Soft Washing although a relatively new term for house washing Brisbane and Australia, is not a new way of cleaning houses. First we look at what has built up and growing on the surface. Then we make up a detergent for the job at hand. Using LOW pressure instead of HIGH pressure cleaning methods we'll apply our solution. It's and algae killing, grime destroying formula that is left it to dwell for an appropriate amount of time. Following this, we rinse the surface with water, gently using LOW pressure again.
Pressure cleaning has it's place and is definitely part of our arsenal when it comes to cleaning certain surfaces. However that doesn't include the weatherboards, render or cladding of your home. It's just too likely to cause damage and water ingress. Get in touch today to discuss your next Soft Washing Project.

Domestic pressure cleaners are not made do much. They are low flow and high pressure. This results in either inconsistent lines across the work area or stripped paint and damaged render. They often can reach the work area (such as eaves and gutters) and definitely won't kill or prevent mould regrowth.
When we provide house washing we are not using high pressure. Our various equipment is all designed to provide high flow but at low pressure. We create a solution on site to target the grime, dirt and mould build up on your house and apply it at low pressure. Occasionally we may use soft bristled brushes to agitate certain areas before rinsing, once again at low pressure.
They won't get dirty, but they will get covered in solution and rinse water. Did you know though, that we will pull out our water fed pole system at the end of the job.

It leaves the view from your windows looking better than ever.
