In brief: How deep?

How much do you weigh? If your naval is deep due to obesity, there are more than enough reasons to lose weight, hygiene of the naval being a lesser of the considerations.
Otherwise cleaning the pit with a towel on your finger should be sufficient. If you have any rash, infection, discharge etc, see your doctor. A naval can be removed without any ill-effects.
