Carpet Filtration Soiling

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines on your carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling.  It is caused from air passing through the carpet fibers and cracks. This also occurs between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. This happens over a significant period of time and is not noticed until a build-up has occurred.

This type of soiling is difficult to remove because the soil particles are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile. Sometimes they even work their way to the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. Call All Clean Chem-Dry at (559) 292-9070 for a free phone consultation and estimate. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
