- Soft Washing

Soft washing uses just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and doesn't deteriorate or harm the surface like power washing frequently can. Soft washing also does so much more than pressure washing because it does more than just clean your roof.

4 Reasons to Use Soft Washing
There are plenty of reasons to pick soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for pressure washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened 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. Normal power washing simply removes the outer layer of this growth and doesn't solve the root of the problem, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after pressure washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Poorly trained or inexperienced power washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, especially if it's older to start with.
- More sustainable cleaning method
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Alternatively, soft washing only applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is made up of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so effective that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
