By Mark Cave December 23, 2023

The Rising Trend of Soft Wash Driveway Cleaning

Driveway cleaning might seem a mundane task, but it is a crucial part of home maintenance. With the current environmental concerns, the driveway cleaning methods have evolved, and one such trend is soft wash driveway cleaning.

What is Soft Wash Cleaning?

Unlike pressure washing, soft washing uses low-pressure water combined with specialized cleaning solutions to gently remove grime, moss, algae, mildew, and other contaminants. To know more about this method, you can view this detailed article on What Is Soft Washing?

Benefits of Soft Wash Driveway Cleaning

  • Preservation of Surface: Soft washing does not cause damage to the surface of the driveway, unlike high-pressure methods.
  • Effective Cleaning: The specialized cleaning solutions used help to kill off spores and roots of weeds and moss, ensuring a longer-lasting clean driveway.
  • Eco-friendly: The detergents used in soft washing are eco-friendly and biodegradable, causing no harm to the environment.

Driveway Cleaning Chemicals and Equipment

An essential element of a successful soft wash cleaning process is the use of proper chemicals and equipment. A variety of soft wash chemicals are available on the market, each designed for a specific type of cleaning. For instance, you might need different products for moss removal, oil stains, or general dirt and grime. Understanding and choosing the right Soft Wash Chemicals can dramatically improve your results.

Additionally, the right cleaning equipment is crucial. Upgraded and diverse Soft Washing Equipment helps in efficiently cleaning and maintaining the aesthetics of your driveway.

Right Approach to Soft Wash Driveway Cleaning

Soft washing your driveway isn't simply a matter of spraying detergent and rinsing it off. It's a process that requires far more precision and understanding than you might think. Here are the steps to perform a comprehensive soft wash cleaning on your driveway:

Preparation

Ensure your driveway is free from any hindrance like plants, vehicles, and loose dirt, which may affect the cleaning process.

Apply Detergent

Then, with the help of right equipment and chosen detergents, gently cover the driveway with cleaning solution. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, allowing it to kill all the moss, algae or mildew.

Time for Gentle Rinse

After the cleaning solution has done its job, gently, rinse the driveway from one end to the other ensuring no detergent is left.

Remember, a clean driveway not only enhances the curb appeal of your home but also increases its value and prevents slip and fall accidents. So, don’t underestimate the power of a clean driveway!

Conclusion

Soft wash driveway cleaning is a gentle yet effective way to maintain and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. By choosing the appropriate cleaning products and equipment, and following correct procedures, you will be able to keep your driveway in pristine condition year-round.

Soft Wash Calculator App

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.
