Rug Doctor?

I did 6 rooms and hall/stairs/landing with a rug dr recently. It's heavy and needs emptied and fresh detergent put in every few mins but was totally worth it. smile takes a while for carpets to dry so bear that in mind- we moved out for the weekend!

Thank you, I'll go for the Rug Doctor then! StuckOnARollercoaster, that's exactly what I want RD to do - Make the carpet look and feel cleaner. If I can do it without paying someone else, so much the better!

I've used them and they do the job well.
I was mightily unimpressed with professional carpet cleaners - most were unwilling to give any kind of quote without coming round, and I expect submitting me to a hard sell. To get some idea of their cost I did let one come round and he ended up quoting me £250 for a 2 bedroom flat (and it was a pressured hard sell all about how crap rug doctors are).
The carpet was not in a terrible state and I don't have money to burn, so I got a rug doctor for I think £25 plus a bit more for the detergent and it looked brilliant afterwards. Perhaps there is a difference and a professional clean would have gone that step further, but to be honest I didn't need that - I needed it to feel and look cleaner and that's what the rug doctor did.

Any experiences of hiring a rug doctor machine? The carpet I want to use it on is in good condition with no major staining or anything, it's just looking a little grubby and in need of a freshen up. Would hiring a rug doctor be the best option for something like this, or is it worth hiring someone to come and clean the carpets professionally?
