does anyone have an idea how I can get a large rug cleaned? not quite sure if it's cotton or wool, it's quite tightly would just be a pity to bin it...

Lots of carpet cleaners online. Google Oriental rug cleaning, They collect the rug. clean/repair and deliver it back. I used a company a couple of years ago based in Rotherhithe I think but can't remember the name.
It's not cheap and unless the rug is particularly valuable it's probably not worth doing sadly. You can buy pretty good second-hand oriental carpets at auction houses.

Or you could hire a carpet cleaning machine.

You can roll it out on a patio and wash it with a garden hose and brush. You can also use washing powder and a frabic conditioner. Once complete roll it up and stand it so the water can drain away. When most of the water has drained out you can hang it somewhere (garden fence) to fully dry.

I believe that some Car Wash places clean rugs? The Car Wash on Evelina Road always has a different selection of rugs hung over the railings each day, so perhaps worth asking there!
