Soft washing is a highly effective and gentle method of cleaning the exterior of a building or home. Unlike pressure washing, which utilizes high-pressure water streams to remove dirt and grime, soft washing employs a low-pressure application of specialized cleaning solutions to safely and thoroughly clean various surfaces.

The process of soft washing typically involves the following steps:

1. Inspection and Preparation: Before starting the soft washing process, a thorough inspection of the exterior surfaces is conducted. This helps identify any delicate areas, vulnerable materials, or areas requiring extra attention. The surrounding landscaping and nearby objects are also protected or covered to prevent any potential damage from the cleaning solutions.

2. Cleaning Solution Application: Once the inspection is complete, a biodegradable cleaning solution specifically formulated for soft washing is applied to the surfaces. These cleaning solutions are typically a mix of water, detergents, and environmentally friendly chemicals. The solution is sprayed evenly onto the surfaces, ensuring comprehensive coverage.

3. Dwell Time: After the cleaning solution is applied, it needs some time to penetrate and break down the dirt, algae, mildew, or other contaminants on the surface. This dwell time varies depending on the severity of the stains and the type of cleaning solution used.

4. Low-Pressure Rinse: Once the dwell time has elapsed, a low-pressure rinse is performed using water. The rinsing process removes the loosened dirt, grime, and cleaning solution residue. The water pressure is carefully adjusted to avoid causing any damage to the surfaces.

5. Spot Treatment and Detailing: In some cases, stubborn stains or heavily soiled areas may require additional attention. Spot treatments may be applied to these areas and gently agitated with brushes or soft bristle brooms to ensure complete removal of the contaminants.

6. Post-Cleaning Inspection: After the soft washing process is complete, a thorough inspection is conducted to ensure that all surfaces are clean and free from residues. Any remaining spots or areas of concern are addressed accordingly.

Soft washing is particularly beneficial for delicate surfaces such as stucco, vinyl siding, painted surfaces, and roofs. It effectively removes dirt, algae, mold, mildew, and other contaminants without causing damage or surface degradation. This gentle yet efficient cleaning method helps maintain the exterior of a building or home, leaving it refreshed, visually appealing, and protected from potential long-term damage caused by neglect or harsh cleaning techniques.
