What is a tuft bind in carpeting? When flooring experts understand carpet construction, they can assist their clients in figuring out what their needs are and what kind of carpet might work best for them. When it comes to carpeting, there are two types, weaving and tufting. Most of the carpets for sale today are tufted, which means the yarns are woven into the backing and then cut evenly.
There are different levels of quality for tufted carpeting and one of the measures of durability is the tuft bind. Tuft bind is the force required to pull up a tuft from the carpet. When it is high, there is a less likely chance that the edges won’t ravel and the yarn won’t get pulled out. Other carpet problems like zippering and sprouts will also happen less often with a higher bind.
When it comes to getting clients exactly what they want, it makes sense to explain to them about tuft bind and the difference that it can make in the quality of carpet they buy.
