What is softwashing?

Image of a house with softwashed window frames Softwashing is a specialized method of cleaning and treating surfaces using low pressure and biodegradable solutions. It is a superior alternative to traditional pressure washing, which can sometimes damage surfaces. Softwash Platoon specializes in softwashing of residential and commercial properties, including roofs, siding, decks, fences and more. Our process involves applying a specially formulated cleaning solution to the surface, allowing it to penetrate and break down dirt, mold, and other contaminants. This is followed by a gentle rinse using low pressure, which effectively removes the grime without causing any damage to your surfaces. Our goal is to kill and remove the root cause of your mold and bacteria, ensuring a longer-lasting clean. Softwash Platoon is the go-to-choice for softwashing needs, providing a safe, effective, and environmentally-friendly solution for residential and commercial properties in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Finally, the surface is sealed with a protective coating to enhance the color and protect it from future damage.
