The Difference Between Zerorez® and DIY Spot Removal

31 Oct The Difference Between Zerorez® and DIY Spot Removal

Zerorez® believes that a healthy home starts with clean carpets. Nothing cleans more thoroughly or protects your investment better than the revolutionary, patented and green Zerorez® cleaning system. Zerorez® applies its very own Empowered Water™ to your carpet by a patented high-pressure, controlled spray system that loosens embedded dirt and removes it through our powerful and patented extraction wand.

Many of our customers ask us what the difference is between our patented Empowered Water™ and general over-the-counter cleaners. Here’s what could happen to your carpet if you use over-the-counter cleaners instead of our Empowered Water™.

No permanent stain removal – While many over-the-counter cleaners may remove spots in your home, it is only temporary. The chemicals used in the cleaners oftentimes lighten the color of your spot and push the mess deeper into your carpet, making it tougher to eventually get out. You might see an improvement in your carpet right away, but once it dries, the spot may reappear.

Bleach spots – Zerorez®’s Empowered Water™ contains a key ingredient that is missing from the over-the-counter cleaners: water. We like to think of cleaning carpet just like washing hair. When you wash your hair do you ever step out without rinsing out the soap? No! And that’s exactly the same for carpet. Detergent actually bleaches out your carpet and lacks the water to completely wash out the spot which results in discolored bleach marks in your carpet.

Damaged fibers – Oftentimes detergents are filled with chemicals that are too aggressive for carpet. As a result they will strip the stain collection out of the carpet, which will cause permanent damage to the fibers. This will result in a less healthy and rougher feel.

Looking for an immediate solution to a stain? Zerorez® offers two exceptional cleaning products for you to use in-between cleaning services. Each solution is $30 and comes with a lifetime refill for FREE!

Our Zero-Stink is a plant-based product that attacks biological and odor-causing bacteria at the source, such as pet stains and odor.

The Spot Treatment Kit is an all-natural citrus extract that safely and effectively cleans food and beverage spills, oil, dirt and grease spots.
