HOST® Dry Extraction Cleaner is a soft, natural product that is environmentally responsible and works in much the same way as an ordinary kitchen sponge. Just like you would use a sponge to wipe up a spill, or to wash and absorb dirt from a counter or wall, HOST® is used to wash and absorb dirt from your carpet fibres. As with using a kitchen sponge, you want to limit the amount of water you use while cleaning. Think of the carpet pile as a vertical surface, like a wall. If you use too much liquid, it will run down a wall. If you allow this dissolved dirt to run down the backing, it can be more difficult to remove and can wick back. Because HOST® is a Dry Extraction Cleaning System it carries the liquid ingredients to the carpet fibres in a controlled way. The soft organic, natural HOST® extractor SPONGES® contain all the necessary liquid to dissolve and absorb both water based and oil based dirt. It’s moistened with water and a blend of environmentally responsible ingredients. And because HOST® is a low moisture cleaning system, when we’re finished cleaning, the carpet is dry and ready to use immediately.

According to the EPA,
“Moisture Control is the Key to Mold Control”

The HOST® System uses less than one teaspoon of liquid per square foot cleaned. Unlike wet cleaning methods, HOST® does not leave carpets wet or moist with wastewater that can lead to mold growth if it isn’t dried quickly enough. Based on the statistics that manufacturers of extractors use, only 65-85% of the liquid used in these wet methods can be retrieved. In other words, what is left behind has the same soil and cleaning chemicals as what was picked up.

In fact HOST®:
    • Is Safe for children and pets
    • Helps remove mold and mildew from carpets.
    • Is Safe for all Carpets – even Wool, Oriental and Sisal
    • Removes dust mites and other allergens
    • Makes sure spots won’t wick back
    • Carpets stay cleaner longer


The Green Seal® is awarded to products that meet the standards of performance, safety and reliability. Because all three HOST® dry extraction cleaners achieved the Green Seal Certification, you can be sure that they will promote a cleaner, healthier environment, cause less toxic pollution, and conserve resources and habitats
