Watch the short (1.35 min) video above to see the dramatic results of softwashing with Benz Perma Cleanze
Have you noticed how your drive, patio and paths become dirty again – and shockingly fast – after they've been jet washed? And did you feel that jet washing was a waste of your time, energy and money?

The “dirt” you see on exterior surfaces is actually not dirt at all but a cocktail of algae, lichen, fungi, moss or mould. And jet washing cannot remove the spores of these growths, which rapidly recolonise.
This is the reason you'll notice your property becoming "dirty" again soon after it's been jet washed.

And if that was not bad enough, repeated jet washing will damage the protective surface layer of concrete and brick.
Without that protective layer, the rate of deterioration caused by natural weathering will increase, reducing the life expectancy of the concrete and brick on your property.Back to top
Perma Cleanze solves the re-colonisation problem of jet washing by neutralising the spores through the cleaning method we call “soft washing”.
This is really good news for you ... because for the most part the need to jet wash your drive, patio, paths (as well as garden walls, wood decking and wood sheds) will soon be consigned to history.
All you need to do is first deep clean your patio and paths with Benz Tornado Cleanze; then simply maintain it with a quick spray of Perma Cleanze every 6-12 months.

By applying Perma Cleanze only once or twice a year, you can stop these growths from re-colonising on your paths, patio, walls, driveway, fences, sheds and decking.
This means they will remain permanently clean – and without the mess jet washing inevitably creates.

1. As soon as you notice the first signs of green, black, red or yellow colouring appearing around your property. Dilute with water at 4:1.
A quick spray every 6-12 months (depending on the type of surface and the local environment) will keep your patio, paths, driveway (tarmac, concrete and block), brick and concrete outbuildings – as well as wooden fences, sheds and decking – permanently clean.
2. After pre-cleaning with Benz Tornado Cleanze.

3. Immediately after jet washing.
Jet washing by itself cannot kill the spores that cause your property to look "dirty".
So use Perma Cleanze to neutralise the spores after jet washing. Then sit back and enjoy watching your property become even cleaner through time.
Because Perma Cleanze soaks deep into porous surfaces, enabling it to keep working for up to, and sometimes, over a year – ensuring your property stays permanently clean.
Any spores that drift onto your property will find it difficult to grow because of the residual protection against re-colonisation that Perma Cleanze offers.
4. Historic buildings. Perma Cleanze is a powerful, yet non-aggressive, way to care for the surfaces of our historic properties. It contains no acids, solvents or compounds that could adversely affect the materials or coatings used in these valuable old buildings.

Tornado Cleanze works in partnership with Perma Cleanze.
Applied as part of the first deep clean, it rapidly removes deeply ingrained algae, lichen, fungi and mould.
It has immense tornado-like power to remove the toughest – “impossible to remove by other means” – growths and stains from your driveway, patio, paths and outbuildings (e.g. your garage, sheds, fencing and decking).
After rinsing away the residue of Tornado Cleanze, apply Perma Cleanze – which will soak deep into porous surfaces, sanitising them even more thoroughly.
Perma Cleanze will continue to deep clean through time, combating re-colonisation and extending the length of time your property stays clean.

Diluted with water at 4:1, Perma Cleanze will remove some stains by itself. Simply spray, brush-in if needed, and walk away (do not rinse).
Then leave it to nature to remove, via the natural weathering of sun and rain, the remains of the growths that created the unsightly staining of your property.
1) On very heavily infested surfaces it may sometime be indicated to increase the dilution up to 2:1.
2) A repeat application after 6 months will ensure all growths have been treated and the spores killed. Thereafter a once or twice yearly treatment will be sufficient to keep your property permanently clean.
3) On muddy or otherwise dirty surfaces (eg paths, patios and drives) hose and brush to remove loose material. Then brush Perma Cleanze in to take advantage of it's surfactant qualities.
On surfaces like wall render, painted surfaces and so on, the cleaning effect will start to be seen after a few days. A second treatment can be applied after two weeks to speed up the cleaning process.
Just spray, walk away, and let nature wash away!
Perma Cleanze will usually continue to clean and protect your property for 6-12 months depending on the nature of the material treated (e.g. concrete, brick, tarmac, wood), local weather conditions, and so on.
Quick tip: Apply ongoing maintenance treatments when needed at the first signs of re-colonisation – from 6 to 12 months following the initial deep cleaning.
1) Surfaces vary in porosity – including concrete slabbed paths and patios, brickwork, block drives, wooden sheds and fences – and therefore the cleaning effect of a Perma Cleanze softwash treatment may also vary.
This can be especially true for concrete paths and patios that have had their surface layer damaged by high pressure jet washing.
2) On areas of heavy algae growth, particularly on very porous surfaces:
a) A second treatment after two weeks may be needed
b) Using a soft brush to work Perma Cleanze into the algae will speed up the cleaning process and make the treatment more effective
To keep areas free from algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould for as long as possible, follow these simple "good property maintenance" guidelines:

We developed our standard range of softwash cleaning products with professional softwash cleaning contractors in mind. Walls and roofs are best tackled by professionals who have the necessary equipment to work at heights.
We developed Perma Cleanze primarily for the cleaning of external hard surfaces by the staff of property maintenance companies and the in-house cleaning staff responsible for cleaning the perimeter areas around factories, warehouses and offices.
Perma Cleanze is formulated to be legal and safe for cleaning driveways, car parks, patios, footpaths, all types of fences, sheds, low outside walls, and so on. It is also excellent for soft washing wood, including wooden decking, wooden fences and wooden sheds.
For these purposes, Perma Cleanze can be applied using simple equipment like a bucket, brush, and/or garden sprayer (fitted with Viton seals).

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.
