The Eco-Friendly Approach to Roof Cleaning: Understanding Soft Wash

When it comes to maintaining the aestheticsu and durability of your roof, cleanliness takes centre stage. Over time, dirt, algae, moss, and other stains can harm the overall appearance and functionality of your roof. The traditional methods of roof cleaning often involve high-pressure washing which, while effective, can damage roofing materials. Enter the innovative, eco-friendly method of roof cleaning—Soft Wash.

What Is Soft Wash Roof Cleaning?

Soft Wash, as taught in the Soft Wash Training Course, is a non-destructive cleaning method that utilizes low-pressure water and specialized solutions primarily composed of bleach and water to safely remove mildew, bacteria, algae and other organic stains from roofs and other building exteriors. It's a safer, eco-friendly, and efficient option for maintaining the cleanliness and longevity of your roof.

The Science Behind Soft Wash

When compared with high-pressure washing, Soft Wash does away with the use of excessive force and instead relies on the potency of cleaning solutions. This alternative to traditional pressure washing has gained significant attention for its efficient use of Soft Wash Chemicals and Soft Wash equipment.

Soft Wash cleaning solutions seep into the nooks and crannies of your roof, thoroughly cleaning away build-ups of mould, algae, and lichen. What's more? Your roof is given an extra layer of protection against future organic growths as these solutions have residual effects that keep such growths at bay for an extended period.

Benefits of Soft Wash Roof Cleaning

Long-lasting Results

With the tailored use of Soft Wash chemicals, this method of cleaning offers results that last longer than conventional pressure washing. The solution used not only cleans the surface but also penetrates deep within to root out potential growths of algae and moss.

Safety For Your Roof

While pressure washing can cause damage to shingles and other roof elements, soft washing maintains the structural integrity of your roof. This way, you can have both a clean, visually appealing roof, without unnecessary repair bills.

Eco-Friendly

Beyond its efficient cleaning potential, Soft Wash prides itself on being an environmentally conscious method of roof cleaning. The chemicals used in Soft Wash are biodegradable and eco-friendly, posing minimal risks to the environment.

Wide Range of Use

From asphalt and ceramic roofs to wooden and vinyl sidings, Soft Wash is versatile and can be used to clean various exterior surfaces.

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.

- 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.
