Rug Cleaning of Flokati Rugs

Rug Cleaning of Flokati Rugs

Flokati rugs from Greece are made with the highest quality wool from New Zealand. The wool yarn is spun on a spindle, to create the fluffier texture of the rug. For durability and more strength, a felt backing is used on the rug.

Our Process

Unfortunately, traditional rug cleaning can’t be used on these rugs, nor can heat cleaning, as it will cause damage to the texture and wool material. The process for cleaning these delicate rugs is outlined below.

  1. The rugs are shaken and beat to remove any soiled dirt.
  2. They are then vacuumed to remove any excess dirt.
  3. Once this process is completed, we put them in one of our wash pits, along with Woolsafe detergents.
  4. The rugs are then rinsed, softened, dried out and extracted, they are then fluffed and brushed. This final step brings back the texture and fine appearance that these rugs are most well known for.

As the pile of Flokati rugs is quite long, and can be up to 10cm in length, it is in your interest to have it cleaned professionally to avoid any potential damage.

Flokati rugs do sit loosely on the floor, so we suggest that you invest in a Teebaud rug pad, to place underneath the rug. This creates more friction and stability on the ground that you place the rug pad on.
