You can’t simply pressure wash your home and expect to achieve lasting results. Mold, mildew, fungus, algae and other contaminants that stain building surfaces need to be cleaned and treated at the source to eliminate them once and for all. This is where soft wash comes in, a method of cleaning that uses gentle pressure and biodegradable soaps and solutions to clean your exterior.
It’s a great choice for removing organic-based stains from your roof, siding, concrete and wood. It’s also an effective method for treating and preventing damage to those same surfaces as well. It’s a safe way to get the job done without harming the surface or surrounding plants and landscaping materials.
The soft washing process begins by pre-wetting any vegetation (if present) around the dirty surface with water to avoid damage. Then, the cleaning solution is mixed with water and bleach in an agricultural-style tank sprayer to form a soft wash mixture. The mix is then sprayed on the dirty surface and left to dwell for 10 minutes, after which it is rinsed with fresh water for a clean, beautiful finish.
The cleaning solution used for soft washing contains a combination of chemicals that includes bleach, surfactants and residual inhibitors to treat and prevent microbial growth and staining from building roofs, walls and other surfaces. These cleaners work at the molecular level to kill pathogens like bacteria and fungus, so they are not only removed but cannot return. This is why the soft washing process can last four to six times longer than traditional power washing, giving you a more permanent result. soft wash
