Difference between Spots and Stains on Carpet

The difference between spots and stains on your carpet.
Spots on the carpet will not bond permanently to the carpet fibers. Some spots can resemble a stain, but with proper cleaning can be removed.
Stains have the ability to penetrate and damage the carpet fiber permanently by altering the color of the fibers in the carpet.

Carpet Soil Filtration lines

Filtration lines consist mostly of microscopic particles containing carbon. Air flows along the baseboard and over time these particles will build up creating a dark line. HVAC, Fireplaces, burning candles and smoking all contribute to filtration lines. Replacing dirty air filters and vacuuming on regular bases with a crevice tool will give the best results from preventing these lines occurring.
