No Pressure . No Damage . No Rinsing
What Is Soft Washing?
If you aren’t familiar with soft washing, you should be! Exclusive to ecosoftwash our soft washing system is a no pressure, no damage and effective way to clean your roof or any other exterior surface without damaging the surface being cleaned. Ecosoftwash uses the latest water saving, low pressure soft washing technology to gently apply our eco-friendly, pH neutral (pH7) biodegradable cleaning solution. Once applied, our cleaning solution unlike pressure washing selectively targets and kills the toxic spores from unsightly moss and mould growing on your roof or any other exterior surface. Exclusive to us is our growth retardant roof additive which ensures your soft wash roof clean will stay cleaner for longer than roofs cleaned by other methods.
How Pressure Washing Damages Your Roof
Traditional pressure washing uses between 3500 – 5000psi of water pressure in an attempt to remove moss, black mould, lichen and liverwort but it always fails to treat the underlying problem…spores. Why? It comes down to the very nature of the cleaning method. It’s not about high pressures and blasting all day while damaging the surface, pressure washing will never treat or kill the spores of any organic growth. Pressure washing is designed for cleaning cars, motor bikes, trucks, removing graffiti and many other commercial and industrial applications not for treating moss and mould.
– The surface will look clean to the naked eye, but the high psi cleaning method fails to kill and remove moss and mould spores. The very heart of the unsightly look on your roof.
– Damages and ages the entire roof surface by removing the fine protective outer layer making it more porous which encourages greater mould regrowth within 1-2 years and more prone to water damage into your ceiling cavity in the future.
– Common lichen which appears green and often leafy will be unable to be removed and attempts will only damage the roof surface even further.
– Removes or strips the roof paint or coatings that help protect your roof from nature’s elements.
– Cracks and dislodges loose ridge mortar.
– Not water efficient…pressure washing uses high volumes of water.
How Soft Washing Works
Once the exterior surface has been sprayed with our 100% biodegradable cleaning solution (no rinsing required), it immediately starts to work by killing the toxic spores of any organic growth present like moss, mould or lichen. Over the next 12 months and beyond, mother nature takes over using the wind and rain to gently remove and flush the dead biological growth without damaging the exterior surface. When an exterior surface has been soft washed, it will continue to self clean for 12 months and beyond keeping your home or workplace looking good. After 12 months or so the surface will remain clean for up to 3 – 5 years dependant on location. Organic growth like spotty lichen patches and fungus growth on metal roofs erodes the protective paint surface exposing the bare roof sheets to the weather causing corrosion and premature life-span. On tiled roofs organic growth damages mortar joints, colour coatings and creates tile movement causing potential water damage.
Soft washing is ideal for roof cleaning, pergola roofs, skylights, driveways, shade sails, canvas awnings, perspex canopies, marquees, commercial umbrellas, paving, carparks, exterior walls, grave stones, brick walls, fencing, outdoor furniture, entertainment areas, tennis courts, pool surrounds, public statues and memorials, in fact ANY exterior surface.
Soft Washing Surface Cleaning Times
Surface cleaning times vary depending on the type of organic growth, infestation levels, surface material and total rainfall over the cleaning period. Any exterior surface will progressively become cleaner month after month over the following 12 months and beyond.
Disclaimer: Due to water blasting damaging your roof surface in several ways and possibly voiding any warranty or insurance claims, ecosoftwash never use equipment that involves high pressures. Toxic cleaning solutions that contain bleach, chlorine and acids are never used by ecosoftwash. Once applied, they create major corrosion issues with any metal surface like roofing sheets, roof valleys, guttering and down pipes. These products also kill plants and pollute our waterways.
