Soft washing heavily blackened stone and concrete window sills and wall capping stones can be challenging. Usually the black is caused by a colonisation of black algae.
In our experience your best bet is to treat them with Benz Tornado Cleanze.
This is just the type of job we created it for. Simply apply neat with a brush, or, if the colonisation is only mild, possibly dilute up to 50%. Activation time needed will depend on the severity of the colonisation.
Quick tip: If you don't have some Tornado Cleanze handy, spray and brush-in Lightning Cleanze at 4:1. Allow plenty of time for activation – 30-60 minutes – and consider multiple treatments.
Whichever treatment you choose, rinse well and remember to protect any plants or lawn that could come into contact with the rinse water.
We hope this information is helpful and sincerely wish you great success in your soft washing business,
Ben, Leo, Fiona, Stevie & Anthony
PS: The above advice assumes the black algae and not carbon, which requires specialist treatment.

Ideally a surface treated with Bio Cleanze should be allowed to fully dry before the onset of rain. But of course we do not live in an ideal world and this is not always practical.

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.
