This point is often overlooked: water extractors use large amounts of water. Further, they generate large amounts of wastewater that burdens sewers and water treatment facilities. Also, wastewater left in the carpet evaporates, humidifying buildings and forcing air conditioners and dehumidifiers to run harder and longer.
Using HOST DRY saves water. In fact, the HOST DRY System deep cleans carpet with 97% less water than typical high-flow water extractors. However, as HOST DRY Carpet Cleaner is ready-to-use, the actual water savings in any building using it is 100%.
Many environmental organizations recognize that it takes quite a bit of energy to heat water used in water 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 DRY there is:
- No water to heat
- No need for air conditioners to dry carpets
- No need to use blowers
- No need for dehumidifiers to remove moisture
Indoor Environmental Quality
The HOST DRY System removes dirt and reduces allergens. Research studies have shown that one cleaning with the HOST DRY System removes:
- Dust Mites by 78%
- Dust Mite Allergen by 75%
- Mold Spores by 85%
- Cat Allergen by 85%
Preventing Mold & Mildew Growth
The HOST DRY System won’t leave carpets wet with wastewater so that mold will grow and cause health problems. In fact, as shown in the above studies, HOST DRY helps remove mold and mildew from carpets.
