For those of you looking to get into carpet and upholstery cleaning, renting a machine may be an option for those on a tight budget.
The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 can be rented for less than $30 (solutions are additional) in some locations, making it a budget friendly choice if you want to clean a house full of carpet.
I priced renting the Rug Doctor at a location near me and the pricing worked like this: It was $29.99 to rent the carpet cleaning unit itself. If you wanted the stair tool, which doubled as the upholstery tool, then that added an extra $4.99.
The rental was good for 24 hours. If you wanted an extra day that was $10 more. You also needed the cleaning solution that gets added to the unit and that was $18.99. This brought the total cost to between $48.98 to $63.97 depending upon what your needs were.
That’s not too bad considering you can easily charge several hundred bucks to clean a house full of carpet. Adding in the stairs or any upholstery will up the price even more. I’ve had jobs over $1000 in a residential environment. So I know it can be done. And if I can, YOU CAN too.
The Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 (with pet package) available for purchase over at Amazon for those who want to own a new unit instead of renting one that may be kind of beat up looking. The Rug Doctor X3 costs less than $400, which isn’t a bad price for a unit with such good reviews (nearly a 5 star rating with over 400 plus reviews).
Renting a Rug Doctor may not be the perfect choice for everyone out there, but for those new to the carpet cleaning industry it allows you an affordable option for getting your feet wet cleaning carpet and upholstery. If you decide to get one, let me know what you think!
