Wipe resetting free space to zero on encrypted volume?

Im using a fully encrypted mechanical harddrive and wondering if im using a tool like CCleaner och Privazer with a 1 pass wipe resetting the affected allocated space as Zero ("unused") will compromize my encryption somehow?

Even if its not compromizing the encryption, is it generally a good or bad idea to do this in my scenario?
