Rug Doctor® Company History
From its beginning, Rug Doctor has serviced both the professional and the Do-It-Yourself carpet cleaning market through the manufacture, sale, and service of carpet cleaning products and machines.
Originally established in Fresno, California, Rug Doctor relocated its corporate headquarters to Plano, Texas, a suburb just north of Dallas, in 1998. The company has grown from a regional West Coast operation to an international manufacturer and marketer of the most convenient, compact, and powerful hot water extraction carpet cleaning machines and products available today. Present-day U.S. operations include a main manufacturing facility in Fenton, Missouri and more than 35 warehouse distribution points and service centers around the United States.
Expanded distribution and sales of machines have allowed a growing number of vacuum cleaner sales and repair shops to offer Rug Doctor carpet cleaning machines for sale. These shops also serve as repair centers for machines if needed. Rug Doctor carpet cleaning rental machines and a full line of Rug Doctor carpet cleaning products can be found in over 33,000 grocery, drug, hardware, and home center stores across the U.S.
International operations include a product manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom, plus warehouse distribution in Canada, England, Australia, and over 20 other countries.
