4 Biggest Reasons to Soft Wash
There are a lot of reasons to choose soft washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:
- Alternative to pressure washing
Pressure washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened up by decomposition or aging. It might be suitable for some tasks and not others.
- It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Typical power washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this growth and doesn't fix the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after power washing is finished.
- No damage from pressure
Inadequately trained or inexperienced pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, especially if it's older to start with.
- More eco-friendly cleaning method
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing just applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is made up of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so effective that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than pressure washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
