Soft washing is a cleaning process that uses chemical resistant pumps to apply sodium hypochlorite at low pressure to clean organic stains. Soft washing is the best method for removing moss, lichen, algae, mold, and mildew for soft surfaces such as rooftops, siding, stucco, and dryvit. Soft washing is a cleaning method using low pressure and specialized solutions (typically bleach, water, and sometimes a surfactant) to safely remove mildew, bacteria, algae and other organic stains from roofs and other building exteriors. It is so named to differentiate the method from power washing. A soft wash incorporates special low-pressure nozzles on the end of a pressure washing gun or wand. That's combined with a biodegradable chemical that removes the biological elements (mold, algae, pollen, dirt, moss) and other stains without damaging surfaces on your home or killing your plants. Yes. Like pressure cleaning, though, if you do not use the system properly, you may cause damage. High chemical concentrates can kill plant life and damage certain surfaces. Roof cleaning contractors who use sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach) mix it in high concentrations with other chemicals such as trisodium phosphate, also known as TSP. They spray it on the roof and wait for it to dry and then re-apply it several times as needed.

Finally, some soft washing techniques also use hot water, but not all pressure washers can handle hot water.
