Carpet and rug binding is necessary to keep your carpets from unraveling after years of display or wear and tear. If there is a floor too large for one piece of carpeting, binding is necessary to connect two, or more pieces of carpeting together. Binding can be done for home carpet, office carpet, and indoor and outdoor rugs that lay on tile.
Bind Berber, Shag and Other Carpets - When carpet is installed, sometimes the floor is too big for one piece to be laid. The professionals will know how to seamlessly install another piece and bind them together. Starting in the middle of one edge, the stitched area of the binding must be lined up with the edge of the carpet. The carpet must be pressed into binding tape and continue along the edge. You can bind shag, Berber, all throw rugs and carpet on stairs.
Oriental Rugs - Oriental rugs that cover your carpet or tile may need to have the edges rebound at sometime. When the edges begin to fray, you can bind the edges with a carpeting tape. This helps to keep them from running or tearing. You can bind the fringes of any area rug, including Persian and antique. You can bind the edges of any shape of rug, as well.
Wool Rugs - The binding on the wool rugs in your home can get torn or come undone over time, whether to do with an unruly dog or just normal wear and tear. If the binding comes undone, use a hot glue gun to reapply the binding around the edges. If you don't want to use a hot glue gun, you can use carpet, binding tape. It is sturdy and strong. You will first want to trim the fray along the edges before you repair it.
