How to Care for Carpet Filtration Lines

filtration-linesWhat are Filtration Lines?

If you have ever wondered how to get rid of the black lines around the carpet’s edge. If you have this issue in your home, we can help with that. Homes that have light colored carpet may have these dark lines that appear on the carpet and they are called filtration lines. Filtration lines are those ugly black lines around the baseboards and under doorways. 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 buildup has occurred.

Removing Filtration Lines

So if you have these lines in your home, we can help! These filtration lines are 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. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis. Schedule an appointment with Blue Sky Chem-Dry to take care of these lines before they become permanent.
