Soft Washing: The Service That Revolutionized the Exterior Cleaning Industry

Developed as an alternative to pressure washing, soft washing is an environmentally responsible cleaning alternative to general pressure cleaning or pressure washing. Using an agricultural pump sprayer, a biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solution is applied to the surface that emulsifies dirt, kills mold, mildew, bacteria, algae, and many other organic stains. Over two decades ago, bleach and water were combined with other cleaning agents to form the first soft washing solution. Now, as we have become more environmentally conscious, the new and improved soft washing system with more advanced biodegradable cleaning solutions has come full circle and has revolutionized exterior cleaning as we know it.

Benefits of Soft Washing

soft washing in DC, MD, VAAllowing more carefully metered solutions to be applied to exterior surfaces, soft washing benefits outweigh the old-style cleaning by relying on new environmentally-friendly solutions to do the hard work, without having to rely on pressure. With soft washing, you can expect:

  • Less pressure
  • Less water
  • No surface erosion
  • Sanitation of the surface

Because of this, over the last two decades, soft washing has become one of the most important changes to the exterior cleaning industry.

What Is Soft Washing?

Initially, soft washing was created as a cleaning technique for removing algae stains from roofs. When roof shingle companies said that pressure cleaning or pressure washing would void all warranties on roofs, an alternative plan had to be created. Thus, soft washing was born.

The cleaning solution was applied to the surface to seep into the pores, nooks and crannies. Then, after a brief waiting period to let the chemicals take effect, a light rinse, and the result was a clean and sanitized surface that stays clean longer and uses less water and no pressure! A pressure washing machine is often not even necessary as the chemicals do all the hard work. Because the chemicals seep deep into the surface, the soft washing lasts four to six times longer than regular pressure cleaning. With soft washing, you can expect less visits by cleaning companies and less water used, all while being environmentally-friendly and responsible.
