In the video below Ben demonstrates the temporary effect of soft washing with Benz Bio Cleanze that can occur on some surfaces – especially concrete and wall render – when applied in hot weather.
Black algae contains a dye that protects it from the sun’s UV (ultra-violet) rays. This often leaches out when soft washing in very hot temperatures.
To a new softwash contractor or home owner this can be disconcerting. But this is quite normal and shows that the product is working really well.
The primary task of Bio Cleanze is that of killing the growths that give rise to the unsightly “dirty” appearance of external hard surfaces.
Bio Cleanze will do an excellent job of killing the growths through a range of ambient temperatures from 8-30 degrees C. But it’s worth noting that the secondary effect of “natural self-cleansing’ happens faster when a softwash treatment is given in warmer temperatures.

Slippery decking can be dangerous as well as unsightly. Covered with biological growths such as algae, people can slip and break bones. And of course it is simply unpleasant to sit out on a filthy, mouldy, rotting decking that was erected to be a joy.
Softwashing wooden decking and other timber buildings and fences can be a huge market for softwashing contractor who knows what they are doing.

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 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.
