Popular brands of carpet steamers often list the dealer and supplier locations, making it easy to find somewhere close to rent one. This is also a good resource because the websites offer a lot of information about using the machines. For example, the Rug Doctor website has a store locator and articles about using their different steamers, along with tips for removing different types of stains.

Stores such as The Home Depot frequently offer carpet cleaners for rent, such as Rug Doctor and other brands. Check its website or go to a local The Home Depot store for information about renting the machine. The machine is usually for rent, while the shampoo and other products used for cleaning the carpets are purchased new. Some stores have simple residential cleaners, while others have commercial-grade steamers to rent.

Steam cleaners are usually rented for just one to two days, depending on how many rooms need to be done. Moving furniture is ideal, but not always necessary. When the entire home is being cleaned, this isn’t always efficient. Move smaller furniture items such as tables, chairs and floor lamps. Keep the beds and sofas in place if there is nowhere to move them while cleaning the carpets.
