Soft Washing in Townsville

Today there is a wide range of building materials, textures and finishes available to choose from and many of these require a more delicate approach when it comes to cleaning. A popular cleaning method when it comes to the removal of mould, dirt and grime from exterior surfaces, such as roofs, walls, fences, paths and driveways, is pressure washing. Pressure washing can be an effective method in many situations, however, it can cause serious damage to certain materials and surfaces. For example, it can remove paint and chip tiles. This is where soft washing comes in.

Soft washing is a ‘low pressure,’ alternative cleaning method that involves the application of a specially formulated cleaning solution which is later washed off with a regular hose after having time to activate and effectively attack the grime and mould on your outdoor surfaces. Our soft wash solution is also effective in the removal of algae, droppings, tannins, dirt and lichen.

We recommend soft washing for the following areas:

  • Metal, tile and terracotta roof systems,
  • Canvas awnings and shade sails,
  • Timber weatherboard, siding and older fragile paint systems,
  • Modern architectural moulding and facades, and
  • Areas affected by mould and algae.

Our technicians are trained and experienced in soft washing and make sure to consider things like foliage protection, pets, water containment and run-off.
