What is Soft Washing?
DJ’s Painting in southern New Jersey offers soft washing services. Soft washing is an eco-friendly way to clean the outside surfaces of your home or business by using a steady flow of water at low pressure, coupled with some cleaners in the water that are eco-friendly.
Soft washing is completely different than pressure washing because it uses eco-friendly and environmentally safe chemical solutions to clean the exterior of your home, not pressure. These eco-friendly solutions won’t harm your plants and will much more effectively clean your building. They are applied with low pressure not much more than a garden hose and allowed to sit on the surface, think of it as an outdoor extermination… this makes sense considering much of what we are cleaning off is mold and mildew (living organisms). After the soft washing is done an anti-fungal residue is left behind and it stands up to harsh, outdoor elements to keep working to prevent future growth for 12-18 months. It is recommended that you hire a professional for this service as well. It may not use as high of pressure, but the use of the wrong chemicals or wrong mixture ratios can be hazardous or less effective so always hire a pro soft wash provider. Soft washing has many benefits over the traditional power washing.
Increases the Longevity of Your Home or Business
By keeping your home free from rust, mildew, mold, fungi, lichen, algae, and bacteria, you will increase the longevity of the building materials. Your roof is notorious for being beaten down by the elements, and if water sits on your roof for too long, nasties can start growing. Soft washing is perfect to help keep your shingles looking good and clean at the same time.
Soft washing should be incorporated into your regular routine maintenance program. DJ’s Painting in southern New Jersey recommends investing in a soft washing service at least twice a year. Call us today to schedule your soft washing appointment!
