- 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 doesn't wear down or damage the surface like pressure washing frequently can. Soft washing also does a lot more than power washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products used in the SoftWash System don't simply clean; they penetrate, sanitize, and eliminate the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals make sure that the microorganisms that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but removed completely.
Roof Cleaning and More
Soft washing can be performed on a multitude 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 cultivating on the surface of your roof, deck or fence, break the cycle of annoying pressure washing and use a service that can eradicate the problem 100%.
Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are afraid of the word "chemicals," however it's really not such a dirty word. In fact, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized in soft washing aid in the break down of contaminants and infestations, so they can be easily 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.
There are a lot of reasons to pick soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for 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 tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Normal power washing simply removes the outer layer of this growth and doesn't solve the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after pressure washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Improperly trained or unskilled power washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to start with.
- More sustainable cleaning method
Power washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Alternatively, soft washing only uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is made up 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 viable for the environment and your wallet.
