EXTERNAL SURFACE CLEANING

Due to human and environmental factors, outdoor surfaces frequently need cleaning to remove dirt, greases, tannins and mould. Most of the outdoor cleaning products available today use to clean outdoor areas are chlorine or bleach based. These chemicals cause damage in the form of corrosion to metals including bolts, nails and steel re-enforcements, greatly shortening the life of balconies, decks and other outdoor areas.

CORROSION TESTING

The majority of surface cleaners and mould removers on the market are typically chlorine or bleach based. Cleaners with this chemical base shorten the life of the surface fixtures.

The degradation on the nail & screw treated with a typical bleach based cleaner is severe, illustrating the damage caused by using the wrong product in application. In contrast the SoSafe treated nail & screw appear cleaner with no visual degradation.
