will cost more because it needs much more manual labour.


Size of the area that the carpet is placed

If you are cleaning carpet in a large room, it will be more expensive to clean than one in a smaller room. Covering all the area of a large room takes time, which will inevitably increases the cost.


The carpet fabric

It might be hard to clean carpets made of delicate materials that need extra care such as cotton. Cotton carpets have a brittle fabric and will need extra attention while cleaning to prevent damage.

Steam cleaning carpet costs differ according to state. You can get affordable carpet cleaning services in South Australia starting at $25/hr. In other areas such as Victoria, Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland carpet cleaners charge about $35/hr.
