How Host Works

What is Host?

Host is a soft natural organic product consisting of millions of absorbent particles moistened with 100% plant-based ingredients that dissolve both water soluble and solvent soluble soil.

Hand Holding Host Absorbent Particles

Host Sponges

  • Non-abrasive
  • WoolSafe approved
  • Fully bio-degradable
  • Safe for the environment

Host sponges work 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 counter or a wall, Host is used to clean and absorb dirt from your carpet. 

Why is Host dry extraction cleaning so effective?

Too often carpet cleaning is delayed to avoid the long drying time and long shut down periods, that’s where the beauty of the Host dry extraction system lies! With Host, carpet cleaning becomes routine, not a specialist project. Because Host is a dry cleaning process, your carpets are back in service as soon as the cleaning is done.

  • No need to turn on heating systems to dry the carpet
  • No smelly wet cleaning chemicals or solvents
  • No need to waste gallons of water down the drain
  • No over wetting and never any shrinkage
  • No wet carpet, no down time, no shutdown periods
  • No heavy equipment or hazardous trailing hoses

Unique cleaning technology in four simple steps

Demonstrating a Host product
  • Step One – Power Brush and Vacuum: The unique combined brushing and vacuum cleaning system removes dry soil, grit and dust right down to the depth of the carpet pile.
  • Step Two – Apply Host Sponges: Low moisture cleaning technology integrates a controlled amount of non-abrasive safe cleaning ingredients suspended in an absorbent organic fibre called Host Sponges.
  • Step Three – Deep Clean and Deodorise: The Host machine brushes this natural, environmentally friendly product through the carpet and the unique chemistry of Host sponges dissolves and absorbs the soiling along with all the spots and spills.
  • Step Four – Pile Lift and Extract Soil: The Host machine combines a powerful pile lifting action that helps revive flattened and dulled out carpet. The high power vacuum cleaning unit in the machine removes the soil-laden particles of Host, leaving the carpet fresh, clean, fragrant and dry.

The Host Aridex gives upholstery the kindest treatment leaving it soft, fresh, importantly dry, and ready to use within a very short period. The Aridex thoroughly deep cleans using only 10% moisture that only penetrates the fabric and not the backing material. This unique system is housed in a single self-contained unit, which enables the operator to reduce setup, labour and downtime cost to a minimum.
