Soft Washing is Here
INtroducing "Soft Washing". The latest In Eco Cleaning!
Just added to the Window Viper arsenal of eco friendly cleaning services is a state of the art soft wash system. What it is and how it works are two questions I will answer in this latest blog post. How I came upon discovering this method was kind of funny after one day posting a before and after photo of some siding washing I recently did in Chemainus BC.
I shared this to a Facebook group, thinking how great it was that I could wash this wall in 45 minutes with a water fed pole. The response I got was an un expected barrage of "Soft wash would only take ten minutes" comments, and within 24 hrs I had been convinced to try it out myself.
How a soft wash system works is quite simple and very effective, but you need to invest some money in it to get yourself going. I searched for the best and most eco friendly water additives and came across a Vancouver based company that sells the product and also a professional / portable soft wash system. The active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide instead of bleach or other sulphates and chemical compounds. The mixture is pre mixed in a reservoir and then pumped at low pressure onto the roof or whatever it is you're cleaning. The you wait for five or ten minutes to let it do it's thing and then, with gentle pressure, rinse. The amazing thing is how fast and safely a roof can be restored to pristine condition.
No more waiting for weeks to see the results of a traditional roof clean using rakes and powdered moss killers. With this new system the results are instant and gratifying.
