What our customers say about us

"We were advised by one ‘specialist’ cleaning company that our badly stained 30 year old Nepalese Sherpa rug had only a 5-10% chance of being cleaned successfully. We then contacted Jacoby Rugs and Michael was confident that they could remove the stains and clean the rug. The end result far exceeded our expectations, the stains have been removed and the rug has been completely rejuvenated with colours back to original and the finish/handle is fantastic. Thank you Jacoby Rugs"
Mr Smith
Shropshire. September 2020
"We cannot speak highly enough of Michael at Jacoby Rugs. He has been incredibly helpful since the first time I made my enquiry regarding cleaning my 44 year old very large Indian rug. It has just been returned today and cannot believe how he seems to have restored it to such a beautiful state, with new fringes and bright colours. We are very grateful for all his hard work and professionalism and highly recommend him to anyone who are in need of this Lind of service – you will be AMAZED!!!!"
Mrs Pearce
Tyneside, August 2020
"Contacted Jacoby Rugs they gave us quotes from the size and description of our rugsand when we arranged a date for collection they turned on time. Two weeks later they contacted us and arranged to return our beloved Chinese rugs. We were really pleased with the results they both looked like new. Michael explained what had been done and how to look after them in the future. During every stage in dealing with this company we were treated in a friendly and pleasant manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jacoby Rugs"
Mr Williams
Solihull, July 2020
"We had our silk rug repaired and cleaned after being damaged by mice and the rug is now as good as new! Michael gave us a choice of three options to repair the damage, with appropriate costings and a detailed explanation of the pros and cons of each, most helpful and informative. A superb,high quality repair and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending Jacoby Rugs"
Mr and Mrs MacKenzie
Fife. February 2020
"The quality of the repair to our badly damaged Kachan rug is astounding. Although a large corner (50 cm x 80 cm) was completely destroyed by putrefaction, neither my wife, nor my son, nor myself were able to tell which corner was the one which had been repaired! Jacoby Rugs’s quotation was approximately half the price quoted by leading London specialists, so I was apprehensive as to the quality of the result. Having witnessed a return of our rug to the original in colour, drawing and texture, I can heartily recommend Michael Jacoby’s firm and suggest that anyone interested in a repair request the photographs of our rug “before and after”! And the work was completed a few days ahead of schedule"
Mr Cox-Nicol
Berkshire, February 2020
"A thoroughly professional service from Jacoby Rugs. I have had two rugs cleaned by this company, a Persian and a very dirty Turkish rug. Both were returned in perfect condition, looking like new with all stains removed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future. Michael and his team provide an exceptional service"
