For more than 134 years, Fred Remmers Rug Cleaners & Oriental Rug Gallery has served clients that need comprehensive rug cleaning services. We have four generations of service under our belts. In an industry dominated by word-of-mouth recommendations, a bad review or a ruined rug can lead to a devalued reputation. Our company treats every client as if they were family.

Our professionals take care of every client from start to finish, whether you are buying a rug or getting a standard cleaning service. We work with you to get your rug looking as good as new by eliminating issues like frays, dirt, and even color bleeding. Trust us to maintain the value of your oriental rugs and to fall back on our 134 years of customer experience.



The company began in 1881 as a rug cleaning business. While times and technology has changed, the baseline of our business remains the same. We still actually use a lot of the same methods in place over 100 years ago. For a short time, our company did offer installation and cleaning of wall-to-wall carpeting but this lasted about 20 to 30 years in the scope of our extensive history.

When Fred Remmers Sr., the second generation of the company, passed away, his son Fred Jr. decided to work toward a big comeback. He bought the five remaining rug-cleaning companies in Memphis to truly take hold of the market. Currently, the store is operated by Pamela Remmers who is part of the fourth generation of the Remmers family.
