There are a lot of DIYers out there, and the carpet cleaning side of things is no different. I get it, I do lot of work on my house myself in order to save money. While rental carpet cleaning machines like Rug Doctors certainly do a better job than vacuuming and they do have their place, there are many things they can't do. Below is a list of a few of the differences between hiring a professional carpet cleaner in the Edmonds area and renting a Rug Doctor.
- Rug Doctors don't allow for dwell time, which is a key component of the cleaning process for carpet, upholstery, and tile
- Rug Doctors don't clean as deep, as they only have up to 28 psi, while we run at about 350-400 psi for carpet, and up to 1000 psi for tile.
- The extraction on a professional hot water extraction carpet cleaning machine is much more powerful, typically at 20+ horsepower, while Rug Doctors have 1.74 horsepower.
