What's the best way to softwash wet pour safety surfaces?
A customer asked us, "Could you recommend the best product to clean wet pour safety surfaces?"
We replied: Benz Lightning Cleanze applied to a wet pour surface at 10-5:1 dilution (always treat a small test patch to determine the optimum dilution for the specific wet pour surface you are treating) followed by a gentle rinsing with a pressure washer works well.
Quick tip: Set the power washer to very low pressure, or fit a fan jet and/or hold it back from the surface.
Power washing alone can sometimes get the worst of the filth off, but you need to be very careful or it can easily damage the surface. And of course it will not kill the spores, which means that the wet pour surface will rapidly recolonise. Putting your customer an ongoing maintenance programme – offering re-treatments every 6-12 months – will ensure that the surfaces remain permanently clean.
Using Lightning Cleanze before using a power washer enables a much lower water pressure to be used, thus safeguarding the surface. Most of the time the power washer is only used for rinsing, so the pressure can be set to tap water level.
We hope this information is helpful.
