The Top Three Ways SoftWashing Can Extend The Life Of Your Exterior and Roof

Friday, July 15, 2022

As we know, property exteriors often become stained with black and green streaks because of the mold, algae and/or mildew that commonly grows on porous exterior surfaces. These harmful environmental contaminants and bacteria can shorten the lifespan of your exterior and roof if left untreated. Perhaps the most important of the many benefits of SoftWashing is that your property will not only look cleaner for a longer period of time, but the SoftWashing method can actually extend the life of your exterior and roof by eliminating contaminants at their root. Here are the top three ways that SoftWashing can extend the life of your exterior and roof.

1. SoftWashing Products Provide Lasting Results – SoftWashing products use a specialized blend of biodegradable chemicals to kill environmental contaminants such as algae, mold or mildew. These products not only clean away unsightly black and green streaks from your exterior, but they also inhibit bio-growth, which means your exterior will stay cleaner and rid of these organisms longer. What’s more, our SoftWash cleaning method will be used to remove all the black algae and mildew stains and return your siding to its original color.

2. SoftWashing Will Not Void A Manufacturer’s Warranty – The SoftWash cleaning method and products follow manufacturer’s guidelines for exterior and roof cleaning. This means that your property is cleaned safely with no risk of damage, and it will not void any remaining warranty you may have on the asset. SoftWash solution consists of sodium hypochlorite, for the removal of algae, mold and mildew spores and diluted with water with our other cleaning surfactant. The surfactant helps to minimize run off of the solution as well as aides in the cleaning process. This solution is gently applied using less pressure than what comes out of your garden hose. Once SoftWashing is complete, your exterior is returned to its natural color and the solution is left to continue to kill the algae, mold and mildew spores.

3. SoftWashing Is Safe On Virtually Every Exterior And Roof Shingles – The ugly black and green streaks you see on your exterior are not just harmful bacteria and contaminants, the build-up hinders your exterior’s ability to reflect the sun’s ultra-violet rays. In addition, environmental contaminants such Gloeocapsa Magma, mold, mildew and algae holds moisture within the porous siding and roof shingles causing premature aging, rotting and/or granule loss, causing irreversible damage. This means that your exterior and roof will likely need to be replaced sooner. With regular SoftWashing, the contaminants are eliminated and the SoftWash solution is left to continue to kill the algae, mold and mildew spores.
