The appearance of a carpet or rug is dependent on various factors including texture. Foot traffic causes the majority of soil accumulation of floor coverings. It also produces a physical change on the face yarnso fa carpet or rug. This physical change on the face yarns begins as soon as the carpet or rug is put to use and changes the texture an hence appearance.
Therefore a change in the carpet is subjected to use. A comparison of the area protected by furniture with adjacent used areas should graphically demonstrate the effect of toot traffic on the appearance of the carpet or rug. IT is a normal occurrence to be expected , and may be in the form of either pile crushing, fuzzing or blooming of the tufts. The fiber used in the face yarns, pile density and the amount of traffic over the carpeting will determine the type and amount of distortion.
However, The extent of physical change can not be determined until soil has been removed. The professional cleaner makes every effort to correct distortion during the cleaning process. But in many cases distortion has reached a point where it cannot be returned to even near the original appearance.
