- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, get rid of bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized.
Soft washing consumes only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not deteriorate or damage the surface like power washing frequently can. Soft washing also does so much more than pressure washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System do not simply clean; they penetrate, sanitize, and get rid of the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, biodegradable chemicals ensure that the bacteria that create buildup are not just partially swept away, but removed totally.
Roof Cleaning and More
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 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 irritating pressure washing and use an option that can eliminate the problem 100%.
Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people hesitate when they hear the word "chemicals," but it's actually not such a dirty word. In reality, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing aid in the break down of 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 Reasons to Use Soft Washing
There are plenty of reasons to pick 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 up by decomposition or aging. It may be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your property isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Typical power washing simply removes the outer layer of this growth and doesn't resolve the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or inexperienced power washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to begin 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. Conversely, soft washing just uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised 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 viable for the environment and your wallet.
