- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, remove bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sanitized.
Soft washing uses only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't wear down or damage the surface like pressure washing frequently can. Soft washing also does far more than power washing because it does more than simply clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System do not just clean; they penetrate, sanitize, and completely remove the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals ensure that the microorganisms that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated entirely.
Roof Cleaning and Beyond
Soft washing can be carried out on a multitude of surfaces where algae and bacteria grow. The same bacterium that causes black streaks on roofs can also grow on:
- Vinyl Siding
- And more…
If you're looking for a way to get rid of what's cultivating on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of irritating power washing and use an option that can get rid of the problem 100%.
Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are afraid of the word "chemicals," however it's truly not such a dirty word. In truth, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing help break down contaminants and infestations, so they can be easily washed away. They do all the work without all the pressure. Our chemicals are water based, ship non-hazardous, and are biodegradable, meaning they break down into carbon and water within twenty (20) days after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Biggest Reasons to Soft Wash
There are a lot of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened by decomposition or aging. It may be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Typical pressure washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and doesn't solve the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Improperly trained or inexperienced pressure washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, especially if it's older to start with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Pressure washers use from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a power washer can utilize from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Alternatively, soft washing only uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which consists of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
