(Those ugly black lines around the baseboards and underneath the doorways of your Burlingame home.)

Carpet Filtration Soiling Burlingame, CA

If you have light colored carpeting in your Burlingame home, you may have experienced 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 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. 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 B & G Chem-Dry in Burlingame, CA at (415) 657-0114 for a free estimate and phone consultation. To help prevent the effects of filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe down the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
