How much does professional rug cleaning cost?


The cost of professional and specialist rug cleaning will vary based on a variety of factors, such as the size of the rug, the material of the rug and the cleaning process that is required.

We offer standard rug washing services, as well as restorative rug washing services (including specialist stain removal, odour removal, and decontamination for rugs affected by fire (smoke) and flood). As a family-run business established in 1989, we treat every precious hand-knotted rug entrusted to us as if it were our own.

Complete removal of stains and odours from your rugs


No matter how careful you are with your rugs, accidents happen. From pet and child mess to red wine spills and tea stains – almost any stain can be removed. The same goes for odours.

Over the years, we’ve managed to remove every stain and odour you can think of, including coffee, tea, tar, nail varnish, chewing gum, smoke, pet urine discolouration, moth infestation and many more. We’ve seen them all, so please don’t be worried about calling us to help you.

Many of these stains can be complex to remove due to the nature of the variety of substances engrained in the rug fibres. Their removal takes patience and knowledge to determine the fibre type, dye stability and finishing agents and which treatments are best suited to gain the optimum results for your cherished Persian & Oriental rug.

We can say with absolute conviction “If we can’t remove a stain or odour from your rug, then no-one can!”

How does the specialist rug cleaning service work?


After your first point of contact with us, we will be able to visit your premise and give you a specific quote for following a pre-clean survey. From there, we can arrange a time to collect your rug, before taking it on to our premises where the cleaning process can begin.

Once the rug is clean and dry, we will be in touch with you to inform you that we are ready to drop it off. Your rug will be returned back to your property, unpacked and repositioned in a room of your choice. If you’d prefer to unpack it yourself at a later date or leave it packed for storage, that’s fine. We will do whatever is most convenient for you.`

How do we clean your rugs?


The recommended method for cleaning natural fibre rugs is professional full immersion rug cleaning. The step by step rug cleaning process includes colour fastness testing, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning, specialist stain/odour removal, rinsing, conditioning, drying, pile grooming, hand finishing and packing.

We also choose a specific cleaning method that suits the material of your particular rug. By doing so, we’re able to produce the absolute best results, without running the risk of damage, such as shrinkage or colour run.

No hidden costs or surprise fees


Call us old fashioned, but we believe that you should always meet the person who will be cleaning your rug and receive a written quotation to ensure you know the exact price you are going to pay.

That’s why we will always arrange a convenient time to visit and carry out a pre-clean survey and full inspection of your rug, giving you the opportunity to meet us and discuss any marks/stains/odours which are of concern to you.

If you’re happy with our quotation, we can leave you with a receipt and take your rug away to be cleaned at our purpose-built rug cleaning facility. Think of it as sending your favourite rug off to a rug spa for some relaxation and rejuvenation.

Get a free pre-clean survey


So, if you think it’s time your rug received some TLC, get in touch with us to arrange a free, no obligation pre-clean survey so that we can provide a quote. Simply call directly on the number above and a friendly member of staff will be happy to help.

I thoroughly recommend Darren and his team at Absolutely Fabulous for their professional service from start to finish. The colours in my two plant dyed rugs, one a long kelim runner, have come alive again. I couldn’t be more pleased. In every way a lovely firm to deal with.

We want to thank Daren and team for a job well done. They were very punctual on collecting and delivering the carpet.Our Wool Gabbeh rug was cleaned at their facility. The rug was power vacuumed, pet stains and marks were treated, cleaned, dried, sanitised, deodorised and finally scotchgarded.The carpet looks brand new! It hasn't felt so clean and soft under foot in a very long time. Thank you again. We very highly recommend your services.

Very easy to interact with this company. Fast response time to queries and good communication throughout. I had a large thick wool rug to be cleaned. It now looks bright again after washing and removal of layers of muddy dog and human footprints. Would definitely recommend.

Very professional and reliable. Cleans rugs of all kinds, including Silk, Persian, Oriental and Wool. All very well cleaned, sanitised and deodorised. Can deal very effectively with pet urine accidents, coffee and red wine stains. Have seen these rugs returned looking and smelling great. It really is an Absolutely Fabulous service. Highly recommend.

Great service that removes the rug, and returns It clean and bone dry! I live in a drafty old house so cleaning & drying in situ isn’t the best as something this heavy will likely mildew. Plus the newly adopted pooch peed on it - even more reason why this solution was ideal. 🐕
