Do you have mystery marks like this around the edge of your rooms? Have you wondered what they are and how they are caused? Have you tried unsuccessfully to get rid of them?
Marks like this are commonplace in newer houses although they are also seen in older properties. They are caused at the time of the carpet being fitted when the fitter stretches the carpet onto the gripper rods using a stretcher tool and he’s a little over zealous. The result is that he allows the stretch to puncture a membrane in the carpet structure . Over time minute dust particles which are blown around the cavities of houses find their way up through the holes in the carpet structure leaving these unsightly marks.
I believe that it’s more prevalent in newer houses as the fitters are under pressure to fit out a numbers of houses a day and therefore rush the fitting process leading to the damage being caused. Whatever the reason what you want to know is can they be got rid of?
The simple answer is that they can but that they will return over time but regular carpet cleaning will help keep the problem away
