When soft washing a roof you need a safe and efficient way to apply the chemicals. Watch the video below in which Ben demonstrates the softwashing equipment he uses and explains the purpose of everything from the brush head, to a unique flow control valve (patent applied for), to non-drip couplings, to a "whip hose".
Quick tip: When soft washing a slate roof the brush helps to reduce the run-off of chemical into the gutters. It also agitates the biofilm, helping to increase penetration and speed up activation.
On a concrete or clay tiled roof the chemical quickly soaks into the porous surfaces and run off is not normally a problem. This is why Ben generally use a spray nozzle and not a brush to apply the chemical on porous roof surfaces.

We've been asked about the safest and most efficient and effective way to rinse Oxy Cleanze – and all softwash products – from treated surfaces. The concern was to minimise any possible impact on surfaces not being treated but that could receive run-off.

In this video we install the water tanks. They will be used for window cleaning and for small soft washing jobs.
We also organise a storage system for our water fed pole brushes, upgrade the van interior lighting and start work on construction an internal ladder rack.

It's a free resource for people wanting to learn about the soft washing industry, to expand an existing business, or build a new business.
Soft washing reduces, or even eliminates, the need to use high-pressure washing.
Instead, once the build up of algae, lichen, fungus, moss and mould – the root causes of properties looking "dirty" – has been treated, the natural "self-cleansing" of sun, rain and wind removes the surface residue through time.
By educating the cleaning trade and public about soft washing we are helping develop an industry that offers sustainable treatments to clean and maintain exterior hard surfaces.
