Soft washing is a popular pressure washing service that’s often used to remove dirt, algae, and other debris from your home on more delicate surfaces that could otherwise be damaged by powerful pressure washing. Soft washing is often used on asphalt roofing shingles, vinyl siding, stucco surfaces, and more!

How Does Soft Washing Work?

Soft washing uses specific detergents and solutions to break down grime, pollutants, debris, algae, and other contaminants on your home’s surface. Rather than pressurized water forcefully removing debris, these solutions have been designed to eat away at caked on dirt and remove it, making it ideal for roofing and other surfaces that may otherwise be damaged by using pressure washing.

Why Should I Soft Wash my Home?

Soft washing is ideal for both roofing and vinyl siding on your home. Unlike traditional pressure washing, soft washing will eat away at any contaminants on your home and prevent any damage such as paint chips or wash away the asphalt covering on your shingles. Soft washing isn’t just great at removing dirt and pollutants from your home, but also bacteria buildup as well!

The solutions used in soft washing help eliminate bacteria and spores from your siding or roofing, making it difficult for algae and other debris to build back up again quickly, keeping your home cleaner for longer and help you maintain that curb appeal. Soft washing your home will cut back on your allergies, remove mold and other contaminants that can seep into your home if not dealt with properly over time, and keep up your curb appeal.

How Often Should I Soft Wash my Home?

Depending on where your home is located depends on how often you should soft wash your home! Here in Florida, the humidity combined with intense heat and heavy rains can often cause algae growth and other contaminants to build up relatively quickly. Giving your home a walk-around each month and examining your siding is a good way to determine when your next wash should be. Soft washing is a great way to cut back on having to pressure wash your home, as the solutions can help deter algae growth and other contaminants from building up as quickly compared to traditional pressure washing.
