A customer asked us: "Will your softwash 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 skilful spray techniques to minimise chemical contact with rubber and metal fittings.
We've experienced no problems using this approach, nor have any of our 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 and sincerely wish you great success in your soft washing business.
Ben, Leo, Fiona, Stevie & Anthony
PS: After completing the first softwash treatment, put your customer on a "Clean & Maintain" ongoing maintenance programme.
Your customers will enjoy a permanently clean property and you will enjoy a steady stream of repeat business. A win-win arrangement for everyone.

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.
