Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner Review


The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is a small and light weight machine that makes daily cleaning tasks easier. If you need a cleaner that can be easily carried around the house, especially stairs (it comes with a stair attachment), consider this machine.

It uses well-engineered parts and advanced technology to clean the pet stains, accidental spills, and other types of tough stains efficiently. The spot cleaner can also be used to clean car upholstery, rugs, and spots and stains on carpets.

With all these features, this machine is available at an affordable price and can start performing straight out of the box because of the easy assembly.


Mostly carpet cleaning machines are big and heavy, and that makes it hard for the user to carry them around the house, especially through the stairs. The Rug Doctor Spot Cleaner has small dimensions and is very portable. It has retractable handle and wheels that allow users to pull and move it throughout the house to clean the dirt and debris.

The presence of wheels makes it easier to drag the cleaner on the stairs and through slopes. When compared to bigger and heavier carpet cleaners of this category, the Rug Doctor scores better by far. Beside the retractable handle and wheels, the machine is light and can be stored easily at any place in the house.

Extensive reach

The appliance is equipped with a long cord of 15ft length, which allows the user to reach different places of the house after plugging it in. The user can easily clean a big hall or room in one go without having to unplug the appliance frequently.

The lengthy cord makes it easier to reach all the corners of the room to clean the toughest stains, and there is therefore nothing to worry about if there are not many sockets around.

Another excellent feature is that the brush also has an extensive reach, and it covers an almost four and a half inches wide area so that you can clean a lot in one swipe.
