Recommendation for a home carpet cleaner

I would prefer something portable or small since I live in a cramped apartment. I used a 'Rug Doctor' rental but wasn't that impressed with the results. Maybe there is a real wizard of a rug cleaner out there.

I use Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer and it works well for me.

FWIW, we don't allow tenants to clean their own carpets, they must hire it done. The short version is we don't think any homeowner level equipment has enough power to extract the soap and leaving any soap in the carpet leads to a more dirty carpet in short order.

I've rented the Bissel Big Green Carpet machine several times and have been happy with the result. Around here you can rent them at Lowes. I've used the rug doctor in the past and IMO the bissel is easier to use and works better.
