There's loads of highly profitable work available in soft washing steel and aluminium industrial cladding

The best-known brand of steel cladding is Kingspan Cladding, who have confirmed that Benz Lightning Cleanze is suitable to safely and effectively soft wash Kingspan steel cladding.

Watch the short how-to video below to learn how to soft wash Kingspan industrial cladding using Lightning Cleanze at only 10:1 dilution 

 

We hope this information is helpful and sincerely wish you great success in your soft washing business,

Hi Joe and thanks for your question,

I am unsure what Kingspan “pdf” cladding is. Could you give more details?

Certainly with regular Kingspan steel cladding Blackwash at 10:1 should easily take care of the problem. In the video you see Ben using Blackwash at 10:1 on steel cladding and there’s no need to follow up with Biocidal Wash.

On render we recommend post-treating with Biocidal Wash no later than 12 months following initial cleaning with Blackwash. This will ensure the spores are killed deep into the render and will leave a residual protection that will ensure your customer can enjoy clean render for 2-3 years on average (depending on prevailing weather and location – can be longer). You can post-treat on the day of cleaning with Blackwash if your customer wants the best possible clean and protect service and is willing to pay the extra.

I hope this helps.

best wishes,

Leo
