Many store chains, including Wal-Mart, have Rug Doctor carpet cleaning kiosks for customers to rent carpet cleaning tools. The Rug Doctor rental Web page has a ZIP code finder to locate stores that provide rentals in a shopper’s area.
As of 2015, the cost to rent a small Rug Doctor machine is generally around $30, although this may vary by store. Accessories such as the Rug Doctor Hand Tool carry an additional rental fee. At least two forms of identification are required for the rental, and can include a current driver's license, current passport, military ID card, student photo ID, credit card, state-issued photo ID, immigration card with photo, or store check cashing card. Most stores require a credit card deposit for the rental. Customers can rent a Rug Doctor for a 24-hour period or longer.
