Soft washing has quickly become a popular and relied upon process when it comes to exterior home maintenance. Rather than using high pressure water, soft washing relies on the power of chemicals to do the deep cleaning. The typical solution used when soft washing is water, bleach, and some form of surfactant. This solution is applied and then left for 15-20 minutes or longer, depending on the dirtiness of the surface. After the solution is left for the appropriate amount of time, it is rinsed off using an applicator which distributes water at a PSI of 500 or under. Once the surface is rinsed, you’re able to see the benefits soft washing has on your exterior. In this method, the bulk of the work and cleaning is done by the chemicals, or detergents as opposed to high pressure water like other cleaning methods. One selling point for this method compared to others, such as power washing, is that for bacteria, mold, and algae it kills the organism as opposed to just blasting it away like you would with power washing.
Not only does soft washing protect your home, roof, and siding from any further damage, it can also protect the individual who is performing the soft washing process from any potential injuries or lacerations that sometimes accompanies pressure washing. By using the soft washing process, the entire home can be cleaned from top to bottom. This is a big selling point for this process as it eliminates the need to hire multiple companies, or take on multiple exterior cleaning processes. The simplicity and the ease at which this cleaning process can be executed is a big reason as to why it has become such a popular and relied upon cleaning exterior cleaning method. As with all home projects, in order to ensure you are getting the most out of this process it’s best to hire a professional company to help you in your home maintenance efforts.
