  • Just What the Doctor Ordered

    Oct 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, cleans great.
    Cons: A lot of work.

    Summary: We all know the feeling. Those precious carpets of ours so pristine and beautiful. It almost seems a shame to walk on them after all, but we know we have to. We can demand everyone take their shoes off at the door, banish snacks and drinks from the ... read more

  • It does what it says, Cleans Carpets!

    Jul 25, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Really cleans carpet.
    Easy to use.
    Excellent warranty.
    Cons: More costly that most machines.

    Summary: Our home has light colored carpets and everytime I turn around we have a spot or stain on the carpet thanks to the puppy and my elderly mother living with us! My wife purchased a Bissell cleaner and the carpets were cleaned about once every two months ... read more

  • Very Good Product

    Oct 11, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: works great, versatile, built to commercial standards, five year warranty
    Cons: heavy, finding a Rug Doctor service center

    Summary: I purchased my Rug Doctor at Kohls for about 1/3 off retail.  For this price, the Rug Doctor is a stupendous value.  Often you get what you pay for.  It is a well built durable machine designed to last for many years.  In addition to ... read more

  • First carpet cleaning, first time Rug Doctor user...

    Aug 3, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, excellent results, low rental cost.
    Cons: Somewhat heavy and bulky to maneuver about.

    Summary: I'm ashamed to say that I've lived in my apartment, which had originally been equipped with new carpet, for 7 years without deep cleaning it.  The original carpet color was of a blond hue, but after 7 years of traffic and neglect much of it had ... read more

  • Rug Doctor Carpet Shampooer and the Floor Wand

    Nov 23, 2009 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Cleans well.   The floor wand is WONDERFUL!
    Cons: Too heavy, hard to clean stairs, doesn't clean close to furniture

    Summary: After using the older style Rug Doctor (the one with the wand that you use to clean the carpet instead of moving the whole machine back and forth) for many years, I saved up and finally bought the Rug Doctor Mighty Pro - I have cats and live in the ... read more

  • The Great Rug Doctor

    Jun 6, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It gets your carpet like brand new.
    Cons: It is time consuming, and you have to put in a lot of hard work.

    Summary: I rented a Rug Doctor to clean my carpets.  I thought that it would be a really easy and quick job after looking at their advertisements.  I thought I was renting one for only one day and that I will be done very quick.  After bring home ... read more

  • A Consumer Product that Actually Works, and Quite Well

    May 26, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Better than a professional cleaning. 
    Cons: A little pricey if you buying one, but still, worth the money.  

    Summary: I have rented a rug doctor for years, usually every six months, to clean my carpets.  Three years ago, I took a break from my law practice to care for my elderly father, since I couldn't bring myself to put him in a nursing home.  He ... read more

  • Better than consumer models

    Dec 21, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Cleans better than consumer units.  Good suction.
    Cons: Akward bar that holds water tank in place makes frequent refills a nuisance. 

    Summary: I saw the informercials and was intrigued but I wasn't willing to spend that kind of money without trying it first.  I have a Hoover carpet cleaner that works acceptably, but I had high expections for this unit. So I went over to the local Ace ... read more

  • Rug Doctor from Falls Vac

    Dec 14, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: After my experience with Falls & Rug Doctor, I have nothing good to say
    Cons: The warranty support is terrible, the machine does not perform like they advertise. Its heavy.

    Summary: I purchased a Mighty Pro from Falls Vac after viewing the commercial on TV. Once I received the machine, I read the directions and went over my carpet. I was really disappointed in the performance. It left so many stains and left the carpet very wet. I ... read more

  • Close to a "Professional Clean"

    Nov 8, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans the deepest stains and traffic areas, even on white carpet.
    Cons: You have to do the work yourself and it's too expensive to buy one. ($500+)

    Summary: Now granted, you have to do the work yourself, but the results will amaze you. I'm kind of kicking myself because I bought a Hoover duel V that literally fell apart within a year (light/occassional usage-various plastic pieces simply broke, without any ... read more

  • Love this product - will never pay for "professional" cleaning again!

    Feb 25, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: superior cleaning, ability to clean anything and everything fabric, affordable rental price
    Cons: expensive to buy, large/heavy

    Summary: I have been a devotee of Stanley Steemer in the past. I like a clean floor (it's kind of an obsession of mine, I'll admit). Anyway, with 3 kids, 2 cats, and a husband my beige carpets take a beating. So, I used to pay several hundred dollars a year ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Easy to use right out of the box, powerful
    Cons: The handle doesn't pull back it is permanantly upright. That was hard at first.

    Summary: Just bought this machine and it is great. I have a Bissell and used it, then bought this machine and used it after the Bissell. I hated the Bissell, it never seemed to get the carpet clean, and with the clear plastic on the front where the suction ... read more

  • Infomercial Deceptive Pricing/Refunds

    Jan 2, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: carpet was cleaner
    Cons: wet carpet, brushes left lines in the carpet, lot of work, marketing very deceptive

    Summary: I ordered the machine new with the understanding that by paying roughly $100 the shipping was included free. If I returned the machine, I would pay for return shipping only and my initial cost would be fully refunded. Surprise, they charged me for ... read more

  • Rog Doctor Pro, I'm Happy with it.

    Dec 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, easy to use, cleans very well, left carpet very dry.
    Cons: Preferred wide model, but price difference too great. Cord is stiff.

    Summary: For many years, I used to rent a Castex carpet cleaning machine from the local tool rental place. The owner used to give a good deal, pick-up friday afternoon, return early monday morning, and only charged one day's rental. Then he got greedy, started ... read more

    Oct 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: -- Best cleaning machine -- True one pass maintenance cleaning -- Quality construction
    Cons: -- Price

    Summary: In the past 11 years, I have owned 2 Hoover steam-vac machines and 3 Bissell Pro-Heat machines. A few days ago, the dog had an accident in the house and when I pulled out the Bissell to clean it up, the bladder inside the tank sprung a leak. I stopped ... read more

    Pros: Fresh, like new carpet
    Cons: there is a bit of work involved:)

    Summary: Dogs are amazing creatures who become more than a best friend. They actually demonstrate all of the basic elements of a baby or young child except for the fact that you don’t need Pampers, pacifiers or formula. Well, actually, I have had dogs who I ... read more

  • First Aid for your Carpets

    Sep 1, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Cost if buying

    Summary: I just bit the bullet and bought a Rug Doctor Mighty Pro. They can be quite spendy, but I figured it would pay for itself in 2 uses compared to the cost of professional carpet cleaning. I also had a coupon, and the store was offering a promotion that ... read more

    Pros: IT WORKS and without problems, easy to use, affordable to rent.
    Cons: The numerous trips you will make to keep refilling the tank.

    Summary: Phew, where do I start? First off, our carpets have not been cleaned in 2.5 years, we have 1 toddler, 1 preteen, and a cat. Not to mention, I also watch another toddler and our carpets are beige (you know that cheap apartment type carpet?) So they ... read more

    Cons: It is expensive It is kind of heavy

    Summary: I was up late one night and I saw the Rug Doctor Infomercial and I thought if what they are showing is true it would save me a lot of time. I have had 3 carpet machines before I purchased the Mighty Pro. The first one I had was a Bissell and I used if ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Awesome Cleaner, Power, Flexibility, Ease of usage
    Cons: Carpet stay wet for some time, Expensive solutions

    Summary: I want to start off by saying that I saw the infomercial at about 2:00am when I could not sleep. My family is getting ready to sell our house and our carpets are really bad with any stains and spills from the last seven years. I have had a professional ... read more

  • Rug Doctor - Your prescription for clean carpets! (ha, that was cheesy)

    Sep 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans the carpet well, inexpensive to rent, optional furniture attachment
    Cons: Doesn't heat water, the schmuck who rented it before might have left it dirty

    Summary: Small children ruin everything. This destruction comes from shoes, food, drinks, and various body fluids that the children are not supposed to spill. The main target of this abuse is usually the carpet. When we bought our house, we got cheap carpet. ... read more
