With the new Brodex Softwash Systems coming soon, it’s time you should learn more about the capabilities and benefits of Softwash Cleaning.
Softwashing is an exterior cleaning method that removes biofilms which may have built up over time. In contrast to a pressure washing system, a Softwash system uses a chemical solution to remove biofilms on exterior surfaces.
What is a Biofilm?
A biofilm consists of a group of microorganisms which often stick to exterior surfaces. They can form on living or non-living surfaces. Examples of Biofilm are; Algae, Lichen and various other types of Mould.
What is a Biocide?
A Biocide is a chemical substance or microorganism that kills or controls the growth of living organisms. Softwash solution is a highly concentrated biocide which is HSE approved.
Take a look at these before and after pictures of using a Softwash system.
A Softwash system removes biofilms and cleans surfaces for up to 5x longer than a standard pressure washer system. That’s not to say pressure washing is an ineffective however, the two methods combined produce the best results in exterior cleaning.
The New Brodex Softwash Machine will enable both these methods from the one van mounted system.
Benefits of Softwash
- No pressure washer required (although beneficial)
- Minimal Labour Effort
- Eliminates ladder requirements (If using water fed pole)
- Can be used on most surfaces
- Biodegradable solution keeps surfaces clean for a longer time
We will be releasing more information about the Brodex system soon, stay tuned!
