- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, remove bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized.
Soft washing uses only one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't erode or damage the surface like power washing frequently can. Soft washing also does so much more than pressure washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System do not simply tidy; they penetrate, sterilize, and completely remove the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like pest control – the mix of safe, biodegradable chemicals make sure that the microorganisms that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but removed entirely.

Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals in SoftWash

4 Main Reasons to Soft Wash
There are plenty of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:
- Alternative to power washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened by decomposition 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 contaminated. Regular power washing simply gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and does not solve the root of the problem, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after pressure washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Poorly trained or unskilled power washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to start with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a power washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. On the other hand, soft washing only applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which consists 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 viable for the environment and your wallet.
