We have all seen the Rug Doctor carpet shampooer machines at Countdown, you can hire this machine for a day or over night or perhaps all weekend and complete the carpet cleaning DIY style.
Today, we will look at the comparisons between hiring a Rug Doctor and hiring Busy Bees professional carpet cleaning service.
For this example: We are calculating a cost for a 3brm home.
Rug Doctor price is approx $86.97 to hire machine + cleaning products. You then need to factor in the time to complete the carpet clean. We estimate the time to take a person use the Rug Doctor for 5 rooms approx 4hrs-5hrs.
Then you need to clean the machine and pack up the machine to return in perfect clean working condition back to Countdown so there is another 1 hour of your time + drive time – usually at a time when you are already stressed with moving house or similar.
Honestly not a bad price if you have the time to complete. However you may find that the clean is sub-standard and you do run the risk of having to re-do the clean if landlord or property manager not happy.
Here is the price calculated on Busy Bees instant online quote system.
Our price includes:
- 3brms, Open plan living
- Pre-Stain treatment
- Approx time to complete clean 1.5hrs
- Professional invoice and guarantee provided to landlord or property manager.
Our machines are stronger than the Rug Doctor therefore maximising your carpet clean.
Whilst a Rug Doctor does provide an easy way to clean the carpets yourself, only you know if it is worth the overall time to complete in order to save money. A Rug doctor would be fine for a carpet in really good condition, but a carpet with several stains or quite dirty carpet you may need to clean the carpet twice therefore adding more time to complete.
