Charlotte Home Inspector Reveals the Cause of the Black Ring Around Your Carpet.

February 13th, 2011 · No Comments

Charlotte Home Inspector Preston Sandlin Has seen this many times while performing home inspections in Charlotte NC.  It is that balck ring around the carpet.  What causes this?  I am asked this all the time.  Is it mold?  Is it moisture? etc etc.  No it is dirt or debris that is in the air.  What is going on is that you have negative and positive air pressure in your house an in an effort to equal itself out air is goin down into your carpet or padding and under a wall or door and in essence the carpet around the edges of the room are effective becoming an air filter.  To comabt this we recommend either leaving doors open and or cutting gaps under the bottom of doors or adding more returns.  For severe problems contact a reputable duct company.
