Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Softwash Solution?

    The Softwash Solution “Professional Use Only” Biocide gives a soft and gentle treatment, which completely disinfects and eradicates biofilm filths without causing damage to surfaces or the environment. It has the highest quality in active ingredient approved by the government (50% DDAC), with the benefit of being highly biodegradable and with a low environmental footprint. Once dry, the Solution is PH neutral and safe for your pets.

  • How does Softwash Solution work?

    Softwash Solution Biocide works by puncturing the walls of biofilms and destroying the organism down to their roots. The organisms are instantly washed off surfaces with a characteristic longevity of clean time and more value for money. It is important to note that; often, after treatment, the surface can take-up a reddish or greenish look. This is basically Softwash Solution doing its job. Biofilm cells components, upon puncture; basically bleed out, releasing beta-carotene and chlorophyll. However, in a short time, the colouration begins to lighten and eventually disappear.

  • How long will it last?

    The Softwash Solutions Treatments offer greater longevity when compared to conventional high-pressure power washing or unlicensed, aggressive chemical treatments. Also, Maintenance Treatment Programmes could be set up for a long-term solution to keeping surfaces permanently clean.

  • How long does it take to work?

    Cleaning time of Solution depends on the biofilm type and the biological load thereof, present on the surface under treatment. For example, the red biofilm of Trentepohlia may take up to one week, while green algae or Mildew can disappear in about a day. Black moulds of Aspergillus usually take longer, and although, growth would have been halted and organisms killed, residual staining may often require further treatments and rinsing.
