Rent carpet cleaner: The pros and cons

Anyone who thinks about renting a carpet cleaner usually has the purchase costs in mind when purchasing them. In rare use, these are often out of all proportion to the benefit, at least for high-quality devices. Here it makes sense to rent a carpet cleaner, wet vacuum or vacuum cleaner instead of buying it. But not only the savings in the purchase price argues for renting a carpet cleaner. Even those who have little storage space at home benefit from lending the device only when needed and do not need to plan for storage after use. In addition, the providers take care that the carpet cleaners are always in good condition and ready for use. Even if something should break when used properly, you can simply swap the device and you do not have to worry about anything.

In addition to the benefits, there are also a few points that speak against leasing a vacuum cleaner or carpet cleaner. First and foremost is the extra effort that comes from picking up and returning the device. Depending on the place of residence, the next provider is more or less far away. The leased devices are also often rather cheap or mid-priced carpet cleaner and therefore usually relatively heavy. So if you do not own a car, you should first think about the transport. Here, from our own experience, it should be noted that you can also pull a carpet cleaner 10 minutes over the sidewalk to the next S-Bahn station. Of course, transport by car is much easier and more enjoyable.

The pros and cons at a glance:

No acquisition costs

Often cheap devices with low comfort and high weight

Where can I rent a carpet cleaning machine?

Meanwhile, all known hardware stores have a rental and loan service for various devices. In almost all cases a carpet cleaner can be rented there. Often also wet and dry vacuum cleaners are on offer.

A carpet cleaning machine can be rented at the following hardware stores:

Bauhaus (from 8 € for 4 hours)

Hagebaumarkt (prices vary by location)

Hornbach (from 10.40 € for 4 hours)

Obi (from 10.40 € for 4 hours)

Toom (prices vary by location)

When is it worth to rent the vacuum cleaner compared to the purchase?

In short: The less often the vacuum cleaner or carpet cleaner is used, the more likely it is to rent it instead of buying it. A simple calculation example: Once a year, the carpet should be thoroughly cleaned. For this purpose, a carpet cleaner in the hardware store for about 10 €. With cleaning agent and effort (travel costs, etc.) are the cost of about 20 € for a single-use. A comparable carpet cleaner can be purchased for about 100 €. A purchase is worthwhile in this case after 5 years. With frequent use, of course, earlier.

So it makes sense to worry about future usage. Am I planning to use the carpet cleaner in the long term? Will my current application be away in the foreseeable future (for example moving to an apartment without carpet)? Do I only need the device once? Do I theoretically have the space to store the device?
Especially in the following cases, it makes sense to rent a carpet cleaning machine:

Entry or exit

Thorough car cleaning every 1-2 years

Irregular carpet cleaning or spring cleaning

Conclusion to rent carpet cleaner

In many cases, it makes perfect sense to rent a carpet cleaner. Especially when moving into a new apartment with carpet, I can only recommend the thorough cleaning from personal experience. Even if the carpet looks visually clean, there is usually a lot of dirt hidden inside. At that time, we borrowed a carpet cleaner from Obi and were very satisfied with the service. The device was not very high quality and comfortable in operation, but has mastered his task well and pulled a lot of dirt out of the carpet. With the large number of hardware stores, there is almost always a branch nearby where you can rent a carpet cleaning machine. Especially the offers of the two drugstores dm and Rossmann are also quite attractive – after all, the cleaning agent can be used usually for several applications.
