Zerorez Area Rug Treatment

We'll take every precaution to preserve and care for your area rugs with the following process:

Step 1
Inspection

Our Zerorez Clean Experts™ will carefully inspect your rug, identifying what types of fibers the rug is made with, and identifying if there is a concern with bleeding or shrinking. They will look for spots and damage to the rug, taking pictures of the rug to discuss any concerns with you.

Step 2
Dry Soil Removal

Since most of the soil in area rugs is fine-particulate dust and dirt that needs to be removed before wet cleaning, your rug will be carefully treated and vacuumed to remove as much of this dry soil as possible.

Step 3
Submersion Cleaning

Rugs that are heavily soiled or have pet stains should be cleaned in a rug bath; this is where the rug is submerged in a bath of cleaning solution. For pet stains, we use a gentle, wool-safe odor treatment. Rugs that are heavily soiled are cleaned, rinsed, and prepared for finishing and drying.

Step 4
Drying

The excess water is extracted and the rug is inspected to ensure spots, spills, and odors have been removed. If the rug passes inspection, it is carefully groomed to reset the fibers. Different methods of drying are used depending on the type of rug.

Step 5
Premium Fiber Protector (Added Service)

We highly recommend having our Premium Fiber Protector applied to your area rug after it has been cleaned. Protector bonds to the fiber and adds a protective barrier to prevent oil and food-based spills from soaking in. This invisible barrier also helps prevent dry soil from sticking which makes vacuuming more effective.

Step 6
Rug Delivery

After your rug has been cleaned and dried, it is rolled and stored until it is ready to be picked-up or delivered to your home.

Preserve and Protect

Rugs are a beautiful way to add texture, depth, and warmth to your home. But just like your carpets, they are subject to the wear and tear of daily foot traffic. With Zerorez, you can clean and protect your rugs to keep them looking their best!


Most experts recommend at least one annual cleaning for your rugs. A cleaning every six months may be needed in homes with pets and high-traffic areas.

  • No soaps or harsh chemicals
  • Safe for people, pets, and the planet
