- 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 just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't erode or harm the surface like pressure washing often can. Soft washing also does a lot more than power washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System do not simply tidy; they penetrate, sterilize, and get rid of the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like pest control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals guarantee that the microbes that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but removed totally.
Roof Cleaning and More
Soft washing can be performed on a multitude 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 looking for a method to get rid of what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of annoying pressure washing and use a solution that can remove the issue 100%.
Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are afraid of the word "chemicals," but it's truly 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 rinsed 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 Main Reasons to Soft Wash
There are a lot of reasons to pick soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened by decay or aging. It might be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing simply removes the outer layer of this biomass and does not solve 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 power washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning method
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 applies 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.
