Flokati rugs are one of a kind with their rich history, unique production methods, and irresistible cushy texture. If you have a flokati rug, you’ll want to care for it in the best way possible. We’ve gathered the best recommendations for flokati rug cleaning from vacuuming to deep cleaning. Read on to learn how to clean a flokati rug.
To keep your flokati rug looking like new give it a good shake. Any rug will benefit from a good shake out every now and then, especially flokati rugs!
On a sunny, no wind kind of day, let your rug sit outside for a couple of hours. This will allow the wool to regain its original oxygen. If you have a faux flokati rug made of synthetic fibers, this is still a great option to refresh your rug. Letting your rug air out helps to eliminate odors and kill hidden bacteria and mites.
Frequent vacuuming is key to keeping rugs clean. When vacuuming a flokati rug use suction only. The beater brush of the vacuum can pull the long fibers on the rug which will cause the rug to wear more quickly, and in some cases, it can damage the rug. If your vacuum doesn’t allow you to turn off the beater brush then use the upholstery attachment to vacuum it by hand.
Drips and spills are bound to happen. Keep your rug in top shape by cleaning spots right away--if you wait to clean spots, they may be much harder to remove.
