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 their new country life - met up with a skunk during the middle of an unusually mild night. Both stinky furballs rushed into the house and rolled all over the carpet just as we realized that the gag-worthy skunk aroma was coming from THEM.
Not being in a position to replace the carpet (or, unfortunately, our noses), we rented a little HOST machine early the next morning to avoid getting the carpet wet in the typically frigid mountain temps. We didn't see how it could help, but we still hoped for the best. Amazingly and most thankfully, we were able to take the clothespins off our noses after a single cleaning! Too bad the dogs weren't as easily sweetened up.
We remained sufficiently impressed with the process and started Randy's Carpet Dry-Cleaning Service in the spring of 1997.
Some pretty good reasons to choose HOST... even without a skunk:
Carpets are generally ready for traffic immediately after cleaning
No need to put protectors on the feet of the furniture (or baggies on your feet!) until the carpet dries
No need to lug fans out to speed the drying time
Ideal for both residential and commercial carpet
Never any damage from mold or mildew
Removes dust mites, mold, allergens
Deep cleans and lifts matted pile
No sticky residue to cause resoiling
