Professional Navajo Rug Cleaner

Navajo rugs are recognized by certain characteristics including no fringe, wool and/or cotton yarn, finished edges, tassels at each corner, and a distinctive diagonal weave called “lightning design,” or “scalloped edge weave.” As a professional Navajo rug cleaner, we’ve developed a 10-step process to clean these works of art. It works for Oriental rugs, Chinese rugs, Persian rugs, and Moroccan rugs as well.


We first inspect the rug.


We color test the rug to make sure the color does not run.


We dust the rug with rug dusters.


We wet the rug on our wash floor and scrub and wash both sides.


We thoroughly rinse the rug to make sure no residue remains in the rug.


We place the rug in the centrifuge and spin it. We rinse and spin again. It emerges 90% dry.


We hang the rug on a drying rack and inspect it.


We do touch-up work and clean the fringe.


If the rug smells bad or looks substandard, we repeat the entire process again.


We prepare the rugs for transport. We wrap the rug in brown paper and ready it for transport back to the owner.
