Flokati Rug Cleaning

Flokati rugs are the most beautiful, shaggy rugs you can have in your home. Traditionally made from wool and originating from Greece, their look and feel is unsurpassed. Yet cleaning a flokati rug on your own can be near impossible due its fluffy nature. PristineGreen offers comprehensive flokati rug cleaning services and flokati rug care options that will remove all its embedded dirt, oils, and stains, and bring it back to new or near-new condition.

What Are Flokati Rugs?

Greek shepherds first designed the flokati rug to keep warm during the winter outside while tending their sheep. They were then discovered in the U.S. during the 1970’s, during the “cultural revolution,” and their popularity has skyrocketed due to their soft and fluffy feel. These area rugs are incredibly versatile and are used as carpets, blankets, clothing, or bedding. Flokati rugs today are often made from wool but can be made from synthetic fibers like polyester. Due to their appearance, flokati rugs are considered a subset of shag rugs.

Flokati Rug Cleaning Services

You might be wondering, how do you clean a flokati rug? Because of its fluffy and porous nature, flokati rugs should really be cleaned professionally. Consumer-grade machines and products will not be able to effectively deep clean this shag rug. Our cleaning services at PristineGreen professionally clean your flokati rug in two possible ways: you can either have your flokati rug cleaned in-home or you can have it taken away for facility cleaning.

In-Home Cleaning

Our in-home cleaning process includes a deep cleaning with steam cleaning, also known as hot-water extraction. Using industrial equipment and EPA-certified “Safer Choice” chemicals, we inject the shag rug with hot water, agitate it, then suction out the dirty water. This process is repeated several times until the water is clean and your flokati rug looks pristine.

Facility Cleaning

For shag rugs like flokati rugs, we often recommend facility cleaning. For facility cleaning, your flokati rug is submerged in a shallow pool of water, doused in rug shampoo, and agitated by hand with either a soft hand-brush or a rotary machine. It is then thoroughly rinsed, and the steps are repeated until the rug is completely clean. This process differs from in-home cleaning in that the rug is cleaned completely, from top to bottom, unlike steam cleaning which only cleans the fibers. Due to its fluffy nature and ability to hold on to dirt deep in its weave, we often recommend facility cleaning to ensure the deepest clean possible.

Call us today and book an appointment for a Flokati carpet inspection and allow us to restore your area rugs to their original beauty, texture and softness with some of the lowest rates in the business.
