What is Softwashing?

Softwashing is a safe and very effective low-pressure cleaning method. It allows cleaning and sanitizing from the safety of the ground using low-pressure equipment to apply a softwash biocide. Softwashing takes a scientific approach to cleaning by using quality eco-friendly softwash products. Most of the dirt and dicolouration on properties is caused by living organic biofilm or carbon.

Softwash treatments will treat the root cause of the growths and kill the spores without damaging the property or harming the environment in any way. Softwashing treats unwanted biological growth including fungi, moss, red and green algae, bacteria, lichen and mould. Low-pressure pumps are used to clean and rinse surfaces using minimal pressure. Softwashing can keep surfaces clean for up to 3 years following treatment depending on weather conditions and the position of the property. It does not bio-accumulate and breaks down rapidly on contact with soil hence its very low environmental footprint. So once dry, it is harmless to children and pets.

How is softwashing different to pressure washing?

Pressure washing is when you use high-pressure water to remove mould, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants from any surface. Pressure washing will give you immediate results that look good, however they may only 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 using a high-pressure jet wash on render could potentially cause irreversible damage, so sofwashing is the safest and most effective solution.
