Filtration Soiling

Filtration Line Removal Treatment & Carpet Care

(Those ugly black lines around the baseboards and under doorways)

Maintenance & Professional Carpet Cleaning

Routine maintenance and professional carpet cleaning are required to avoid carpet conditions like the images to the right. Carpets that have not been properly maintained or improperly maintained can experience this condition. Filtration line build up is an accumulation of fine dirt and soil particles. Removing this type of soiling is much more difficult than removing dirt and soil with standard carpet cleanings. Not any carpet cleaner is able to remove this problem but  Air Fresh Chem-Dry offers a professional Filtration Line Removal Service.

Filtration Soil & How It Occurs

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling because 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 build-up has occurred. Not many carpet cleaners have the products or tools to remove this problem.

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. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. We offer a special product that is specially designed for Filtration Lines called Filtration Line Remover Call Air Fresh Chem-Dry at (866) 384-7474 for a free phone consultation and estimate. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis. Call Air Fresh Chem-Dry every 6 months to a year for a deep carpet cleaning that will prevent filtration soiling.
