Is Softwashing Safe For Children & Pets?

Softwashing is a gentle approach to cleaning the exterior of your home or business that can be used safely around children and pets.

The chemicals that are used to Softwash are environmentally friendly, biodegradable, non-hazardous, and water-based. The key is to hire a company that is well trained and certified to apply the chemicals used for softwashing and utilize the proper steps to ensure that the chemicals are safe during and after the process.

During the cleaning process, it's vital to keep children and pets indoors, limiting their exposure to the softwash solutions. However, once the cleaning is complete, they can be allowed to go back outside.

Another thing to consider is the soil.

Protecting your landscaping should also be considered when hiring a company to softwash your home. The landscape must be pre-soak before and during the cleaning process to ensure that the chemicals used do not harm the plants.

During the cleaning process, the soil can become sterilized, killing the aerobic bacteria that provide nutrients to your plants.

Mountain View Softwash is a certified softwash applicator and has been extensively trained to apply, clean and property neutralize all chemicals used in the softwashing process.

After softwashing your home or business, Mountain View Softwash applies a plant wash to reduce the damage associated with caustic cleaners like sodium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide. The proprietary Softwash Systems plant wash fortifies and provides a buffering agent that coats the leaves adding back vital nutrients to the base of the plants helping the beneficial bacteria repopulate the soil.
