What Is Soft Washing?

Xtreme Clean Softwash of Prior Lake Minnesota Softwashing

Soft Washing

Soft washing utilizes SoftWash Systems  superior low-pressure technology and 100% biodegradable cleaning solutions for your exterior cleaning needs. 

The use of our professional grade, low-pressure applications maximizes the treatment value and is manufacturer prescribed by ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association) and GAF (North America's Largest Roofing Manufacturer) for cleaning asphalt shingle roofs. 

Soft washing is a technique that treats the infection of the stain and lets the cleaning solutions sanitize, doing 100% of the work, killing all mildew, algae, moss and lichens at the root, not just the surface, creating a longer lasting clean.  No damaging pressure, harsh chemicals or heat are needed and uses 1/3 the water than pressure washing! 

Soft washing is better for your home, family and the environment!

Why You Should NOT Pressure Wash

We want to sanitize the mildew, algae and lichens at the root. Pressure washing only blasts the top layer of the surface, spreading the algae spores and penetrating them more deeply into the surface. This creates more of a problem in the future and will make the bacteria grow back faster!   

Pressure Washing:

  • High, Damaging, Pressure Used (1,500+ PSI) 
    • Soft washing uses 80 PSI 
  • Pressure Applied Inches from the Surface 
    • Greater Chance for Damage 
  • Pressure Washing Should Never be Used on Roofs
    • Can Potentially Void Roof Warranty 
  • Blasts Only the Surface of the Stain
    • Root of Bacteria is Left to Grow Back Faster
