The Host Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System

We also specialize in cleaning your carpets usine the Host Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System was developed to clean carpets the way they should be cleaned. Very simply, this means removing the soil.

Host Dry Cleaner dissolves and absorbs deep down soil and spots. The brushing action of the Host machines works the cleaner through the carpet while lifting and straightening the pile. This makes it easier to vacume the dissolved dirt, greases, sugars, syrups and other spots that wet methods often fail to remove completely and provides immediate and visible results.

HOST Dry Carpet Cleaner meets Green Seal’s environmental standard for industrial cleaners based on its reduced human and aquatic toxicity and reduced smog production potential.
When carpets are cleaned improperly with wet methods, split seams, shrinkage, mildew, delamination, color fading, and other problems can result from over wetting and often the carpet becomes dingy and dull. The dry extraction method utilized by Nick’s Rug Co., Inc. can restore color and brightness and your carpets will look and feel fresh because the Host machine lifts up matted and twisted carpet fibers.

The Host cleaning method is recommended by carpet and fiber manufacturers who actually test this method. Among carpet manufacturers recognizing the superior Host method are Karastan, Shaw, Mohawk, Dan River, Fabrica, Lees, Stratton, and Interface. Fiber manufacturers include DuPont, Allied and Monsanto.


The Host method is a dry process which has five steps:

  1. First the area to be cleaned is vacumed thoroughly.
  2. Second, (if needed) the heavily soiled areas are misted with a prep solution. This breaks the oily bond that holds dirt to the fibers and the solution dries instantly.
  3. Next a dry extraction cleaner (host) is scattered over the area to be cleaned. This compound is then brushed through the carpet with the Host machine. The machine is equipped with two self cleaning nylon bristle brushes that move with an uplifting action to revive and restore matted carpet fibers. This brushing action produces thorough and even results on all surfaces of the yarns. The machine is easily adjusted to clean stairs. Since the compound is dry, you never have to worry about the soil draining to the bottom of the carpet.
  4. The Host compound (or sponges) dissolves and absorbs the soil. A built in deodorizer reduces odors, it doesn’t just mask them. There is no extra charge for the deodorizer because it is part of the compound.
  5. The last and final step is a thorough vacuuming to extract the sponges and the embedded dirt it has absorbed. No soiling residues ever remain and spots won’t return several days later as is often the case with the wet cleaning methods.
