Soft Wash Cleaning FAQ
Soft washing is an alternative to pressure/power washing that does not use destructive high pressure. Soft washing extensively cleans up surfaces and removes the bacteria that are the root cause of discoloration on roofing systems and also other building surfaces.
Soft washing was developed over twenty years ago. It has been thoroughly examined and it has actually been utilized in predominant Florida resorts, such as Disney, Universal Studios, and also public installations. In addition, over 100,000 roofing systems have actually been successfully cleaned up using Soft Washing.
Soft washing removes the microorganisms that create tarnishing, whereas pressure washing simply washes off the surface layer. Additionally, soft washing does not make use of harmful high pressure, unlike pressure washing, and soft washing treatments last far longer compared to pressure washing treatments.
Typically, a soft washing treatment will last at least 4 times as long as pressure washing, before tarnishing reoccurs. In a lot of instances, our treatments last much longer than one year.
Microorganisms such as mold, mildew, algae, lichen, and bacteria are responsible for the majority of discoloration on roofings as well as other surface areas. Moreover, byproducts of the metabolic rate of these organisms are acidic, and also damaging to surfaces such as roof shingles. Removing these microorganisms stops staining and also enhances the durability of roofings, fencings, as well as decks.
