Filtration Soiling

carpet with black filtration lines around edgeDo you know what those ugly black lines around your doors and edges? They are called filtration lines and they can really cause havoc on your carpets. Filtration lines are those ugly black lines that are around the baseboards and under doorways. Customers will ask why and how they get there. We've laid it all out for you here.

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This soiling 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 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 into the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. Call Chem-Dry of Coeur d'Alene at (208) 777-4116 for a free phone consultation and estimate. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
