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!

How can you learn the practical how-to of soft washing quickly, easily and simply – without wasting several years "re-inventing the wheel" – learning through arduous trial and error – when you could have been up and running in a few weeks?
And earning well-deserved profits from a highly efficient soft washing business.
Then there is the thousands of pounds/euros that the unwary, knowing no better, can waste on expensive, and often unnecessary or inappropriate, softwash equipment. We're sure you don't want to be like them.

In this ongoing soft washing video series Ben explains why and how he uses various types of softwash equipment.
What soft washing equipment you choose to build or purchase depends on several factors: for example the number of employees you have and the type of properties you soft wash.

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