Question Grey tinge in Mohawk SmartStrand

I'm seeing a lot of Mohawk's new SmartStrand carpet with a very noticeable grey tinge in traffic lanes, in front of couches and chairs, and under breakfast bars.

I'm struggling to get these areas clean. I've tried a bunch of different traffic lane cleaners like Grime Release Pro and an oxidizing stain remover like Stain Zone. I've tried scrubbing like crazy with the wand. Nothing works.

Based on the location of these stains, I'm thinking they are caused by body oils trapping the dirt and not releasing from the fiber.

Anybody else having a similar problem? Anybody have a solution?

Hello Edj, there seems to be two ways to go that we have have good results. One we will use a citrus gum remover I jokingly call suntan lotion. There are a couple of them one by steamway in a green flat bottle and the other in a white bottle with red and black labeling, I forget the name of it. Some how you will need to scrub or bush the citrus gel though out the oily areas. You will see the areas coming clean, then you will need to clean the area as normal.
Second if the carpet it almost there, but just not quite then you can try the new Pros choice product called Ding Away.

Do some research, there are many ways to clean those kind of areas you describe. Look though this forum for other answers, ask the same question on other forums, you will get some help.
