What is Softwashing ?

The application of a chemical concentrate via a low pressure nozzle and pump.
The Chemical: 1) A hypochlorite based softwash biocide which at 5:1-10:1 dilution is classed by the EU, PCD and HSE as non corrosive or hazardous to people or the environment. 2) A Biocidal Wash (DDAC) fully biodegradable does not bio-accumulate Ph neutral, so safe for children and pets once treated surface is completely dry. 3) A organic Softwash which is biodegradable100% safe for the environment 100% ( Hypochlorite) Free 100% Biocide Free Non hazardous Non toxic.
Types of Organic growth that can be removed by Softwashing: 1) Algae - is a green film or powdery layer found on paving stones,stonework and render. 2) Lichen - grows on timber structures and paving stones, roofs. The colour can vary from orange to silver/white. 3) Moss - is found on all types of surfaces and can be very dense tufts of growths.

Roof Moss & Lichens: Roofs after a few years will develop small patches moss and lichen growth which are not usually a problem however if the moss is allowed to propagate then it can cause problems. Moss absorbs large amount of water like a sponge, keeping your roof constantly wet. This over time will degrade the roof tile. Moss also slows down the rain run off into the gutters. Moss also breaks off in chunks falling into the valleys, gutters with the potential to block drains or the water can come up over the upstand into the underside of the tile rotting the roof structure. It is the birds however pecking the moss that then falls to the ground level or over the conservatory roof that is the biggest complaint by customers.

How Does it Work?
Softwash Biocde: The surfactant in the solution promotes the adhesion of the softwash to the substrate which allows for a prolonged dwell time thus it is extremely effective at low concentration which is safe for people, materials and the environment. It is the oxidization that damages the outer membrane of microbial cells allowing them to be broken up and lifted away from the surface. Biocide: The products works by entering the microorganism’s cell membrane to damage and inhibit the cell’s genetic activity which destroys its integrity. Organic Softwash: The product will enter the cell wall of the surface contaminant killing it.

How Long does softwash take to clean?

The specialised softwash biocide works extremely rapidly to give remarkable results sometime in only 30-60 minutes – often much less on smooth, non- porous surfaces and does not bio-accumulate also becomes inactive within 30-60 minutes of application where it breaks down when in contact with organic materials and quickly dissipates. Softwash (DDAC) will kill Green Algae within minutes by cell wall puncture and should disappear over a few weeks as with Red Algae - Black Fungi 4 weeks to 6 weeks to shed the dead biofilm. This gives the superficial stains time to recede, leaving the marks if any requiring attention more identifiable. Organic softwash works similar to softwash ddac.

Pebble Dash Cleaning the results that can

be achieved.

Softwash Application
The application to the substrate is by a low pressure pump with the chemical concentrate mixed to the correct solution for the works task. The pressure applied for the spray application is no more than a garden hose around 3.5bar or it can also be applied with a soft bristle brush system. The substrate dictates the application method.
How much does rending cleaning cost?
The cost for cleaning rendered walls varies it will depend on the size, is it pebble dash or render and the chemical system that is used. A guide price starts from around £120 per wall to £425 for the same wall dependent of the chemical system used.
Pressure Washing is not recommended to clean Pebble Dash walls as the force of the jet will dislodge the pebble dash in addition it may score a smooth render finish such as K-Rend. Softwashing is the preferred method for the cleaning of Pebble Dash and Smooth Renders this non- invasive system uses chemicals to remove the staining rather than force.
