They have a special brush agitator on the bottom for applying the cleaner and a powerful vacuum that sucks up all the water. Rentals are virtually the same for all stores that carry them. Price for a regular size is $24.99/24 hours, wide track is $26.99/24 hours, optional hose attachment is $3.00. They also typically require a $20 deposit and and ID. Rentals are usually on a first-come first-served basis. Cleaner is required and varies from $12.99/small bottle (one room) to $19.99/large bottle (two to three rooms). Additional products like spot removers and pet stain specific items are available at even more cost.
