Soft washing is a low pressure cleaning process commonly used to safely treat and remove organic matter: mildew, bacteria, algae, fungus, moss, lichens in addition to dirt, grime and spiderwebs. Soft washing originated as an alternative to power washing where high pressure can cause damages.
While power washing certainly has its place in home improvement, there are many reasons that you may want to consider soft wash for you next home exterior, driveway, walkway, or patio cleaning and restoration. For both first time cleans and routine maintenance, soft washing has two significant advantages over power washing:
Soft wash is less likely to damage siding and wood, or leave permanent marks on concrete, brick and stone
Soft wash kills algae, mold, and mildew instead of just blasting it off, keeping the surface clean and clear of discoloration longer.
