Clear and easy to read – with loads of photographs that show the principles of softwashing render in action – this large, full-colour printed paperback book defines what really works when it comes to softwashing wall render.
The practical knowledge contained within the pages of the book comes from several years trial and error experience.
For the first time softwashing render has been explained in a straightforward way that shows both novice and seasoned professional alike a step-by-step approach that simply works.
The manual outlines the basics of softwashing and then goes on to explain specific techniques for treating render. The numerous before and after photographs illustrate the methods described in the text, making it highly accessible to everyone.
This is the first illustrated paperback book of its kind to enter the UK and Irish markets and as far as we know is unique in the world. Written in layman’s language, the manual is easy to read while giving the reader a professional understanding of, and therefore greater competency in, softwashing render.
This means it’s now possible to get going and successfully run a softwashing business far more quickly than was previously the case – simply because readers of this manual will not have to “re-invent the wheel”.
No way! The manual is a practical how-to guide that every softwashing contractor will want to carry with them in their van for easy and quick reference.
It explains how the specialised Benz “Clean & Maintain” softwashing system – using two powerful biocides that are fully approved by the EU and the Irish and UK governments – first cleans the render, and then keeps it clean much longer than other methods.
Contractors tendering for large commercial and industrial contracts will find this softwashing manual a dream come true – as a copy placed in the hands of a corporate decision maker will boost the contractor’s professional credibility way above all competition.
Like it or hate it, H&S is a fact of modern business life. H&S inspectors have the power to close down businesses who do not comply with the regulations. So the manual includes the essential health, safety and technical product information that is vital for all softwash professionals to know and apply.
The manual supplies all the information a softwashing contractor needs to work effectively, profitably, safely and comply with all the regulations.

When soft washing it's vitally important to protect surrounding building materials. e.g. lead flashing. And not to create "clean streaks" – from overspray and run-off – on surfaces that are not part of your contract.

It's a free resource for people wanting to learn about the soft washing industry, to expand an existing business, or build a new business.
Soft washing reduces, or even eliminates, the need to use high-pressure washing.
Instead, once the build up of algae, lichen, fungus, moss and mould – the root causes of properties looking "dirty" – has been treated, the natural "self-cleansing" of sun, rain and wind removes the surface residue through time.
By educating the cleaning trade and public about soft washing we are helping develop an industry that offers sustainable treatments to clean and maintain exterior hard surfaces.
