This product worked very well indeed. This was our first experience using Tornado Cleanze. We chose to use it on quoins and coping stones. Both were natural sandstone. Adhesion and quality were paramount on this job – and we were not disappointed.

"I had some very good results with Tornado Cleanze on a rendered wall – and the valuable roses at the base of the wall are still flourishing!" Adrian Brooks, Home Soft Wash
Heavy red and black algae/lichen stains can be a problem to remove using conventional cleaning methods. Even regular soft washing may not remove very deep staining.
Tornado Cleanze is the solution. Tornado Cleanze easily, quickly and safely removes stubborn black, green, red and yellow staining from external hard surfaces.
And its rapid, precisely targeted cleaning action means there's no overspray or spray drift onto surrounding properties and plants.
Tornado Cleanze is a non-penetrating, very strong cleaning gel that stays on the surface. This gives it a long contact time and a remarkable power to remove the discolouration caused by unwanted organic growths.
It is particularly useful for "spot-cleaning" of particularly heavy staining following a biocidal treatment of Benz Lightning Cleanze.
BEFORE TREATMENT WITH TORNADO CLEANZE
AFTER TREATMENT WITH TORNADO CLEANZE
Tornado Cleanze is the perfect partner for Benz Lightning Cleanze biocide. It can be used as a topical spot cleaning agent after giving a biocidal treatment of Lightning Cleanze to sanitise a surface, e.g. for removing any remaining black stains/streaks on render.
Ongoing maintenance: To keep surfaces permanently clean all year around, it's important to post-treat with Benz Bio Cleanze and set up an ongoing "Clean & Maintain" service after thoroughly rinsing off Tornado Cleanze and Lightning Cleanze.
I bought Tornado Cleanze for a contract to clean the exterior walls and pillars of a private residential estate.
Some of the pillars were black from algae colonisation. Because of surrounding grass, hedges and other bushes I thought I'd try Tornado Cleanze rather than risk spray drift or too much run-off.
The results, as you can see in the photo below, were excellent and my customer and other residents were delighted, often stopping to remark on how much better the walls look.
Btw: The railings were removed at the time of cleaning for maintenance and painting, which is why they are missing in the after photo.

Tornado Cleanze comes in sturdy, drop-tested 5 litre containers.
It remains usable for 5+ months after manufacture, when stored in a cool location, in the original, unopened container.
And our tests show that even when opened and some has been used, Tornado Cleanze will be usable for 2+ months, when the cap is tightly replaced and stored in a cool location.
Tornado Cleanze is a concentrated, ready-to-use gel. A little goes a long way. 1 litre will cover 6 metres2 of render or brickwork, 10 metres2 of sandstone, or 10 average capping stones.Back to top
By brush or roller, or a combination of both. Ensure a thin film is left on the surface.
Tornado Cleanze can be diluted and sprayed although this is not its intended use. A better practice is to use Lightning Cleanze if a spray application is required (e.g. for treating large areas of wall render, car parks, driveways, etc).
1) A light jet wash before applying is ideal but not essential. Loose dirt and debris must be removed to allow Tornado Cleanze to do its job on the ingrained stain, but this can also be achieved with a simple hosepipe and broom.
2) A light pre-wetting of the surface to be treated makes application by brush or roller faster and easier. We also suggest lightly pre-wetting a surface after prolonged dry periods and in very hot direct sunlight.
APPLYING TORNADO CLEANZE BY BRUSH
Ideally, apply in temperatures of 8-30 degrees C. Allow longer for Tornado Cleanze to work in cooler temperatures. In very hot weather, cool down surfaces by lightly pre-spraying with cold fresh water.

Black and green discolouration will disappear from most surfaces within 15-60 minutes in mild temperatures, longer in cooler weather. Heavy red stains may turn pink at first, then fade in 24-48 hours. Sometimes, a second application may be needed.
Keep the external hard surfaces of properties permanently clean by using Benz "Clean & Maintain" softwash systems.
After initial cleansing with Lightning Cleanze and Tornado Cleanze, a quick and simple spray with Benz Bio Cleanze every 6-24 months is usually sufficient to keep properties clean all year around.
Quick tip: Depending on the severity of the staining a gentle brushing is sometimes beneficial.

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.
