- 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 sanitized.
Soft washing uses only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't deteriorate or harm 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 utilized in the SoftWash System don't just tidy; they penetrate, sanitize, and eradicate the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like pest control – the mix of safe, biodegradable chemicals guarantee that the microbes that create buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated entirely.
Roof Cleaning and Beyond
Soft washing can be performed on a plethora of surfaces where algae and bacteria grow. The same bacterium that causes black streaks on roofs can also grow on:
- Vinyl Siding
- And more…
If you're looking for a method to get rid of what's growing on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of bothersome pressure washing and use a service that can get rid of the issue 100%.
Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people hesitate when they hear the word "chemicals," however it's really not such a dirty word. Everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing help break down 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 after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
There are plenty of reasons to choose soft washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for power washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened up by decay or aging. It might be appropriate for some tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and does not solve the root of the problem, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after power washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or inexperienced pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, especially if it's older to start with.
- More sustainable cleaning method
Pressure washers use from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can utilize from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, 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 sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
