Got Stains on Your Carpet or Upholstery?


The holidays are over. The guests are gone. The decorations are put away for another year.

But, in many of our homes, the stains remain.

If you’re finding stains in your carpet or upholstery, be sure to give the Rug Doctor Holiday Hotline a call; they’ve extended the free service, which launched in November, until February 1. They’ll be able to tell you everything from how to get that red wine out of the carpet…or to how to remove that dog urine stain behind the tree that you just now discovered.

You can call and speak to a Rug Doctor expert from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT at 1-800-Rug Doctor, seven days a week. You can also hop on the new website chat feature to receive expert cleaning advice seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. CT at

    Swear by rug doctor! Works great in the car too if you use the attachments!

    • It does!! I’m afraid that I can say I’ve really put it to the test on some mystery stains I tracked in my Jeep…and they came out!!
