Why is it important to allow time for Benz Bio Cleanze to work?

Benz Softwash Bio Cleanze DDAC biocide

The cleaning effect that comes from treating a surface with Benz Bio Cleanze (a DDAC based biocide) emerges through time, as a result of nature's own weathering effect. This is why educating your customers not to expect instant results is so important.


The time taken for softwashing results to show depends on multiple factors, such as:

  • The type of colonisation
  • The type of surface being treated
  • The local environment
  • The prevailing weather
  • How long the colonisation has been allowed to grow without treatment


Depending on the above factors it could be days, weeks, or several months before the full results of a treatment with Bio Cleanze will show. The end result however is well-worth waiting for because the effect of a treatment with Bio Cleanze will last longer than by any other softwashing or cleaning method.

Want rapid softwashing results?

If you or your customers want more rapid results – maybe because your customer is putting their property on the market or has a special event like a wedding reception coming up – then use Benz Lightning Cleanze first.

Then, if your customer is not about to leave any time soon, follow up with Bio Cleanze, which will impart greater longevity to the overall softwashing treatment. 

Also use Bio Cleanze for your "Spray & Go" ongoing softwash maintenance programme.

The Benz Softwash eco-advantage

The fact that Bio Cleanze works with nature is a BIG selling point for many customers in today's increasingly ecologically aware world.

Many corporate managers and architects are hyper-aware of H&S issues and know they must use the safest, legal, bio-degradable products available when choosing softwash products.

And many ecologically aware home owners now choose eco-friendly products simply because of their rightful concern for our environment.

So it's obvious that the smart move for softwash professionals is to capitalise on this wave of interest and concern for our environment by clearly letting their customers know that they only use products from Benz Softwash.

Benz products are legal and government approved, are biodegradable, do not bio-accumulate and are safe when used according to the labelling and guidance on our website.

We hope you found this information helpful and inspires you to succeed in softwashing.

Cheers,
