Soft Washing: Everything You Need to Know and More

soft washing

Soft washing is a method of cleaning that has gained popularity in recent years as a more gentle and effective alternative to traditional pressure washing. It’s a process that uses a low pressure spray of cleaning solution to remove dirt, grime, and other stains from a variety of surfaces including roofs, buildings, decks, and more. 

Soft Washing Explained

First, let’s define exactly what soft washing is. As we mentioned, it is a low pressure cleaning method that uses a specialized solution to loosen and remove dirt and stains from surfaces. The solution is typically made up of a blend of biodegradable detergents, enzymes, and other cleaning agents that are safe for the environment and the surfaces being cleaned. The solution is applied to the surface using a low pressure spray, allowing it to penetrate deep into the pores and crevices of the surface to effectively remove dirt and stains.

Why Choose the Soft Washing Method?  

One of the main benefits of soft washing is that it is a much more gentle cleaning method than traditional pressure washing. The low pressure spray means that it doesn’t cause any damage to the surface being cleaned, making it suitable for a wide range of materials including wood, stucco, brick, and more. It’s also safe for plants and landscaping as it doesn’t strip away the natural oils and nutrients that are essential for their health.

In addition to being gentle on surfaces, soft washing is also more effective at removing dirt and stains. The specialized cleaning solution is able to break down and lift away dirt and stains that traditional pressure washing may not be able to remove. This means that surfaces are left looking cleaner and more refreshed for longer periods of time.

Soft washing is one of the most efficient cleaning methods in an exterior environment. The low pressure spray allows for the cleaning solution to cover a larger surface area in less time, meaning that cleaning projects can be completed faster and with less resources. This makes it a cost-effective solution for commercial and residential properties alike.

When Should You Soft Wash? 

So, when should you choose soft washing over traditional pressure washing? Soft washing is the best option for cleaning surfaces that are more delicate or prone to damage from high pressure washing. This includes surfaces such as wood decks, stucco walls, and roofs. Some older homes also need a gentler touch when they need their exterior washed. It is also a good choice for surfaces that are heavily soiled or have difficult to remove stains such as algae, mold, and mildew.
