Renting a Rug Doctor – Good Idea? Sedona AZ

Thinking of renting a Rug Doctor machine from the supermarket? THINK AGAIN!  I assume most of my readers here really do not clean rugs on a regular basis and do not have a strong understanding of the fibers, the structures, etc.  In other words, you really don’t know what the proper care is for your rug.

So at best, it will be complete luck if you successfully clean your rug without causing damage.  And since you have opted to read this article, I assume you were having your doubts anyway. So let’s look at the whole picture….. then you decide what is best for your rug AND FOR YOU!

What kind of damage might you cause? Here is an abbreviated list just off the top of my head:


Dye bleed

Musty 0dors

Brown discoloration do to over wetting the rug

Rapid resoiling caused by soap residue that the smaller powered rental machines cannot extract

Other reasons to factor in why renting a Rug Doctor may not be a good idea:

Using a rental machine that has been WHO KNOWS WHERE and what contaminates comes with it

The challenge of renting the Rug Doctor and then loading and unloading into your vehicle, the water dripping all over,the hoses, the bulky unit

The expense of renting the Rug Doctor PLUS the added expense of cleaning solution, deodorizers, pet urine neutralizers, etc.

Your time (Good-bye Saturday!) Pick it up, read instructions, perform the work, clean up the messy unit you rented to make it presentable for returning, drag back to the store and deal with the counter person

And last BUT NOT LEAST - Your back pain!
