- Soft Washing
Soft washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, remove bug nests and webs, kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized.
Soft washing consumes just one-third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4 - 6 times longer, and does not erode or harm the surface like pressure washing often can. Soft washing also does so much more than power washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products used in the SoftWash System don't simply clean; they penetrate, sterilize, and get rid of the root of the issue.
Treating your roof with soft washing is more like insect control – the mix of safe, eco-friendly chemicals guarantee that the bacteria that cause buildup are not just partly swept away, but eradicated totally.

Environmentally Friendly, Biodegradable Chemicals in SoftWash
Oftentimes, people are afraid of the word "chemicals," however it's truly not such a dirty word. In fact, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).
The chemicals utilized in soft washing help break down contaminants and infestations, so they can be quickly washed away. They do all the work without all the pressure. Our chemicals are water based, ship non-hazardous, and are biodegradable, meaning they break down into carbon and water within twenty (20) days after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
4 Main Reasons to Use Soft Washing
There are a lot of reasons to choose soft washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:
- Substitute for power washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened up by decay or aging. It might be suitable for some projects and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your property isn't only dirty – it's infected. Normal pressure washing only gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and does not solve the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after pressure washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or unskilled pressure washers can cause severe damage to a roof or other surfaces, especially if it's older to begin with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning option
Power washers use from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of washing a pressure washer can utilize from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing only uses approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which consists of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so effective that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than pressure washing, making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
