Old world techniques to restore your cherished works of art
Northside Carpet provides Pittsburgh and the tri state area with the finest rug repair services in the area. Our staff uses old world techniques to restore your cherished works of art. Oriental rugs are usually either knotted with pile or woven without pile by skilled workers from different cultures, and classified by origin. We offer Oriental rug repair, Persian rug repair, and fine rug repair and re-weaving for rugs from many other parts of the world.
Our master weavers are trained to identify the type of rug and to match fibers, dyes, and patterns, and can repair even the toughest rips and tears. There are over 64,000 variations in rug weaves. No matter what complex weaving pattern is necessary, we can match it, and your restore your heirloom oriental rug to brand new.
Experienced weavers on staff
Having experienced weavers on our staff provides a unique service to our customers. Through many years of experience, it is our preferred repair method to hand repair damages to your carpets. We use our hand re-weaving solution to make the repair, without cutting or just using a patchwork-style repair.
The cleaning of Oriental rugs and carpets is a tedious process, especially since the carpets are made of jute, a fabric that can easily fade onto the bindings and fringes. We provide a hand carpet washing service that minimizes the chance of fading. We also have experienced weavers that can reconstruct any fringed edgings, all sewn by hand.
Binding, Fringing & Alterations
Almost any pattern can be bound. Whether you fall in love with an ornate pattern or just can't find the right size rug for your home, we can bind almost any style. If you're attached to your carpet, we can often repair or rebind it for you. We'll cut it down to smaller size, salvaging your favorite design or simply rebind what you have.
Fringing gives rugs a traditional tassel edge on each end. We are also able to replace worn or damage fringes which are commonly found on oriental rugs. All of our fringed edgings are sewn by hand using Old World techniques.
Pet Urine Removal and Cleaning
We agree that pets are an important part of today’s families. Many of us at Northside Carpet have pets at home, so we understand that our pets, no matter how well trained, can have an occasional accident within our homes, and specifically on our carpeting and area carpets.
It’s estimated that 70-80 million dogs and 74-96 million cats are owned in the United States. Approximately 37-47% of all households in the United States have a dog, and 30-37% have a cat. (Source: APPA and http://www.aspca.org/about-us/faq/pet-statistics).
The effect of pet accidents can result in many damages to your carpets, including: discoloration and/or removal of fiber colors, weakening of seams and bonding caused by the moisture that may not be immediately detected, and odor.
At Northside Carpet we provide a deep cleaning, washing, and soaking process, not just a surface wash. Our expert technicians have worked with chemists to develop cleaners that are appropriate for use on both area carpets and wall-to-wall carpeting. Another important step in our process involves placement of your carpet within our Ozone Room for a minimum of forty-eight hours to assist with the removal of orders and smells from your carpet.
Water Damage Restoration
The presence of water intrusion within your home or business can create a damage-caused situation for your carpets. We know that you look for ways to restore your carpets because of both monetary and sentimental value. Here at Northside Carpet Cleaning Company, we have experienced requests for carpet restoration from many sources of water damage.
After a discovery meeting with you, to learn more about the situation and source of contamination and type of water damage, we engage a multi-step process that includes: thorough wash, sanitizing, and timed drying. We also evaluate any damages sustained to the bindings and / or fringe, and evaluate the degree of anticipated re-surging of the carpet fibers.
Spots and Spills
Celebrations or just everyday life at home can lead to accidents that are sustained by your carpets. Our proprietary cleaning process works toward the removal of spots and spills, before they become stains.
We will gladly evaluate the source and the damage to your carpet, provide our expert opinion on the condition of the spot and spill, condition of the carpet, including any fringe and bindings, and if extraction is recommended as a solution.
We then engage our multiple-step process to wash, clean and sanitize your carpet. We also recommend that you consider use of a soil retardant on your carpet to prevent future spills from soaking into the carpet. Our goal is to return your carpet in a positive restored condition.
