Soft washing is the less damaging alternative to power washing safely removing matter such as mildew, algae, lichen and fungus from hard surfaces. The process can also be used to clean moss and also makes use of telescopic lances to treat hard to reach places. We are pleased to offer a full range of cleaning products, including industry leader AlgoClear, and softwashing application equipment as well as useful advise and training.

What is softwashing?
Softwash cleaning is a method that uses a low pressure washing technique along with biocides such as AlgoClear which cleans areas that are covered in moss, algae or lichen. Softwashing utilises special cleaning solutions which break down the grime and dirt on the hard surfaces.
Furthermore these cleaning solutions do not strip protective coatings from the hard surfaces that you are cleaning so are perfect for more sensitive areas. At ProGreen we offer a range of biocides that are ideal for softwashing including the industry leader AlgoClear.
What surfaces can softwashing be used on?
Softwashing can be used on a range of hard surfaces as, due to the ingredients of these products, it is safe to use on even sensitive areas. It is ideal for use on roofs and tiles, timber decking, render, cladding, artificial lawns, patios, driveways and many more.
