Water Conservation

Using HOST saves water. How much water? 100 percent.

Most people think you need water to clean carpeting, and you do. You just don’t need a lot of it. The little moisture that is needed is already in HOST. Why waste water on cleaning? For example, if the US cleaned all of its carpet just once with HOST instead of hot water extraction, the US would save enough water to supply all of Chicago with drinking water for twelve years! Saving water is important. But so is saving money.


Water itself might not cost much, but think of the environmental impact. Using Host Dry Extraction will also help eliminate hidden costs such as:


  • Using the air conditioning and fans to dry carpet and floors
  • Treating wastewater
  • Mold or microbes
  • Heating water for cleaning


Indoor Air Quality

Carpet provides the healthful role of filtering the air. It traps and holds soil, dust and allergens. The vertical pile of carpet traps and holds many times its weight in small particles, including dust and allergens, that enter into the indoor environment and descend onto it from above. Substantial research suggests carpet does not release these elements back into the air. However, just as it is important to clean or replace a furnace or HVAC filter, it’s important to routinely clean the carpets.

The HOST® System of applying HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner to the carpet, deep cleaning it into and through the carpet removes dirt and reduces allergens. Research studies have shown that one cleaning with the HOST System using HOST Machines reduces:


  • Dust mites by 78%
  • Dust Mite Allergen by 75%
  • Cat Allergen by 85%
  • Mold Spores by 85%
