HOST© 's Green Certifications

HOST© is a 100% Green, Clean, and Dry method, here's why...

The HOST© Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System is a proven method for achieving clean and dry carpet that looks its best every day. But did you know that using HOST© can contribute to a cleaner environment both inside and outside your facility? In fact, no other carpet cleaning product has the variety of independent certifications and research that HOST© Dry Carpet Cleaner has. Below is a summary of independent research and certifications showing that HOST© is environmentally preferred and the best choice for green, safe, clean and dry carpet.

Green Seal is an independent, non-profit organization that uses science-based programs to empower consumers, purchasers and companies to create a more sustainable world. As of July 15, 2010 Washington D.C. based non-profit Green Seal, the premier independent eco-label in the United States, is excited to announce that all of HOST'S dry carpet cleaning products meet the new criteria of GS-37 Green Seal's environmental standard for institutional and industrial cleaners. The products meet Green Seal's strict performance, environmental, and packaging requirements (including a plant audit). The fifth edition of GS-37, released August 2010, tightened the restrictions regarding volatile organic compounds and reproductive toxins as well as prohibiting phthalates and chemicals related to causing asthma. This updated standard goes further than any national cleaning product standard in protecting human health and the environment. Products certified under the new GS-37 standard are among the greenest cleaning products available on the market.

HOST© does not cause eutrophication (proliferation of plant life, expecially algae, in part due to high phosphorous levels, which reduces the dissolved oxygen content and often causes the extinction of other organisms). Many times wet extraction carpet cleaners have been fined by dumping their waste water in the sewer rather than in a water treatment dumping site. Chemicals found in carpet cleaning were found to cause eutrophication. Chemicals causing eutrophication have been banned recently, but sadly these chemicals may still be used by some carpet cleaners due to having their products stored over years.
