What you need to know

Shadows occur on a carpet when the light is blocked, reduced or absorbed, resulting in a darker appearing area or spot on the carpet surface. Shadows can occur from any number of things that block, absorb, or reduce the light. Most shadows will go away in the presence of bright light. In areas where strong lighting is present, the shades should be closed or a shadow box can be used to block the light.
