    When you want to enjoy permanently clean drives, patios & paths – and without the mess of jet washing


      No more jet washing your driveway, patio and paths

      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 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.

      The good news – Perma Cleanze is here to help!

      Perma Cleanze solves the re-colonisation problem of jet washing by neutralising the spores through the cleaning method we call “softwashing”.

      This really is 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. PHOTO OF CLEAN DRIVE

      Perma Cleanze is gentler on your property, and more cost-effective, than jet washing – without the mess

      When and where should you use Perma Cleanze?

      1. As soon as you notice the first signs of green, black, red or yellow colouring appearing around your property. Dilute with water at 8:1.

      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. Immediately after pre-cleaning with Benz Tornado Cleanze - Dilute with water at 4-8:1 Adjust the strength according to the quantity and density of any remaining growths.

      3. Immediately after jet washing. Dilute 4:1 with water (or 5:1 if children and animals will walk barefoot on the surface).

      Jet washing by itself cannot remove 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.

      How does Perma Cleanze make your property cleaner through time?

      Because Perma Cleanze soaks deep into porous surfaces, enabling it to keep working for up to 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.

        Long-term protection built-in – surfaces stay cleaner, for longer

        The "Dynamic Duo" – Perma Cleanze plus Benz Tornado Cleanze

        Tornado Cleanze works in partnership with Perma Cleanze.

        Applied as part of the first deep clean, it rapidly removes deeply ingrained algae, lichen, fungi, moss 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, combatting re-colonisation and extending the length of time your property stays clean.

        How to use Perma Cleanze as a stand-alone softwash treatment

        Diluted at 4:1, Perma Cleanze will remove some stains by itself. Simply spray and walk away, leaving it to nature to wash away the remains of the growths that created the unsightly staining of your property.

        Tarmac treatment is one such example. The growths will turn brown in a few days, white in a few weeks, and nature will wash what's left away over time.

        Quick tip: A repeat application after 6 months will ensure all growths have been treated.

        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 continue to clean and protect your property for 2-12 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 – from 6 to 36 months after the initial deep cleaning.

        How to apply Perma Cleanze to your driveway, patio, paths, garden walls, fences, decking, sheds and other outbuildings

        • A rule of thumb: 5 litres of concentrated Perma Cleanze will make enough diluted mix to treat an average driveway and paths around an average 3 bedroom house.

        • Dilute 8 parts water to 1 part Perma Cleanze for maintenance treatments of light green algae.

        • For best results use immediately after diluting.
        • It's best not to treat a surface if rain is likely within 8 hours of application.

        • In extreme heat, it is often a good idea to lightly wet the surface to cool it down before applying Perma Cleanze (to minimise "boil off").

        • Best applied in temperatures above 7 degrees C (results can be inconsistent below this point).

        Important softwashing tips for the most effective use of Perma Cleanze

        To keep areas free from algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould for as long as possible, follow these simple "good property maintenance" guidelines:

          1. Immediately sweep or blow loose organic debris ( lawn & hedge cuttings for example) from paths, patios and drives. If left, these will break down and feed the algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould that cause the green, black, yellow and red staining you want to get rid of.

          2. Avoid placing plant pots on or near the surface (e.g driveway, patio or path) you want to keep clean. Organic matter and spores from these will fall onto the surface and algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould will grow and begin to spread.

            Quick tip: If the above is not possible, then treat the outside and underside of plant pots situated in areas you want to keep clean. And make sure that they are planted such that they do not overflow with rain water, which will tend to spread algae, lichen, fungi, moss and mould spores.

          3. The more frequently you treat your drive, patio and paths with Perma Cleanze the longer each treatment will last. You'll find the protection against re-colonisation lasting longer after subsequent treatments because Perma Cleanze will have less work to do.

          4. Avoid treating a surface if rain is likely within 8 hours of application.

          5. In extreme heat, it's often a good idea to lightly wet the surface to cool it down before applying Perma Cleanze (to minimise "boil off").

          6. Apply in temperatures above 7 degrees C for best results (results can be inconsistent below this point).

          7. Perma Cleanze will work more slowly in winter months than in summer but will still be effective.

          Can I use Perma Cleanze to softwash my walls and roof?

          We developed our standard range of softwash cleaning products with professional softwash cleaning contractors in mind.

          We developed Perma Cleanze primarily for use by competent DIY enthusiasts, for the softwash cleaning of driveways, patios, paths, all types of fences, sheds, garden walls, and so on. It is also excellent for softwashing 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.

          Quick tip: If cleaning your property will require specialist application equipment, or the ability to work safely at heights, we recommend you contact a professional softwash cleaning contractor to do the work for you.

          A softwash cleaning contractor may choose to use Perma Cleanze to softwash your walls and/or roof, or they may use our Bio Cleanze product, which is similar to Perma Cleanze but too powerful to sell to the general public.

            Health & Safety Guidelines

            Follow these guidelines to protect your plant life (lawns, flowers, shrubs, vegetables), children, pets and our environment generally:
            • Follow all handling and application guidelines on the product packaging and on this website.
            • If children and/or animals will walk on the treated surface use at a maximum dilution of 5:1.
            • Always thoroughly pre and post drench all grass and plants with fresh water, which may accidentally come into contact with the product, including any spray that may drift onto them. Pay particular attention to grass edges alongside paths.

              Drenching grass with water prior to softwashing wooden decking with Benz Perma CleanzeDrenching grass with water prior to softwashing paths, drives and patios
            • Do not pour water into undiluted Perma Cleanze. Half-fill your mixing container with water, add the required quantity of Perma Cleanze, then complete filling your mixing container with water.
            • NEVER mix Tornado Cleanze and Perma Cleanze together as toxic gas may be produced.
            • Always thoroughly rinse all application equipment before changing from Tornado Cleanze to Perma Cleanze and vice-versa.
            • Children and animals, must be excluded from areas where spraying, mixing and storage of softwash products is taking place and must continue to be excluded from the working area until it is made safe. If a human or animal comes into contact with a softwash product the area of skin contact should be immediately rinsed with copious quantities of fresh water.

            • Surfaces on which children and animals may walk or play should be treated with Perma Cleanze at a maximum dilution strength of 4:1. Children and animals must be prevented from gaining access to the treated area until the surface is completely dry. All pooling must be brushed away and the area allowed to dry before allowing children and animals onto the treated surface.

            • If working in confined, poorly ventilated areas always wear appropriate respiratory protection.

              Safe working practices: When working with softwash products always keep your equipment and personal protection equipment (PPE) clean. Take care to protect yourself from accidental contact with your eyes and skin. We recommend wearing protective gloves, clothing that covers your whole skin surface, and a full face visor that includes protection for your hair. Wash all PPE with fresh water at the end of the working day and before eating, drinking, or smoking.

              • TEST BEFORE TREATING: Always treat a small, out of the way, test patch on the  surface to be treated before using any chemical cleaning product.

              Always adhere to the SDS (Safety Data Sheet). 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.
