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.
