Carpet Cleaning Tampa: What are those black lines around my baseboards?

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Many customers that I have cleaned, have pointed out that the previous cleaner could not remove those black lines around the baseboards and under closed doors? These black lines are between a quarter of an inch to half inch in width and travel down the length on the wall.

This type of soiling is called Soil filtration. Its the airflow contaminants that are trying to pass through a door or the crack in the wall. This contamination is similar to what you find in your air conditioning filter.

As the air passes through the edge of the carpet pile, the microscopic  soiling is deposited there, (hence the term filtration soiling). This build up occurs over a extended period of time and is not noticed until a build up has occurred.

This type of soiling is very 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.

Removing this type of soiling is very difficult and requires special cleaning agents to assist in the process.

To help prevent soil filtration, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpet on a regular basis.

Carpet Cleaning Tampa: High traffic areas

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

While cleaning carpets today, I had a customer ask me about a high traffic area in front of her sofa.

She had moved her sofa to a different location and there was an area in front of the sofa that appeared worn out. She wanted to know why that area still looked so bad after the cleaning.

I explained that sand and grit had scratched the face of the fiber causing it to be distorted.

If the carpet is fairly new, many customers will think that the carpet has worn out in those areas. Carpet manufacturers disagree with this term. They consider this as ugly out.

This could have been avoided by more frequent vacuuming and cleaning frequency. Proper door mats will also help in removing of the sand and grit that causes this type of condition.

Vacuuming should be done daily in the high traffic areas to prevent this from happening.

Professional Carpet Cleaning using a low moisture hot water extraction process, should be done at least every 12 to 18 months.
