You should expect to put down a $15 deposit when renting a carpet cleaner from Fry’s. All but one of the Fry’s stores we contacted said you’ll need to provide a deposit. Fry’s store associates said you can pay upfront with cash, a debit card, or a credit card. To rent a carpet cleaner, you’ll also need to show a valid photo ID.
To properly use the carpet cleaner, you’ll need a cleaning solution. Fry’s sells a variety of Rug Doctor-brand cleaning solutions ranging in price from $14.99 to $21.99. Alternately, you can use another brand or your own solution, store associates said. Machines should be returned clean of soap. Upon returning the machine in clean, working order, your deposit will be refunded to your original payment method.
