The Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner is a carpet cleaner that isn’t as big as some of the professional carpet cleaners but promises to do just as good of a job. And while it might not be able to contend with some of the bigger models on the market, I’ve read quite a few carpet cleaner reviews that claimed this was a great unit. So with that in mind, I ordered one and put it to the test.
The very first thing that I noticed was that it didn’t require any assembly. I just took it out of the box, unfolded the handle and it was ready to be filled with water and solution and used. I also noticed that this unit was about half the weight of the professional units – which was a pleasant surprise to both me and my back.
It also came with a 28-foot power cord that gave me the reach I needed to do every carpet in my house. And that extra cord length, coupled with the smaller size of this unit, made the Deep Carpet Cleaner very easy to maneuver around the house.
As I used it on my carpets, I noticed that it did a pretty good cleaning job. With its dual cross action brushes and its “Super Spray Boost” was able to get just about any stain out of my carpets. While it might not be a heavy-duty cleaner, I found that it did more than an adequate job.
The only real problem I encountered while using these cleaner was that it I felt like I had to keep refilling the water tank to get my cleaning job done. I suppose that this is just a negative side-effect of having a smaller and more maneuverable unit. It’s easier to use but needs to be refilled more frequently.
And while I liked the 7-foot hose with upholstery tool for doing my furniture, I felt that the tool lacked suction – probably because it shared its suction with the main unit. A little bit of a disappointment but I wouldn’t call it a deal breaker.
All things considered, this carpet cleaner is a great unit. While it might not deliver professional quality cleaning, it comes really close to it and I imagine it would be a welcome tool in just about any home. If you’re looking for an easy to use, yet powerful carpet cleaner, then this one might be the one you’ll want to check out.
