Softwashing Large Buildings

Soft Washing Service

Seen as an alternative to pressure washing, which could damage some areas of your property (especially roofing tiles and many types of brickwork and cladding) softwashing (soft washing) has become a much more popular and safer way to clean your commercial property in recent years.

As the name suggests, the procedure is different from pressure washing in the sense that the water and softwash cleaning solution is applied at a lesser pressure, making it less likely to damage more fragile materials.

Softwashing - A highly effective render cleaning method

We use the latest soft washing equipment and practices in order to bring render, brickwork, cladding and roofing back to its original state.

Softwashing is particulary effective at removing organic soiling in the form of black, green and red algae that have colonised on a buildings facade.

Render is often made to look ugly and unloved by these algae colonisations. In the case of black algae they cause even relatively new render to look old and grey or with heavy colonisation black, giving the apearance of many years of built up soiling. The good news is the solution is available in the form of Adams & Hardcastles' softwashing service.

A recipe of softwashing solution is applied to the dirty rendered facade and allowed to dwell long enough to kill the spores of the offending algae then gently rinsed away taking the dead algae and the unsightly staining that it had created with it.

Issues with guttering as well as man-made pollutants can cause the exterior of your building to look old and tired and whereas some companies may opt for an extensive painting job to remedy this, regular soft washing is highly likely to save you and your company time and expense in comparison to applying a paint coating to the buildings facade.
