Soft Touch House Washing Charlotte NC


Labor Panes Soft Touch House Washing Services

Pressure Washing and Soft Touch House Washing are both methods of cleaning and restoring various substrates and surfaces, namely more delicate substrates on the exterior of a home or building.

Soft Washing originated in Florida back in the early 1980's. Initially it was conceived as a new and more efficient way of cleaning asphalt shingled roofs, however, since the early days, it has been further developed and is now a method of cleaning and restoring many other substrates and surfaces around a home or commercial property.

Soft Washing was developed to eradicate the damage which was being caused by power washing machinery and equipment when cleaning asphalt shingles. Power Washing Shingles was caused the small limestone particles present in the roof shingles to dislodge and enter the guttering system, leading to premature failure of the roofing structure.

Eco-Friendly cleaning solutions began to be used first to break down and loosen the black and green algae, moss, lichen and general dirt and grime and subsequently, it eliminated the need for the potentially damaging use of High-Pressure Water Cleaning methods which were in popular use at the time.

After news of the these pioneering and highly effective methods spread across the United States and the rest of the world, it became the only method recommended to clean not only Asphalt Shingles, but many other substrates as well. Substrates including Vinyl and Aluminum Siding, Gutters & Downspouts, Bricks, Sandstone, Limestone, Wood and Decking materials, Some Concrete Areas and many others.

Soft Washing is not only safer; it is much more efficient at treating and killing off a range of micro-organisms which thrive in porous substrates such as those mentioned above.

A specialty blend of cleaning agents is applied to the substrate being cleaned and adequate dwell time is given, so the micro-organisms such as moss, algae, mold, and mildew are effectively killed off deep in the porous of the material. This is something Power Washing is not able to do.

Once the micro-organisms have been treated and killed, low-pressure water can be used to gently rinsed the solution and dead spores away. This method has eliminated the potential for damage, retards the regrowth of algae, moss and other micro-organisms, it is not toxic and environmentally friendly.

Fast forward to today, Soft Washing is the preferred method of the Professional Power Washing industry to clean the exterior of homes, buildings, roofs and many other areas.

Soft Washing is also used to clean concrete ground areas as the method is the same as it is to clean roofs or other delicate substrates. It is particularly used in areas that are regularly maintained and perhaps not heavily soiled with dirt and other contaminants. A light spraying of a suitable cleaning agent is applied to concrete areas, which kills off any deeply embedded spores and retards their regrowth.

But among both power washing and soft washing techniques, you should know which one is a better choice. So, have a look at the following important facts and discover on your own:

What Is a Soft Washing Technique?

Soft washing is a gentle, non-abrasive and highly efficient procedure to clean delicate surfaces without applying high pressure. With the combination of right detergents and low pressure, this technique can 100% kill mildew, mold, and algae, by leaving the surface glittering and unharmed.

Usually, a soft wash technique includes special, low-pressure nozzles at the end of a pressure washing gun. That's combined with a biodegradable chemical to remove elements of mold, algae, dirt, pollen, and moss like stains without damaging home surfaces or killing your plants.

Basics Of Soft Washing Services

The soft washing services use a softer pressure, less than 1000 PSI and rely more on the right detergent types and proper dwell time to get a perfect cleaning of surfaces. After the dwell time is passed, the surface can be rinsed thoroughly with low pressure. Remember one important thing that the soft washing services can be safe and effective on all types of surfaces and applied to most areas of your home.

Basics Of Power Washing Services

As compared to soft washing services, the power washing services use high pressure to achieve cleanliness of a surface. In this procedure, the pressure washing wand drives out water at a rate of 2500 PSI or more (Pounds Per Square Inch), which is a great option to get the most stains out of concrete and extremely hard surfaces like brick and all stone types. However, power washing services may cause damage to the delicate surfaces. It can impact paint from wood siding, remove the granules from your roof shingles, dent vinyl panels and destroy window screens.

Whenever you plan to power wash or soft wash your property, the most important thing you should do is to choose the best pressure washing service crew and soft washing service crew to do the job. They have highly trained technicians, who can able to determine how much pressure should be applied, which cleaning agent or detergent to be used on which stain and how to rinse them thoroughly, giving your home an efficient and long-lasting clean.
