Soft Wash

The Importance of a Soft Wash

Soft wash is the process of spraying a high-concentration of cleaning chemicals on surfaces using a lower pressure water jet than traditional power or pressure washing. This water jet is able to dislodge and remove mildew, mold, and other unsightly growths from a surface without causing damage.

The cleaning solutions include safe concentrations of sodium hypochlorite (bleach). Regular soft wash cleaning will keep your home looking beautiful, enhance its curb value and extend its lifespan.

Cleans Dirt and Contaminants

If you’re looking for a safe, effective way to remove surface contaminants from your home such as mildew, mold and dirt, soft washing may be the perfect solution. The process uses a combination of biodegradable cleaning solutions and low-pressure water jets to eliminate unsightly growths and dirt build-up while leaving paint, brick and other surfaces intact.

It also kills harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and algae that can cause a wide range of health issues including asthma. Regular soft wash treatments will prevent these organisms from causing damage and extend your home’s lifespan.

In addition, a well-maintained exterior will enhance your curb appeal, making it more attractive to potential buyers should you ever decide to sell your property. Scheduling regular soft wash appointments is therefore an excellent investment that will pay off in the long run. It will also save you money on costly repairs and replacements.

Kills Mold and Mildew

After several months of rough weather, your home’s exterior surfaces can start looking shabby. Dirt and plant matter collects, and stains, blotches, mold, mildew and algae begin to grow. These are a real eye sore and cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions.

Soft washing uses a special cleaner that kills these organisms at the root so that they can’t return. The cleaning solution contains bleach which is a powerful disinfectant. It also contains surfactants that help to dislodge organic growth from a surface. And it contains neutralizers that prevent runoff from the cleaning solution from harming plants and metal fixtures.

Using a soft wash machine, the cleaning solution is sprayed onto outdoor surfaces at low pressure. The cleaner penetrates deep into the dirt, algae, mold and mildew to remove them. It also kills the microorganisms at a molecular level so that they can’t grow back. Regular soft washing will keep your home’s exterior clean and free of unsightly substances for years to come.

Enhances Curb Appeal

Your home is your biggest investment, and curb appeal is the first impression that you make on visitors. Having your home soft washed regularly enhances its appearance and increases its curb appeal. This is especially important if you plan on selling your home in the future.

Soft washing does not damage surfaces like pressure washing does and can remove the buildups that can cause rust and other types of damage to exterior surfaces. This method is also safer for people and pets than pressure washing and reduces the need for harsh chemicals.

Saves Money

Getting your house and roof regularly soft washed prevents damage to surfaces. This will help you avoid expensive repairs in the future. It will also extend their lifespan and save you money on energy costs.

Soft washing uses biodegradable cleaning detergents and low-pressure water. The detergents loosen and absorb dirt and contaminants, while the low-pressure water jet kills organisms that cause discoloration on surfaces.

The result is a sparkling clean exterior that looks good for longer. It will also make your home more appealing to potential buyers if you decide to sell it in the future. It will also reduce mildew and mold growth, which can be a health hazard for your family. Soft washing also kills bacteria that can trigger respiratory issues and allergies in your household members. This will keep your family healthy and happy. It also helps prepare the surface for painting, which means that your new paint will stick and not chip easily.
