Industrial cladding cleans up well with Benz Lightning Cleanze but sometimes rust stains from steel fittings can detract from an otherwise excellent result.
The picture below shows a typical example of how rust staining can occur on industrial cladding.
We first applied Benz Oxy Cleanze by brush and left it to work for two hours. Then we thoroughly rinsed it from the surface of the cladding.
Quick tip: Rust marks which have built up over several years will likely take longer to remove and may benefit from gentle agitation immediately before rinsing. Sometimes a second application may be required.
We've never noticed any undesirable bleaching or staining when using Oxy Cleanze rust removal gel on various types of steel and aluminium industrial cladding.
Simply apply to the cladding, leave on for a few hours and rinse off. Depending on the degree of staining allowing an activation time of 12 hours or more can be beneficial.
Avoid applying to cladding during very hot weather so it does not dry out.
Yes. Bear in mind though that, if it's bare aluminium, Benz Oxy Cleanze will make it very bright. So treat a small test patch first and get your customer's agreement that the result is satisfactory before treating the whole surface.
If the aluminium cladding is coated with something, uPVC for example, then there should be no problem.
Quick tip: Aluminium dulls with age and oxidation and eventually the bright shiny patch will also dull.

Soft washing can be carried out all year round when the temperature is not freezing or near freezing. The main thing to consider is that softwash chemicals will take longer to produce their full effect in cold conditions.

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.
