Carpet Filtration Soiling San Francisco , CA

If your San Francisco home has light colored carpeting in some or all of the rooms, you may have experienced those noticeable dark lines that appear along the edges of the carpet. This particular kind of soiling is called filtration soiling, and it comes from air that is passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door in your San Francisco home. This typically occurs over a significant period of time and is usually not noticed until a larger build-up has already 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 even into the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. Call B & G Chem-Dry in San Francisco , CA at (415) 657-0114 for a free phone consultation and estimate. Vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis to help prevent filtration soiling.
