How To Bind A Rug

To bind or not to bind a rug myself, that is the question you must ask yourself when you purchase a remnant piece of carpet or have left over carpet after an installation in your home.  You don’t want to throw away the extra pieces of carpet or you just need a little bit to place in your home and you don’t want wall-to-wall either.   So you found the exact piece of carpet to use with the style and colors to match your room and now you get it and notice that like any remnant piece of carpet, the sides don’t have a finish binding on them.  This is because the original intent of this carpet was to be installed wall-to-wall and the rough finished sides would be hidden under the trim. 

So you purchase the carpet or again have it left over and you want to put it down as is but, you know that the rough edges will look bad and could begin to unravel by normal usage so, what to do but bind it!  Now you can purchase a clue down type at the store of purchase but, it gets heavy usage or you need to wash the rug, the glue will come apart and separate the binding from the edge.  So now what to you do?  Also, the sides may not be exactly square or the carpet may be a bit bigger then you measured and won’t fit as is, into your room?  

Don’t worry, we have the tools, training and experience to bind all carpets with a nice finished edge and we can even square them up so you have rug that looks like you bought a handmade one.  We also can make it into many sizes you need and shapes too.  You see, we have the ability and experience to handle your rug needs and leave you with a great finished product you can enjoy for years to come. 

We even can put a fancier edge onto it by Serging over the top of the binding to create the wrap appearance of a hand knotted rug without the price tag attached to a hand knotted rug.  We have several colors of binding to choose from and styles that will meet all your decorating needs.

We even have a non skid padded backing we can attach directly to the rug eliminating the need for a waffle type padding that you have to mess with every time you move the rug.

So next time when you have a little left over carpet from an installation or, see a remnant piece at the store you would like to use in your home, don’t hesitate to pick it up and bring it to us.  Oh by the way we can even pick it up for you and deliver it after the work is completed.  We are your one-stop shop for all your rug needs.  

Until next time, Rugman Out!
