Why is Host the best choice?

Consider this:

Because Host is a dry carpet cleaning system housekeeping and facilities management can:

  • Keep large areas of carpet, such as reception, foyers, corridors and conference rooms open during the cleaning process. Unlike wet cleaning methods that require a drying time of up to 12 hours. With Host carpet is open to foot traffic both during and immediately after cleaning.
  • Clean carpet any time of the day instead of waiting until the building has closed.
  • Clean carpets more often than just over the holidays, summer brakes and shutdown periods. Having the ability to clean carpet more often will keep it in better condition, and ultimately save money by greatly reducing the need to constantly replace carpet.

How often should I have my office carpets and upholstery cleaned?

Carpets and upholstery are invaded daily by general soiling, food particles and spills which in turn can create an ideal breeding ground for fleas, dust mites and bacteria. Just as the clothes we wear need regular cleaning to keep them fresh and hygienic, so carpets and upholstery require regular cleaning too.

Most facilities management professionals use this simple formula to maintain standards of cleanliness and appearance throughout their facility.


  • Reception, restaurant, conference and meeting rooms (monthly)
  • Walkways, lifts and open-plan offices (quarterly)
  • Enclosed office accommodation (six monthly)
  • Stairwells (once a year)


  • Staff and customer restaurant areas (quarterly)
  • Conference and meeting rooms (six monthly)
  • Office accommodation (once a year)

Hard floors

  • Grouted and textured flooring (quarterly)

I have just replaced my office carpets, how can I prevent them from wearing so quickly?

Often, insufficient thought is given to carpet beyond routine vacuuming and spot cleaning, both tasks play a fundamental part of maintenance but more specialised equipment and knowledge is required in order to clean and maintain carpets more thoroughly.

Accumulated soil and grit are the main causes of reduced fabric life – dust, dirt and sand particles collect deep into the base of the carpet pile, surface friction is produced by daily foot traffic which in time erodes the carpet fibre, the fibres become brittle and snap off! Accelerated deterioration of this type can simply be avoided by implementing a regular carpet cleaning programme.

A vast majority of carpets and soft furnishings are replaced as a direct consequence of improper or insufficient cleaning. When you consider the replacement costs it’s obvious that by comparison, the cost of regular cleaning is minimal – it’s an investment for the future.
