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.

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

Are pencil jets or fan jets best for soft washing brushes?

July 21, 2021

We use pencil jets in our brushes because we've found they don't clog or break as much as fan jets.

In the case of the Gardiner 45cm brush we use four of them. We turn the pump down so the flow rate is acceptable and does not produce much run-off.

Flow control at the pole is still critical however. Click the link on this page to learn about the solution we've found to be so successful ...
