Benz clean & maintain softwash treatment systems are fantastic for cleaning and then keeping the treated surfaces permanently clean all year.
Surfaces treated by soft washing, or post-treated after power washing, will stay clean far longer than is possible through other cleaning methods, because soft washing kills the algae spores that power washing alone cannot kill.
However one of the nuances of soft washing when maintaining previously cleaned horizontal surfaces, concrete paths and patios in particular, and keeping them clean all year round, is knowing how to deal with the occasional flare up of green algae.
A flare-up of green algae can look seriously dramatic, so your customers need to have the situation explained to them in advance, so they know what to expect and don't start thinking that you've done a bad job.
In the video below Ben shows a couple of examples, outlines the reasons why algae flare-up happens, and explains how to best manage your customers expectations.
We hope this information is helpful and sincerely wish you great success in your soft washing business,
Ben, Leo, Fiona, Stevie & Anthony

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.
