So before you visit your local Kroger store, you should call ahead to confirm if the service is currently available and ask about the rental fees as well.

You can rent extra accessories alongside carpet cleaners at Kroger locations such as upholstery cleaners (to clean furniture) and dry fans (to dry your carpet and furniture after cleaning).

Other than these, you can also rent a hand tool to help you clean corners and hard-to-access areas of your carpet (due to the placement of furniture, etc.).

Does Kroger Sell or Rent Cleaning Solutions?

Kroger sells cleaning solutions separately from its carpet cleaners so if you wish to engage the services of a professional to do the job for you, you will have to pay for a carpet cleaning solution separately.

Cleaning solutions are available at most Kroger stores, starting from $9.99. To save money on renting cleaning solutions, you will have to do the cleaning yourself.
