Rug Doctor® Announces Extension of Holiday Hotline until Feb. 1


With 2013 now in full swing, the experts at Rug Doctor (, the manufacturer of the most convenient, powerful do-it-yourself hot water extraction carpet cleaning machines and products, have announced the official extension of the company's Holiday Hotline until Feb. 1.

“We chose to continue the Hotline period into February as people are cleaning spills and mishaps from entertaining throughout the busy holiday season,” said Lauren McCann, rental brand manager and spokesperson for Rug Doctor. “Our goal is to give valuable tips and advice from our cleaning experts to consumers, whether they're cleaning up from holiday entertaining, have a new family pet or just want to start the new year with fresh carpet and upholstery.”

Whether consumers are looking for a fresh start in 2013 with a post-holiday cleanup, seeking new pet cleaning tips, or just want to get the house looking brand new for the Big Game on Feb. 3, Rug Doctor experts are available at 1-800-Rug Doctor to help solve most any carpet or upholstery stain.

Holiday Party Cleanup

The Holiday Hotline benefits consumers who hosted holiday parties and houseguests in 2012 and are looking to tidy up their homes for the New Year. According to a survey conducted by Edelman Berland on behalf of Rug Doctor, 35 percent of consumers are likely to clean their carpet after hosting an event. The Rug Doctor carpet and upholstery experts can give advice when it comes to eliminating tough stains such as gravy, chocolate, wine and more.

New Pet Owners

Following the holiday season, many consumers are welcoming new, and often untrained, pets into their home. Rug Doctor experts can provide solutions for pet-related stains, as well as recommend the most appropriate cleaning products such as its Pet Formula Carpet Cleaner or Urine Eliminator.

The Big Game

With the Big Game taking place on Feb. 3, Americans are gearing up to host parties with friends and family, not to mention cheer on their favorite team. Rug Doctor's cleaning experts can help those who need some extra tips on getting their home spotless before guests arrive, or after the guests are gone.

To speak with a Rug Doctor cleaning expert, consumers can call the Holiday Hotline at 1-800-Rug Doctor or post questions to Rug Doctor's Facebook and Twitter pages. Lines are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT, seven days a week. Rug Doctor machines are also available for rent at more than 30,000 locations nationwide. To find the nearest rental location, visit Rug Doctor's online store locator.
