Benefits of Softwashing Your Buildings

Pressure washing and soft washing are both methods used to clean exterior surfaces, but they employ different techniques and are suited to different types of surfaces. Pressure washing uses high-pressure water to blast away dirt, dust, and other unwanted substances, and is typically used on hardscapes such as driveways, sidewalks, and decks. Power washing is a similar technique that uses hot water.

Soft washing, on the other hand, uses low-pressure water and cleaning solutions to effectively kill mold, mildew, moss, bacteria, and other microorganisms. It is ideal for cleaning more fragile surfaces such as roof shingles, windows, glass doors, lanais, screens, patio enclosures, stucco, coquina, vinyl siding, cedar shake siding, wood panel siding, and outdoor furniture.

Soft washing is a method of cleaning exterior surfaces of a building using low pressure and specialized cleaning solutions. It is often used for cleaning roofs, walls, and surfaces that are sensitive to high pressure cleaning.

Soft washing uses low pressure and specialized cleaning solutions, while pressure washing uses high pressure water to blast dirt and grime off surfaces. Soft washing is considered to be a more gentle and effective method of cleaning, as it can remove dirt, mold, and other contaminants without damaging the surface.

Soft washing can be used on a variety of exterior surfaces, including roofs, walls, siding, decks, patios, and driveways. It is particularly effective for cleaning surfaces that are sensitive to high pressure, such as delicate roofing materials or painted surfaces.

The frequency of soft washing depends on a variety of factors, including the condition of the exterior surfaces, the climate, and the surrounding environment. Generally, it is recommended to have a professional soft wash every 1-5 years depending on the condition of the house.

Soft washing can remove dirt, mold, and other contaminants, which can improve the appearance of the building and extend the life of the surfaces. It can also help to prevent damage caused by mold, mildew, and other contaminants, and can improve the overall health and safety of the building.
