Driveways and patios can become dull and dirty by daily wear and use from everyday life, your car wheels carry dust, dirt and oil which overtime can build into a thick layer on your driveway. Spores and weed seeds which travel in the wind are then able to find root and germinate in the cracks across your patio.
Our driveway & Patio cleaning services are vastly more effective at removing weeds and dirt than simple wedding and scrubbing. To ensure the cleaning process is effective, we normally pre-treat the paved area with a low pressure stone or timber wash to destroy fungal spores and break down the moss and dirt. This also has a weed killer added.
Soft washing is a new power washing technique that requires having a combination of bacteria killers and detergents to do the job the Right Way. The SoftWash uses low pressure and kills the bacteria without harming surfaces. Your patio will look like new! Green or black algae will completely vanish from your patio quickly - and the process takes even less time to than a pressure wash.
Overall, SoftWash patio washing also provides the very best outcome, quickest treatment, least damaging and longest lasting effects.
In many cases, it should be done on a yearly basis - often during the start of the spring season to remove autumn and winter foliage left unchecked. If a patio is in heavily shaded areas, or is often wet by storms or receives runoff, the patio may require more cleaning.
Soft washing is a low pressure cleaning process commonly used to safely treat and remove organic matter: mildew, bacteria, algae, fungus, moss, lichens in addition to dirt, grime and spiderwebs. Soft washing originated as a less abrasive option to power washing where high pressure can cause damages. And the cleaning effects of soft washing treatment last up to 6 x longer than those achieved through pressure washing alone.

You will need Soft Washing if the roof, the walls, the gutters , the driveway or hard scapes in your garden have any discoloration, streaking, staining, blotchy dark areas or just even general dullness and greying.
Because we have killed all the algae spores and bacteria that were previously thriving on your property it will not technically be re-growth, it will be new growth. But over time, even with the 100% kill ratio and the buffering against new growth…it will happen. In most cases, and depending on environmental influences and amount of sunlight, you could see new growth in as little as 3 years, or it could be well over 5 years before having to deal with any of this again.
Yes, it is. Because soft washing uses very low pressure, and limited amounts of water, soft washing is quite “ eco-friendly”. And when combined with our highly effective, 100% organic, water-based and biodegradable cleaning formulations, soft washing is far and away a home’s or business’s best solution for addressing the environmental assaults that assail them every day…all in an environmentally “eco-friendly” way!
