- 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 sterilized.
Soft washing uses only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not wear down or damage 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 don't simply clean; they penetrate, sanitize, and eliminate the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like pest control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals make sure that the microorganisms that create buildup are not just partially swept away, but eradictaed totally.
Roof Cleaning and Beyond
Soft washing can be performed on a plethora of surfaces where algae and bacteria grow. The same bacterium that creates black streaks on roofs can also grow on:
- Vinyl Siding
- And more…
If you're trying to find a way eliminate what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of bothersome pressure washing and use an option that can remove the issue 100%.
Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people are afraid of the word "chemicals," but it's actually not such a dirty word. Everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized in soft washing aid in the break down of pollutants 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 Biggest Reasons to Soft Wash
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 may have been loosened up by decay or aging. It might be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Normal pressure washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and doesn't solve the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after pressure washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or unskilled pressure washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to start with.
- More sustainable cleaning method
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a power washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. On the other hand, soft washing just 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 pressure washing. Making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
