HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES
* Do not pour water into undiluted biocide. Always half-fill your tank with water, add the required quantity of biocide, then complete filling your tank with water.
* NEVER mix Lightning Cleanze/Tornado Cleanze with Bio Cleanze/Perma Cleanze because toxic chlorine gas may be produced.
* ALWAYS thoroughly rinse application equipment and tanks before changing from Lightning Cleanze/Tornado Cleanze to Bio Cleanze, and vice-versa.
* The public, customers, children and animals should be excluded by barriers and tape from areas where spraying, mixing and storage of chemicals is taking place.
*Children and animals must be excluded from the treated area until the chemical treatment is COMPLETELY dry (in the case of Bio Cleanze/Perma Cleanze) and FULLY rinsed and declared safe in the case of Lightning Cleanze/Tornado Cleanze.
* Barriers and human safety "spotters" must be positioned either side of the working area to ensure the general public, customers, children and animals do not gain access.
* Apply Bio Cleanze at a maximum dilution of 50:1 – and Perma Cleanze at 4:1 – on horizontal surfaces that children and animals may walk or play on.
* Brush away all "pooling" to allow the surface to dry completely.
* Use respiratory protection in confined or poorly ventilated areas: Appropriate breathing apparatus, as designated in the relevant product SDS, must be worn if biocides are used in a confined or poorly ventilated area.
The purchaser and/or end users are solely responsible for ensuring that these products are used in line with industry Approved Codes of Practice. All operators must be trained in using and applying any Ministry Approved professional product. Always read the label and product information before use. Please be aware that by proceeding you are purchasing a professional biocide product. You must ensure the end user of these products complies with the PRCD/HSE Code for the safe use of biocides. By law, everyone who uses biocides professionally must have received adequate training in using biocides safely and be skilled in the work they are carrying out.
When working with chemicals always keep equipment and personal protection equipment (PPE) clean. Take care to protect yourself from accidental contact with your eyes and skin.
We recommend wearing chemical resistant protective gloves, chemical resistant clothing that covers your whole skin surface, and a full face visor that includes protection for your hair. Wash all PPE with fresh water before breaks, smoking, eating and at the end of the working day.
Test areas: With their prior permission always treat a test patch on a customer's property before using any chemical cleaning product and obtain your customer's agreement that the effect of the applied chemical is acceptable before cleaning the entire property.
During use and application always adhere to the SDS and follow the product labelling instructions and the product information supplied on this website to ensure protection of our environment and avoidance of injury to humans and animals.
Training: Study the written and video how-to guides published on the Benz Softwash Ltd website before using and applying any product you purchase from us. We are happy to clarify any questions arising about the use and application of our products – contact us by email via the Contact Page of this website.
By reading these Terms & Conditions of Service and continuing with your purchase of Benz biocides you confirm that you have received appropriate and adequate training in the handling and use of biocides and other chemical products you may buy from Benz Softwash Ltd.
In general our products are sold on a "Non-returnable, Non-Refundable" basis. This applies absolutely to all chemical products.
However, in certain circumstances, and entirely at our discretion, we may offer a "goodwill" refund of the price paid – minus all our shipping and handling costs – on certain non-chemical, non-book products. Postage for returning products is the responsibility of the customer. This policy lasts for a maximum of 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since a purchase we cannot offer a refund or exchange.
To be eligible for a return, an item must be UNUSED and in the SAME CONDITION in which a customer received it. It must also be in the ORIGINAL PACKAGING and be suitable for RE-SALE.
Several types of goods are exempt from being returned:
Perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned. We also do not accept products for return that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, BIOCIDES, CLEANING CHEMICALS, AND CLEANING PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND, or flammable liquids or gases.
Additional non-returnable items:
* Gift cards
* Downloadable software and digital products
* Some health and personal care items
* BENZ SOFTWASH EQUIPMENT that has been damaged, used or tested in any way
* Books in any condition
* CD, DVD, VHS tape, software, video game, cassette tape, or vinyl record that has been opened
* Any item not in its original condition, is damaged, or missing parts for reasons not due to our error, and is thus not suitable for resale
* Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery
To complete your return, we require that you send us your receipt or proof of purchase.
Do not send a purchased product back to the original manufacturer.
Refunds (if applicable):
Once a return is received and inspected, we will send an email notification that we have received the returned item. We will also send email notification of the approval or rejection of a refund.
If a refund is approved, then it will be processed and a credit automatically applied to the credit card or original method of payment as soon as possible.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable):
If a refund notification has not been received, first check the relevant bank account again.
Then contact the relevant credit card company as it may take some time before a refund is officially posted.
