Flokati Rug Cleaning
In the 5th century, the Greeks who lived in high mountains invented Flokati rugs. For centuries, Flokati rugs and carpets have been an important part of Greek culture and tradition. Their invention of Flokati rugs was do to an easy access to sheep and goats and their wool and hair. They used Flokati rugs as clothing or bedding on the floor to keep them warm in the long and cold winters of their region. The tradition of making Flokati rugs has been continued to the present. Flokati rugs are Shag looking rugs with high and soft wool pile. Although Flokati rugs are a part of the long tradition of the Greeks, many designers today like them and buy them for their clients. The younger generations tend to appreciate Flokati rugs more, for their simplicity and use of solid colors, specially white.
With the beauty of having high pile, comes more care and maintenance with Flokati rugs. The high pile means that Flokati rugs absorb more dust and dirt and are much harder to vacuum and maintain. We get many Flokati rugs for cleaning from our customers. We specialize in cleaning Flokati rugs so all of our customers become satisfied.
