Carpet tape is specifically designed to adhere to carpet; other tapes do not hold as well. Double-sided carpet tape keeps carpets securely in place on a floor, while carpet edging tape keeps unfinished carpet edges from fraying and gives them a cleaner look.
Carpet tape is flexible, highly durable and moisture-resistant, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor carpets. Double-sided carpet tape is designed to secure carpets to most floor surfaces, including wood, concrete, vinyl and ceramic tile. Carpet edging tape typically comes in a wide range of colors so that they blend in with most carpet colors. They are also available in different widths to cover up fraying that is already present on a carpet.
