Soft washing is an alternative choice to pressure/power washing.
Soft washing uses a low pressure water stream which is supplied with specifically designed cleansing agents that are eco-friendly / naturally biodegradable / non-hazardous.
It emulsifies dirt and grime while eliminating the moss, mildew, algae and contaminants that are the root cause of staining on roofing systems and other building surface areas.
Soft washing does all this while using 1/3 the water of pressure washing. And it does not erode the surfaces like pressure washing often can.
Soft washing was created over thirty years ago. It has been thoroughly evaluated and it has been utilized throughout the private and commercial industries within the USA and Europe.
From private residences, to multi-billion dollar companies. Soft Washing has proven 99.9% effective at cleaning, protecting and maintaining properties and assets when properly applied. And when used within a routine maintenance program, extends the lifetime value of property and assets.
Soft washing eliminates the microorganisms (mold, algae, bacteria, etc) that cause staining and decomposition of surfaces. Whereas, pressure washing simply cleans off the surface layer, pushes the microorganisms deeper into the substrate, and allows the microorganisms to remain active. Additionally, soft washing does not make use of potentially damaging high pressure streams of water. Soft Washing treatments are 99.9% effective at killing the microorganisms which allow for much longer periods in between treatments. 6-7 time longer!
Generally, a soft washing treatment will last at least four times as long as pressure washing before staining reoccurs. In most cases with soft washing, only spot treatments may be necessary, rather than a complete redo of the surfaces previously treated.
Microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, lichen, and bacteria) play a critical role in the degradation of roofing materials and exterior surfaces (houses, buildings, walkways, walls, etc.). By not eradicating these microorganisms during routine cleaning. It allows the microorganisms to flourish and continue to repopulate, thus allowing continued degradation of roofing and exterior surfaces. In some cases the microorganisms create unsafe environments. Mold, mildew and algae also pose slipping hazards that can lead to serious injury and potential law suits.
The cleansing solutions used in our SoftWash System are 100% biodegradable as well as have extremely low VOC (volatile organic compounds) discharges. Our cleansing remedies are non-toxic, water based and will not release any type of harmful chemicals into the area surrounding your property.
Soft Washing is even more environmentally friendly than pressure/power washing, for the following reasons:
Roofing and exterior building surfaces along with siding, decks, fencings, concrete and brick surfaces. Soft washing could be made use of on all types of building materials including wood, brick, concrete, aluminum, vinyl siding, roof shingles, and much more!
