What is soft washing?
What is Soft Washing?
Soft washing is a cleaning method that uses a low pressure washing technique, along with a mixture
of algaecides, bleach, surfactants and water, to safely clean exterior surfaces of organic stains,
mildew and algae.
What is the difference between Soft Washing and Power Washing/Pressure Washing?
Although soft washing, power washing and pressure washing seem similar they all use different techniques, equipment, pressure and chemicals. Power washing and pressure washing use a much more powerful water pressure than soft washing and power washing is typically done with much hotter water than pressure washing. The Soft Washing method is combined with a biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solution to kill the mould, mildew, bacteria, algae, fungus, moss and more.
When should you use Soft Washing method?
Soft Washing should be used on surfaces that are notoriously hard to get clean with pressure or would be damaged if one were to use high pressure on them such as windows, roof shingles, screens, wood panelling, etc. Soft washing was originally designed for the purpose of cleaning algae off of roof shingles.
Why should you Soft Wash your roof?
Gloeocapsa Magma (algae) is common on roofs and often leaves signature black streaks all over
your shingles. This substance thrives in humidity and hot temperatures and spreads out, having a
destructive effect on your roof. It feeds off the moisture that certain types of shingles hold on to. While
the roof is effected, it begins to lose its ability to reflect UV rays and eventually rots the shingles. This
has been said to effect roofs severely and can take up to 10 years off the life of a roof. Soft washing
is the only way to effectively remove this algae without damaging the shingles and voiding any
warranty. The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends low-pressure bleach or detergent assisted washing as the preferred method for cleaning asphalt roofs in order to prevent damage to the shingles.
The Soft Wash technique eliminates all plant, fungal, and bacterial life and any dirt and grime from
the roof safely, returning it to its original colour with no risk of damage to the roofing materials.

Our softwashing patio service is far more effective than DIY. The cleansing system we use is designed to clean the surface, and penetrate into the porous sub-surface, sanitising in the cracks and gaps between the slabs. We can also replace sand between slabs with sterile kiln dried sand when this has been blown away or removed by high pressure washing, which further inhibits the regrowth of moss and weeds. High pressure washing often removes sand between slabs, leaving to loose blocks, and increasing the chance of weed growth.
Decking has become very popular and can look great in many gardens. However, if not properly maintained, decking becomes green, grimy, and very slick after the winter months. Weather conditions such as rain, snow, and frost can cause the colour of decking to deteriorate. We can restore it to the way it was when new at Master Soft Washing.

Our pressure washing and restoration service helps stop:
Due to the potential damage moss can cause to your roof, it is recommended to have the moss promptly removed.
The buildup of moss, algae, and fungi on older roofs can cause stress to the structure. When a tile breaks or a gap appears in the roof, it allows rainwater in, increasing condensation. Also, guttering can become clogged, allowing water to penetrate your walls, causing damp and mould to grow.
Roof cleaning benefits-
Maintaining your home’s exterior is an important part of protecting and maintaining the value of your investment.
Cleaning the roof prevents damage to the roof tiles from moss, mould, damp, algae and more.
Moss will not block the gutters which can lead to more problems.
A clean looking roof improves first impressions and the overall character of your property.
A clean, new looking roof will increase value of your property. Potential buyers will be able to see you have taken care of the property.
Sustaining a clean roof prevents further damage such as interior flooding, mould etc.
Save time and energy from cleaning fallen moss from your patio or footpath.
Moss growth is stunted, which will ultimately save the whole roof long term.
Domestic & Commercial Gutter Clearance
Blocked gutters can lead to damp problems and damaged brickwork potentially costing thousands of pounds as debris from trees and excessive moss growth can cause major problems.
The build up of muck washed from the roof by rain water, bird droppings, moss and lichen can grow at an alarming rate, even if your property has no trees in the vicinity, hence it is advisable to have your gutters cleared on an annual basis to prevent water damage to your property.
