The four techniques of soft washing (video)

Because the soft washing industry is still in it's infancy, explaining to customers what soft washing is – and why they should pay you to do it – can be challenging.

In years to come soft washing will become a well-known and accepted method of cleaning exterior hard surfaces.

Right now though we're in a similar situation to where the double-glazing world was 40 years ago. Back in the day double glazing was viewed as a luxury and householders doubted its value.

At first it was common for only one house in a street to have double-glazing installed. Those people were the "early adopters". But gradually the word spread as neighbour after neighbour realised what a good thing it was.

Today we ask ourselves not "should I have double-glazing installed?" but rather "which double-glazing shall I put in from which company?".

We believe that the soft washing industry will experience a similar public acceptance over the coming years.

Obviously, the question arises: "How can we get the soft washing message across to our customers today?"

One answer is to use this soft washing video to explain the simple principles of soft washing

Showing your customers this two-minute soft washing video – using your phone, tablet, or laptop – will quickly help them realise what you and your soft washing service can do for them.

A couple of minutes watching this video can be more effective than hours of talking and trying to convince a customer to buy your soft washing service.

Once your prospective customers understand what you are offering them – through the step-by-step explanation in this soft washing video – the rest of the sales process will be mostly just clarifying the details and taking the order.


 (Note: The product names in the video have changed: Bio Cleanze is the new name for Biocidal Wash, and Lightning Cleanze the new name for Blackwash)


We hope this information is helpful and sincerely wish you great success in your soft washing business,

Benz Team

Hi Mark and thanks for your question,

We’ve never had cause to use Benz Oxy Cleanze on that kind of surface. If you would like to send us photos of the window frames (to ) we can better advise.

In the meantime your options are twofold: 1) as usual with any surface you are unsure of, treat, with your customer’s permission, a small test area 2) contact the manufacturers of the window frames and ask for their advice.
