Soft Washing is a process of cleaning mould and dirt from building facades that relies on cleaning solutions doing the majority of the work instead of pressurised water.

It provides a softer clean and is ideal for delicate surfaces and work required at heights as it reduces the cost of mobilising access equipment with council permits and traffic management.

The process involves mixing together a ratio of soft cleaning solutions and injecting them into a low pressure water stream to propel the solution up to 13 meters high on a building façade.

After a suitable dwell time the solution is then rinsed off with clean water.

The result achieved is around 85% compared to high pressure cleaning, however the price point can be reduced by as much as a third.


Precautions we take into consideration

Although the soft was process is gentle on surfaces being cleaned, as there are cleaning solutions used in the process it is important to take steps to protect property and surrounding areas from any potential damage.

For example:

  • When cleaning roofs that are connected to water tanks the down pipes must be isolated to stop the cleaning solutions, dirt and mould from entering any water tanks
  • Doors and windows must be closed and rags placed under doors if they are not fitted with a weather strip to prevent water from entering the building
  • Plants are rinsed before and after treatment and cover with a light plastic if required.

Stages of growth Mould, Mildew, Moss & Lichen

It is good to understand the differences between mould, mildew, moss and lichen. Each stain requires a different cleaning process to achieve the best result.

Our team is equipped with everything they need to ensure the correct process is used on your building to get the best result for your budget.

The general appearance of mould is a green cover over the substrate, where as Mildew is a black cover. Mould is generally easier to remove than Mildew, while the appearance of moss is a build up of dirt with a soft green growth on top.

Lichen is a dry flower like growth which is commonly found on roofs.

These may require a stronger cleaning solution and possibly pressure cleaning to remove.
