Does Soft Washing Affect the Environment?
The technique of 'soft washing' is rising in popularity as an effective alternative to power washing. This relatively new form of cleaning uses lower water pressure and specialized cleaning solutions to achieve a lasting clean. Many people are intrigued by soft washing because it is less damaging for the exterior surface and due to its eco-friendly cleaning potential.
The Overlooked Environmental Drawback of Power washing
An often-overlooked drawback of power washing is the amount of water used. Standard pressure washers can use over 400 gallons of water in a single hour. By comparison, an entire soft washing project (which generally takes multiple hours) will use less than 100 gallons for the entire project.
Therefore, soft washing is at least four times as water efficient as pressure washing, and the lower consumption of water will reduce costs and minimize environmental impact.
Are Soft-Washing Cleaning Solutions Harmful to the Environment?
Soft washing has a very minimal impact on the environment. With its reduced water usage, there is less strain on water reserves. Beyond this, the solutions used are often water-based, non-hazardous, biodegradable, and will break down into water or carbon within 20 days.
Homeowners looking for an environmentally friendly option have quickly adopted soft washing as part of their cleaning process.
Why Homeowners Trust Soft-Washing
Even though soft washing uses less pressure than a conventional power washer, it can still penetrate deep into surfaces and remove mold growths, bacteria, and stains. Instead of using a pressurized spray which can cause damage to hard surfaces, soft washing uses low water pressure to clean without causing any damage.
The secret to it all is in the technique and cleaning solutions used.
