Construction of the new Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner 93190
Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner 93190 has a different construction when compared with the old unit (which is used by rental stores).
First, two water tanks are placed side-by-side, each one has a flip-over handle and there is a centered handle for carrying the machine. This design allows you to remove the water tanks easier than the older version and the gravity of the total unit is placed at the center. The water tank is a bit more compact (about 3.2 liters), which is a better design for domestic use because you do not need to fill a lot of water and detergent like the old one. Also, these water tanks are transparent which is easier for cleaning and maintaining the machine.
Brush bar system
Second, the brush bar uses a different design
Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 (the old version) uses a single static brush bar (no edge cleaning or rotating bar) and it uses a completely different cleaning concept that is oscillating activities for removing the dirt. Thanks to the oscillating activities, Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 can clean soft plush carpets, frieze carpets without damaging the fibers.
The Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner uses a rotating roller system combined with a static brush system for scrubbing, removing and lifting the dirt from the carpets. There are 2 side brush units for edge cleaning. The main brush path width is about 11’’. The cleaning efficiency of Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner is based on scrubbing activities which are very similar to those from Bissell, Hoover…The whole brushing system of this new model is floating on the carpet and automatically adjust to the carpet pile height to be able to deep cleaning in a smooth way.
Third, different handle design
Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 handle is attached to the middle of the machine (it is collapsible). It has a side handle release lever for adjusting the height to each individual. The spray button is placed on the top of the handle and the vacuum switch is on the top of the machine.
Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner handle is attached to the bottom end of the machine, so the users will be less fatigue when using for a long time. On the handle, a released lever is placed in the same position with the Mighty Pro version. However, the best part of this new handle design is that the spraying button is now placed right at the handle grip so you can use 2 hands to trigger the detergent when needed in a more convenience way (the switching button for choosing cleaning mode carpet- tool is also located on the grip. Especially, the machine has added 2 light indicators to show if the brush is stuck or the cleaning solution is emptied (both are on the handle)
With these changes, Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner is lighter (15%), more 20% suction power, and carpet drying time is therefore improved.
The model still remains many outstanding features from the commercial unit such as powerful motor (1300 W), tough APS plastic for durability, long cord, big carpet-friendly wheels, great hose, and upholstery tool. The unit is backed by 5 years from Rug Doctor

This model is a new design which is not similar to any unit that you have known. Although it is a fully assembled unit that is ready to use after unboxing, you should also check for the user instruction to achieve the deep cleaning results without any hassle.
Pros and cons of Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner
- Deliver professional cleaning results – a personal pro-grade machine with lighter weight and faster carpet drying time
- More ergonomic design compared to the old version
- This unit is awarded by CRI (Carpet and Rug Institute) with the highest Platinum award. (CRI is the industry standard bearer for measuring how much dirt is removed from the carpet by deep cleaning)
- Sturdy design with tough plastics
- Strong suction power that extracts a lot of dirty water out of the carpet
- Easy to use and control
- It is still a heavy machine which is about 35.3 lbs, therefore, you should consider the weight of the machine if you are ladies, seniors
- It is still noisy like the old unit
Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner is an improved design from the famous Mighty Pro X3 version by giving users more flexibility, convenience and still maintain the deep cleaning results like those commercial grade units that have been used for decades on the market.
However, you should bear in mind a commercial grade machine is always heavy. Consider your home floor areas if it has spacious wall-to-wall carpets with soils, dirt, lingering odors and grimes, Rug Doctor Pro Deep Carpet Cleaner can be a perfect choice.
On the other hands, if your home is covered by mixed floor types (tile, laminate, some areas are covered by carpets or rugs) with furniture like sofa, bedding, table around, and pets you should opt a lightweight unit with full features, such as Bissell Proheat Revolution 1986 (Bissell newest upright carpet cleaner so far) or Hoover PowerScrub Elite FH50251 (the upgrade of Hoover Powerscrub Deluxe FH50150PC – the most popular choice over 5 years).
