Cleaning exterior windows may seem like an easy job–just get some window cleaning solution and hose it down. While regular washes may keep your windows clean for a short period of time, it leaves your windows vulnerable to certain hazards. Dirty windows may house mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and other contaminants that may damage your windows in the long run.
If you’re looking to avoid multiple exterior window cleaning sessions and have amazing-looking windows, you need to consider soft washing.
How Soft Washing Windows Works
Soft washing windows is not a complicated process but requires professional gear and chemical cleaners for maximum effectiveness. Here’s a breakdown of what is used in every soft wash window cleaning:
- Low-Pressure Washing Equipment. Unlike traditional pressure washing, soft washing windows uses low pressure that keeps windows totally safe.
- Cleaning compound. Soft washing features additional solutions that are used to remove and prevent contaminant growth on exterior surfaces.
The pressurized water loosens and cleans dust, dirt, grime, and cobwebs from windows and window frames. At the same time, the cleaning solution prevents future contaminants from taking root.
Are Window Soft Washing Chemicals Safe?
Yes, the chemicals used by the vast majority of soft wash providers are 100% safe. The soft wash compounds were designed to be safe as they are sprayed on windows, which are openings into a home or business. Most soft wash cleaning compounds are detergent-based, commonly comprised of chemicals used everyday (bleach, etc).
Most soft wash service providers state their chemicals are safe, but if you have any concerns be sure to ask before your window cleaning begins.
What are the Benefits of Soft Washing Windows?
Soft washing is a strictly superior version of standard window cleaning. There are several benefits aside from removing and preventing contaminants including:
- Lasts 4-6x longer than standard washing on average.
- Soft washing only requires 1 job to wash and sanitize
- Soft washing services can be modified to include other forms of exterior cleaning–ie soft wash service providers can clean more than just windows (exterior surfaces, walkways, driveways, fences, patios, decks, etc).
Lasting up to 6 times as long as a standard window wash is enough on its own to consider it the next time you need a professional window cleaning. Removing and preventing contaminants is a huge bonus that will not only keep your windows clean but may also prevent damage to frames and siding (due to untreated mold, etc).
Are There Different Types of Window Soft Washing?
Soft washing windows is a straightforward process–but it can be modified for a specific window or building need. Pressure can be adjusted to handle delicate glass to provide a gentle wash. Different types of cleaning solutions are available for specific contaminant situations. Options for scale are available for larger buildings which may not require the same type of cleaning for every area.
