More useful information about carpets
Carpets may show increased soiling around the edges of a room, under doors and near air ducts. This is called
draught marking, filtration soiling or fogging. It is caused by the pile fibres filtering out dirt particles from the air
blowing under skirting boards or doors, or from ducts.
It is very difficult to remove and really the job for a professional cleaner.
Pile reversal, also known as shading or – wrongly – watermarking, is the effect whereby areas of cut-pile (velour
or velvet) carpet appear to become lighter or darker in colour than the surrounding area, depending on which
the angle you look at it.
It is an optical effect, brought about by localised changes in the direction of pile lay, and made visible by the way
light is reflected off the carpet surface.
It is caused by traffic patterns or unevenness in the floor, but it is NOT a carpet defect.
Loop pile carpets are not affected by pile reversal.
Occasionally tufts may appear above the surface of the carpet.
Do NOT pull them out, but cut them level with the surrounding tufts with small scissors.
The carpet may change colour over time for a variety of reasons, usually due to pile flattening, gradual soiling and
slight fading of the dyes used to colour the fibres.
A good professional cleaning will usually restore the carpet’s appearance.
Many newly installed carpets, particularly those with a cut (velour or velvet) pile, tend to lose fibre during the first
few weeks on the floor.
This effect, called fibre shedding or fluffing, is caused by the way the yarn is spun and the carpet is made. It is no
reason for alarm, but a natural phenomenon, which will stop eventually. Just vacuum the carpet a little more
gently for the first few weeks and empty the dust bag or receptacle regularly.
