Carpet Cleaning Methods
Sometimes steam cleaning isn’t always the answer, mainly because the fabric used in the carpet or upholstery can not handle the moisture or bleeding will occur. This is when the dye used in the fabric will run (bleed) into other colors in the material. This problem is most often seen in area rugs or furniture that has many colors to it such as floral patterns. Be sure when purchasing furniture or carpet that it is steam clean safe. The tag on the furniture will say “Dry Clean Only” if it is not safe for steam.

They are most common around the edges of a room next to the wall, under floor length draperies and under doors, but they can develop anywhere there is an air space such as between floorboards or spaces in the subflooring. These lines are also known as soil lines, smog lines and perimeter soiling (when they occur around walls), the problem is usually more obvious close to heating ducts, electric floor outlets, and gas valves. Bedroom doors that are closed at night, especially where windows are left open, are likely to develop the lines.
