SoftWashing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, remove bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized.
SoftWashing consumes just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not deteriorate or harm the surface like power washing frequently can. SoftWashing also does so much more than pressure washing, because it does more than simply clean! The products used in the SoftWash System penetrate, sanitize, and completely remove the root of the issue.
Treating your roof and exterior with SoftWashing is more like bug control – the mix of safe, biodegradable chemicals guarantee that the bacteria that create buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated entirely.
Biodegradable, Eco-Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people hesitate when they hear the word "chemicals," however it's really not such a dirty word. In reality, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized in soft washing help break down contaminants 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 of 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.
