What is carpet overlocking?
Carpet overlocking, also known as carpet binding or serging, is a technique used to finish the edges of carpet remnants or cut carpet pieces to prevent fraying and unravelling. It involves sewing a strip of fabric or yarn along the edges of the carpet to create a neat and secure finish. Carpet overlocking not only enhances the durability and longevity of the carpet but also provides a polished and professional look.
Benefits of Carpet Overlocking:
1. Prevents Fraying: Over time, the edges of an unbound carpet can fray and unravel, leading to a worn and messy appearance. Carpet overlocking seals the edges, preventing fraying and preserving the integrity of the carpet.
2. Enhances Durability: By reinforcing the edges, carpet overlocking adds strength and stability to the carpet. This helps the carpet withstand heavy foot traffic and general wear and tear, extending its lifespan.
3. Creates a Finished Look: Overlocked edges give the carpet a clean and finished appearance. The added fabric or yarn strip creates a border that neatly frames the carpet, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
4. Customization Options: Carpet overlocking allows for customization in terms of colour and material choices for the fabric or yarn strip. This gives you the flexibility to match or contrast the binding with the carpet, adding a personal touch to your flooring.
5. Versatility: Carpet overlocking can be applied to various types of carpets, including loop pile, cut pile, and even rugs. It is suitable for both residential and commercial applications, providing a professional finish to carpets in any setting.
