The active ingredient used in Benz Bio Cleanze needs to be left for several months for it's full cleaning effect to be seen. Leaving it without rinsing also allows it to soak deeply into porous surfaces, which helps prevent the re-colonisation of algae, mould, moss and lichen.
Once dry, a surface treated with Bio Cleanze at a maximum dilution of 50:1 will be safe for children and pets to walk on.
Quick tip: It's important to watch out for "pooling" on surfaces that have poor drainage, where the chemical can collect in hollows. Just brush the pooling away and allow the surface to dry.

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.
