Traffic Lane Grays

This is a problem that looks like soil, but really is not. The picture above shows an area in front of the door that looks dirty. If you look closely, you will noticed that the bright spot near the door plate appears to be clean. This is because the light reflection make this imaginary soil disappear. Traffic Lane Gray will diminish and/or disappear in intense light; real soil will become more apparent.
Traffic Lane Grays are due to scratches on the surface of synthetic yams, the loss of filaments on staple pile yarns systems, crushing and other usage and maintenance factors. It is not true soil and can not be corrected by cleaning. It is generally attributed to maintenance issues.
