Water used during cleaning
The Rug Doctor only holds 2 to 2.5 gallons of water, as shown by our video. By contrast, our truck mount uses more water to rinse and lift away small particles. When we were finished cleaning an area of the same size we pulled 3.5 gallons of water out of the carpet.
Temperature of water used in cleaning
Our truck mount keeps the water at a consistent temperature, allowing us to clean your entire carpet with water hot enough to be effective. The Rug Doctor, on the other hand, does not allow for temperature control. As soon as you put the water in the tank it starts cooling, and the water will be downright cold long before you finish.
The Rug Doctor has a powerful vacuum, but nothing that can compare to our truck mount. Our vacuum is strong enough to pull every particle of dirt and debris in your carpet.
The Rug Doctor doesn’t really turn, and it is so bulky you can’t get the edges of a room. The machine leaves an inch or so of your carpet completely untouched. Our truck mount wand is so small and flexible, it can get around any obstacle in the room.
