Soft Washing?

Soft washing is a exterior cleaning method that uses a combination of specialized cleaning solutions and specialized equipment  to clean roofs, houses, decks, concrete, pavers, awnings, buildings, brick surfaces and more.  The cleaning solution is applied to the surface to let dwell for a short period.  Next the surface is thoroughly rinsed with low-pressure.  We finish by applying a neutralizing agent to assure there is no cleaning solution left on the any surface or any vegetation.  

"Soft washing is recommended by siding manufactures and all shingle manufactures" 

This cleaning method is much safer and effective than high-pressure cleaning.  It avoids damaging surfaces its cleaning by using a gentle approach and environmentally friendly cleaning solutions.  Also, it is capable of using soft washing technique for cleaning almost all surfaces.  This is because it kills all organic growth at the root of where its growing on the surface and will not allow further growth to just reappear.  Compared to high-pressure cleaning, soft washing will keep surfaces cleaner for at least 6x as long.

Why you should ALWAYS have your roof soft washed?

Algae, mold, mildew and bacteria's grows on your roof over time.  A very common bacteria is Gloeocapsa Magma (Blue Green Algae) that thrives in humidity and hot temperatures and spreads out, having a destructive effect on your roof. It feeds off the moisture that all types of shingles hold on to. While the roof is inffected, it begins to lose its ability to reflect UV rays and eventually rots the shingles.  Not to mention as this bacteria grows it does not allow your house to hold energy properly.  Keep your roof clean and save your homes energy, extend it life period, increases your homes curb appeal, avoid costly damages caused by algae, mold, mildew and bacteria's.  It will safe you money over time by maintaining your roof every 3-5 years.  Last, it will extend its life cycle by 5-10 years.  

Why not high pressure?

High Pressure cleaning can cause extreme damages that lead to expensive repairs.  High pressure can cause water to get behind your siding and over time will grow mold, mildew and extensive water damage that you will not see until its too late.  

For home owners who have brick, high pressure can cause the mortar to get knocked out of place.

When cleaning wood high pressure can gouged wood to the point of no return.  Many people think high pressure is the proper way to remove the mold, dirt and grime that has built up over time on wood but high pressure is not the answer.  

High Pressure causes paint chips to be blasted both small and large all around the ground which will get mixed into the soil where kills or pets can potential ingest it.  In cases where the paint is lead based high pressure will cause both small and large chips to be blasted all around the yard and get mixed into the soil where the kids can potential ingest it.
