Hi folks! Ruthie here once again with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care. Here at our shop in beautiful Prescott, AZ, we had a few of our clients bring in their Flokati area rugs and wonder whether or not we can clean them. The short answer is yes, of course we can!
Flokati rugs require a bit of a different care than standard area rugs made from wool, silk, or synthetic fibers, but we can clean them all the same. Having your Flokati professionally cleaned will actually make your rug look fluffy and bright, just like the day you brought it home!
While some websites suggest that you can clean these rugs at home, I don’t recommend doing so at all. Here at Arizona Oriental, we have specially trained technicians who are WoolSafe Certified, which means they have received the highest training available to professional rug cleaners. Not only that, but we also have the tools and cleaning solutions designed to clean wool area rugs, including Flokatis. Our cleaning solutions are far superior to anything you’ll find available to you in a store, which could potentially ruin your area rug!
Here are a few suggestions of how to care for your Flokati at home in between professional cleanings:
Rotate your rug periodically to get even wear across your rug.
Frequently take your rug outdoors and shake it out to remove loose dirt and keep your rug looking fresh! This will also help to “fluff up” your Flokati.
Don’t just use a regular vacuum on these rugs! I suggest using the hose or suction head without a rotating brush to keep from pulling out the delicate wool strands.
Feel free to give us a call if you have any other questions about how to care for your Flokati or if you would like a price to have it professionally cleaned with us at Arizona Oriental!
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
