Softwashing: Get An Instant Curb Appeal Boost This Spring

Imagine pulling up to a home that looked okay from a distance, but as soon as you got out of your car, you could tell it was in bad shape. The exterior was dirty, the roof was stained, the walkway was covered in grime, and the windows had a dusty film covering them. It doesn’t necessarily mean the house is dated, it just means it has bad curb appeal.

It's the first thing people see when they look at your house, and it can make or break a sale.

Not only that, but going too long without clearing away the algae, mold, and mildew can literally break your roof and stucco over time.

Most homeowners don't care to live in a neighborhood of run-down houses, but what you and everyone else see on the outside is a reflection of what's happening inside too. Maintaining your curb appeal is important - not just for HOA, real estate purposes, or your reputation, but also for your home's longevity. That's where softwashing comes in!

Softwashing is a process that uses low-pressure and biodegradable cleaning agents to clean

surfaces without damaging them. Let's take a closer look at how softwashing can help improve your home's curb appeal - inside and out.


Your roof is constantly exposed to the elements every day, leading to the growth of algae,

mold, and mildew. This isn't only unsightly, but it can damage roofing materials.

Softwashing uses low-pressure electric motors and specialized cleaning agents to kill organic

growth eating away at your tiles and shingles. This process helps preserve your roof and extend its life by reviving inorganic surfaces, including tile, metal, and powder coatings.

Deck & Fencing

Weather and UV rays damage wood decks and fences over time. Still, your deck needs

sunlight — what would be the appeal of a deck if it never saw the light of day? Not only that, but decks can easily become a breeding ground for organic growth like algae in shady, damp areas where debris block the sunlight. Mildew and mold can stain your deck or fencing, making them look old and dirty.

Our softwashing treatment will safely eliminate the organic growth and treat and condition the wood to protect it from UV damage.


Windows are one of the first places dirt and grime build up. This can cause your windows to

become hazy and difficult to see through. The dirt on your window is like a sponge for heat, absorbing sunlight and making it harder to keep your home cool in the summer.

Window softwashing is a safe and effective way to clean your windows without harsh

chemicals or high-pressure water. Pressure isn't necessary to break down dirt, grease, and grime - but a solution with a waxing agent and pure water treatment will make them look brand new and help keep them that way.

Driveways & Walkways

Walkways and driveways are often overlooked when it comes to curb appeal. While they're the first thing people see when they come to your house, they can be easily overshadowed by landscaping or a porch.

Still, these areas are important and should be kept clean and free of debris that can lead to

mold build-up and stain your driveway. After all, you don't want these contaminants to harm your children or pets or anger your homeowner's association.

Not to mention, concrete surfaces see the most wear, making them susceptible to erosion from pressure washers. Softwashing leaves behind a residual inhibitor, turning an instant curb appeal boost into a long-term one.

Softwashing for all your curb appeal needs

How we present ourselves to the world is important. It's especially important when it comes to our homes. While your curb appeal is about the appearance of your home, in many ways, it's also a good indication of your home's life expectancy.
