Frequently Asked Questions

Softwash Solution is a fully licensed, powerful “Professional Use Only” Biocide which gives a soft and gentle treatment that kills organic growth and disinfects without damaging surfaces or the environment. The high quality active ingredient of 50% DDAC content is the maximum strength government approved Biocide available on the market. It has the benefit of a low environmental footprint and biodegrades quickly. Once dry, the Solution is PH neutral and safe for your pets.
Softwash Solution Biocide works by puncturing the cell wall of the live biofilm, killing the organism down to the root. The organism dies and will eventually disappear leaving a surface that is fully disinfected and so will giving longevity of clean time and value for money.
Anecdotally, after treatment the surface can look noticeably worse, a darker red or green perhaps. This is the Solution doing it’s job. Once organism cells are punctured, they may release beta carotene and chlorophyll; essentially they bleed then die. However, over time the staining will begin to lighten and will eventually disappear.
The Softwash Solutions treatment, although not instant, gives proven longevity against power washing alone or aggressive, often unlicensed, chemical treatment. A maintenance program of treatment will help keep the surface permanently clean, providing a long term solution.
Cleaning time frames will depend on the type of biofilm and the biological load present on the surface being treated. For example, red staining: the algae known as Trentepohlia can take approximately 1 week and green algae/Mildew can disappear within 24 hours. Black moulds/fungi like Aspergillus Niger will take longer and, although the growth will be killed and the growth cycle halted, any residual staining may need further treatments/rinsing.
