- 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 consumes just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not wear down or harm the surface like power washing often can. Soft washing also does far more than pressure washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System don't simply clean; they penetrate, sterilize, and completely remove the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals make sure that the microorganisms that create buildup are not just partly swept away, but removed completely.
Roof Cleaning and Beyond
Soft washing can be carried out on a wide range 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 searching for a method eliminate what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of annoying power washing and use an option that can get rid of the issue 100%.
Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals hesitate when they hear the word "chemicals," however it's actually not such a dirty word. Everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing help break down pollutants 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 of their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Main Reasons to Soft Wash
There are plenty of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Alternative to pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened up by decay or aging. It may be appropriate for some tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your property isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing simply gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and doesn't solve the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after pressure washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or inexperienced power washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to begin with.
- More sustainable cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing a power washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Alternatively, soft washing just uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is made up 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 sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
