We all know how unattractive dirty carpets can be. And yet, they are unavoidable to some extent since carpets take so much abuse from spills and stains. What can you do about this? For a long time, I relied on professional carpet cleaners. They brought along big, noisy machines but in the end, they did not do a good job of cleaning the carpet.
That all changed when I was at the supermarket and noticed a machine referred to as the Rug Doctor. Mostly out of sheer curiosity, I chose to rent the machine and take it home for a spin. The cost was reasonable, somewhere between 20 and 30 dollars for 24 hours of rental time. I also bought a bottle of cleaning solution to be used with the unit. Since it runs on wheels and is relatively small, it was no problem to roll the machine out to my car.
I wasted no time when I got home, and poured in the solution and got started right away. I was pleased to see that the Rug Doctor was a cinch to operate. All you do is pull it over the carpet area you want to clean. It is not unlike using an ordinary vacuum. In about an hour or two, my carpets were all clean. The cleaning job was terrific, and honestly better than the results I got from professionals.
Since I rent the Rug Doctor 2 or 3 times a year, it can be a hassle. My next step is to purchase a machine myself. You can use Rug Doctor Coupons from various websites and receive up to $100 off of a purchase. Once I have the money saved up, I will purchase a Rug Doctor because owning a machine will save me money in the long run.
