A Low Pressure Revolution

Soft Washing in East Anglia can clean your house or workplace without damaging the building surface. Find out how below.

What is Soft Washing?

Soft Washing is a low pressure method for cleaning roof tiles and building exteriors. Originating in the US, Soft Washing is an alternative to pressure washing, using a proprietary chemical mix to remove dirt and microbial growth without any risk of removing the material’s surface coating. After application the chemical mix is gently rinsed off, leaving no damage and fantastic results.



Protects the natural surface coating of roof tiles and brick, the removal of which (also known as “scabbling”) can degrade the material through exposure to the elements, and require expensive repair and replacement.

Easy Access

Access is easily available through the use of Cherry Pickers, access platforms, and scaffolding. For smaller jobs we can use telescoping equipment and ladders for application and rinsing.


The Soft washing process is quick in both application and rinsing, causes no surface damage, and gives fantastic results, which make it an extremely cost-effective cleaning solution.

Soft Washing vs Pressure Washing

Soft Washing has a number of advantages over pressure washing. Pressure washing can damage surfaces, stripping the protective coating away from stone and roof tiles. It can wear down wood and strip painted surfaces. Pressure washing can break windows, or force water ingress into window frames, compromising their insulating capabilities.

Untrained users of pressure washing systems can injure themselves or others, as the high pressure water can cut through shoes as well as flesh. Finally, pressure washing is a time-consuming and costly job. As it uses a high pressure jet which can by its nature only clean a small area at a time, cleaning an entire wall or driveway of stubborn grime can take a long time, which vastly increases the amount of water used in the process.

Soft Washing in comparison is quicker, more cost effective, safer, and not damaging to the treatment surface. Contact us now for more details about soft washing in East Anglia!
