How HOST works
For more than 50 years the Host dry carpet cleaning system has been the premier dry
extraction cleaning system on the market. Host works better than hot water or steam
methods. Since it is a dry process, you can walk on the carpet immediately after
cleaning - meaning zero downtime.
The HOST System:
- Removes dry dirt.
- Lifts the pile.
- Deep cleans carpet and removes spots and spills immediately.
Millions of tiny, absorbent sponge-like particles that contain trace amounts of water
and cleaning agents deep clean by dissolving and trapping greasy, oily dirt. HOST
offers a better clean and the environmental benefits of using the system make it
the system of choice!
The first step in the HOST dry extraction system is a thorough vacuuming, but don’t
confuse this with your household vacuum, this is an extremely high-powered professional
vacuum. This stage is very important because around 85% of the soil in a carpet is
dry and is best removed by vacuuming. The remaining 15% is oily or greasy and cannot
be removed this way.
The next step is where the dry extraction method excels. The HOST organic sponges
are organic fibres moistened with water, detergents and safe solvents. This is biodegradable,
safe for people and pets and environmentally friendly and it smells lovely too. The
sponges are sprinkled over the carpet and then worked deep into the pile with the
HOST Freestyle machine. This uses two counter rotating brushes which circulate the
cleaner through the carpet yarns. This brushing action causes the sponges to go deep
into the pile and dissolve the oil and grease which is then absorbed into the sponges.
Finally the dirty sponges are thoroughly extracted using the powerful vacuum in the
Freestyle. This lifts the pile and leaves the carpet clean, not only on the surface
but deep down into the pile. Stubborn stains can be
The most obvious benefit is that the carpet is DRY IMMEDIATELY! This means that if
it is a domestic job you can use your room straight away with children or pets. If
it is commercial there is no down time that will cost the company lost revenue.
Another benefit is carpet maintenance. On high traffic areas the system can be used
more often without leaving the carpet looking patchy. The best way to keep your carpet
clean is to have a regular maintenance program and not wait until it is dirty enough
to see, this will vastly increase the life of your carpet and the look during its
