Even if you’ve never heard of filtration soiling, chances are you already detest it. Do you have ugly black lines in your carpeting along your baseboards and under doorways? That’s filtration soiling. Thankfully, the carpet cleaning experts at Rainier Chem-Dry can help.
Filtration soiling occurs where air flows through your carpet, leaving behind a deposit of dust, smog, oils, and other airborne pollutants. These soils consist of many things: fireplace or automobile emissions, residue from furniture polishes, fine sand or clay particles, and cooking oils. No matter what they’re made of, these fine, oily, dirt-attracting substances are bad news.
It isn’t easy to reduce or prevent filtration soiling, but Rainier Chem-Dry has some helpful tips:
- Regularly vacuum and wipe the edges of your carpeting
- Seal cracks in the subfloor, under baseboards, and at edges of stairs to restrict airflow
- Eliminate cigarette smoke and cleaning chemicals where possible
- Use high-efficiency HVAC air filters, and replace them as directed
- Use high-efficiency vacuum cleaner bags
We’ll be honest: Filtration soiling is difficult to remove – even for our certified carpet cleaning technicians. But if anyone can do it, Rainier Chem-Dry can. With our special techniques, effective solutions, and unparalleled expertise, we can achieve some good results.
