Rug Cleaning and Restoration Workshops

We have two cleaning and restoration workshops in the UK- one just outside Edinburgh and one in the Midlands. Each year we clean and repair in excess of 1000 rugs. All rugs are cleaned by hand and all repairs are carried out by our experienced team of rug repairers from Persia/Iran. We clean all types of wool and silk handmade rugs and we are able to repair all types of damage.

Free collections and deliveries of rugs for cleaning and repair are available throughout Scotland and England.

We can also restore flood and smoke/fire damaged rugs and we can work with your insurers if the work is a part of a claim.

Rug Cleaning

We clean all types of handmade wool and silk rugs, carpets, runners and kilims in our workshops including very fine wool rugs, fragile and antique pieces and pure silk rugs among others. We specialise in handmade oriental rugs (made in Iran/Persia, India, Turkey, Afghanistan and China) but we also clean North African and European rugs.

We only clean rugs by hand and using traditional techniques and tools. This is a very time consuming process, but it is the only safe and effective way to clean and maintain hand-made rugs.

Over a thousand rugs and kilims are cleaned in our workshops every year and our knowledge and unrivalled experience means we are able to clean rugs and carpets many other workshops in the UK aren’t.

Rug Repair and Restoration

We only employ the best and the most experienced rug restorers and former weavers from Iran/Persia and all wool, cotton and silk we use for repairs is sourced by us from Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey. 

Our repair projects range from fairly straightforward fringe and side repairs to full restorations of very old rugs or carpets damaged in floods, by pets or moths. 

We are able to repair any damage of any handmade rugs and all repairs are always only done by hand by us.

Customers' testimonials

“Excellent expert professional cleaning and repair on our collection of oriental rugs. They were sent off with Michael, filthy and sad, and returned two weeks later bright and restored to their original glory”

Mrs Malcolm, Edinburgh

“My rug was beautifully cleaned by Jacoby Rugs – a very speedy, friendly and efficient service. My rug was collected and returned to me, so it was very easy. It now looks sparkling clean and smells fresh and lovely. I am delighted. Thank you Jacoby Rugs!”

Mrs MacGregor, Scottish Borders

“My aged, very dirty rug was collected, cleaned, repaired and delivered back to me in mint condition and exactly when they said it would be. Jacoby’s service was excellent.”

Clair, Oxford

“My most precious belonging is my gorgeous, historic Persian rug. It’s an absolute talking point and it brings character and warmth to the many homes I’ve lived in over the years. As it’s an integral part of my home I have regularly had it professionally cleaned. Michael from Jacoby Rugs provided me with the most knowledgeable historical information about my rug and this, combined with the best cleaning and service I have ever received, means I can’t recommend them more highly. They clearly love what they do.”

Lorraine, Leamington Spa

“Jacoby Rugs have recently cleaned a rug for us as unfortunately one of our cats had a little accident on it and the smell of urine was awful. The rug was bought some 26 years ago whilst living abroad and had never been cleaned professionally before and was well overdue! Also after many moves we had lost all the original sale paperwork so were unsure of the rug’s origins. Michael collected the rug very promptly after we agreed the quote. It was returned to us within a very sensible time frame looking bright and smelling so fresh! The tassels were back to white and even the very old coffee/wine stains were either gone or much less noticeable. They were able to identify the origins of our beautiful rug as being Indian and provided us with the necessary paperwork. I would thoroughly recommend Jacoby Rugs – their service is prompt, professional and very friendly and excellent value. I will definitely send my other rugs to them for cleaning in the future.”

Lindsay, Bedfordshire

“We bought a beautiful, but filthy, Khum rug at auction. From our first contact with Michael at Jacoby Rugs, we were confident that it would be in safe hands for cleaning. We were not wrong. Our rug was returned to us looking like new. The team at Jacoby did a brilliant job in restoring the rug to its original colour and condition.This is a friendly family company, providing a professional and honest service. They are clearly passionate about rugs and providing first class customer service. We will certainly use them again and recommend their service without hesitation.”
