What is Shading and Pile reversal?

Over time, regular foot traffic will flatten the pile surface in the main walkways, causing areas of differential wear. These areas will appear lighter or shaded in comparison to the less frequently used parts.
This shading / tracking or flattening happens to all carpets with a pile surface and as such is not accepted as the basis for any complaint. Similarly Pile Reversal (or watermarking) is a phenomenon that can affect all cut pile carpets and as such is not accepted as a manufacturers fault.
