What is Soft Washing?

What is Soft Washing?

Soft washing is a safe and very effective low pressure cleaning method. It allows cleaning and sanitising from the safety of the ground or a platform using low pressure equipment that will effectively clean and sanitise exterior surfaces with soft washing chemical.

Soft washing takes a scientific approach to cleaning by using quality eco-friendly Softwash products blended for all kinds of projects. Soft washing is the science behind organic growth; this gives a greater understanding into the most likely causes of organic growth and discolouration. Most of the dirt on properties is living organic bio film or carbon. Soft wash treatments will treat the root cause of the growths, and kill the spores, without damaging the property or harming the environment in any way. Soft washing treats unwanted biological growth and fungus, moss, red and green algae, bacteria, lichen, pollen, mold and other forms of embedded growth on an exterior surface without high pressure. By using low pressure pumps to clean and rinse with minimal pressures.

Soft washing is the fastest and very effective hard surface cleaning method in the UK market producing excellent results. Soft washing can keep surfaces clean for up to 5 years following treatment dependant on weather conditions and position of property. It does not “bio accumulate” and breaks down rapidly on contact with soil to give it a very low environmental footprint. So once dry it is harmless to children and pets.

How is Soft washing different to pressure washing?

Pressure washing is when you use high pressure water to remove mold, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants from any surface. Pressure washing will give you immediate results that look good however they may last for a short period of time. Traditional power washing methods rely on high pressures to literally, blast dirt and grime from the surface. Unfortunately a high pressure jet wash can sometimes cause irreversible damage when not used properly and cause unwanted effects if used incorrectly or used on the wrong surface.

Soft washing advantages over power washing:

•Uses less water 
•Longer lasting results 
•Little noise 
•Is safe for all known building materials 
•More cost effective clean 
•Kills the spores left behind by pressure washing 
•Does not damage the surface or exaggerate the weathering affect

DOES YOUR RENDER NEED CLEANING?

On most modern estates through out the uk, rendered buildings are becoming a common site. Previously almost all houses that were built were done so using brick and left this way, now building companies are trying to make every house look individual and in doing so are putting a rendered finish on some. The pictures provided above of render cleaning in Gloucester show the types of the dirt that can be expected.

WHY HAVE YOUR RENDER CLEANED?

Your home is the normally the biggest cost of your life, you spend most of your time in or around it, its where you raise your family and live. Is it not common sense to keep it looking at its best and to keep up to date with maintenance. With render being a more common finish all of the time, this is now part of the maintenance of a house.

Leaving it can make your house look unsightly which can negatively affect the the valuation of your house. Leaving this even longer can actually damage the render, if moss and algae are allowed to grow on the surface this can prematurely “rot” the minerals in the render. If left to freeze and expand can blow the surface off the render, which in turn can then be a breeding space for more moss…and so the cycle begins again.

HOW WE CLEAN YOUR RENDERED BUILDING

The way we clean your render depends on quite a few factors, some of these being;

  • How dirty the render is

  • Access in and around the building

  • How quickly the building needs to be clean

  • If chemicals can be used on site

  • Plant life in the area

  • If it is a pedestrian area

 

These are just some of the factors that have to be taken into account if you need your render cleaning.
