How can you evaluate Benz biocides compared with "cleaning" products?


We're frequently asked for our opinions about softwash products from other companies and the claims made for them. These are reasonable questions, as somehow we all have to decide which products and companies will serve us best.

As a company policy we do not comment on the integrity of claims made by other companies for their products. We believe that doing so would be poor business practice.

However, we can suggest some lines of technical inquiry you may want to pursue:

To the best of our knowledge, Benz LIghtning Cleanze is the only fully government approved sodium hypochlorite based biocide on the market. And therefore it is the only legal way to use sodium hypochlorite for soft washing external hard surfaces.

  • Is the other product described as a biocide, or only as a "cleaner"? Only a fully government compliant product can legally be called a biocide. Products that are described as "cleaners" have not been approved as being compliant with the legislation and cannot legally be called biocides.

Benz Softwash offer two complementary biocides: Bio Cleanze and Lightning Cleanze, which work together synergistically (click here to learn how to set up your "Clean & Maintain" softwash system)

  • Who will be your customer? Although householders may not ask to see product approvals, managers and others who work in organisations, and who are responsible for issuing cleaning contracts, know they must do everything they can to comply with the law.

Therefore a contractor who uses Benz fully compliant products, which are increasingly specified by architects and other professionals, has a powerful sales advantage when tendering for large contracts.

  • Finally, compare the pricing and coverage of both products. We offer Lightning Cleanze and Bio Cleanze at the lowest possible price, as we only supply to professional cleaning companies and know that cost savings are a serious factor in the successful running of a business.
