Carpet Cleaning and Black Socks!
Carpet Cleaning and Black Socks! With some carpets I know that cleaning, while it will remove all the dirt, is not going to improve the carpets appearance. Some types of synthetic pile carpets, as they get older, start to capture fluff and fibres that they come into contact with. The added problem with these carpets is that vacuuming will not remove the entangled fibres, and when the fibres are from black socks the carpets will still look bad after cleaning because of the darkening from the black fibres.
When cleaning, we will simply be cleaning the black fibres. The carpet will be clean but have areas that are darker due to the trapped black fibres. So when possible we set about removing the black fibres, this is a time consuming process. The image shows the fibres removed from just one small area.
