Have you ever noticed the unsightly dark areas that seems to accumulate under doors or around the edges of the room on your carpet? These black lines often look like you should be able to simply vacuum them away, because it almost resembles a buildup of dust. Unfortunately, you can’t just vacuum it up. These dark lines are known as filtration soiling, and Direct Carpet Cleaners would like to help you understand how they form and how you might be able to prevent them.
What is Carpet Filtration Soiling?
When your house is built, there is no way to make the house airtight. There is always going to be a small gap between the place where your walls meet your floor. If you have an HVAC system in your house that helps cool and heat your space, there is a certain amount of air that is constantly trying to move through that small gap between the floor and wall. When you have carpeting, coupled with the air trying to move through this small gap, your carpeting acts as a filter for dirty air. Over time, you will notice that your carpet starts to show discoloring as that air is forced through the fibers of your carpet and traps pollutants in the air. It looks as though you have allowed dirt and dust to accumulate on your carpet and it could simply use a good vacuuming in order to remove it. This isn’t the case however. The particles that have adhered to your carpeting are very fine, and can be quite difficult to remove.
Filtration Soiling Prevention
When it comes to filtration soiling, the best way to prevent this problem, is to limit the source that is causing pollutants in your air.
Air Duct Cleaning
Having your air ducts cleaned has been shown to reduce the amount of pollutants found in the air inside your home. Getting rid of the dirt, dust, and debris that accumulates in your air ducts will not only reduce the pollutants in your air that can cause filtration soiling, but it can bring with it many health benefits as well. If you suffer from seasonal or other allergies, or even asthma and other respiratory illnesses, having your air ducts cleaned can be life changing.
Air Purifiers for Smoke & Other Pollutants that Settle in Your Carpet Fibers
The use of air purifiers can also improve the air quality in your home. This is especially the case if there are any smokers that live in the house. Tobacco smoke creates a residue that is among the most difficult to clean out of your carpet.
HEPA Air Filters
When you are choosing the air filters for your home, choose HEPA filters for best results. They do the best job at removing particles and other pollutants in the air that reduce the air quality in your home. Keep your filters clean as well so they work properly.
