Pet allergens are one of the top indoor allergens to which people are sensitive. In 1995 and 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 reducing them.

The study established that cat allergens (dander, hair and saliva) in carpet can be decreased 85% with a single HOST Dry Extraction Cleaning of carpet. A second cleaning reduces the number of these allergens to even lower levels.

This study was presented in July 1996, at the Seventh International IAQ Conference in Nagoya , Japan .
