There are softwash equipment supply companies who try to sell newcomers to softwashing many thousands of pounds worth of softwashing equipment – before they've even got their first softwash contract ...

But in our experience, it's best to first invest only in the minimum amount of softwashing equipment you actually need to get going and earning good money.

Then, when you have some experience under your belt, and have a basic understanding of the softwashing business, it will be time to carefully think about what softwash market you want to aim for to expand your business.

What softwashing market do you want to focus on?

  • Domestic houses?
  • Commercial properties?
  • Renders?
  • Timber structures, eg decking, fences, sheds?
  • Paths & patios?
  • Roofs?
  • Tarmac drives
  • Tennis courts
  • Play areas?
  • Boats?

Another important question to get clear on is this: "Will your softwashing business be full-time or an add-on to another business (eg gardening, painting, roofing)?"

When you know exactly what you want from your business you can make a plan of how you intend to achieve that. And asking yourself clear, focused questions is the way to do that.

Then, when you have some experience under your belt, you can look to expand your business. Then, and only then, is the time to invest wisely in upgrading your softwash equipment.
