Dealing with "boil-off" on a hot day is an important and skillful facet of effective softwashing.
And a summer heatwave brings several challenges, one of which is the change it makes to the chemical properties of softwash cleaning products.High temperatures make both Benz Lightning Cleanze and Benz Bio Cleanze more reactive (i.e. increases their strength). So it’s a good idea to reduce the dilution on very hot days.
On most jobs there will be elevations that are cooler than others. If this is this case then it can be best to use the softwash chemical at normal strength on the cool elevations; and pre-wet the hotter elevations, which will effectively reduce the dilution.
We hope you found this information helpful and inspires you to succeed in your softwashing business.

PS: No two jobs are the same, so, as always, treat a test patch first and proceed with intelligent care.

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.
