Rug Doctor Company History


Founded by a professional carpet cleaner in 1972, Roger Kent built the first Rug Doctor in his garage. From its humble beginnings, Rug Doctor has gone on to service both the Professional and the Do-It-Yourself carpet cleaning markets around the world through the manufacture, sale and service of its carpet cleaning machines and special cleaning products.

Originally established in Fresno, California, Rug Doctor relocated its corporate headquarters to Plano, Texas, just north of Dallas, in 1998. (For those of us that remember the TV series 'Dallas', JR's Southfork Ranch is just down the road!) The company has since grown into a major international brand - manufacturing and marketing the most convenient, compact and powerful hot water extraction carpet cleaning machines in the world.

Present day U.S. operations include a main manufacturing facility in Fenton, Missouri and more than 35 warehouse distribution points and service centres around the United States. Additionally, there are over 40 licensed distributors of Rug Doctor products, each with facilities and repair centres across the U.S.

International operations include a product manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom, plus warehouse distribution in Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and over 18 other countries.

In the UK, Rug Doctor carpet cleaning rental machines and its comprehensive range of Rug Doctor cleaning products can be found in 3,300 outlets nationwide.
