Softwashing is a cleaning process utilizing a low pressure delivery system to apply a customized cleaning solution, specially blended to meet the demands of each individual situation or project. Softwashing differs from pressure washing in that a cleaning solution is applied at low pressure, reducing the risk of damage or harm to painted surfaces, roof systems, timbers structures, architectural mouldings and vinyl siding products.
Softwashing was developed from a knowledge and experience in plant sciences. It was reasonable to conclude that the bacteria, moulds, fungus and algae growing on the exterior of buildings were more closely associated with an infection than a stain. The combination of treating pests and fungus on plants with compatible cleaning chemicals and thereby evolved soft-washing.
Replacing the harsh and aggressive pressure washing that property owners were forced to accept, they could now choose to have cleanings done without the damages normally associated with pressure washing.
