Limescale is a deposit of calcium carbonate – the residue left behind by hard water.
Hard water is water that contains a high concentration of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium. When the water evaporates, it leaves behind calcium carbonate deposits on window glass.
Benz Oxy Cleanze is the simplest, easiest and safest way to rapidly remove limescale from window class. No hard scrubbing or scraping required.
Watch the video below to see how quick and simple the process of removing limescale from glass with Oxy Cleanze:
Quick tip: A factor to be aware of is how long the limescale has been on the glass. After some years of exposure to sunlight it's possible that the limescale could become etched into the glass.
Therefore the wise approach is to make your customer aware of this possibility before you begin so they understand the situation. Then treat a small test area with Oxy Cleanze to determine the results you are likely to obtain. Get your customer's agreement that the result is satisfactory and their permission to treat the entire surface before continuing.
We hope this information is helpful.

When soft washing it's vitally important to protect surrounding building materials. e.g. lead flashing. And not to create "clean streaks" – from overspray and run-off – on surfaces that are not part of your contract.

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.
