Carpet, Upholstery, and Rugs
Zerorez® Fiber Protector™ is a totally new formula that represents the cutting edge of carpet protectors today. It uses state-of-the-art, environmentally safe fluorochemical technology to protect against damaging dry soils as well as both water-based and oil-based spills. But the real key is how Zerorez® Fiber Protector™ coats fibers with a stain barrier to protect them from difficult dye stains "from the inside out".
Traditional protectors rely on a repellency barrier across the top of carpeting to protect carpet fibers.
And while such protectors perform well, especially when spills are cleaned up immediately, once a spill penetrates the protective barriers of repellent protectors they immediately bond to the fiber, creating difficult-to-remove stains.
A Word About Olefin and Polyester Carpets:
Many people are under the impression that their olefin and polyester carpets are "stain-proof " and therefore don't need carpet protector. And while these fibers are naturally stain-resistant when it comes to dye stains, olefin and polyester carpets still need protection.
Why? Both olefin and polyester fibers love oily soils and absorb it quite easily. This is why many such carpets develop a yellow cast over time from oily residues that have bonded with the fibers. Olefin and polyester are also very susceptible to damage from dry soils that scratch the fibers and create appearance loss that cannot be corrected by cleaning or anything else. And since these fibers love oily soils, dry soils stick easily where they are ground into the fibers by foot traffic, accelerating the fiber damage with a sandpaper effect.
But now you can help your customers protect their olefin and polyester carpets from this damage by protecting them with Zerorez® Fiber Protector™. That's because, unlike traditional protectors, Maxim™ Advanced has been designed to adhere to olefin and polyester and will provide extremely high levels of protection against oily and dry soils.
