Fungus and bacteria are not just an aesthetics issue. These microorganisms are actually eating and decomposing your surfaces at an alarming rate. A soft washing system cleans your surfaces and kills all of the fungus growing on them, providing superior results that last 4 to 6 times longer than pressure washing.
- Soft washing helps to preserve the value of your property
Curb appeal is an important factor when it comes to what home buyers are looking for. Having your home professionally soft washed will remove any unsightly dirt, mold, or mildew that may be growing on it, restoring your home’s exterior to a like-new condition. Soft washing helps you freshen up and preserve your home’s appearance, and will become a major value to potential buyers.
- Soft washing helps to prevent permanent damage on your property
Have you ever noticed that your siding or roof has a green tint or might look extra dirty at the end of a long winter? This is likely due to the buildup of mold, mildew, moss, and algae on those outdoor surfaces. These substances can flourish in winter weather conditions, thanks to the often damp weather. Any accumulated dirt can also help create ideal conditions for them to grow during the season.
They can grow on just about any surface, especially roofs and siding, including wood, vinyl, stucco, and more. A good cleaning, especially before the winter weather hits, can help prevent it from taking hold.
- Soft washing can help keep you safe
Much of the dirt, dust, mold, and other allergen materials that accumulate in certain areas of your property and roof are ending up in your home. These things can cause serious health issues to you and your family, and cost you tens of thousands of dollars to repair.
Fungi and mold are bad for our health, but they can be even more dangerous to young children or individuals who suffer from asthma and respiratory problems. If these mold particles spread into your window frames or air ducts, they can eventually spread throughout your home and create a polluted environment. Soft washing your home will kill these unwanted bacteria, and provide a more healthy, comfortable living environment.
- Soft washing helps to prepare surfaces to be worked on
Soft washing is the best way to clean and prepare surfaces, such as decks or exterior walls, for painting, refinishing, or staining. It also ensures that hard-to-reach areas within crevices and cracks are thoroughly cleaned.
- Soft washing is a more eco-friendly cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning, a power washer can use 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.
Oftentimes, people hesitate when they hear the word “chemicals,” however it’s really not such a dirty word. In reality, 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 rinsed 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 of their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind.
