||Indoor Air Quality with HOST
Carpet plays in important and healthful role in filtering the air indoors. It traps and holds soil, dust
and allergens. The vertical pile of carpet traps and holds many times its weight in small particles,
including dust and allergens that enter the indoor environment and descend onto it from above.
Substantial research suggests that carpet does not release these elements back into the air.
However, just as it is important to clean or replace a furnace or HVAC filter, it is important to
routinely clean carpets.
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

Extraction Carpet Cleaning on dust mites. The study showed a 78% drop in the average mite
count. An extended study of 63 homes in Georgia and Wisconsin showed mite allergen
decreased by 75% one day after HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning.
This research has been peer reviewed and was one of only 500 papers worldwide that was
accepted for presentation at the Sixth International Conference on Indoor Air Quality and the
Environment in Helsinki, Finland.

1996, several homes with a cat in the residence for at least one year, were studied for the
presence of cat allergens and the effects of HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning in
The study established that cat allergens (dander, hair and saliva) in carpet can be decreased

number of these allergens to even lower levels.
