From its beginning, Rug Doctor has serviced both the professional and the do-it-yourself carpet-cleaning market through the manufacture, sale and service of carpet-cleaning products and machines. Originally established in Fresno, California, Rug Doctor relocated its corporate headquarters to Plano, Texas, a suburb just north of Dallas, in 1998. The company has grown from a regional west coast operation to an international manufacturer and marketer of the most convenient, compact and powerful hot water extraction carpet-cleaning machines and products available today. Present-day U.S. operations include a main manufacturing facility in Fenton, Missouri and more than 35 warehouse distribution points and service centers around the United States. International operations include a product manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom, plus warehouse distribution in Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia and over 20 other countries. Expanded distribution and sales of machines have allowed a growing number of vacuum cleaner sales and repair shops to offer Rug Doctor carpet-cleaning machines for sale. These shops also serve as repair centers for machines if needed. Rug Doctor carpet-cleaning rental machines and a full line of Rug Doctor carpet-cleaning products can be found in over 33,000 grocery, drug, hardware and home center stores across the U.S.
