Shedding Light on Softwashing
What is a Softwash?
A Softwash is a home cleaning service that involves spraying low-pressure water along with a cleaning solution onto your home – like giving your home a bath! Softwashing was developed in the 1990’s as an alternative to high-pressure cleaning services like pressure washing. Spotless began offering SoftWashing as one of its primary residential cleaning services within the last 10 years, and the service has since become a popular addition to our customers’ home service regimens, along with window cleaning. In fact, Softwashing is often paired with a Window Cleaning. Softwashing is not abrasive like pressure washing and can be safely used on a wider variety of surfaces from vinyl siding to brick to stucco.
How does Spotless perform Softwashing service?
Our standard Softwashing service includes all the sides of your home, your front porch, and your front sidewalk. Our technicians will spray these surfaces from a distance of 10 to 20 feet, avoiding the use of pressure on your home’s vertical surfaces. Treating one side of your home at a time, the technicians will apply water and cleaning solution so that every nook and cranny is touched. This mixture will take care of organic matter on the home and knock off any dirt as well. Once the solution has been applied, the technicians will wash each side of the home with water to rinse off the solution and leave your home looking fresh as new! Additionally, our technicians will perform a post-job rinse of your home’s landscaping. At the end of the service, our technicians will perform our standard walkthrough with you so that you can inspect the work.
