Binding & serging

 

Binding & serging

Carpet binding consists of a synthetic or cotton material that is sewn along the edge of a carpet. Designers use the binding to improve a carpet’s appearance and to prevent unraveling. Here at Sherlock's Carpet & Tile, this service is done by members of our team with years of experience. Sherlock's Carpet & Tile offers its customers in Orland Park a professional binding & serging service.

The History of Carpet Binding

Many years ago, rugs were woven to help people stay warm in the winter. They were also used as table covers and curtains on tents.

What is Rug Binding

Rug binding is a designing tool that is inexpensive and useful. It helps designers make new floor covering from remnants of an old carpet. Most homeowners toss their old wool material in the trash, which wastes money; by using a rug binding service, the luxury material can be turned into a new, classy rug.
 

What is Rug Binding: the Basic Design Process

The overall cost is reasonable because the design process is simple. Choosing a carpet remnant is the first step. You must select material that is close to the size that you need. At retail stores, rug remnants are usually sold in rolls. While browsing, choose something that has colors and patterns that blend with the interior in your home.

The next step involves selecting the binding. Designers usually bond the edges with a heat­set tape since it provides a durable edge. Hand­-stitching techniques are also effective. However, rugs that are bounded this way are more expensive because designers must use pricey rug remnants.

After the binding stage, the new rug can be placed on the floor. Homeowners in Orland Park who area rugs, have cleaner floors throughout the year. Kids appreciate that the material is soft under their feet.
