How does Actiwash work?
Actiwash affects the proteins and cell membrane of microorganisms, consequently causing the release of nitrogen and phosphorus from cells. Where an apply and leave application is used, the processes of natural weathering work to eliminate the dead biofilm.
How long does the self-cleansing process (spray/brush & leave) take?
(1) Green algae stains should disappear within a week. (2) Red algae stains should disappear within 2-3 weeks. (3) well established dark staining can take several months to disappear. Gradual lightening of the surface contamination should be noticeable within the first few weeks and months following treatment. Note: Severe biofilms may require an additional application. However, this is not typically necessary. A brush agitation of the Actiwash solution is advisable on heavily contaminated areas.
Note: (1) Where a brush and rinse application is specified for non-porous surfaces, we recommend a subsequent spray and leave application of Actiwash onto the clean surface when dry for enhanced residual anti-microbial properties. (2) Ensure the surface is free from inorganic dirt (mud, oil, traffic film etc.) before using Actiwash. (3) Water surrounding plants and grass before and after nearby surface treatment. (4) Apply onto a dry surface in temperatures above 7°C. (5) Some white-coloured contamination may persist post-treatment of green/dark organic staining on timber. If desired, gently pressure wash off and re-apply for residual benefits.
