Carpet overlocking in Geelong

July 31, 2015

The new carpet’s been installed and looks wonderful. But what can be done with the off-cuts?

At HMC Flooring, we know carpet off-cuts can be quickly turned into wonderful floor coverings in their own right through our carpet overlocking service in Geelong.

Carpet overlocking involves stitching a neat yarn edge around an off-cut, delivering a great, clean look while preventing fraying at the borders. With an experienced hand controlling the overlocker machine, those leftover pieces of carpet can become hall runners, practical mats near entrances and rugs to brighten your home.

If you’re worried that your brand-new carpet, which you’ve just had laid, will show wear and tear in high-traffic areas in coming years, then consider overlocking an off-cut from the job to create a protective mat. It’s an unobtrusive, practical way to prolong the life of your new flooring.

You can also use these overlocked off-cuts on timber or tile floors to add an important warm touch and sense of style to a room.

If you don’t have any off-cuts of your own, don’t despair. Just come and browse among our huge range of short ends carpet rolls. Not only will you be spoilt for choice, chances are you’ll find an extremely close match to the carpet colour you’re seeking from our selection of more than 100 rolls.

Using our carpet overlocking service is easy. Just let us know the measurements for that rug or mat you want created and we’ll be delighted to provide you with a price estimate.

In today’s throw-away society, carpet overlocking is a wonderful way to breathe new life into those spare pieces left from a carpet-laying job. Please contact us at HMC Flooring to find out more about our carpet overlocking in Geelong.
