Cleaning carpet and other surfaces in your home with Zerorez is the first step to a healthier indoor environment. Zerorez knows how to keep soft surfaces like carpet, rugs and upholstery cleaner for even longer!
Loosens the deeply embedded dirt that’s stuck in your carpet fibers.
A more complete clean with significantly improved dry times.
Leaves no residue which means soft carpets that stay cleaner longer.
Carpet and other soft surfaces in your home have an inherent weakness — they don’t last forever. It’s what we call fiber degradation. Carpet, rugs and upholstery all have lifespan where we know they will wear out and need to be replaced.
Dirt, oils, and common spills cling to your fibers until the next cleaning finally removes them. But what if dirt and spills couldn’t hold on? What if dirt couldn't stick to the fibers and was sucked right up each time you vacuumed?
That is what Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™ does for carpet, rugs and upholstery! It makes the surface slippery at the molecular level. Spilled drinks won’t absorb into the fibers, and dirt and oils can’t stick to the outside. Surfaces that don't hold onto dirt have been proven to live a much longer and cleaner life!
Traditional protectors rely on a repellent barrier across the top of carpeting to protect carpet fibers. And while such protectors perform well, when spills are cleaned up immediately, once a spill penetrates the barriers of repellent protectors they immediately bond to the fiber, creating difficult to remove stains.
Because Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™ protects the fiber completely, not just at the top, spills will not bead up and then soak through to create stains. Zerorez uses an environmentally safe, water-based fluorochemical technology. Not only does it protect against oil and water-based spills, as well as dry soils, it also protects fibers from the toughest dye stains.
Carpets come from the factory with protectant applied to the fibers. Foot traffic, vacuuming, and even cleanings can slowly remove the protectant in traffic lanes. Carpet without protectant will permanently absorb stains; and dirt and oils will stick to the fibers and cause traffic lanes to darken quickly.
With Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™, your vacuuming is much more efficient because the dirt won’t stick to the slick surface the protectant creates. Spills will sit on top of fibers instead of absorbing and bonding with the fiber. Zerorez recommends protecting rooms with moderate to heavy foot traffic each time you clean.
Most Oriental Rugs do not come from the factory with protectant applied. This can be dangerous to the fibers if spills are able to penetrate and stain. Or if pets discolor your rug through urinating. Protecting your investment is the only way to minimize the risk of permanent damage on fine fabrics.
The cloth seats in your car take a beating — kids, pets, soccer games! Do NOT get your seats and mats cleaned by the local car wash detailers. They load the fabric with detergents and shampoos, which will actually make them attract dirt! Zerorez can clean and protect car interiors to remove the dirt AND apply a protectant to the fabric, to keep spots and spills from becoming permanent stains.
If for any reason you are unhappy with your cleaning, we'll gladly return to re-clean any areas you're unsatisfied with.
Many people wonder whether it’s worth the extra time and cost to get carpet protector. The short answer is, it depends! It depends on the actual formula of the carpet protector and on the service provider applying the protector to your carpet. Assuming an effective formula and a trustworthy service provider, the answer is a certain yes.
Zerorez utilizes Premium Fiber Protectant™, which prevents dirt and spills from seeping into the carpet fibers. This way, every time you vacuum, you pick up any dirt and debris from your carpeting instead of letting it cling to the deep layers of carpet. Not only does this carpet protector prevent ongoing stains from dirty shoes and pet debris, but it also protects against dye stains and water-based spills.
While some carpet protector formulas simply create a top layer over the carpet, Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™ protects even the deepest carpet fibers. With thoughtful application by our team of reliable professionals, this carpet protectant can greatly extend the lifespan of your carpets.
In the end, while these services do come with a small additional cost, extending the life of your carpets and rugs while keeping them beautiful, soft, and stain-free is well worth it. Carpets and rugs make up some of the largest investments in interior design, so allowing them to last years longer than they otherwise could have is worth the additional time and cost. For a green solution that supports your healthy home, trust the professionals at Zerorez.

Carpets are built to last anywhere from five to twenty years depending on the fiber and quality. Factory protectant wears off over time and re-applying protectant after each cleaning keeps the original protectant from deteriorating.
Think of it like the paint finish on your car. It protects your vehicle's color from sand damage and UV fading. Waxing your car protects the original factory finish so it never loses its clarity. THAT is what Zerorez Premium Fiber Protection™ services in Calgary do for your carpet — protects the original factory protectant so your carpet looks new for as long as possible!
If you live in a house, use household appliances, cook using non-stick pans, own furniture or drive a car… you’re already surrounded by, and benefiting from, protective coatings. Fluorocarbon protectors are considered to be safe and non-toxic once applied to the carpet.
The best eco-friendly feature of protectants is extending the life of your carpet! The number one reason for replacing carpet is due to it looking old and worn, which accounts for almost 5 billion pounds of carpet going to landfills each year in the US. Homeowners could realistically get 20% more life out of their carpet with proper maintenance and protectants… we could keep approximately a billion pounds of plastics out of landfills each year. That IS green!
After surfaces are cleaned the technician applies protectant by spraying it onto the carpet, rug or upholstery and brushes/grooms it in to evenly coat the fibers. Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™ uses almost half the water of other protectants and dries twice as quickly.
Once dry, protectant seals the fiber with a coating that has an extremely low coefficient of friction. Simply put, dirt won’t stick. Liquids bead up, making it easy to clean up. And oils won’t absorb into the fibers. It’s just like the Teflon® pan you own… but for your carpet!
Carpet warranties cover mostly food-based spots and spills. The truth is, that’s because protectants are most effective against those kinds of stains. Protectants are definitely helpful against certain chemicals, inks and dyes, and give homeowners more time to clean them up, but there is no guarantee that they will eliminate all stains.
Zerorez Premium Fiber Protectant™ is intended to last from cleaning to cleaning. We recommend re-applying after each Zerorez cleaning in your moderate to heavy use rooms, any rooms where you allow eating or drinking on the carpet, or rooms where pets frequently live on the carpet.
