What is Soft Washing?
Soft Washing treatments target the root cause of the growths, and kill the spores without causing damage to the property or harming the environment around it.
It treats unwanted biological growths and fungus, moss, lichen, pollen, mould and other forms of embedded growths on the exterior of your property, which cause Red, Green, Yellow and Black Staining.
There are several options when it comes to Soft-Washing, from the use of Biocide that takes unto 12 months to fully treat surfaces, but has the benefit of long-term protection built in to prevent re-growth for many years after treatment, to fast acting Sodium Hypochlorite which works in as little as 1 hour.
We use the most effective Biocide in the industry with 50% DDAC which is the active ingredient.
This method of cleaning has been proven to be effective on many different types of surfaces.
- Timber Decking, Fences & Sheds
- Slate & Tiles Roofs
- Concrete Patios and Paths
- Cobble-block type paving
- Painted Surfaces
