When will a surface be safe for children and pets to walk on after softwashing?

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.

The most important point is to prevent children and animals coming into contact with any undiluted product via spillages or unprotected containers. Clearly this cannot happen if strict softwashing safety precautions are adhered to.

Children and animals must be kept well away from the softwash working area until the treated surface has dried. At no time should children and pets be allowed to roam freely around the softwash working area.

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.


We hope this helps clarify how to keep children and pets safe when softwashing with Bio Cleanze.

Cheers,

Ben, Leo

BREXIT – THE GOOD NEWS!

January 27, 2021 2 Comments

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.
