Amazing Rug doctor Carpet cleaning! #Review

I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to review a Rug doctor carpet and upholstery cleaner and after nearly three years of having the same carpet two young children which have had sickness bugs and tendencies to throw food all over the carpet its unthinkable what actually might be growing in the carpet never mind all the mud, dirt and sand that's been walked in from the garden. So of course I said yes.


My living room is actually huge so I only managed to clean the one room, but it is the worst carpet and I have to say it is the one I have hated for a long time, I was embarrassed to have people visit and sit in it.

The Rug doctor carpet cleaner is very easy to use it comes with instructions and it also it has written instructions all over the actual machine. The white tank at the front of the cleaner is removable, you have to fill this up with about nine litres of water then add 150mls of cleaning solution, then you clip the white tank back into place. The carpet solution is said to clean approximately three rooms however because my room is so big I only managed the one.

  
The carpet cleaner its self has to be pulled backwards along the carpet and when it is full with water, I have to say the carpet cleaner is actually quite heavy and the water does not last that long in it before you have to stop, empty the removable white water tank and fill it again. The water that I was tipping away was black although after having the carpet for so long I am not surprised.
If you are willing to put in the effort the results are quite astounding I had black sticky patches on the carpet that had been trodden in I never thought it was going to lift the stains and It did they disappeared in front of my eyes it is actually amazing.

The Carpet after the clean was like a brand new carpet it was all fresh, fluffy, healthy and new looking I couldn't believe it was the same carpet! I really didn't want to walk on it and I was dreading the boys getting up in the morning with the thought of them spilling something on my lovely clean carpet.

The carpet is suppose to take around two hours to dry, I am not sure how long it took because I did mine at night time so by the time we got up for breakfast it was dry there was a slightly musty smell in the living room but hardly surprising after all the dirt it had lifted off the carpet.

Over all this carpet cleaner needs quite a bit of effort, but the results are actually amazing I really cant recommend or praise Rug doctor enough. Usually I would show you before and after pictures but I was like a crazed carpet lady once I started cleaning. I was so pleased with the results I was having from Rug doctor I was a bit like an over excited child! I forgot to take pictures which is pretty rubbish on my part, so your going to have to take my word for it, If you need your carpet cleaning Rug doctor is all the cleaning machine you need!

Rug Doctor is available to hire from most supermarkets and other stores like B&Q and the range in fact most people are no further than ten minutes from a retailer in which you can hire Rug doctor.
At a cost of just £30 pounds for 24hrs which is all you would really need it for and it could save you up to £160 if you paid for a professional to clean the carpet.

To find your nearest retailer some fantastic before and after picture (yes they are real!) and lots more information you can visit www.rugdoctor.co.uk 

I was provided hire of the Rug doctor free of charge for the purpose of this review all opinions expressed remain honest and my own.
