Question:

If one is uncertain whether a certain area has been polluted by impurity what should he do? 

Answer:

Bismillah

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

There is a principle in Islamic jurisprudence which is:

“Certainty is not lifted by a doubt.” (Al Ashbah Wan Nadhair p.60)

Therefore if one is in doubt and one is uncertain whether a particular part of his garment or body is impure, then one should not take any notice of it as the certainty of the cleanliness of the clothes will not be lifted by the doubt of impurity.

Only Allah Knows Best
