Information About Soft Washing in Florence

Soft washing is a method of cleaning and restoring various substrates and surfaces, especially more delicate substrates on a home or building’s exterior.

Soft washing got its start in the early 1980s in Florida. Originally conceived as a modern and more efficient method of cleaning asphalt shingled roofs, it has since been further refined and is now a method of cleaning and restoring a wide range of substrates and surfaces around a home or commercial property.You may find more information at soft washing in Florence.

When cleaning asphalt shingles, Soft Washing was created to remove the harm caused by Power Washing machinery and equipment. Power washing shingles caused small limestone particles in the roof shingles to dislodge and penetrate the guttering system, causing the roofing framework to collapse prematurely.

Eco-friendly cleaning solutions were first used to break down and loosen the black and green algae, moss, lichen, and general dirt and grime, and then it was no longer appropriate to use the potentially dangerous High Pressure Water Cleaning methods that were common at the time.

After word of these ground-breaking and highly successful methods spread around the country and around the world, it became the only tool recommended for cleaning not only Asphalt Shingles, but also a number of other substrates. Vinyl and aluminium siding, gutters and downspouts, bricks, sandstone, limestone, wood and decking materials, some concrete areas, and many others are examples of substrates.

Soft washing is not only cleaner, but it is also much more efficient at handling and destroying a number of microorganisms that live in porous substrates like those mentioned above.

Microorganisms such as moss, algae, mould, and mildew are effectively killed off deep in the poros of the material when a specialty blend of cleaning agents is applied to the substate being cleaned and sufficient dwell time is provided. This is something that Power Washing can’t do.
