A soft washing service softens the exterior of a home, helping to reduce harmful runoff from roofs and driveways. Soft washing is often used in place of pressure washing to remove moss, mildew, or dirt from roofs and siding without removing paint or damaged windows.
Soft Washing Equipment
The soft washer uses a high-pressure water nozzle equipped with a specially designed spray tip. The soft wash tool gives your house a deep clean by applying only soft washes rather than pressures washes which cause harm to homes and their surroundings. It applies approximately 100 PSI (pounds per square inch) of water pressure at just 360 degrees around the nozzle. This makes for an incredibly gentle cleaning process that looks fantastic on all types of siding and roofs.
The soft washing service can be done commercially or by a soft washer working alone to clean homes in the neighborhood. The soft washer may start out cleaning a few houses, but word spreads quickly about soft washers' effectiveness and soft washing services are typically in high demand.
Soft Washing Costs
Typically soft washing costs should cost between $0.25-$0.50 per square foot of surface area cleaned, depending on how much labor is required to reach difficult areas to access with the soft washing tool/service. With an average home requiring around 2,000-3,000 square feet of surface area covered in dirt and moss/mildew/algae - washing costs will range from $500-$750 for soft washing services.
Benefits of Soft Washing vs Power Washing
Power washing has been used for decades to remove built-up paint, grime, and debris from homes. While soft washing is less abrasive than power washing it is still an effective method of cleaning roofs and siding without causing damage or having to repaint or fix expensive window treatments due to pressure damage. Soft washing allows the soft washer to be more precise and concentrate on problem areas, rather than taking a scattershot approach as with soft washes up and down the side of a home with a wider spray nozzle. There are also environmental benefits of soft washing - along with reducing runoff that damages local water supplies, soft washers can help improve local wildlife habitats by helping rid surfaces of dangerous substances including lead paint dust, arsenic, and even over-fertilized lawns runoff.
Soft Washing vs Bleach Washes
When using soft washing services be aware that bleach washes are not soft washes - bleach washes will damage the soft washing service’s nozzle, hurting its effectiveness in future soft wash jobs. Bleach washes also leave a distinct scent on your home making it obvious that a soft washing service has been performed. Soft washers typically do not use any scents or chemicals to remove molds, mildew, algae, or moss from roofs and siding of homes.
