The Advantages of Soft Washing

As property owners, it is important to maintain the cleanliness and aesthetic appeal of our homes and buildings because these affect our overall property value. It is critical to clean and maintain exterior surfaces on a regular basis to ensure that they remain in good condition and do not deteriorate over time. While pressure washing has been a popular method for cleaning outdoor surfaces, it may not always be the best option.


At Roof Savers LLC, we offer an alternative solution called soft washing. In this article, we will define soft washing, explain how it works, and why it is superior to traditional pressure washing. We will also provide some tips on when to use soft washing and why you should choose Roof Savers LLC for your soft washing needs.


What is Soft Washing?


Soft washing is a gentle and effective cleaning method that removes dirt, grime, and other stains from exterior surfaces with a low-pressure spray and a specialized cleaning solution. Unlike regular pressure washing, which uses high-pressure water to blast away dirt and debris, soft washing relies on the cleaning solution to break down and remove the stains.


The cleaning solution used in soft washing is a mix of biodegradable chemicals and detergents that are designed to kill mold, mildew, algae, and other microorganisms that may be growing on your exterior surfaces. The solution is applied to the surface using a low-pressure pump and spray nozzle, which allows it to seep into the pores of the surface and break down the stains at the source.


How Does Soft Washing Work?


Soft washing works by breaking down the organisms on a molecular level, which allows them to be easily rinsed away. The cleaning solution used in soft washing is specially formulated to kill the microorganisms that cause stains, moss, algae, and molds without damaging the surface being cleaned.


The low-pressure spray used in soft washing is also a key component of the process. Unlike regular pressure washing, which can damage delicate surfaces like stucco or painted wood, soft washing is gentle and non-abrasive. The low-pressure spray and surfactant in the mix, allows the cleaning solution to penetrate and cling to the surface without damaging it, while still providing a thorough and effective clean.


Why is Soft Washing Better than Regular Pressure Washing?


While regular pressure washing can be effective for cleaning some surfaces, it is not always the best option. Here are some reasons why soft washing is a superior method:


Effective Cleaning: Soft washing is a more effective method of cleaning than regular pressure washing because the specialized equipment allows for higher concentration of roof or house mixture to be applied. Even most commercial pressure washers max out at a 1.2% concentration of solution compared to the 4%-6% that is commonly used when soft washing. the higher concentration is especially necessary when treating and cleaning roofs. The cleaning solution used in soft washing is designed to kill mold, mildew, and other microorganisms that cause stains, which means that the stains are removed at the source, rather than just being blasted away.


Gentle on Surfaces: Soft washing is gentle on surfaces, which means it is less likely to damage them than regular pressure washing. Soft washing uses a low-pressure spray that is designed to penetrate the surface without damaging it, which is especially important for delicate surfaces such as stucco or painted wood.


Longer Lasting Results: Soft washing provides longer lasting results than regular pressure washing. The cleaning solution used in soft washing kills the microorganisms that cause stains, which means that the stains are less likely to return in the future.


When to Use Soft Washing?


Soft washing is ideal for cleaning delicate surfaces like stucco, painted wood, and roofs. It is also a great option for cleaning surfaces that are prone to mold, mildew, or other microorganisms, like decks, patios, and outdoor furniture.
