Rug binding employs a cloth tape that is sewn on along the edge of the carpet with a special sewing machine. B&B Carpet can match this tape to your rug, or we can use a different, but still compatible color or contrast.
Serging is another way to bind without using tape as the rug’s edge finish. For this process, the edges are first reinforced and then bound with a sewing machine stitch. This is the preferred binding method if you wish to have a new fringe attached to your rug.
There are a number of circumstances where rug binding is the best repair choice. These include:
To use carpet remnants to create custom area rugs that will protect your new carpet in high-wear areas, such as those in front of couches, down hallways, or even under your pet’s bed. In fact, any carpet that has raw edges can be restored using any binding method that you prefer. Carpet remnants can be easily turned into great mats for use around the home, garage or basement.
To repair rugs with small damage or frayed edges so that they look like new again, merely by rebinding their outside edges. Or, turn a large area rug that you love into several smaller rugs.
To eliminate stained areas by trimming off the stained area and having the edge rebound.
To attach existing rugs of different sizes and shapes, and then adding a new binding for a low cost alternative to buying a brand new carpet.
