🌍 How Soft Washing Makes A Sustainable Difference For Your Home And The Environment 🌳

Safe soft washed house all clean

The world has been focusing on sustainability and so must our home maintenance routine. An eco-friendly example of this trend in action is evidenced in the rise of soft washing, an environment-friendly alternative to power washing. Not only does it leave your exteriors looking fantastic, but also contributes to environmental preservation. 🏡🍃

🌈The Beauty and Benefit of Soft Washing

Soft washing presents a green solution to maintaining your exteriors, rendering it an exciting topic in the domestic exterior cleaning industry. Its holistic approach focuses on sanitizing surfaces, annihilating bacterial growth, and inhibiting the regrowth of algae, fungus, and moss. 💪🌿

🔬 How Soft Washing Works: A Gentle Power

Soft washing utilizes gentle biodegradable chemicals, like a 50% DDAC biocide, which effectively eradicates harmful bacterial growth without damaging the material’s integrity or the surrounding environment. This fluid then penetrates the surface and kills the root system of the microbial intruders, leaving your home not only clean, but healthy and safe, too. 🏠💦

💧Saving Water With Soft Washing

Compared to its high-pressure counterparts, soft washing uses less water. This means there's less runoff into our natural streams and rivers, allowing for a lesser environmental footprint. 🌊👣

🛡 The Importance of Professional Handling

Handling the chemicals involved in soft washing not only requires professional training but also proper equipment. It is thus recommended to leave this task in the hands of certified professionals. 💼🧑‍🔬

🧪 Soft Washing and Sustainable Chemical Use

While soft washing does involve the use of chemicals, companies like SoftWash UK prioritize the use of eco-friendly alternatives. Notably, the SafeWash Super Concentrate Cleaner and Clever Wash Surfactant shows how cleaning and caring for the environment can come hand in hand. 🤝🌿

🧱 Protecting Building Materials Through Soft Washing

Aside from being environmentally beneficial, soft washing can also save your building materials from the abrasive impact of power washing. It prevents the unnecessary wear and tear of your structures, extending their lifespan and reducing the frequency of repairs and replacements. 🏠⏳

Conclusion: Embrace the Green Clean with Soft Washing 💚

Opting for soft washing is not just a practical solution for your household needs, but also an affirmation of your dedication to environmental preservation. By choosing soft washing, you're also preserving the health of your home and the planet. So, are you ready to embrace the green clean? 🌍🌱

Now you can say I've got an app for that!


Available NOW Click Here To Download

Softwashing calculator is an indispensable tool for juggling complicated chemical mixes. It helps reduce wastage and keeps operating costs down by giving accurate proportions

If you are having difficulty getting your head around the maths, trying to work out what percentage of softwash you need, how much chemical, surfactant and water to add, then this is the App for you.



The Soft Wash Calculator App allows you to work out your soft wash recipe by telling you exactly how much chemical, how much water and how much surfactant to add to get the desired soft wash recipe.
It doesn't stop there!.
- It can also remix your leftover softwash to a new stronger or weaker recipe.
- all controls in one place for see at a glance operation
- ease of input via pre-loaded dials. no more calculator style typing
- instantly responds to changes of complex combinations
- works in both Litres and US Gallons
- tested for Protan and Deutan colourblind users
- links to SoftwashingUK website

Take this scenario
You started with a 1% soft wash recipe of 50 gal (or litres)  for a deck clean and you’re left with 13 gallons.

You get a call from a prospective customer to clean their roof. Past experience tells you a 4% soft wash recipe is needed, but what about your leftover mix at 1%?.

Do you waste time and effort driving back to base to transfer into a standby tank?
You could consider the 13 gal as just water, top up the tank and start again.  
But that’s throwing away the value of the mix and raising your overhead.

Soft Wash Calculator App to the rescue.

You get to the new job and it requires 100 gal / litres.
Switch into remix mode , confirming the 13 gal already in the tank
Move the dials to your new recipe and the app immediately updates the different amounts to add in front of your eyes including the correct amount of extra surfactant.

You now have a 100 gal / litres tank of 4% soft wash recipe ready for your roof clean job!

Not forgetting you’ve saved money too, all without stress and uncertainty . Don’t underestimate what confident calmness has on your customer putting out referrals.

The same applies if you have a 4% recipe left in your tank and you need to dilute it down to 2%. Again the app will tell you how.

Softwashing calculator will also work for any chemical recipe. For instance you can use it for Sodium Hypochlorite, Bleach, Biocide , TFR traffic film remover and degreaser. Even the mathematically-challenged rocket scientist can top up their booster tanks to new fuel mixes after launch delays caused by changing weather conditions.

Using this app you will know exactly what chemical strength to put on any surface giving you the confidence and the knowledge of a professional soft washer and you’ll save money as well.

So if you have little knowledge of how to mix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you have little knowledge of how to remix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you want to save money when mixing a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.

This app is also backward compatible to devices running iOS7. We've done this so you can re-purpose an old iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 5  for what could be hazardous work environments. Just toss one in your cleaning van's toolkit.

Once you learn the methods and procedures of how to apply the soft wash to the different surfaces that need cleaning you’ll be unstoppable!

The app also has  a guide to what percentage for what surface. And if you are the lucky owner of a Clever Injector it will remind you the correct setting for the job.
However you should always consider and risk assess what soft wash recipe you need to clean the surface.

** A major iOS code-base change may require a re-purchase. The appiverse at the time will confirm our promise that we won't do so unless the necessity is apparent.
