Carpet Binding​

Carpet binding is a term used for any material being applied to the edge of a carpet to make a rug. Carpet binding is usually cotton or nylon, but also comes in many other materials, such as leather. Non-synthetic binding is frequently used with bamboo, grass, and wool rugs, but is often used with carpet made from other materials.

This is done to improve how the carpet looks and to keep the edges of the carpet from unraveling or becoming frayed.

Area Rugs / Runners

Carpet Binding is used to create area rugs that can be utilized in a variety of ways around the house; under a dining room table, in front of a fireplace or wherever an area rug can be used to add a bit of decorative color and charm to a room.

Carpet Binding is great for pieces of carpet that are left over from a room installation.

Use these pieces as rugs in doorways and entrances to help reduce wear and tear on flooring

Serging is a whipped-stitched yarn-over look, used frequently on Oriental Rugs. Some heavier carpets may have to be serged because they are too heavy to feed through the binder. Berber and Loop Pile carpets are often in this category.

Over time fringing may wear out. The fringe is a very important part of Carpet and Area Rugs, for it protects the body of the rug from sliding off the end and unraveling. If this problem is ignored, serious damage to the end borders may occur. ​

The Rug Rescue gives extra care to each and every carpet or area rug. Some times we must latex the back of the Carpet or Area Rug so they do not continue to unravel, then we cut back the damaged part, and bind the edge with a coordinating binding to lock the cut edges in. After this procedure it’s safe to re-fringe.

We pay close attention and try to match the existing fringe, style and color as close as possible.

Some Customers prefer to change to a different style or color of fringe and some prefer to not fringe their carpet or area rugs at all. For people who don’t want a fringe reapplied we simply leave the bound look or match the serging on the sides of their carpet or area rug.
