Flokati-rugs.com Flokati Care
A Flokati Rug can be a purchase that will last a lifetime and can be passed down for generations if cared for properly.
Once you receive your Flokati Rug it may arrive flattened from packaging. We strongly recommend that you give the rug a good shaking once you receive it. The more you shake your Flokati, the fluffier it will become!Because of our many years of experience in manufacturing Flokati Rugs, we have discovered that simple garden rake (preferably wood or plastic) will do wonders for your Flokati Rug. Gently raking over the wool, from the bottom up, will fluff the Flokati beautifully. You will find that some of the wool will get caught in the rake. This is absolutely normal, and is not harmful to your Flokati Rug.
The cleaning process for your Flokati Rug is amazingly simple. The Flokati should be shaken outdoors periodically to remove dust. You may wash the rug with the mildest of wool soaps. A cleanser that we carry in stock, and recommend is called Eucalan® WOOL WASH. If you would like to purchase this cleanser, please contact our factory. You must avoid washing your Flokati Rug in High water temperatures, chlorine bleach as well as dry cleaning. Not avoiding the above will destroy the protective fiber content of the wool.
For small sized rugs you may put them in your washing machine and wash on the Gentle Cycle. Air dry while avoiding direct sunlight, for the sun's rays will distort the color of your Flokati Rug.
There are many Rug Companies that will pick up, clean and deliver your Flokati back to you. Washing your Flokati Rug properly will not damage your rug, but will merely enhance its unique and inviting quality, appearance and touch.
When vacuuming the Flokati, do not run the vacuum over the Flokati because the strands will get caught in the rotating brush. Use the suction head of the vacuum (one without a rotating brush).
