Why DRY?

Over the years, we have had many customers who have called us immediately following a "steam cleaning" nightmare. Such complaints included:

                        a soaking wet carpet  

                              moldy, unpleasant odors

                                     inconvenient wait times to reuse carpets

                                           spots re-appearing

With the Host Dry Carpet Cleaning, customers enjoy

their fresh and healthy carpets IMMEDIATELY!

We offer dry carpet cleaning because it is superior in several ways. It leaves carpet cleaner, more sanitary and colorful. Our dry methods do not damage carpet and preserve stain-guard and other stain-resistant properties.

Here is a chart for comparing Dry Cleaning vs. Hot Water Extraction Methods


​Hot Water Extraction Cleaning (or "Steam")

Uses more solution and leaves more chemicals in your carpet


24 Hour fans and ventilation

Extracted Cleaning solution goes into our storm sewer system - and into rivers and streams

​Can push soil and stains deeper so they return over time (blooming)

“Deep cleaning” means solution is forced beyond fibers into carpet backing resulting in stretching & pad or glue, loosening bond resulting in raised carpet. Remaining moisture can host microbes and bacteria

Hot water can cause carpet to stretch

Hot water removes stain guard

Hot water solutions leave sticky residue, which absorbs dirt and stains. Carpets re-soil more rapidly.

​About $200 – $400 per home but you may need to replace carpet sooner
