Soft washing is a technique that treats the infection of the stain and lets the cleaning solutions sanitize, doing 100% of the work, killing all mildew, algae, and lichens at the root, not just the surface. This creates a longer-lasting clean with no damaging pressure or harsh chemicals. Soft washing only uses 1/3 the water than pressure washing and is better for your home, family, and the environment.
Soft Washing is a lot more ecologically friendly compared to pressure/power washing, for the following reasons:
Pressure washing only relies on water and pressure to do the cleaning. This high pressure (1,500+ PSI) just blasts the surface and bacteria further in, leaving the root of the bacteria behind and possibly creating more damage to the surface. Soft washing uses low pressure (80 PSI) and relies on 100% biodegradable cleaning solutions to kill all bacteria at the root, without damage, resulting in a longer-lasting clean for your property
When pressure washing leaves behind the filament root system of the bacteria, the bacteria will grow back faster. This can cause higher utility bills, unsightly curb appeal, increased allergies, shorter lifespan of the surface, insurance companies can even drop coverage. So it is important for your investment that all bacteria is completely removed, and soft washing can help achieve that exterior cleaning goal!
