Most Albertsons grocery stores rent out Rug Doctor’s X3 Carpet Cleaner, Pro Deep Cleaner, and Pro Portable Detailer & Spot Cleaner. Prices start at about $20 for a four-hour rental, and you can add a variety of attachments to clean other surface types, such as hardwood flooring and upholstery, at an additional cost.
Albertsons’ Carpet Cleaner Rental Policy
Albertsons rents out Rug Doctor carpet cleaners at most locations, but available models vary by store, corporate customer service representatives at both Albertsons and Rug Doctor confirmed.
There are three Rug Doctor rental models to choose from:
- X3 Carpet Cleaner: $29.99 for 24 hours or $39.99 for 48 hours; extracts up to 89% of dirt and dust trapped in your carpets
- Pro Deep Cleaner: $34.99 for 24 hours or $44.99 for 48 hours; extracts dirt and odors at the source
- Pro Portable Detailer & Spot Cleaner: $19.99 for four hours, $24.99 for 24 hours, or $34.99 for 48 hours; best suited for spot-cleaning carpets and upholstery
We confirmed these prices with representatives from both Albertsons and Rug Doctor.
You can also rent a variety of attachments to clean other surface types with your rental machine at an additional cost. Prices range between $4.99 and $5.99, and you can choose from Hard Floor, Grout Cleaning, Upholstery, and Universal Hand Tool attachments.
All Rug Doctor machines require a cleaning solution, which can be purchased separately from Albertsons. Rug Doctor-branded cleaning solutions range between $4.99 and $23.99 and are safe for both children and pets. You can also use another company’s cleaning solution or even make your own.
You’ll need two forms of identification to rent a Rug Doctor carpet cleaner at Albertsons. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver’s license, passport, military ID card, student photo ID, credit card, state/DMV-issued photo ID, immigration card with photo, or store check cashing card.
If you fail to return the carpet cleaner within the allotted timeframe, you’ll be charged the initial amount you paid to rent the machine each day until it’s returned.
If your local Albertsons store does not rent carpet cleaners or doesn’t have the Rug Doctor model you want to rent, there are other stores that offer carpet cleaner rentals, including Food Lion, Safeway, Stop & Shop, Vons, and Walmart (as previously reported).
