Why are there black lines around the edges of my carpet?
This is probably the number one question we get here. That and can we make it go away? The answer is that it is filtration soiling and we may be able to get it off, there are a few factors.
“Filtration Soiling” is the term for those ugly black lines around the baseboards and under doorways. If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced a dark mark around baseboards, under doors, and especially near the HVAC return. This soiling comes from air passing through the carpet as it is attempting to go through the edge of the carpet pile, microscopic particles of soil are deposited there (hence the term filtration soiling). This occurs over a significant period of time and is not noticed until a buildup has occurred.=
How can I combat them?
Be careful around the tack strip under the edge of the carpeting, you could nick your fingers!
Can it be removed? Sometimes, with special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved, although not in all cases. 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. If the lines have been there a while or not treated, they are more difficult to get out. Below are some tips to get them out.
