Soft Washing is an incredibly effective and versatile method for restoring the pristine appearance of building facades by eradicating mould and dirt. Unlike traditional pressure washing techniques that rely on forceful streams of water, Soft Washing harnesses the power of specialised cleaning solutions to perform the majority of the cleaning process.

What sets Soft Washing apart is its gentle approach, making it particularly suitable for delicate surfaces and areas that require work at heights. By minimising the need for mobilising access equipment and obtaining council permits or managing traffic, Soft Washing presents a cost-effective solution for cleaning high-rise structures.

The process begins by blending a ratio of soft cleaning solutions, specifically designed to combat stubborn dirt and mould. These solutions are then expertly injected into a low-pressure water stream, allowing them to reach impressive heights of up to 13 meters when propelled onto a building’s façade.

Rinse Away The Grime

Once applied, the soft cleaning solution is left to dwell for a suitable period, ensuring maximum effectiveness in breaking down grime and impurities. Finally, the solution is thoroughly rinsed off using clean water, revealing a remarkably revitalised surface.

Although Soft Washing achieves approximately 85% of the results obtained through high-pressure cleaning methods, it offers an advantageous cost-saving advantage. In fact, by opting for Soft Washing, clients can significantly reduce their expenses by up to a third, without compromising on the overall outcome.

Soft Washing represents a superior approach to facade cleaning, delivering outstanding results while being gentle on delicate surfaces. Its ability to tackle hard-to-reach areas, minimise costs, and provide an exceptional cleaning performance make it an ideal choice for maintaining the aesthetic appeal of buildings.

What Are the Advantages of Soft Washing?

Soft washing your home’s exterior offers numerous benefits that go beyond enhancing curb appeal and maintaining property values. Here are the advantages you can enjoy with soft washing.

Effortlessly Clean Hard-to-Reach Areas

Soft washing allows you to clean even the most challenging-to-access areas of your home’s exterior. With a remarkable reach of up to 13 metres from the ground, there’s no need for ladders, extension poles, or scaffolding to clean high spots like the roof or gutters.

Minimise Potential Damage to Your Home’s Exterior

Using a low-pressure wash system significantly reduces the risk of damage to your home’s delicate surfaces. Soft washing provides a gentle alternative, ensuring the preservation of your property exterior without compromising its integrity.

Reduced Labor Intensity Compared to Pressure Washing

Pressure washing often requires close proximity to the surface being cleaned. Cleaning second-story exteriors or the roof necessitates time-consuming setup involving ladders or scaffolding. Additionally, the precautions associated with high-pressure water can prolong the process. In contrast, soft washing demands less labor and setup time, making it a more efficient option.

Long Lasting Cleanliness

Soft washing utilises cleaning solutions that effectively kill mould and microorganisms at a molecular level. This not only removes them from the surface but also helps to prevent their regrowth.

Mitigate Safety Hazards and Accidents

By avoiding the use of ladders and high-pressure water, soft washing significantly reduces the risk of falling or slipping during the cleaning process.

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Solutions

Soft washing solutions are designed to be biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Foster a Healthier Home Environment

Left unchecked, the presence of mould, mildew, algae, dirt, grime, and pollen on your home’s exterior can pose health risks to your family. Soft washing effectively eliminates these contaminants from your property using a combination of low-pressure water and specialised cleaning solutions, creating a healthier living environment for you and your loved ones.

Although the soft was process is gentle on surfaces being cleaned, as there are cleaning solutions used in the process it is important to take steps to protect property and surrounding areas from any potential damage.

  • When cleaning roofs that are connected to water tanks the down pipes must be isolated to stop the cleaning solutions, dirt and mould from entering any water tanks
  • Doors and windows must be closed and rags placed under doors if they are not fitted with a weather strip to prevent water from entering the building
  • Plants are rinsed before and after treatment and cover with a light plastic if required.
