washing. We offer a vast array of exterior cleaning services for your home or business.

Five Benefits of Soft Washing Your Home

Algae, Mold, and Mildew Are Eliminated at a Molecular Level

Molds, algae, and mildew can be sticky on the surface. Pressure washing, even though it uses high pressure, may sometimes leave behind traces of these contaminants. But soft washing deals with these problems on a molecular level. The cleaning detergents we use include safe concentrations of sodium hypochlorite (bleach) that effectively remove molds, algae, and mildew.

Requires Less Water

High-pressure washing requires more water, which means a higher water bill. Soft washing is cheaper and reduces water damage and overflow because the cleaning process relies much less on the amount of sprayed water than the cleaning solutions used with it.


At Riptide Softwash, we use biodegradable cleaning solutions that are not harmful to the environment and your family. Safety and well-being are our top priorities when we clean the surfaces of your home. You can rest assured that our equipment and detergents have no detrimental consequences to you or your household

Extend the Life of Your Home

The elements will weather your home down over time. Regularly soft washing your home will eliminate algae, mildew, and other naturally occurring hazards like dead insects and animal droppings to beautify your home and extend its lifespan.

Boost Curb Appeal

Besides a price tag that fits, prospective buyers generally look for beautiful, well-maintained, and clean-looking homes. Ensuring a home’s curb appeal is high makes any property easy to sell. Regular maintenance of your home’s surfaces through frequent soft washing will boost its appeal.

Soft washing your home also increases your property’s lifespan and market value and avoids the damage that high-pressure washing can potentially cause.

Pressure washing should not be used for roof cleaning. If used on an asphalt shingle roof, it could void your manufacturer’s roof warranty. 

Caution! “High-pressure washing systems are likely to damage asphalt roofing and should not be used on asphalt roofing for removing algae or for any other purpose.” – ARMA (Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association)
