What is SoftWashing?
SoftWashing is a safe, effective and smart way to renew and refresh your home or business. We use Low Pressure Electric Motors along with Biodegradable Cleaning Agents to safely eliminate Mold, Mildew, Algae and even Rust Stains from your exterior surface. Pressure washing can be destructive and can damage the surface you are trying to treat. It can even void your roofing warranty.
SoftWashing kills micro-organisms at the root. Pressure washing only blasts away what’s on the surface, leaving behind the potential for the quick return of algae, mold and other growth.
No Pressure Damage
Pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it’s older. They create erosion and strip away materials that might have been loosened up by decomposition or ageing. While it’s an appropriate method for heavy-equipment, most commercial and residential projects benefit much more from the softwash method.
More Eco-Friendly Sanitizing Option
Pressure washers utilize anywhere from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute. In one hour of cleaning, a pressure washer can use upwards of 500 gallons.
On the other hand, SoftWashing only uses approximately 60 gallons of treatment solution, which is made up of about 40 gallons of water.
It Treats The Infestation
The surfaces on your home and business properties aren’t just dirty, they’re infected. Typical pressure washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and doesn’t fix the root of the problem, leaving your surface susceptible again. Organic growth on your surfaces is like shrubs–if you cut it back, it will come back healthier and stronger. The growth must be attacked at the source.
The SoftWash treatment solution is so effective that it can last up to 6 times longer than pressure washing, which means your surfaces stay sanitized longer. Making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
Here in Florida, bacteria and mildew builds up on roofs, leaving unsightly black spots and streaks. We see a lot of rust from vent pipes that leak down homes too. When we softwash your roof, we not only kill the organic growth that’s eroding your shingles and tiles, we revive inorganic surfaces like tile, metal and powder coatings.
DECK & FENCING
Wood decks and fences are subjected to damage from organic growth, weather and UV rays. Annual treatment is a must to keep wood from degrading. SoftWashing treats and conditions wood, and provides a UV inhibitor to protect from the sun.
Dirt and grime can reduce the efficiencies of solar power systems by almost 20%. Routine maintenance softwashing keeps your panels producing all year long.
EXTERIOR & SIDING
Keeping your home’s exterior sanitized is not only visually pleasing, it retains the value of your home. UV damage will wear down on your home, and cause siding to become brittle and crack when pressure is applied to it. SoftWashing rejuvenates exterior surfaces by providing a buffing agent to keep damage at bay until the next treatment.
Striping occurs when pollution, oxidation and dirt run down the gutters over a long period causing the unsightly stripes. SoftWashing delivers the right ratio of chemicals to the area leaving it spotless every time, while protecting soffits and fascia.
Harmful organic growths can wear on pool surfaces causing them to be more slick and dangerous when wet. Our chemicals are 100% safe in the pool environment.
BOAT DOCKS & PIERS
Boat docks are susceptible to incredible damage constantly, and maintaining them can be challenging given that most of them are built with metal and wood. WDO’s or wood destroying organisms can reduce the life of your dock or pier and put you in a tough position to repair or replace, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars. It’s the first thing people see when they pull up to your home, and you worked hard to have a home on the water. Let us help you protect your hard work, and preserve your investment.
DRIVEWAYS & WALKWAYS
Our home’s concrete surfaces see the most wear, leaving them to be highly susceptible to additional erosion from the blowing and blasting of a pressure washer, which can also reveal the aggregate under the surface. SoftWashing leaves a residual inhibitor to your surface that keeps them treated for 6x longer, guaranteed.
SoftWashing works perfectly with windows, where pressure is not necessary. We use low pressures to deliver our solution, which has a waxing agent to make them really pop when we’re done. Our pure water final application leaves them spot-free.
Dust, soot, rust and bacteria can sit on your screened enclosures for years until it’s noticed. We have the perfect softwash solution to revive those screens to their former glory.
