(Those unsightly black lines around the baseboards and under doorways)
If your naples home has light colored carpet, you may have noticed dark-colored lines that appear on your carpet. This is called filtration soiling because it comes from air passing through the carpet as it’s attempting to get through (or filter through)the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. This occurs over a period of time and usually 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 Chem-Dry by Rhein at (239) 353-4246 for a free phone estimate/consultation. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting regularly.
