What is soft washing?

Soft washing is a safe and effective method for cleaning the exterior of homes and roofs. It involves using a low-pressure system and specially formulated chemicals to remove dirt, grime, mold, mildew, and other stains without damaging the surfaces being cleaned.


The soft washing process typically involves three main steps: pre-treating, applying the cleaning solution, and rinsing. Before applying the cleaning solution, it's important to pre-treat the surface to be cleaned by removing any loose debris and protecting nearby plants and surfaces from overspray.


Once the surface is prepped, the cleaning solution is applied with a specialized soft washing gun, which allows for precise control of the chemical mix and application rate. The solution is left to dwell for a specific amount of
time to allow it to penetrate and dissolve the stains. Finally, the surface is thoroughly rinsed with water to remove the cleaning solution and any remaining dirt or debris.

What are the benefits of soft washing my house and roof?

One of the main benefits of soft washing is that it's much gentler on surfaces than traditional pressure washing. Using high-pressure water can damage delicate surfaces like shingles, siding, and stucco, while also driving water and debris under siding and into areas where it can cause damage. Soft washing uses low-pressure water combined with specially formulated cleaning solutions that are designed to dissolve stains without the need for high pressure.


Soft washing is also effective at removing and preventing the growth of mold, mildew, and other types of fungi. These organisms thrive in humid and moist environments, and can cause serious health problems for people who are exposed to them. By regularly soft washing the exterior of a home, homeowners can help to prevent the growth of these harmful organisms and keep their families safe and healthy.


Another benefit of soft washing is that it can help to extend the life of a home's exterior surfaces. Over time, dirt, grime, and other types of stains can cause surfaces to degrade, which can lead to costly repairs or replacement. Soft washing removes these stains and helps to restore the appearance and integrity of exterior surfaces, which can help to extend their lifespan. Soft washing is also environmentally friendly. Unlike pressure washing, which can cause damage to plants and wildlife, soft washing uses biodegradable and eco-friendly cleaning solutions that won't harm the environment. Additionally, because soft washing uses less water than traditional pressure washing, it's a more sustainable and water-efficient option for cleaning the exterior of homes and roofs.
