Individuals cannot rent Hoover carpet steam cleaners, but they may rent Bissell carpet cleaners at Lowe's or Rug Doctor carpet cleaners at The Home Depot. As of 2015, individuals can purchase most Hoover steam carpet cleaners for less than $200.
Owning a carpet cleaner is beneficial because it allows homeowners to clean their carpets when it is convenient for them, without the time constraints associated with a rental cleaner. People with their own carpet cleaners also know that the cleaners are well-cleaned and well-maintained. In addition, purchasing a carpet cleaner is generally a more economical option, after accounting for the cost, deposit and transportation associated with a rental cleaner.
