You may be asking yourself, What are the black lines on my carpet? If you have lighter colored carpeting, making sure it stays in pristine condition takes a lot of work. Any little soil or stain is often quite prevalent. If you frequently care for your carpeting but still notice a stubborn black line or stain near the edge of your carpeting by the baseboard, there could be an underlying culprit. Microscopic soiling or accumulated dirt and dust buildup in the home can cause lines and stains to form. Here are some known causes and what you can do to restore your carpeting to look like new again.
One of the main culprits of black lines on your carpeting is likely caused from filtration soiling. This is a process in which the air that moves through the gaps between your floors and walls carries soot and dirt particles. Your carpeting acts as a filter and attracts these dirt particles. The result is a dark line of dirt buildup around areas and corners where your vacuum may not get to. If your furnace does not have an adequate air filtration system, your carpets are prone to this type of staining. Installing a PURECLEAN electrostatic filter on your HVAC system allows your furnace to trap dust and soot that would normally pass through.
Heavy Traffic Areas
You may also experience a black line of demarcation in and around heavy foot traffic areas. In addition to dirty air being blown through your furnace vents, everyday dirt brought in directly from outdoors can add to the staining process as well. One solution is using PURECLEAN’s Deionized Water system. This powerful system loosens deep down dirt and actually pulls stains from your carpet’s padding through the fibers and away from the carpet. The high pressure spray system is controlled through an extraction wand for precise removal.
Maintenance And Prevention
Once you have a PURECLEAN professional visit your Seattle area home to rejuvenate your carpeting, maintaining it will be easy. You may also want to consider air duct cleaning to help control hidden dust and allergens causing debris that is already hiding out within the duct work of your home. In addition, running an air purifier by PURECLEAN will remove germs, bacteria, dirt and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from the air in your home. This helps cut down on the pollution particles in your home that can lead to permanent staining on carpeting and furniture.
Instead of asking yourself what the black lines are on your carpet, utilize ways to prevent them from coming back. Keeping your carpets clean and bacteria free helps to reduce odor and makes your house a welcoming spot for family and guests.
