What Chemicals are Used to Soft Wash Flat Roofs?

A great question, and often asked by people who are considering what chemicals are used to soft wash flat roofs.

When considering cleaning a flat roof surface, switch your mindset from cleaning to treating. Treating a flat roof with a soft wash solution will kill off all organic matter by completely sanitising the surface.

Because Green Wash has been made for soft washing flat roofs. It is considered to be the best product for you to use.

When using a Blend system manufactured by SoftWash Systems in Ashford, Kent, it will allow you to carefully “blend” the required strength of chemicals to achieve excellent clean flat roofs.

Different chemicals are safely stored inside different chemical tanks and controlled by metering valves to allow the user to easily set the dial for the amount required.

Sodium Hypochlorite is the main ingredient for a soft wash solution. Max strength is 5%.

The soft wash solution is delivered to the flat roof surface by a chemical pump through a 100 metre hose, and through a soft washing wand.

Because the sodium hypochlorite and Green Wash are mixed with water they make up a Soft Wash mix.

Sprayed onto a surface carefully and from a distance of 3 feet or more, oxygen is brought into the mix which in turn makes bleach, bleach better.

What our Clients Think

  • Our listed railway station is built entirely of wood and our Pullman railway carriages  are also built of timber and all these structures require regular and gentle washing, without harmful chemicals, to preserve the paint.  We have used Purple Rhino for over 2 years and their structured approach to this large task ensures our buildings and windows stay in pristine condition.  Their use of specially purified water ensures a streak-free finish every time

  • We would confirm Purple Rhino undertook the cleaning of ten large internal courtyard areas at the above hospital. As may be expected with hospital work complications did arise particularly from The Trust who had concerns with regards to patients in individual wards all of which were adjacent to the working areas. Not withstanding these problems Purple Rhino worked quickly and diligently with all parties so as to mitigate the issues and were able to complete in a timely and expeditious manner. All parties, including The Trust, were most appreciative with the quality of the completed works. In view of these experiences with Purple Rhino, we would not hesitate to recommend them for any future works relating to cleaning facades.
