- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, get rid of bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sanitized.
Soft washing consumes just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not deteriorate or harm the surface like pressure washing often can. Soft washing also does far more than power washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products utilized in the SoftWash System don't simply clean; they penetrate, sterilize, and eliminate the root of the problem.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like bug control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals make sure that the microorganisms that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated entirely.

Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, individuals are scared of the word "chemicals," but it's actually not such a dirty word. Everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized in soft washing help break down pollutants and infestations, so they can be quickly washed away. They do all the work without all the pressure. Our chemicals are water based, ship non-hazardous, and are biodegradable, meaning they break down into carbon and water within twenty (20) days after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Reasons to Use Soft Washing
There are plenty of reasons to choose soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened up by decomposition or aging. It may be appropriate for some jobs and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your house isn't only dirty – it's contaminated. Typical pressure washing only gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and doesn't resolve the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after power washing is completed.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or inexperienced power washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to start with.
- More sustainable cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing a power washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing only applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing, making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
