What's the best way to softwash uPVC fascia, soffit, gutters & painted surfaces? (video how-to)
We are frequently asked if Benz Lightning Cleanze is suitable for cleaning uPVC – such as fascia, soffit, gutters, doors and windows – and painted surfaces.
The answer is Yes, it does an excellent job in only a few minutes. And at only 10:1 dilution.
Most of the time only one spray coat is needed and it's a simple "spray on – rinse off" process.
- If the uPVC is particularly dirty, gently agitating the treated surface with a soft brush can significantly speed up the cleaning process.
- In very hot weather a strong solution of LIghtning Cleanze can sometimes produce a temporary discolouration. This usually fades in a few days but can be prevented by a) treating at no stronger than 10:1 dilution b) pre-cooling the surface with a light water spray c) working at the coolest time of day.
Watch the video below to see Ben demonstrate the principles of softwashing uPVC on a customer's property using Lightning Cleanze. (He also talks you through the various stages and techniques involved in softwashing uPVC and painted surfaces)
Note: Ben refers to "Blackwash", which was an earlier name for Lightning Cleanze. The product is the same.

That's a reasonable question.
You could jet wash a roof and then treat with Bio Cleanze.
But why would you?
