Softwash Solutions are exterior cleaning experts that offer a nationwide service through a base of trained applicators. We specialise in the safe and effective cleaning of all renders including K-Rend, Sto, Weber, Monocouche and Kilsaran as well as roofs, pebbledash, dry hash, concrete, tarmac, brick, decking and other surfaces.
Our Softwashing method avoids the overuse of harsh chemicals and high-pressure washing. The evidence has spoken: traditional methods of exterior cleaning are bad for the environment, damage surfaces and promote the regrowth of organisms. Softwash Solutions offer an alternative that is safer, longer-lasting and better for the planet.
Our methods have been engineered with the environment in mind. We strive to shrink the ‘footprint’ of the cleaning industry by lowering chemical use and water wastage, and practising the controlled and precise application of our solutions.
Softwash Solutions use professional grade biocides that are safe for professional use, softer on nature than harsher chemicals that have longer lasting results than industry alternatives, such as sodium hypochlorite (bleach).
All trained applicators in the Softwash Solutions Database are Biocide and COSHH trained. Our training process emphasises Good Work Practice and Health and Safety.
Before/After Biofilm Combination
Before/After Red Algae
Before/After Black Mould/Fungi
If an exterior surface begins to stain, discolour or host unsightly moss, the culprit is most likely a cocktail of atmospheric moulds, lichen, algae and fungi that rest and multiply on (and often in) a wide range of surfaces and building finishes. The resulting layer of symbiotic organisms, or “biofilm”, is not only ugly, it can seriously compromise the structural integrity of the building affected if left untreated. Deep-running roots will crumble porous render and heavy moss accumulation can dislodge roof tiles.
Until recently, the go-to solution for this problem has been high-pressure power washing. This approach gives almost instant visible results, but its effects are only short-term and superficial – they often do more harm than good. Jet washing does not kill organisms down to the root, leaving optimal conditions for potential regrowth. The process can also aid the growth of the intended target by blasting spores and contaminates into the air, which land and multiply on surrounding surfaces. Furthermore, overzealous power washing can damage the exteriors they intend to treat by blasting away render, flaking off paint and violating important protective layers.
Our Trained Applicators achieve consistent results on all modern finish renders, such as K-Rend, Sto, Monocouche and Weber. Likewise on pebbledash, dry dash, slate and concrete roof tiles, paving, tarmac, vinyl sidings, decking and fencing. Outdated, damaging, corrosive and dangerous unlicensed chemicals are replaced by safer, longer-lasting and fully-licensed biocide treatments.
Softwashing with Softwash Solution’s biocide targets and kills all mould, algae, fungi and moss down to the root, leaving a sanitised surface that deters any future spores from calling it home. Softwash Solutions remove the need for heavy-handed and potentially harmful power washing by utilizing simple chemistry. Whether cleaned with Safewash or our fully-licensed professional strength biocide, softwashed surfaces show longer-lasting results.
Our Biocide is government approved and biodegradable. The solution’s pH neutralizes once dry, significantly lowering its effect on the environment and ensuring the safety of pets and wild animals.
Our operatives are Biocide and COSHH trained, and imbued with the Softwash Solutions ethos, which values professionalism, high-quality customer service and extensive product knowledge. This revolutionary approach is finely tuned to guarantee the best results on every possible level — from the longest lasting results to the safest possible process.
We do not endorse the use of industrial strength bleach (sodium hypochlorite) labelled for other industries. Use of such products as cleaning agents is illegal and gives fleeting results.
Value for Money
Our prices are competitive and quotes are provided on a no-obligation basis. Domestic customers will never be required to pay a deposit.
Our process works to completely eradicate the biofilm at its source, guaranteeing relatively long-lasting results than quick fix methods, whilst inhibiting the chances of regrowth.
Dynamic and Comprehensive Service
We offer a broad range of services, both domestic and commercial.
Lower Environmental Footprint
While all measures are taken by our professional applicators to limit downstream negative effects on the environment, it is wise to employ a precautionary measure to keep people, pets and wildlife away from biocides until the surface treated is completely dry.
