We contacted CCWC services because we had just got a new 25,000sqft Warehouse that needed cleaning. The new Warehouse consisted of 3 large warehouses knocked into 1 large Warehouse. Each Warehouse had white panels all the way around that had collected so much dust, grease & dirt. I contacted CCWC and I heard back from them the same day and we arranged a meeting. I was met at the Warehouse by a lovely gentleman who was super helpful and explained in details what they would do to achieve best results. When the quote was agreed a booking was made to have a team on sight to have the work done. The two gentlemen who came on sight to do the work were again so helpful, so kind and very good working guys. They managed to finish the job in a couple of days and the outcome was stunning. I was very shocked to see the huge difference the clean had made. The panels come up like new and all the walls/panels were dust, grease and dirt free. So I was a happy lady. The whole round service from the company was 10/10 from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company for any industrial cleaning like I had. I have certainly kept this team in my "save" file as I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again. Thank you for all your hard work. Karen

FAQ's

What is softwashing?

Soft washing is a cleaning method that uses a low pressure with high volume spraying technique. By using sodium hypochlorite and a blend of algaecides, surfactants and water, to safely clean exterior surfaces of organic stains, mildew and algae.

Softwashing is a gentle yet highly effective cleaning method that CCWC Services employs, particularly suitable for delicate surfaces and buildings where traditional high-pressure washing might cause damage. Here’s how it works:

  1. Low-Pressure Application: Softwashing uses a low-pressure cleaning system, much gentler than standard high-pressure washing. This makes it ideal for cleaning softer surfaces like render, wood, and delicate historic building exteriors.
  2. Specialized Cleaning Solutions: It involves applying eco-friendly, biodegradable cleaning solutions that effectively break down dirt, algae, mold, and other organic stains without the need for high pressure.
  3. Longer-Lasting Results: The cleaning agents used in softwashing not only clean surfaces but also inhibit future growth of algae and mildew, leading to results that last longer than traditional pressure washing.
  4. Safe and Effective: This method is safe for a variety of surfaces and is particularly recommended for historical buildings, including Grade II listed structures, where preserving the integrity of the building materials is crucial.
  5. Environmentally Friendly: Softwashing consumes less water than traditional methods and, with its biodegradable chemicals, is an environmentally responsible choice.

At CCWC Services, softwashing is part of our commitment to offering versatile, effective, and safe cleaning solutions for every need, ensuring your property not only looks its best but is treated with the utmost care.

What are the benefits of softwashing?

The obvious answer is aesthetics. You want your building to look beautiful, and one way to do that is soft washing. Bacteria and algae can grow over time on your building and roof. Soft washing, applying an eco-friendly biodegradable treatment, will ensure these organisms are completely killed. This way those ugly stains will be properly removed, leaving your building restored to its former glory.

Softwashing offers several compelling benefits, making it a preferred choice for various cleaning needs, especially at CCWC Services where we prioritize both effectiveness and care for surfaces:

  1. Gentle on Surfaces: Unlike high-pressure washing, softwashing uses low pressure, which is gentle on delicate surfaces. This makes it ideal for historic buildings, render, stucco, roof tiles, and wood, reducing the risk of damage.
  2. Effective Cleaning: Softwashing effectively removes dirt, algae, mold, mildew, and other organic substances. The cleaning agents penetrate and kill these organisms at their roots, ensuring a deeper and more lasting clean than high-pressure washing.
  3. Longer Lasting Results: Since it addresses the root cause of the growth of molds and algae, softwashing keeps surfaces cleaner for a longer period, reducing the frequency of cleaning required.
  4. Eco-Friendly: The cleaning solutions used in softwashing are typically biodegradable, making this method more environmentally friendly compared to traditional cleaning methods that may use harsher chemicals.
  5. Water Efficiency: Softwashing uses less water compared to high-pressure washing, making it a more sustainable choice for large-scale cleaning projects.
  6. Safety and Compliance: It is a safe method for both the cleaning technicians and the building, adhering to stringent health and safety standards.
  7. Versatility: Softwashing can be used on a variety of surfaces and buildings, including residential properties, commercial buildings, and especially sensitive historical structures.

By opting for CCWC Services’ softwashing solutions, clients not only get a superior, longer-lasting clean but also contribute to the preservation of their property’s integrity and the environment. It’s a smart choice for a thorough and responsible clean.

How often should I softwash my home or business ?

The obvious answer is when its dirty, however if a yearly plan is in place the cost of saving on chemicals is passed on to the owner. Using less chemicals is better for the environment and also on your pocket.

The frequency of softwashing your home or business depends on various factors, including the local environment, type of surface, and the level of exposure to dirt and organic growth. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Environmental Factors: If your property is in an area with high humidity, frequent rain, or near a lot of vegetation, you may need to softwash more often, as these conditions promote the growth of mold, mildew, and algae.
  2. Location: Properties in urban or industrial areas may accumulate dirt and pollutants faster and may benefit from more frequent cleaning.
  3. Type of Surface: Some surfaces, like rendered walls or certain types of siding, may require more frequent cleaning due to their susceptibility to staining and organic growth.
  4. Aesthetic Considerations: The appearance of your property is also a key factor. If maintaining a pristine look is important for your business or personal preference, you might choose to clean more often.
  5. Previous Cleaning Schedule: How long it’s been since your last cleaning can also dictate the frequency. Regular cleaning can reduce the need for more intensive treatments in the future.

As a general rule, many properties benefit from a softwash cleaning once every 1-2 years. However, some might need it more frequently, perhaps every 6-12 months, especially in demanding environmental conditions.

Remember, regular maintenance not only keeps your property looking its best but can also extend the life of the materials. For a tailored recommendation based on your specific needs and local conditions, consulting with professionals like CCWC Services is advisable. Our expertise ensures that your property receives the right care at the right intervals.

What are softwashing techniques?

Soft washing involves specific techniques that differentiate it from traditional pressure washing. These techniques are designed to clean surfaces effectively without causing damage, especially on softer or more delicate surfaces. Here’s an overview of the key soft washing techniques:

  1. Low-Pressure Application: Unlike high-pressure washing, soft washing uses a low-pressure nozzle attached to a cleaning solution hose. This low pressure is gentle enough to prevent damage to surfaces like siding, shingles, or painted areas.
  2. Specialized Cleaning Solutions: The primary cleaning power in soft washing comes from the use of specialized cleaning solutions. These solutions are typically biodegradable and are designed to effectively break down dirt, algae, mold, and mildew.
  3. Dwelling Time: After the cleaning solution is applied, it’s left to ‘dwell’ on the surface for a period. This allows the solution to penetrate and break down the dirt and organic growth. The length of the dwelling time varies depending on the type of surface and the degree of cleaning required.
  4. Gentle Rinse: Once the solution has done its job, the surface is gently rinsed off with low-pressure water. This removes the cleaning solution along with the loosened dirt and organisms.
  5. Post-Cleaning Inspection: After rinsing, a thorough inspection is often conducted to ensure that the cleaning has been effective and that no areas have been missed.
  6. Safety Measures: Safety is a key aspect of soft washing, especially when dealing with chemical solutions. Proper safety gear, including gloves, goggles, and protective clothing, is used during the process.
  7. Environmentally Considerate Practices: Ideally, soft washing involves environmentally friendly practices, such as using eco-friendly cleaning solutions and methods to prevent runoff that could harm plants or enter waterways.

These techniques make soft washing a safe and effective cleaning method for a variety of surfaces, including residential exteriors, roofs, decks, patios, and even historical buildings. Companies like CCWC Services, which specialize in soft washing, ensure these techniques are applied professionally to achieve the best results while preserving the integrity of your property.

How long does soft washing last?

The longevity of the results from softwashing can vary depending on several factors, but generally, softwashing provides longer-lasting clean than traditional pressure washing. Here’s what influences the duration of its effectiveness:

  1. Type of Surface: Different materials react differently to cleaning. Porous surfaces like concrete or brick may retain the effects of softwashing longer compared to non-porous surfaces.
  2. Environmental Conditions: The local environment plays a significant role. Areas with high humidity, heavy rainfall, or dense vegetation may see faster regrowth of algae, mold, or mildew, reducing the time between necessary cleanings.
  3. Quality of Cleaning Solutions: The effectiveness of the biocides and cleaning agents used in softwashing significantly impacts how long the clean lasts. High-quality, professional-grade solutions tend to offer longer protection against regrowth.
  4. Technique Used: Proper application of softwashing techniques also matters. Ensuring adequate dwelling time for the cleaning solution and thorough rinsing can extend the duration of cleanliness.
  5. Pre-existing Condition of the Surface: If the surface had a significant amount of growth or staining prior to cleaning, it might be more susceptible to quicker recurrence.

On average, the effects of a professional softwashing treatment can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. However, it’s not uncommon to see properties remain clean for longer, especially in less demanding environmental conditions or with regular maintenance.

Regular inspections and follow-up treatments can help maintain the cleanliness and appearance of the property over time. Companies like CCWC Services can provide expert advice and services to ensure your property remains clean and well-maintained for as long as possible.

What is the best way to softwash a building?

Softwashing a building effectively requires a combination of the right equipment, cleaning solutions, and techniques. Here’s a step-by-step guide to the best way to softwash a building, whether you’re a professional or considering a DIY approach:

  1. Assessment and Planning:
    • Start by assessing the building’s exterior to identify the type of surface material and any specific areas of concern, like heavy staining or organic growth.
    • Plan the cleaning process, considering the size of the building, accessibility, and any environmental precautions that need to be taken.
  2. Safety Precautions:
    • Ensure all safety measures are in place, especially if working at height.
    • Protect nearby plants, landscaping, and outdoor fixtures from cleaning solutions.
  3. Prepare the Cleaning Solution:
    • Mix a biodegradable, environmentally-friendly cleaning solution. The concentration may vary depending on the level of cleaning required and the surface sensitivity.
  4. Apply the Cleaning Solution:
    • Using a low-pressure sprayer, apply the cleaning solution to the building’s exterior. Start from the bottom and work your way up to avoid streaking.
    • Ensure the solution is evenly distributed across the surface.
  5. Allow Dwelling Time:
    • Let the solution sit on the surface for a period (usually 10-20 minutes), allowing it to break down dirt, mold, algae, and other organic material. The dwelling time might vary depending on the product and the severity of the dirt.
  6. Rinse Thoroughly:
    • Rinse the building with clean, low-pressure water, starting from the top and moving downwards.
    • Ensure all the cleaning solution and loosened dirt are completely washed off.
  7. Inspect and Touch-up:
    • After rinsing, inspect the building for any missed spots or areas that might need a second application.
    • Touch-up as necessary to ensure a uniform clean.
  8. Post-Cleaning Care:
    • After the cleaning, take care of any runoff or residue that might have settled on the surrounding areas.
    • Reassess the building after it dries for any areas that might need additional attention.

For best results, especially for large or complex buildings, it’s recommended to hire professional services like CCWC Services. Professionals have the experience, equipment, and expertise to ensure that the softwashing is done safely, effectively, and with minimal risk to the building and its surroundings. They can also advise on maintenance plans to keep the building clean over time.

What does softwashing remove?

Softwashing is a highly effective cleaning method that removes a variety of substances from exterior surfaces. Here’s what softwashing typically removes:

  1. Organic Growth:
    • Mold: Thriving in damp, shaded areas, mold can cause discoloration and health issues.
    • Mildew: Often appearing as black or brown spots, mildew can degrade and stain surfaces.
    • Algae: Green or black algae can create slippery, unsightly patches, especially on roofs and siding.
    • Moss: Moss growth can lead to moisture damage and erosion of surfaces over time.
  2. Environmental Pollutants:
    • Dirt and Dust: Accumulated grime from the environment can dull and damage surfaces.
    • Pollution Residues: Soot, smog, and other pollutants from urban environments can adhere to surfaces, causing staining and decay.
    • Bird Droppings: These can be acidic and damaging to building materials if not removed.
  3. Stains and Discolorations:
    • Water Stains: Often caused by mineral deposits left after water evaporates.
    • Rust Stains: Caused by metal fixtures or furniture, rust can be challenging to remove.
  4. Biological Matter:
    • Insect Nests and Cobwebs: Softwashing can effectively clear away remnants of insect activity.
    • Pollen: Can create a thin film over surfaces and contribute to allergens.

Softwashing not only cleans these substances effectively but also treats the surfaces in a way that can inhibit future growth and accumulation. It’s particularly beneficial for maintaining the aesthetic and structural integrity of a variety of surfaces, including roofs, siding, decks, and even historical structures. By choosing a professional service like CCWC Services for softwashing, you ensure a thorough clean that extends beyond just surface appearance, promoting the longevity and health of your property.
