Wait! There is a Safer Alternative to Pressure Washing

Pressure washing might be the first solution that comes to mind when you see dirt or mold around your home. Be aware! Pressure washers can reach up to 4,000 PSI. When pressure is too high, it can lead to permanent scarring of your surfaces. Additionally, pressure washing mold or algae can be a band-aid solution. Alas, there is a safe solution to clean your home or business! Soft washing lasts longer, uses low pressure, and less water.

What is soft washing?

Soft washing is a safe alternative to pressure washing. It uses water-based, biodegradable solutions that suspend dirt and grime. This process dissolves cobwebs and kills mold, bacteria, and algae while sanitizing the surface. It uses one-third the water of pressure washing and lasts four-to-six times longer. Why does it last longer? Pressure washing pushes and spreads mold spores to other areas. These organics are likely to reappear in a short period. However, soft washing kills mold spores before rinsing them away.

What is the process?

First, plan and prepare. We cover all electrical outlets, remove small items, assess the plants, put up caution signs, and run the lines required. Next, a certified soft washing technician will spray affected areas with solutions. These solutions are fed through lines using low-pressure pumps. The first application is a wake-up coat required to open the organic spores. After dwell time, the technician will rinse and apply another application or use a new chemical, depending on the stain type. This process is repeated as many times as needed.

Finally, preserving plant life during the soft washing process is vital. Plant washes and soaking methods must be used before, during, and after the service to neutralize cleaning agents. This ensures your grass, shrubbery, and plants are protected. 

Who is qualified to perform soft washing?

When hiring a soft washing company, it is essential to hire a company requiring all their technicians to undergo a comprehensive training and certification program. Soft washing is chemical-based, so technicians must learn how to protect plant life, understand where chemicals flow, and how to neutralize chemicals adequately. In addition, remember to protect your family by hiring a company that provides proof of insurance (liability and worker’s compensation), a list of references, and professionalism.

RO technology is reverse osmosis water that is filtered through a five-stage process. This process removes all total dissolved solids and chlorine that cause water to spot or dry hard because of minerals. Since the water is pure, it acts as a cleaning agent itself. Water loves minerals so when we remove those minerals, it wants them back. We refer to it as thirsty water. So ask yourself, what is in soil? Minerals. Now you have water that wants minerals. So we use this RO water to adsorb the soil on a window or floor surfaces. This RO water is incorporated into the majority of the services we provide.
