There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It was a little more pricey than others, but I have rented Rug Dr. brand shampooers in the past, and have always been impressed with them. Their reputation convinced me to spend a little more, purchase the Asurion warranty, and have no regrets.
There is one flaw about the design-the water containers don't stand upright on their own while filling/filled. Considering all the other built-in conveniences of this otherwise well designed machine, I can live with that.
Rug Doctor versus Bissel - I read all the reviews and decided to get the Rug Doctor based on more suction power, a wider upholstery cleaning head, the brush that can be turned on and off (nice to buff up carpet on the stairs), and the fact that the water spray is below the suction, so you can actually see where it is going - super handy on cushions!
This is not a review for the cleaning solution, I haven't used it yet. I had to return my rental before I could rinse my stairs, so the first thing I did was fill the Rug Doctor with clean water and rinse my stairs. It did a great job - and I had my first ever "clean swath" moment on that difficult step lip that never seems to get clean, thanks to the suction window (see below). I also sprayed Resolve foam on my couch cushion with the funny water spot, rubbed it in, let it set for five minutes, and rinsed the cushion three times, and it came clean.
Pros: the clear window on the attachment that lets you see bubbles and dirt (this makes it SO easy to tell if you have rinsed enough, or need to go over again with a rinse or more soap) The wheels, pull handle, and lift handle - I have fragile joints and a lot of pain, so this machine is perfect for mobility. True, it's not built like it would have been even ten years ago, but if I am careful the plastic should last. The cord and hose wrap up nicely. It looks adorable. It stores easily. It cleans easily. It also empties easily. Note: even after reading all the reviews, I still spilled dirty water the first time, albeit on my counter - please note that the dirty water tank has a hole at the top that is ALWAYS OPEN, not just the bottom hole, which is only opened when cleaning for storage. I didn't see it at first. That made me laugh. It is very easy to dump the dirty water because you don' have to take a lid off. Smart idea.
Cons: It could use a longer cord. My have 16 steps to my stairs, with an outlet at top and bottom. I could only clean 10 stairs before having to unplug and replug. It does sit nicely on the stairs tho, and is easy to move from step to step while working. The biggest design flaw, in my opinion, is the clean water tank. No, it does not sit flat for filling, which would be nice, but I measure my cleaner instead of using fill lines, so not a huge issue. My issue is the only opening in this tank is the one on the bottom that feeds the machine - it has a nice tight rubber seal, much like a blender. Because I rinse a lot, I fill with clean water a ton. It would be SO much easier it there was an opening on the top (much like the dirty water) where I could keep adding fresh rinsing water, rather than tug the jug out of its fitting and then take that sealed lid off. Just a thought, Rug Doctor!
HINT: If you lose suction, empty the dirty water. Once it hits about 70% full, suction disappears. If your water won't spray, you have dirt in the line - rinse the jug and intake, keep trying, and the spray will come back!

If its a large spill (like a mug of coffe), I start by vacuuming up the excess liquid before using a well placed button to dispense the carpet cleaning solution. I then go over it a few more times to lift the 'stain' out of the carpet. You can go over the stain as many times as you like with cleaning solution but it will make the carpet soggy, so either draw up as much wetness as you can before reapply otherwise you'll have a long drying time.
It absolutely works. I have two sick cats and a baby and was forever using spray or mousse carpet cleaners. It deals with larger spills well but is not large enough to clean a whole room.
However... the tanks are infuriating. The soap tank needs to be filled by turning it upside down. Once you've replaced the cap (which has a hole in it to allow the cleaning solution out), you need to shove it back in the machine without leaking cleaning solution everywhere. When I come to empty it, the bottom of the tank is slightly concaved so it's almost impossible to get it completely empty. I don't suppose it matters much, but it seems like a silly design flaw. The dirty water tank has the opposite issue, in that I can't get in there properly to give it a good rinse.
The nozzle is small, not impossibly small and good for little nooks and stairs, but the option of something just a little larger would have been good. However, there's a jet just above the nozzle which dispenses the cleaning solution. It doesn't seem to apply it directly to the area I'm cleaning, but off to one side. I've taken to holding the nozzle up and to one side to apply the solution to where I want it to go, rather than in one fluid movement, applied as I vacuum.
I wish I'd bought one of these a long time ago, however I wouldn't buy this one again

The unit feels cheaply made - like a chunky plastic child's toy. It isn't particularly light and boy is it ugly and loud. So so loud I had to wear earplugs when using it.
It cleans pretty well though - I will say that. Not brilliantly - but does a fair job. However, it is backbreaking work if you do anything other than a small area. My hand was killing me afterwards.
Too many flaws here - returned in the end.
A couple of tips when using. #1 Make sure you use only the designated solution and NOT the standard Rug Doctor carpet cleaner. #2 Just apply pressure to the front of the head whilst using on carpet pile so that it gets a good suction. That's it! This is a brilliant machine and I have 100% confidence in not only using it but recommending it.
