Do you need a power/pressure/jet washer to get started in softwashing?
Most of the time you'll find you won't need a power/pressure washer (sometimes called a jet washer) to do the initial softwash cleaning. Softwashing is a technique that largely, although not completely, supersedes the need for a power/pressure washer.
Exceptions can be pre-cleaning wooden structures that are badly colonised by algae (wooden decking, wooden fences, wooden sheds, wooden cladding) and removing black lichen from concrete.
Benz Softwash cleaning products can do both jobs by themselves but a light power / pressure washer, used carefully at a low pressure setting and/or with a wide fan jet held back from the surface, can speed things up and is also useful for rinsing.
And for softwashing wood, depending on the type of wood, pre-cleaning the algae with a light pressure wash can produce a more pleasing final result that many customers like.
A pressure washer is useful when used with a rinsing nozzle for rapidly rinsing a surface following softwashing with Benz Lightning Cleanze.
Quick tip: Do not rinse Benz Bio Cleanze after treating a surface.
Quick tip: Once you've got a customer's property clean, set them up with an ongoing maintenance programme.
At this point in the development of your business Bio Cleanze will be doing most of the work and pressure washing will have become largely redundant. Simply spray & go!

The good news is that there are ZERO customs duties to pay on Benz products.
Brexit has brought about many changes and challenges to business supply chains. And there's a lot of fear floating about regarding the excess taxes being levied on customers when ordering from EU-based companies.
So we want to reassure all our customers that we are able to continue supplying both our Irish and UK customers - with no additional duty, customs costs, or delays.

In this third video in our "Building a Softwashing Van" series, Ben waterproofs the van floor. To do this he has to complete some important preparatory tasks that must be done first to ensure there are no leaks further down the line.

We've been asked about the length of time a property will stay clean after being treated with Benz Bio Cleanze or Perma Cleanze (both products have the same active ingredient: DDAC). So we wrote this Trade Tips post to explain.
