- 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 doesn't wear down or damage the surface like power washing often can. Soft washing also does a lot 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 eradicate the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, biodegradable chemicals guarantee that the bacteria that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated 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 creates black streaks on roofs can likewise grow on:
- Vinyl Siding
- And more…
If you're searching for a method to get rid of what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of irritating power washing and use an option that can eliminate the issue 100%.
Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people are scared of the word "chemicals," however it's really not such a dirty word. In fact, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized 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 of their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Biggest 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 power washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened by decomposition or aging. It may be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Typical pressure washing only removes the outer layer of this growth and does not solve the root of the problem, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after pressure washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or unskilled power washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to start with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Power washers use from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing 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 consists 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 viable for the environment and your wallet.
