HOST® – The Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System
HOST® is a soft, natural product consisting of millions of absorbent sponges. These “sponges” are moistened with a unique blend of water, detergents and a small amount of safe to use solvent. The SPONGES Cleaner contains and controls all the necessary liquid to dissolve both water soluble and solvent soluble soil.
The HOST® SPONGES do a double duty job. First, they carry the liquid cleaning agents to the fibers in a controlled way. Second, they loosen, absorb and hold the soil in control for extraction by vacuuming. With the HOST® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System we are in total control of the cleaning chemicals and soil at all times.
The HOST® Machine brushes the moist SPONGES up, down, over and into the carpet fibers so that they contact all surfaces of the soiled fibers, breaking the oil bond and wiping the soil away. This action is similar to a moist sponge used to wipe up spills in the kitchen or soil from a wall. Carpet pile is a vertical surface much like a wall. When liquid is applied, gravity pulls any excess moisture down into the carpet toward the backing.
When we use the HOST® SPONGES we don’t lose control of the moisture and soil. In addition to absorbing the soil, the HOST® SPONGES hold that soil until it is removed by vacuuming.
Carpets do not resoil as quickly as when cleaned with wet methods because there is no sticky residue to grad and hold fresh soil. Because the HOST® System prevents resoiling, regular and frequent vacuuming helps to keep the carpet cleaner longer.
The unique design makes the HOST® Machine ideal for deep cleaning carpets. Carpet is manufactured in straight rows of upright carpet yarns. This is similar to millions of individual, vertical surfaces. The brushes of the HOST Machine turn toward each other in a vertical direction, the same direction as the carpet yarns. This makes it possible for the brushes to get into the carpet pile and work the HOST SPONGES in, around and through the carpet yarns, deep cleaning the carpet.
A side benefit is effective pile lifting and restoration. So if the carpet is dirty right to the backing, the HOST® Machine can work the HOST® SPONGES deep into the carpet. The SPONGES Cleaner then dissolves and absorbs the soil and is removed during the vacuuming procedure. Our HOST® EXTRACTOR VAC improves on the ability to deep clean because of its superior vacuuming ability.
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%

The following is a step-by-step explanation of the HOST® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning method employed by professionals at Pure Cleaning Solutions:
Step 1: Pre-Inspection
Our technician will do a walk through inspection with you to identify soiling conditions, carpet construction, customer concerns, and potential permanent stains.
Step 2: Pre-Spotting
Spots and traffic areas are given individual attention by our technician.
Step 3: Apply HOST® Advanced Formula Carpet Cleaning Sponges
The HOST® cleaning sponges dissolve, absorb, and trap soil, spots, and odors as it cleans. Special counter-rotating brushes are used with the HOST® sponges to deep clean carpet fibers and remove ground-in soil.
Step 4: Vacuuming
The HOST® sponges are removed by a thorough vacuuming from our powerful commercial grade HOST® equipment. Matted carpets are reinvigorated and revived, once again becoming soft to the touch.
Step 5: Post-Inspection
Our technician will walk through your home with you to point out the cleaning results and to make sure that you are completely satisfied with the job.
After vacuuming, your Pure Cleaning Solutions professional will apply the HOST® Sponges Cleaner to the carpet.
The mechanical action of the machine delivers the liquids in the HOST Sponges deep into the carpet. The HOST Machine brushes the HOST SPONGES Cleaner up, down, over and around, penetrating deeply into the dirty carpet fibers. The SPONGES Cleaner contacts all surfaces of the dirty carpet fibers, dissolving and absorbing the oil bond and sticky residues that causes dirt to adhere to the fibers.
As brushing continues, the dissolved dirt is wiped away from the fibers and towards the surface of the carpet. Just as sponges in your kitchen holds on to dirt, HOST® Sponges hangs on to the dissolved dirt until it is removed by vacuuming. HOST® SPONGES instantly absorb and hold the dissolved dirt under control, until it’s removed by vacuuming. Vacuuming is the final step. The powerful commercial grade Pure Cleaning Solutions equipment removes the SPONGES holding the dissolved dirt.
After the HOST® treatment is finished the carpet is not only exceptionally clean, its fibers have been reinvigorated and its volume has been restored by the specialized brushes employed by the HOST® cleaning system. With HOST® dry carpet cleaner, carpets don’t resoil because there’s no sticky detergent residue to grab and hold fresh dirt.
