How Randy's Carpet Dry-Cleaning Service came to be...

Three months after we moved to Ashe County in December, 1995, our two fine city dogs - still in the process of learning the ways of the country - met up with a skunk. Both of them rushed into the house in the middle of the night to roll all over the carpet, just as Helen realized that the suspicious skunk aroma was on THEM.

Not being in a position to replace the carpet (or, unfortunately, our noses), Randy rented a little HOST machine and hoped for the best. Amazingly and most thankfully, we were de-skunked after a single cleaning and were impressed enough with the process to start Randy's Carpet Dry-Cleaning Service in the spring of 1997.

Be glad you don't need to wait for a skunk moment to benefit from the HOST System!




About the HOST System...

The HOST System uses specially designed equipment and HOST SPONGES® Dry Carpet Cleaner. HOST equipment has unique counter-rotating brushes that effectively (and sometimes unbelievably!) lift pile and dislodge dirt.

HOST SPONGES, which look somewhat like damp sand and work like a kitchen sponge, contain a balanced blend of water, detergents, wetting agents and natural ingredients with a citrus-based fragrance.

As the SPONGES are brushed through the carpet, the absorbent particles deep clean by dissolving, trapping, and removing spots, spills and greasy, oily dirt. After the SPONGES are vacuumed, the carpet is clean, dry and back in service.

Product testing done by independent laboratories shows that the HOST SPONGES cleaning compound is biodegradable, safe for people and pets, and has negligible airborne dust and VOC's (volatile organic compounds).

The HOST System has been recommended by leading carpet manufacturers and fiber producers. It has been shown to prolong carpet life and to be safe for all carpets, including stain resistant and wool carpeting.

The HOST System and Allergens...

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%
