Is clear and easy to read – with loads of photographs showing the principles of soft washing in action.
Explains the how-to of soft washing in a straightforward way that's easy to understand.
Contains practical knowledge that comes from several years trial and error "hands-on" soft washing experience.
The manual outlines the basics of soft washing and then demonstrates specific techniques for soft washing render. The numerous before and after photographs illustrate the methods described in the text, making the manual accessible to everyone.
This is the only fully illustrated paperback of its kind available in the UK and Ireland. And we believe it to be unique in the world.
Written in down-to-earth language, the manual is easy to read while giving the reader a professional understanding of, and greater skills in, soft washing in general and soft washing render in particular.
This means it’s now possible to get going and successfully run a soft washing business much more quickly than before – simply because readers of this manual will not have to “re-invent the wheel” through arduous and expensive trial and error experience.
No way! It is a practical how-to guide that every soft washing contractor will want to carry with them for quick and easy reference.
The manual explains how the specialised Benz “Clean & Maintain” softwash system – using two powerful biocides that are fully approved by the Irish and UK governments – first cleans the render, and then keeps it clean far longer than other methods.
Yes! Although focused primarily on treating render, you'll find the principles of soft washing also apply to soft washing paths, patios, driveways, brickwork, concrete, tarmac, play areas, tennis courts, tiled and slate roofs, and wooden sheds, fences and decking.
We hope you find this information helpful.
Our sincere wishes for a good life and a profitable business,
Ben, Leo & Fiona
We know many soft wash contractors think of Health & Safety legislation as a "necessary evil". And we don't exactly get excited about it either ...
But we all have to face reality. Like it or not, Health and Safety legislation is a fact of modern business life. And a serious fact at that.
Because Health & Safety inspectors have the power to close down and fine businesses who do not comply with their regulations
That's why we included the essential health, safety and technical product information in the manual. Boring though it may be to some, it is vital for all soft washing professionals to understand the law and to remain compliant with it.

We recently tested – just out of curiosity – some old Tornado Cleanze that was nearly two months past it's best-by date. We wanted to find out how long it could be stored for and still produce effective results. And stored badly at that ...

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.
