What Is Soft Washing?
Soft washing is a premium slow-acting, long term biocide cleaning method which eliminates toxic mould and bacteria on any roof or exterior surface. Soft washing has been established in North America for over 30 years and is the only cleaning method covered under warranty by every American shingle manufacturer who states no grooming, scraping, brushing, or pressure washing to be used to clean roofs. This premium biocide cleaning method is now available in Melbourne, Australia.
Soft washing was developed out of necessity for a roof clean which would kill mould spores and remove all mould growth including moss and lichen for the long term WITHOUT damaging the surface. Unlike high pressure washing which has an effect similar to “sand blasting” damaging the surface only encouraging further mould regrowth while reducing it’s service life.
ecosoftwash™ is Australia’s only soft washing specialist that uses this exclusive biocide cleaning method that produces a premium long term clean every time. ecosoftwash™ achieves this by using the latest water saving, no pressure, premium soft washing technology to gently apply our eco-friendly, biodegradable (pH7) commercial grade custom formulated mould killer to any roof or exterior surface.
How Soft Washing Works
Once the exterior surface is treated our custom cleaning solution kills the toxic moss and mould spores within 15 minutes. Over the next 12 months and beyond, the surface will progressively become cleaner month after month while mother nature takes over using the wind and rain to gently remove and flush the dead biological growth without damaging the exterior surface. Once the exterior surface is treated, further cleaning won’t be required in most cases for around 20 years. Another benefit of soft washing is the growth retardant additive used exclusively by ecosoftwash™ which ensures your soft wash roof or exterior clean will stay cleaner for longer against traditional pressure washing.
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, concrete driveways, shade sails, canvas awnings, perspex canopies, marquees, commercial umbrellas, paving, carparks, exterior walls, grave stones, brick walls, fencing, outdoor furniture, timber decks, tennis courts, pool surrounds, public statues and memorials, in fact ANY exterior surface.
Don’t Pressure Wash Your Roof! This is Why!
Once an exterior surface has been pressure washed it will appear 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. Also, it damages and reduces the service life of 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. Terracotta tiles like sandstone pavers, due to the material being a natural product, should NEVER be pressure washed. Common lichen which appears green and often leafy will be unable to be removed and attempts will only damage the roof surface even further. Pressure washing removes or strips the roof paint or coatings that help protect your roof from nature’s elements. It will also dislodge any loose ridge mortar encouraging birds and water to enter your ceiling cavity.
Thank you so much for your effort. Really appreciate your attention to detail. Hans.

I would highly recommend Richard from ecosoftwash.com.au not only for the great work he has done, but also for being such a great guy to deal with. From the moment I rang to organise a quote, changing the days because of expected rain, through to the job being done today - Richard has shown he is a reliable and honest person. Also I greatly appreciated that he highlighted to me a problem with my blocked drains! Thanks Richard - glad to know I have someone reliable I can call on for my annual soft wash clean.
