Know what chemicals you need
There are only three chemicals that you need to mix to make your soft wash solution. First and foremost, you need to start your base with bleach. Bleach is the main component to the mix because it is used to kill off any bacteria, germs, mildew, mold, and stagnant viruses. The bleach is mixed with the second ingredient, water, which is used only to dilute the bleach. So, if your bleach is already diluted then there is no need to add any more water. The third ingredient is cleaning surfactant. What is a chemical surfactant? It is a soap that is used to lift greases, sticky substances, and stuck on mud. It is the same thing that you use on your cloths in the washing machine. These three ingredients are the only ingredients you need to make your soft wash mix.
Know what pressure is correct
Soft washing isn’t pressure washing. Pressure washing uses a high-pressure valve that forces dirt and grime off the surface. Instead of pressure, soft washing uses the soap to lift the dirt. So, you need to know what pressure is best for your surface. Mainly the water is used to wet the surface and wash the soap from the area. Even a hose can be used during the soft washing process.
Hire a professional for proper care
The process is pretty simple, but the proper care and mix of the chemicals is highly important. A professional will be able to bring all of the right equipment. If you try to do it yourself then you will be buying all of the chemicals and the equipment yourself. Soft washing doesn’t get rid of everything. You still will need to remove the larger debris. If you are washing your roof then getting a professional to get up there is your best option.
