- 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 deteriorate or harm the surface like pressure washing frequently can. Soft washing also does a lot more than power washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products used in the SoftWash System do not simply tidy; they penetrate, sterilize, and get rid of the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like pest control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals guarantee that the bacteria that create buildup are not just partially swept away, but eradicated entirely.
Roof Cleaning and More
Soft washing can be performed on a wide range of surfaces where algae and bacteria grow. The same bacterium that causes black streaks on roofs can likewise grow on:
- Vinyl Siding
- And more…
If you're trying to find a method to get rid of what's cultivating on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of bothersome pressure washing and use an option that can eradicate the problem 100%.
Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people hesitate when they hear the word "chemicals," but it's actually not such a dirty word. In fact, 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 Choose Soft Washing
There are plenty of reasons to pick 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 by decay or aging. It may be appropriate for some jobs and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing simply gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and doesn't fix the root of the problem, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Improperly trained or unskilled pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
- More sustainable cleaning option
Power 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. On the other hand, soft washing just applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which consists of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so effective that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing. Making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
