The Challenge of Navajo Rug Cleaning

The Difficulties of Navajo Rug Cleaning

One of the most critical aspects of Navajo rugs to remember is that the majority of the dyes used in their construction are water-soluble. So you should never hand wash these rugs due to the high risk of the colors bleeding or washing out.

Certain types of Navajo rugs can be dry cleaned. However, it is highly recommended that you consult an expert to determine whether or not it's safe for your rug. Dry cleaning will remove some of the natural oils in the fabric, so owners should keep this in mind when choosing this method.

Vacuuming the rug regularly is necessary because it is at risk of being infested by insects.

It is critical to spread the rug out flat to avoid damaging the fibers or fringe. Typically, this entails the use of a nylon or polyester screen to protect the rug's threads and fragments.

Maintenance Tips For Heirloom Rugs

Rug Maintenance Tips with Heirloom Rug Cleaning

While you should have your rugs professionally cleaned every 12-18 months, you should also perform regular weekly maintenance.

  • Navajo rugs are sturdy and durable enough to be vacuumed 2-3 times a week.
  • Regular vacuuming on both sides of the rug will remove dirt and debris from foot traffic and household dust.
  • Vacuuming should be gentle, and use a suction attachment to prevent damage to carpet fibers.
  • Avoid using vacuums with roller bars that can pull and twist fibers.
  • Do not shake or beat Navajo rugs to remove dust. Rough treatment may fray ends and eventually unravel the yarn fibers.
  • Use a quality pad under your Navajo rug to keep it in place and prevent slipping, sliding, and excessive wear.
  • Rugs in high traffic areas should be rotated every couple of months to extend wear and prevent frayed areas and fading from direct sunlight.
