The Mild Pressure Washing That Packs a Powerful Punch
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 or electric pump system, a biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solution is applied to the surface that emulsifies dirt, kills mold, mildew, bacteria, algae and many other organic stains. As we have become environmentally conscious, the new soft washing systems utilize more advanced biodegradable cleaning solutions have revolutionized exterior cleaning as we know it.
What Is Soft Washing?
So what is soft washing really? 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 4 to 6 times longer than a regular pressure cleaning. Less water used, environmentally friendly and allows for safer working conditions for our technicians!
Benefits of Soft Washing
Allowing 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. Less pressure, less water, no surface erosion and cleans and sanitizes 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.
