HOST cleaning

The host is absolutely the best way to clean high end carpet.

Here I am going to compare the host with steam cleaning.

HOST Ease of Use:
  • The HOST Dry-Clean Machine simply plugs in and is ready for use.
  • Apply HOST SPONGES, brush in, let dry and vacuum up.

Steam Cleaning Ease of Use:

  • Large machine with multiple attachments.
  • Requires filling and emptying tanks.
  • Chemical mixing required.
  • Improper use could result in streaking and over-wetting of carpets.

HOST effectiveness:

  • Deep cleans and lifts matted pile in one easy step.
  • Spots won't wick back.
  • No sticky residue to cause resoiling.
  • Immediate visual results confirm carpet cleanliness.
  • If needed, multiple passes over heavily-soiled carpet can be made.

Steam Cleaning Effectiveness:

  • Detergent residue and moisture may cause carpets to resoil quickly.
  • Spots may wick back when carpet is dry (and after extraction machine has been returned).
  • Repeated cleaning or multiple passes on any carpet may result in damage from over-wetting.

HOST Drying Time:

  • Ready to vacuum up in less than an hour.
  • No need for furniture protectors.
  • Walk on your carpet during and immediately after cleaning.

Steam Cleaning Drying Time:

  • Extraction method may introduce potentially damaging and unwanted humidity into home.
  • Carpets may take 8-36 hours to dry, depending on indoor and outdoor humidity levels.
  • Rooms virtually unusable until dry.
  • Furniture protectors may be required until carpet is dry.
  • May require fan to speed drying.

HOST safety:

  • Shown to reduce allergens.
  • Never any damage from shrinkage, over-wetting, or mold or mildew.
  • Recommended for all types of carpeting including oriental rugs, wool, sisal, jute and other natural fibers.

Steam Cleaning:

  • Must avoid over-wetting, which may cause mold and mildew, or shrinkage.
  • Hot-water extraction machines and cleaning products are not
  • recommended for use on natural fiber oriental rugs (silk or wool), hand-loomed wool rugs, sisal or jute carpets.
