Filtration Soiling

(Those noticeable, ugly, black lines that appear around the baseboards and underneath the doorways of your home.)

Carpet Filtration Soiling

If your home has light colored carpeting, you may have noticed those noticeable dark lines that appear along the edges of the carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling because it comes from the air that is passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or underneath a closed door. This tends to occur over a significant period of time and is usually not noticed until a larger build-up of filtration soiling has occurred.

Filtration 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. The effects of filtration soiling can be removed achieving adequate results with the use of specialty cleaning tools and products, and a reasonable amount of time and effort. Call Chem-Dry of Summerville at (843) 797-1025 for a free estimate and phone consultation for their filtration soiling removal services. To help prevent the effects of filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe down the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
