Katy said: “It doesn’t matter whether it’s muddy shoes, Christmas decorations, spilling wine or coffee or just a lot of use on my carpets and flooring, trying to get these clean can be a nightmare so I was keen to give Doctor Rug Carpet Cleaner a try. First, this came in a big box which when I looked inside, had everything I needed to easily assemble and even had a bottle of Rug Doctor cleaning solution so I could try out the carpet cleaner.

Assembly was easy, you will need a screwdriver to slot the handle into place which when clicking into place needed forceful shove and then I screwed the screw back into place and wrapped the cord into place, which is a good length. After that, it really was a simple case of filling up the water tank with hot tap water and adding in the cleaner which took me less than a minute to do and it was ready to use.

There is the deep carpet clean which is the option I used first, I simply moved the option to this and turned on the Rug Doctor and I pressed the ‘Soap & Clean’ which is on the underside of the handle and held this while I pulled it back and forth once each time, and then let it go and went over the same place again to draw out the liquid in the carpet. I could instantly see the difference, there were a few marks on the carpet that I hadn’t been able to get out including a little bit of coffee and the carpet cleaner had removed this.

My carpet looked like it did when I first got it and it took very little time to dry. There is also a Quick-Dry option which I could set so I could go over my carpet or flooring to get any excess liquid out so it was drier even quicker. Emptying out the dirty was simple, I unclicked the handle on the front and there is a cap which I unscrewed and simply emptied down the drain and the colour was horrible, it just showed how much dirt the Rug Doctor had managed to get out of my carpet.

I’ve still got the flooring option to try but if the deep clean carpet setting is anything to go by, then my flooring is going to look brand new in no time. There is also an attachment to clean upholstery and this goes into the front of the Rug Doctor and has an easy to use cleaner on the front so you can clean your sofa’s etc and again this brought my sofas and chairs back up, I didn’t realise just how much dirt was on these until I use the Rug Doctor! The carpet cleaner itself isn’t too noisy, I would say it’s no louder than any other carpet cleaner or vacuum cleaner and it isn’t any heavier than other carpet cleaners.
