Soft Washing is a method of cleaning and restoring various substrates and surfaces, namely more delicate substrates on the exterior of a home or building.
Soft Washing originated in Florida back in the early 1980s. Initially, it was conceived as a new and more effective way of cleaning asphalt shingled roofs, however, since the early days, it has been further developed and is now a method of cleaning and restoring many other substrates and surfaces around a home or commercial property.

Soft Washing was developed to eradicate the damage which was being caused by Power Washing machinery and equipment when cleaning asphalt shingles. Power Washing Shingles caused the small limestone particles present in the roof shingles to dislodge and enter the guttering system, leading to premature failure of the roofing structure.
Eco-Friendly cleaning solutions began to be used to first break down and loosen the black and green algae, moss, lichen, and general dirt and grime, and subsequently, it eliminated the need for the potentially damaging use of High Pressure Water Cleaning methods which were in popular use at the time.
After news of these pioneering and highly effective methods spread across the United States and the rest of the world, it became the only method recommended to clean not only Asphalt Shingles, but many other substrates as well. Substrates include Vinyl and Aluminum Siding, Gutters & Downspouts, Bricks, Sandstone, Limestone, Wood and Decking materials, Some Concrete Areas, and many others.
Soft Washing is not only safer, but it is also much more effective at treating and killing off a range of micro-organisms that thrive in porous substrates such as those mentioned above.
