HOST® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System is an effective method that allows us to deep clean the carpet anytime without the inconvenience of getting it wet.

By using Host® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System, there is no need to take the carpet out of service for a long period of time, while your carpet is clean, dry and looks its best every day.

No other carpet cleaning product has the variety of independent certification and research that HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner has.

Carpet is an important part of how people see your entire facility. When your carpet is clean, everything else looks better. But too often, carpet cleaning is delayed to avoid taking the carpet out of service for long periods of time. The beauty of the HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System is that carpet cleaning can be routine and not a special project. Vacuuming, pile lifting, spot cleaning, traffic lane cleaning and overall cleaning can be performed 24/7. Because HOST is low moisture, carpets are back in service as soon as the cleaning is done.

The HOST® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System is a proven method for achieving clean and dry carpet that looks its best every day. But did you know that using HOST can contribute to a cleaner environment both inside and outside your facility? In fact, no other carpet cleaning product has the variety of independent certification and research that HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner has.

Host® is safe to use on all kinds of carpet, including wool, sisal, seagrass and oriental rugs. Because Host doesn’t use heat, steam or gallons of water there’s never any shrinkage or colour loss, so by comparison to wet cleaning Host is not only perfect for cleaning your carpets and upholstery, it’s great for the environment and saves money on your energy bill too.

HOST is recommended by leading carpet manufacturers worldwide and is safe for all types of carpet including stain-resistant, sisal, wool, and even delicate oriental rugs. And, it cleans unsealed grouted floors too!

HOST® IS GREEN SEAL CERTIFIED 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, reduce waste and conserve resources and habitats.

HOST dry extraction cleaners are United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified biobased products that contain 100% USDA certified biobased content by weight, and are the only dry carpet cleaners that have earned USDA BioPreferred® designation for Federal preferred purchasing (ASTM test method D6866). USDA BioPreferred products are composed in whole or in part of biological products or renewable agricultural materials, including plant, animal or marine materials. Products made from renewable resources reduce the demand for finite resources and are usually biodegradable or recyclable. HOST dry extraction cleaners require no special disposal.

EPA’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE): Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative (SDSI)

Racine Industries, Inc., is a Champion, the highest level of recognition offered, in the EPA’s Design for the Environment Program (DfE): Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative (SDSI). This reflects our ongoing corporate commitment to formulating safer and more biodegradable products.

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)

HOST’s environmental scores via LCA are the best in the carpet cleaning category, leaving HOST with the smallest environmental footprint around. We intend to keep it that way.

Environmental Management Approach

Many small efforts add up to making a big environmental impact. For instance, we give shipping preference to those using renewable resources. We use point-of-use water heaters to minimize heat loss through pipes and reclaim heat elsewhere to be reused. We source locally and recycle extensively. We are on the constant lookout for other such opportunities.

LEED® POINTS

The US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System® “is a voluntary, consensus-based, national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.” Using the HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System contributes to earning credits to achieve and maintain building certification.
