Rug binding is a very important process, but is a fairly neglected topic of conversation in carpeting talk. Without it, your rugs and carpet would unravel and fray horribly, not only creating a floor covering that looks bad, but that will need to be replaced far too soon. Read on to find out more important facts about this topic and discover whether it’s something you need to have done as well.

The process of binding rugs is a fairly simple one, really. You simply apply a fabric, an adhesive or a special stitching process to the edges of unfinished rugs in order to keep them from fraying out, unraveling and wearing out prematurely. This not only allows carpet and remnants to be cut to perfect sizes, especially for wall-to-wall carpeting, but it also allows custom area rugs to be created as well.
When binding tape is applied to the carpet’s edge, the process is known as binding. However, stitching the edges is called serging, while adding a specially designed fringe to those edges is simply known as fringing. The latter is particularly used in binding of Oriental rugs.
