Tennessee Soft Wash was recently featured in Cleaner Times, a national industry publication.

(From article) “Soft washing utilizes the proper detergents rather than high pressure to remove algae, dirt, insect webs, etc., from the house…We live in an area with heavy algae growth, so killing algae, moss, and lichen are priorities for us. Soft washing is the right way to do this.”Bryan Parris - Owner, Tennessee Soft Wash
What is Soft Washing
What is Soft Washing?
pressure washing your own housePressure washers are wonderful tools when used properly, but because they are an abrasive process (2500-4000 psi) used to blast dirt and algae off of the surface, they aren’t always safe for all surfaces. Improperly used pressure washers can damage vinyl siding, strip paint, tear window screens, and even break the seals in insulated glass.

Soft Washing is a detergent based process similar to what you would use on the inside of your home. We use a gentle pressure, less than 100 p.s.i. to gently clean dirt and effectively kill algae and live bacteria on your home…rather than just blasting it away. Please note that you should NEVER USE A PRESSURE WASHER TO CLEAN AN ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOF! Pressure washing will remove the fiberglass granules and void your shingle warranty.

Additionally, because the soft wash solution can be applied from a distance, we can usually apply the detergent from the ground or ladders, rather than renting expensive lifts or climbing on the roof.

(The water protects the plants from potential detergent overspray.) Sensitive plants will be covered. We will need to access your water supply and will expect to use 50-80 gallons of water on the job.

Responsible employees – All employees will be wearing branded shirts and working to present a good impression. Employees are screened and background checked, and our company is fully licensed and insured.

Professional equipment – equipment is truck mounted and includes both our soft wash system, utilizing quiet 12 volt pumps and a state-of-the-art chemical mixing system. This system saves on chemicals and therefore saves you money!

We also have commercial pressure washers and surface cleaners that do a GREAT job on concrete and some other flat surfaces. Sometimes we will actually use our soft wash mix to brighten the concrete even more after it is pressure washed! We’ll leave your driveway looking great! In most cases we can park at the street, but with homes that sit back on the property, we may need access to the driveway.

The dark stains on your roof shingles are caused by a form of algae called Gloeocapsa Magma and it is actually feeding on the materials used to manufacture your shingles, most notably the limestone fillers. Over time, the algae grows and eats away at the structure of the shingles causing them to age prematurely.

The solution is to kill the algae at the roots so that it doesn’t continue to spread. Our soft wash process is the ONLY cleaning process approved by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association.
