1:5:10:221 EcoTip: Filtration soiling is a clue that air is flowing from areas that may present an indoor air quality problems. If you notice a dark strip forming along the line where carpet meets a wall – this is filtration soiling. As air passes through the wall, particles of dust and debris are filtered out by the carpet.
