- 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 longer than pressure washing, and does not wear down or damage the surface like power washing frequently can. Soft washing also does far more than pressure washing because it does more than simply clean your roof. The products used in the SoftWash System don't just tidy; they penetrate, sterilize, and eliminate the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals make sure that the bacteria that cause buildup are not just partially swept away, but eradicated completely.
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 looking for a way to get rid of what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of bothersome power washing and use a service that can eradicate the problem 100%.
Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people are afraid of the word "chemicals," but it's really not such a dirty word. Everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing aid in the break down of pollutants and infestations, so they can be quickly 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 Choose Soft Washing
There are plenty of reasons to choose soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Alternative to power washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened by decomposition or aging. It might be appropriate for some jobs and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't just dirty – it's infected. Typical power washing merely removes the outer layer of this growth and doesn't fix the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Improperly trained or inexperienced pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to begin with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning method
Power washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Alternatively, soft washing just applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts longer than power washing, making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
