Filtration Soiling

You may have noticed it in your own home, or the home of a neighbor or friend-dark, dirty-looking lines in the carpet around the baseboards, under doors and on stairs.

What is it? Can it be removed? Will it come back? The dark greyish or black discolorations that occur around the perimeter of rooms and in the doorways of some houses can sometimes be a source of embarrassment and frustration.

Our customers rely on us not only to clean their carpets but also to educate them about how to maintain their carpet. Before we explain what these mysterious dark lines are, we’ll talk about what they are not. Contrary to what you may think, it has absolutely nothing to do with accumulated dust from poor housekeeping. It is not a defect in the carpet. And although some believe it to be mold, it is not. Even pest control companies have been wrongly accused of causing these unsightly lines with their treatments.

So, what IS it? It’s called filtration soiling.
