3 Myths About Soft Washing

HomeBlog3 Myths About Soft Washing

Soft washing is a relatively newer cleaning technique, which you may or may not have heard about. For those who are not familiar with it, soft washing cleans exterior surfaces by combining gentle water pressure with cleaning solutions that remove contaminants. It is intended to not only clean surfaces, but also target mold, mildew, and algae so that surfaces are protected from damage. The gentle pressure means that it can be used on more delicate surfaces such as brick.

3 Myths About Soft Washing

There are some misunderstandings about soft washing, and we’re here to address three common myths:

  • Soft washing chemicals are harmful. This is false! The cleaning chemicals used as part of soft washing are environmentally friendly. They target mold and grime, but they do not harm people, pets, or the environment. You do not need to be concerned about your family or your property when you choose soft washing.
  • Soft washing is only useful for extremely dirty surfaces. Even if you can’t see it, microorganisms and contaminants are present on all kinds of surfaces. It might seem like it is more worthwhile to wait until you can obviously see dirt or grime, but soft washing is effective at cleaning and protecting surfaces when it is done consistently.
  • Soft washing is not as effective as pressure washing. Each tool is effective when used properly for the appropriate situation. Pressure washing uses the intense water pressure to blast away dirt on durable surfaces like concrete, while soft washing combines cleaning chemicals with water to target mold and mildew. Since it eliminates the root cause, soft washed surfaces will stay clean for longer.
