- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, get rid of bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized.
Soft washing uses just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't wear down or harm the surface like power washing often can. Soft washing also does so much more than pressure washing because it does more than simply clean your roof. The products used in the SoftWash System do not just tidy; they penetrate, sterilize, and eradicate the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like insect control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals ensure that the microbes that cause buildup are not just partially swept away, but eliminated totally.

Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are afraid of the word "chemicals," but it's truly not such a dirty word. In fact, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals used in soft washing help break down pollutants and infestations, so they can be easily 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 after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Reasons to Use Soft Washing
There are a lot of reasons to pick soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for power washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened by decay or aging. It may be suitable for some tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't only dirty – it's infected. Regular pressure washing only gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and does not fix the root of the issue, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after power washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Improperly trained or inexperienced pressure washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Power washers use from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a power washer can utilize from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. On the other hand, soft washing only uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing, making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
