Soft Washing Your Exterior

Homeowners eager to get rid of ugly stains on their siding, deck, or other exterior surfaces often worry about damage from pressure washing. They are often reluctant to utilize pressure washing because they associate it with damage to siding, paint, windows, and landscaping.

 

What is soft washing?

Soft washing, also known as low pressure washing, is a safe and effective process used by professional pressure washing companies for cleaning a variety of exterior surfaces on buildings and homes. In the soft washing process, a combination of cleaning solutions is gently applied to the surface with low pressure and given ample time to destroy any algae or fungus build-up. These solutions, along with dirt, stains, and other grime (e.g., mold, algae, pollen, and moss), are then gently and completely rinsed off with clean, low-pressure water.

 

Soft washing benefits

Soft washing safely and thoroughly cleans your exterior surfaces, including your roof, deck, patio, windows, siding, and fencing. It is extremely gentle on the exterior materials of your home, helping to maintain paint, siding, and masonry longer. Soft washing is also the only method to safely and gently clean traditional and synthetic stucco, also known as EIFS or Dryvit. It’s extremely effective because it offers special cleaning chemicals that can tackle particular stains that are common to specific siding surfaces. With soft washing, you will notice a better, longer-lasting clean on all the exterior surfaces of your home and property.

 

Soft washing also won’t strip off your landscape soil or protective mulch. It won’t damage your plants with forceful over-spray. Soft washing is eco-friendly and safe for your plants, pets, and children. It effectively kills live contaminants so they won’t pose any risk to your family’s health and won’t return quickly to your exterior surfaces.
