Softwash exterior cleaning is necessary for homes and businesses to safely clean unwanted dirt and grime without causing damage.

Dirt, grime, and other contaminants can cause erosion and other damage, which can be costly to repair. By regularly softwashing and cleaning your property, you can help prevent these types of problems from occurring.
We also use eco-friendly cleaning solutions in our softwashing process for your home or business which reduces the need for harsh chemicals and minimizes environmental impact.
We take the necessary steps to properly softwash.
First, we prepare the area before starting the softwashing process. We properly clear the area of any obstacles and cover any nearby plants or fragile items with plastic sheets to protect them from the cleaning solution.
Second, we mix our environmentally friendly cleaning solutions together in preparation to be applied to the exterior surface. We apply the solutions with low pressure, so it doesn’t damage the surface while being cleaned.
Third, we begin using a low-pressure sprayer to apply the cleaning solution evenly across the entire surface area of the home or building with an initial coat to start the softwash cleaning process.
Fourth, we let the solution penetrate into the exterior surfaces allowing the cleaning solution to bind and break down dirt, grime, mold, and mildew to be effectively removed through our softwash exterior cleaning.
Fifth, we begin rinsing the surface after the binding and breakdown process of grime on the exterior surfaces. Our process starts at the top of the surface area and works down, making sure to remove the cleaning solution.
If the surface is still dirty after the initial wash, we repeat the process until the desired level of cleanliness is achieved.
Lastly, we properly dispose of any remaining cleaning solution and remove any plastic sheeting or other protective coverings.
It’s important to note that our softwashing is performed by trained professionals to ensure that the job is done correctly and safely.
We provide softwash exterior cleaning for various types of delicate exterior surface areas including:
Overall, softwash exterior cleaning is essential maintenance for homes and businesses. By regularly cleaning your property, safely, you can improve its appearance, increase its value, prevent damage, create a healthier living or working environment, and reduce your environmental impact.
As mentioned before, soft pressure washing allows for delicate exteriors to be safely cleaned without damage to the surface. Although it may seem high-pressure washing can efficiently clean your home or business exterior, usually high-pressure washing does not include cleaning solutions to safely strip dirt and grime.
High-pressure washing methods are good for hard exterior surfaces of your home, business, or commercial property.
Softwashing is also much better and safer for your shingle roof, siding, soffits, wood deck, or fencing. You also need to keep in mind that the psi of the water coming out of a professional pressure washing system is up to 3500 psi depending on the type of pressure cleaning equipment used. We never recommend applying high pressure to any delicate surface of your home or property.
If you use too much pressure you can damage your home, roof, or even hurt yourself. There is also the risk of damaging insulation and soffits, or leaving uneven streaks in the exterior paint of your home, driveway, or roof that was improperly cleaned with high pressure.
Now that you know the difference between high pressure and softwashing, you should feel confident in choosing the best local pressure cleaning to handle your pressure washing needs.
