What is Soft Washing?

Soft Washing is the use of water-based, biodegradable chemicals to break down dirt and grime, bug nests and webs, kill mould, mildew, algae and bacteria – leaving the surface clean and sterilized and is a safer alternative to pressure washing.

Soft Washing consumes just one third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts 4-6 times longer, and does not deteriorate or harm the surface like power washing frequently can. Soft Washing also does a lot more than pressure washing because it does more than just clean your roof. The products used in our System don't simply tidy; they penetrate, sanitize, and eradicate the root of the issue.

Treating your roof with Soft Washing is more like bug control – the combination of safe, eco-friendly chemicals ensure that the bacteria that create buildup are not just partly swept away, but eliminated completely.


Roof Cleaning and More..

Soft Washing can be performed on a wide variety of surfaces where algae and bacteria grow. The same bacterium that causes black streaks on roofs can also grow on:

Concrete / Brick / Tile / Wood / Vinyl / Aluminium and much more!

If you're searching for a method to eliminate what's cultivating on the surface of your roof, decking, wall or fence... break the cycle of pressure washing and use a service that can get rid of the problem 100%. 


Biodegradable, Environmentally Friendly Chemicals

Generally, people are scared of the word "chemicals," and in some cases, they have the right to be, but it's really not such a dirty word. In fact, everything is a chemical, even water (hydrogen dioxide).

The chemicals used in Soft Washing aid in the break down of contaminants and infestations, so they can be easily washed away. They do all the work without all the pressure. Our chemicals are water based, non-hazardous, and are biodegradable, meaning they break down into carbon and water within twenty days after their introduction into the environment; leaving no contaminants behind. The use of these chemicals fall under the Good Stewards code of practice of which City Cleaning Specialists are part of.


4 Main Reasons to Soft Wash!

There are plenty of reasons to choose Soft Washing over pressure or power washing, but here are our biggest reasons:

  1. Alternative to power washing
    Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that might have been loosened up by decomposition or aging. It may be suitable for some projects and not others.

  2. It actually treats the infestation
    Your home isn't just dirty – it's infected. Typical pressure washing merely gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and doesn't fix the root of the problem, leaving your surface susceptible again not long after pressure washing is finished.

  3. No damage from pressure
    Pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, particularly if it's older to start with.

  4. Soft Washing is a more eco-friendly cleaning option
    Pressure washers utilise from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons (820L) upwards to 480 gallons (2180L) of water. On the other hand, soft washing just uses approximately 60 gallons (270L) of cleaning solution, which is made up of about 40 gallons (180L) of water.

    The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4–6 times longer than pressure washing. Making it more sustainable for the environment and your wallet.
