What is Soft Washing?

We have all heard of pressure washing but have you heard of or know what soft washing is?

Soft washing is a low-pressure method of cleaning exterior surfaces such as roofs, siding, and decks. Unlike pressure washing, which uses high-pressure water to blast away dirt and grime, soft washing involves applying a specialised cleaning solution to the surface and then rinsing it off with low-pressure water.

The cleaning solution used in soft washing typically includes water, a surfactant (to break down dirt and grime), and a biocide (to kill and prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and other harmful organisms). The solution is applied to the surface using a low-pressure sprayer or pump, and then allowed to sit for a period of time to allow the cleaning agents to penetrate and do their job. After the solution has had time to work, the surface is rinsed off with low-pressure water, leaving it clean and free of dirt and grime.

Soft washing is often used to clean delicate surfaces that could be damaged by high-pressure power washing, such as roofs, stucco, and painted surfaces. It is also effective at removing stains, dirt, and mold and preventing regrowth for a longer period of time.
