Soft Washing: 6 Free & Important Things You Need to Know Before Getting Started

WHAT IS SOFT WASHING AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS COMPARED TO OTHER METHODS OF CLEANING EXTERIOR SURFACES LIKE ROOFS AND WALLS?

Soft washing is a low-pressure cleaning method that uses a gentle stream of water to clean exterior surfaces like roofs, walls, and sidewalks. This method is safer and more effective than power washing, which can damage delicate surfaces. In addition, soft washing is more effective at removing dirt, mold, and mildew. As a result, it is the preferred method for cleaning exteriors. It is the only recommended cleaning process by the Asphalt Roofing Manufactures Association (ARMA) for cleaning asphalt roofs.  Soft washing also uses less water than power washing, making it more environmentally friendly. As you can see, soft washing is a safe, effective, and environmentally friendly way to clean exterior surfaces.

The bleach breaks down the organic matter on the surface, while the surfactant helps to loosen dirt and grime.

It is also safe for use around vegetation and pets when proper property protection has been completed.

One potential risk associated with soft washing your property is an unknowledgeable company. These companies may not have the proper equipment or solutions to clean your property correctly. In addition, they may not know how to properly operate the equipment, which could damage your property. Another potential risk is improperly installed exterior electrical outlets. If the outlets are not installed correctly, they could become a shock hazard for the person operating the equipment. Finally, if something does go wrong during or after the cleaning process has been completed, it is important to contact the company immediately so that they can take corrective action.

A yearly soft washing of your property is recommended in order to maintain its appearance and protect it from dirt, algae, moss, and other types of staining agents over time. This yearly cleaning will remove any build-up of these materials on your property and will help to keep your property looking its best. However, if you live in an area with a lot of trees or other vegetation, you may need to have your property soft washed more often in order to prevent the build-up of these materials. In general, it is best to have your property soft washed every two years in order to maintain its appearance and keep it looking its best.
