How to Find a Useful Soft Wash Surfactant

How to Find a Useful Soft Wash Surfactant

What Is Soft Washing? 

Soft Washing is a cleaning technique that uses low-pressure water to expel mold, mildew, moss, algae, and other types of dirt and debris from surfaces. Compared to pressure/power washing, soft washing involves a much lower water pressure. The water temperature is also lower in soft washing than in pressure washing.  

Soft washing is a great option for cleaning delicate surfaces that may be damaged by pressure washing, such as asphalt roofs, windows, outdoor furniture, screens, and much more.  

What to Look for in a Soft Wash Surfactant: 3 Important Features 

Here are three features that any great soft wash surfactant will possess:   

  • Safe for Soft Washing 

As is perhaps somewhat obvious, a soft wash surfactant should be safe for soft washing. Ideally, the cleaning solution will state on its label or in its description that it can be used for soft washing operations, which will give you confidence that it is appropriate for the soft washing process.  

  • Available in Bulk Sizes 

Any consumer looking for a soft wash surfactant is likely going to use it for industrial procedures, which means it will be needed in large quantities. Thus, finding a supplier that sells chemicals in bulk sizes is another important feature. This ensures that the detergent will not run out in the middle of a cleaning job. Buying in bulk can also help to save money over time.  

  • Sold by a Trusted Chemical Manufacturer 

Finally, purchasing soft wash surfactant from a trusted chemical manufacturer means you can rest assured that you will receive a high-quality, efficacious product.
