Life with a toddler, two cats and a dog sure is hectic, and also quite messy! Add house renovations and a rather clumsy me into the mixture and I’m sure you can imagine that our poor carpets and upholstery are in dire need of cleaning. Thankfully, we were recently sent a Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner* and a few cleaning products to put to the test.

Chances are you have already heard of Rug Doctor, most supermarkets have heavy duty Rug Doctor machines available to hire. What you may not know if that they also sell a range of products to purchase and keep in your home, including the Deep Carpet Cleaner.
The Deep Carpet Cleaner is a two in one machine, with a separate attachment for cleaning upholstery, stairs and even your car. The main machine tilts and pushes along to clean your carpets efficiently and quickly. The machine releases water and detergent which is scrubbed into your carpet using the powerful dual cross brushes. The powerful suction removes moisture from the carpet, dramatically reducing drying time and picking up the dirty, grimy water.
We decided to first test the machine in our bedroom, the carpet is only around six months old but has gone through a lot. There were several stains on the carpet including make-up and puppy training accidents. As the carpet was quite highly stained we turned the machine onto super boost spray mode to give it that extra cleaning power. The stains were removed quickly and easily, and the carpets were left looking and smelling fresh. The machine, now full of dirty, black water, made me realise just how important regular carpet cleaning is. Despite the fact that I had hoovered prior to using the Deep Carpet Cleaner, the carpet cleaner lifted a lot of clumps of hair from the carpet.
For me personally, there was one downside to using the Deep Carpet Cleaner, which was that it is heavy and I struggled to push it along in our bedroom where we have a very thick carpet. I am quite weak and also pregnant so didn’t want to try too hard. Spencer managed to push the machine along just fine and I can easily push the machine along on our less fluffy carpets.
As mentioned earlier the Deep Carpet Cleaner also has a separate upholstery attachment. The attachment is easy to use and removed muddy paw prints from our mattress topper and tomato ketchup from our sofa with ease.
The Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner is a big, heavy machine so you will need to be sure that you have somewhere to store it. The handle folds flat to make storage a little easier, but it does still take up a chunk of room.
I highly recommend the Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner and can honestly say I will be using it time and time again.
The Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner can be purchased here for £299.99 https://www.rugdoctor.co.uk/product/deep-carpet-cleaner/.
