A customer asked us: "Will your products harm windows and doors when softwashing a house? I'm thinking of the rubber trim, metal handles, etc?"
Benz Bio Cleanze is safe for all known surfaces at our recommended dilution rates.
Benz Lightning Cleanze is categorised as non-corrosive to metals and rubber when used at a dilution of 10:1.
If you use Lightning Cleanze at higher dilution rates – say 5:1 or, exceptionally, 4:1 – then we recommend rinsing metal and rubber immediately prior to application and immediately after.
And use skillful spray techniques to minimise chemical contact with rubber and metal fittings.
We've experienced no problems using this approach, nor have any of our softwash contractor customers reported any problems.
For contractors who are unsure of their ability to direct the spray accurately enough to keep the product away from vulnerable doors and windows, we suggest leaving these until last and completing them by brushing rather than spraying.
We hope this information is helpful,
Ben, Leo & Fiona
PS: After completing the first softwash treatment, put your customer on a "Clean & Maintain" ongoing maintenance programme.
Customers will enjoy a permanently clean property and contractors will enjoy a steady stream of repeat business. A win-win arrangement for both customer and contractor.

We recently tested – just out of curiosity – some old Tornado Cleanze that was nearly two months past it's best-by date. We wanted to find out how long it could be stored for and still produce effective results. And stored badly at that ...

Huge thanks to all our customers for your loyalty in making Benz your softwash product supplier of choice. We appreciate the fact that so many of our trade customers come back to us week after week, month after month, year after year.
And by way of practical appreciation, we've decided to no longer pro-actively seek domestic customers for our products and will not knowingly sell products to the customers of our trade customers, i.e. those who want to play around with d.i.y.

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.
