Navajo Rug Cleaning and Repairing in Greater Baltimore, MD

The unique materials and construction of Navajo rugs require a specific cleaning process conducted by an expert trained in the characteristics and familiar with the age and providence of the rug's materials. These rugs cannot be dropped off at the neighborhood dry cleaner or steam cleaned at home with rental equipment from the neighborhood grocery. Traditional chemical or steam techniques can harm the original dyes and wools, resulting in severe color bleeding and shrinkage.

Hydro Clean Rug Care treats every textile with care. We don’t mindlessly put chemicals into a machine, hoping that it will do the job. Each Navajo rug is unique and requires a precise cleaning. Through our experience with Navajo rugs we have developed a proprietary method that effectively cleans and restores your heirloom.

Navajo Rug Cleaning Process

Navajo Rug Cleaning

Your Navajo rug gets our special cleaning method:

  • Evaluation of the condition of the rug.
  • Development of a cleaning strategy.
  • Preparation of a cost estimate based on the unique condition of the rug and risk factors associated with the cleaning.
  • We wash each rug by hand. Your item will never be relegated to an apprentice.
  • Each item is placed in our custom washbasin and soaked with water.
  • Once wet, we hand scrub both sides with a neutral ph balanced paste detergent that is gentle to the dyes found in Navajo rugs.
  • After the first cleaning pass we revisit each problem area to make sure that the pre-treating has worked. If it has not, we continue to work on each area.
  • Once the rug is completely clean, it is gently rinsed by hand with water, paying attention to weak or damaged areas.
  • Once all cleaning agents are removed, a wet vacuum -- the first and only mechanical tool used in the process -- removes additional water.
  • Still, the wet vacuum does not remove all the water. We lay out the textile in our drying basin for air-drying to complete the process. We use a series of fans for this process.
