Carpet Filtration Soiling Huntersville, NC

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This is called filtration soiling because it comes from air passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. This occurs over a  period of time and sometimes isn’t 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, and sometimes into the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. Call Prestige Chem-Dry in Huntersville, NC at (980) 255-8555 for a free phone consultation and estimate. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
