Cleaning heavy black algae and lichen stains (including "black spot") is now a problem of the past!

Tornado Cleanze

BENZ TORNADO CLEANZE - with "super-stickability"

 

Not just black algae and lichen ("black spot") but all heavy stains and deeply rooted growths can now be easily, quickly and effectively removed by treating them with Tornado Cleanze.

Tornado Cleanze sticks to discoloured surfaces, including vertical render, giving it maximum cleaning power to remove the most stubborn stains

Heavy algae and lichen growth can be challenging to remove using conventional cleaning methods. Even traditional softwashing may not be fully effective, or provide sufficiently fast results.

Tornado Cleanze is the solution. Tornado Cleanze easily, quickly and safely removes stubborn black, green, red and yellow staining from external hard surfaces.

And its rapid, precisely targeted cleaning action means there's no overspray or spray drift onto surrounding properties and plants. 

And it's gel nature means that the potential for splashing into eyes and onto other surfaces is substantially minimised.

What is Tornado Cleanze?

Click here to learn about Tornado Cleanze – the sodium hypochlorite gel with "super-stickability" - capping stones, concrete, brick, path, patio, black algae, black lichen, kill, control, moss, mould, mold, lichen spots, lichen dotsTornado Cleanze is a non-penetrating, very strong sodium hypochlorite gel that stays on the surface. This gives it a long contact time and a remarkable power to oxidise and remove the discolouration caused by micro-organisms.

Simply brush on, leave for a few minutes and rinse – Tornado Cleanze acts fast!

Where to use?

Click here to learn about Tornado Cleanze – the sodium hypochlorite gel with "super-stickability" - capping stones, concrete, brick, path, patio, black algae, black lichen, kill, control, moss, mould, mold, lichen spots, lichen dotsTornado Cleanze can be used as a stand-alone cleaner on paths, patios, driveways, render, concrete, capping stone, sandstone, capping stones, chimneys, brickwork, stonework, window sills, some plastics and most other exterior hard surfaces.

It can also be used as a “spot cleaner” in conjunction with one of our other Benz softwash cleaning products.

For example:

  • Tornado Cleanze can be used to prepare the surface of coloured or plain render before treating with Benz Bio Cleanze.

  • Tornado Cleanze can be used as a topical cleaning product before or after applying Bio Cleanze and Lightning Cleanze, e.g for removing black streaks on render.


The actual sequence of use will depend on the severity and depth of the colonisation, how long it has been allowed to grow into the surface, and the specific requirements of each job and customer.

Tough black spot: Always follow up a treatment of Tornado Cleanze with an application of Bio Cleanze. This is because some, usually small, black spots can be difficult to remove completely at first. But they will disappear over time when treated with Bio Cleanze.

Ideally treat any small remaining black dots with Bio Cleanze at 20/25:1. But not if children or animals will use the area. In that case treat at 50:1 every 6-12 months, which will keep the whole area clean whilst the stubborn black spots gradually release their grip and weather away.

Quick tips:

1) In low temperatures – down to not less than 7 degrees – leave for up to an hour to fully activate.

2) When rinsing use low pressure and minimal agitation to reduce foaming in the rinse water.

Ongoing maintenance: To keep surfaces permanently clean all year around, it's important to post-treat with Bio Cleanze after thoroughly rinsing off Tornado Cleanze.
