What Is Soft Washing?

Soft washing is a method used to clean the roof and exterior of homes and businesses to safely remove dirt, mold and mildew, algae, and other bacteria. Unlike pressure washing, soft washing applies less pressure with a water-based, biodegradable cleaning solution that disinfects and kills outside bacteria. This is a preferable method when cleaning asphalt roofs. Soft washing can prevent major shingle damage to the roof of a building.

Soft Washing VS Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing is a strong and forceful way to remove dirt and other bacteria from the exterior of buildings, however, it’s powerful nature can also cause a lot of damage. Not only does the blast of the pressure washer chip away at paint and damage roofs, but it also blasts the surface level bacteria, fungi, and algae – either spreading it further across the home or embedding it deeper into the exterior.

Soft washing is a non-forceful, detergent-based method to kill the contaminants for good. The detergent used is biodegradable and perfectly safe for the home and the environment.

What Can Soft Washing Be Used On?

Soft Washing works so well and is so non-invasive that it can be used on many different types of surfaces:

  • Exterior Of Houses, Including Stucco and Siding
  • Different Types Of Roofing
  • Outside Decks and Patios
  • Fences And Concrete

It is also great for cleaning outside play houses, playground equipment, removing rust and stains, gutters, and sanitizing.
