Water Conservation

According to industry estimates, there are about 200,000,000,000 square feet of carpet in the United States. Cleaning all of this carpet just once with HOST® would save 9,770,000,000 gallons of water! That’s enough water to:

• Fill 195,000,000 standard bathtubs
• Flush a 1.6 gallon toilet more than 6,000,000,000 times
• Sustain over 53 million people for one year or over 670,000 people for their lifetimes

This point is often overlooked, wet extractors use large amounts of water. Further, they generate large amounts of waste water which burdens sewers and water treatment facilities. Also, 20%-35% of waste water that is left in the carpet evaporates; humidifying buildings and forcing air conditioners and dehumidifiers to run harder and longer. Using HOST® saves water. In fact, the HOST® System deep cleans carpet with 97% less water than typical high-flow wet extractors.

Energy Conservation

Many environmental organizations recognize that it takes quite a bit of energy to heat water used in wet extraction cleaning methods. In an effort to lower costs and energy use, such organizations are supporting cleaning systems that do not use water.
With HOST there is:

• No water to heat
• No need to use air movers to dry carpet
• No need to run dehumidifiers and air conditioners to remove moisture from the carpet and air

Improved Air Quality

Research studies that one cleaning with the HOST System reduces:

• Dust Mites by 78%
• Cat Allergens by 85%
• Dust Mite Allergens by 75%
• Mold Spores by 85%
• There is no mold or mildew from wet carpets

The HOST System of applying HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner to the carpet, brushing it through the carpet and then vacuuming up the HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner 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%.

Products or equipment that advertise they remove dust mites and mold from the environment are under the jurisdiction of the EPA and must be made in an EPA registered facility.

HOST Machines are manufactured in an EPA registered facility; EPA Establishment No. 074202-WI-001.
