What's the difference between Benz Bio Cleanze and new Perma Cleanze?

Hi guys,

You may notice a new Benz product on our website: Benz Perma Cleanze

So we thought to let you know what this new product is and why we have introduced it.

Quite simply, it's a DIY version of Benz Bio Cleanze that we are allowed to sell to the general public. (you probably already know that sales of the more concentrated Bio Cleanze are legally restricted to professional cleaning contractors)

So for most trade work you'll probably want to continue using Bio Cleanze.

However ... if you get a contract to clean the car parks and paths around, for example, a large office complex, you may find that the management want only the very safest products to be brought onto site.

In this case you could offer to treat with Perma Cleanze as the long-term solution to keeping their property permanently clean.

Management will also be re-assured to know that, as with our other Benz softwash products, Perma Cleanze has been fully approved by the UK and Irish governments.

Quick tip: The DDAC % of Perma Cleanze is about 5%, which compares to the 50% DDAC in Bio Cleanze – and which means it is much safer to have on site.

We hope this clarifies the situation.


Ben, Leo & Fiona

Hi Donald, You will not be bound by a yearly contract by purchasing Perma Cleanze, which is available to the general public. We cannot advise on a product’s suitability for any given task unless we see photos of the property to be treated. Please send photos and a description of the problem to support@benzsoftwash.com and we will be happy to advise on the most effective treatment method.

Hi, I have black / green staining on my external walls, it looks like its from algae, moss and lichen. Would Perma clenze be sufficient to clean this off my walls. Also am I bound by a yearly contract if I purchased this, is it available to the general public.
Thanking you. Don

We recently tested – just out of curiosity – some old Tornado Cleanze that was nearly two months past it's best-by date. We wanted to find out how long it could be stored for and still produce effective results. And stored badly at that ...

Want to know what happened? (the results even surprised us)

Huge thanks to all our customers for your loyalty in making Benz your softwash product supplier of choice. We appreciate the fact that so many of our trade customers come back to us week after week, month after month, year after year. 

And by way of practical appreciation, we've decided to no longer pro-actively seek domestic customers for our products and will not knowingly sell products to the customers of our trade customers, i.e. those who want to play around with d.i.y.
