Wait! There is a Safer Alternative to Pressure Washing

soft washing before and after

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.

All About Carpet Cleaning

Have you ever had your carpets cleaned and noticed the same stains appear shortly after? This phenomenon is called wicking. It happens when stains are deeply embedded in the padding or when carpets were not dried properly. While wicking is the culprit in most cases it can also be caused by excessive cleaning agents that were not properly extracted or rinsed.


Our process and RO technology allow us to use half the cleaning agent that is recommended. This coupled with our pure water technology leave carpets in homes cleaner than expected. The most noticeable differences are:

Reduces Cleaning Agents

Longer Lasting Results

Purified Water

Eliminates Residue

The proper method for cleaning carpets is a five-stage process. Paneless Home Services takes a comprehensive approach to cleaning. This means we will not skip steps and will not underestimate with the intention to upsell each step needed to properly clean. We take our time to deliver quality and do not operate with a business model of low pricing and high volume. We love to educate on how to maintain cleaning results and how our process saves money because cleaning is required less often. Due to trade secrets, we can only detail our entire method with a consultation.

1. Precondition      2. Agitate     3. Extraction     4. Grooming     5. Drying


Sometimes the pets we love so dearly can leave behind a not so pleasant smell. Has a carpet cleaner ever taken the time to show you how many spots your pet has left? Moisture meters and urine detection equipment are used to identify the areas of concern and prove the results after treatment. Enzymes and a controlled flood method are used where appropriate to treat not only the carpet but the padding for odor removal. We carry a wide variety of solutions for stains and odors and have successfully cleaned blood, urine, and paint out of carpets. This is not always guaranteed as it is highly dependent on what products have been used and how the stains were handled prior to our arrival. However, we take pride in knowing that stains other companies have left behind, we were able to permanently remove!

Protect Your Investment

After cleaning, treating carpets with a protectant is recommended. Protectant first works to repel spills so they remain on the surface, and then helps resist dirt so that it does not adhere to the carpet and protects the fiber from top to bottom. Protectants have long been used to prolong the life of carpet and now many manufacturers treat carpet before it is purchased. However, it does break down with heavy traffic and even during a proper steam cleaning. It should be reapplied occasionally for maximum protection of your investment.

Paneless is concerned with providing sanitary and safe floors for children and pets. We have invested in the best equipment and certified technicians to clean, rinse, and extract properly.

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.
