has anybody renting that big thing and tried it out? I need to get about 1800 sqft of carpets cleaned -- pros want $.35 a sqft which I think is a bit high. I wouldn't mind putting the time in myself if it worked - but wanted to check with you guys to see if it did so I don't get screwed twice

how much them shits cost? like 19.95? prolly like 13 or so doll hairs from wallyworld plus that? thats about how much it costs...unless u want to add water(prolly like 1 dollar tops)

.35*1800=? idk like $670? but how much is carpet? lets say .35*1200=$450? thats still high

they work ok...probably better than the thing i got but mine does an ok jerb

he's comparing the cost of the rug doctor to the cost of having the carpets cleaned

I used it just to do 3 bedrooms, I thought it did an OK job, but it was a huge pain. The water runs out really fast, and you have to dump it out, mix up the solution, fill it up again. I took FOREVER!! 1800 sq foot...plan on it taking HOURS and HOURS!! Plus you will need a couple bottles of that solution which is quite expensive.

i will agree that the tank runs out probably every 5 minutes. you're looking at about 40 bucks including the cleaner to do that size house. its a decent job. if you have new carpet and want it looking good again, go the pro route, if the carpet is 5+ years old, go with the rug doctor

^kinda true...my suggestion would be going the rug doctor route, and if you are not satisfied, go the pro route

Like the others have said, it is decent for what it is. It took my wife and I a day to do about 900 sq ft of carpet, 2 rugs and 2 couches. That being said, get the wand if you plan on doing any furniture. It would be a pain without it.

split the difference and buy a real rug shampooer

more expensive than a rug doctor, cheaper than the pros

plus you have it available if you ever want to use it again

^that's what I did. we have cats, so I typically shampoo the carpets about 4 times a year. It was well worth the investment, and the machine isn't nearly as nasty as rentals tend to be.

Four times a year?

May I come eat off of your carpet sometime?

Sorry, just thinking of my bf's roomies who clean maybe once a year, and have three big dogs. I don't walk through the living room without socks or shoes.

my allergies start causing me serious problems if I don't clean the carpets that often. My next house will definitely have tile or hardwood floors.

For what it costs to rent it is a great deal. Before we moved out of our last place the carpets were disgusting. We put in a couple hours with the rug doctor and the carpet looked like new when we were done.
