Low pressure cleaning can clean and sanitise an exterior surface using a combination of water and soft washing chemicals.

These chemicals are eco-friendly and combined with our DOFF Super Heated Steam System, can produced powerful results for your exterior surfaces.

Because so much of the regular staining that we see on buildings and wall surfaces is in fact organic growth or carbon build up, softwashing chemical agents have been scientifically developed to best fight against this staining.

Removing not just the staining but the invisible spores as well, softwashing can produce lasting results without damaging the stonework/surfaces beneath. And because the chemical cleaning agents are eco-friendly, it is a more environmentally friendly way of cleaning that breaks down quickly in the soil and is then harmless to children and pets.

And all of this can be done without the need for high pressure washing.

Using DOFF Steam Cleaning as a basis for our softwashing, we can provide a powerful cleaning service using low pressure. This is both safer for your building stonework and creates a longer lasting result.

Softwashing can be used for:
