- 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 uses only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not deteriorate or damage the surface like pressure washing frequently can. Soft washing also does so much more than power 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 insect control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals ensure that the microorganisms that create buildup are not just partially swept away, but eradictaed completely.
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 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 get rid of the issue 100%.
Eco-Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are scared of the word "chemicals," however it's actually 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 contaminants and infestations, so they can be quickly rinsed away. They do all the work without all the pressure. Our chemicals are water based, 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.
4 Biggest Reasons to Choose Soft Washing
There are a lot of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for pressure washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened up by decomposition or aging. It might be suitable for some tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't only dirty – it's infected. Regular power washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and doesn't resolve the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Poorly trained or inexperienced power washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a power washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing only uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which consists of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so effective that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than pressure washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
