Keeping your rugs in their best shape is important. Because Cristomar is one of the best rug cleaners Atlanta services, they also pride themselves on helping their clients keep their rugs in good shape once they leave their showroom as well. With their top team of repair and cleaning specialists, they can help rebuild the full beauty and structure of your rug so that you can get great use of your rugs for many years to come.
Our cleaning process consists of six steps:
Cristomar removes all the loose dirt and grit that works its way down through the rug's pile. These particles are sharp and cause damage to the rug pile. Have you ever seen a "walking path" in an old Oriental rug? Over time, dirt particles will break off the fibers at the foundation. Our dusting machine removes sand and grit deep in the pile that regular vacuuming does not.
We test your rug's dyes for colorfastness. If the dyes are not colorfast, then the rug is protected with a dye-fix to set the dyes during the wash process.
The rug is hand-cleaned with a cold-water, mild-shampoo bath, using soft brushes for mild agitation. This removes dirt from the rug pile, which brightens the colors. Walking-path areas, food spills and stains are given special attention. Cristomar rinses your rug in a cold-water rinse to remove all soap and impurities.
The wet rug is placed through a rubber-roller wringer (the rollers adjust to the thickness of each rug) to gently remove about 80% of the water.
The drying process is key to keep the clean, fresh smell and to prevent a musty or mildew odor. The rug is dried in North Atlanta's only dry room, where large fans move the air to dry the rugs quickly and completely. Cristomar prides itself on being one of the top rug cleaners Atlanta services.
During the final step, we check every rug to ensure we have done everything possible to return a beautiful, clean rug to you.
Repair Repair is the most interesting and the most challenging facet of the business. Rugs that come to Cristomar for repair are thoroughly inspected to identify the damage. Our goal is to not only to make the rug “look” better, but also to make certain that the repaired area is strong enough to allow you to use and enjoy your rug with regular use.
We have the ability to:
replace or repair the fringe
rebuild side binding,
reweave tears and holes in the rug
We can perform repairs on any rugs from antique rugs to today's popular styles of rugs. Please bring your rug into our shop for an estimate on your rug repair.
If a rug gets to the point that it is "past its prime," we will let you know what type of floor, pad and level of traffic would be best to help the piece last longer. Or, we can add a pocket to these rugs to allow them to be hung and enjoyed.
Prevention CRISTOMAR has the products to prevent insects and other pests from attacking your rug. We offer moth treatments and dust mite control, as well as flea and tick removal. In addition, our cleaning process removes the dust and dander that can aggravate your allergies. Cleaning your rugs on a regular basis will improve your home's air quality!
