Softwashing Walls and Patio in Leicester

Softwashing Walls and Patio in Leicester: Richard Humphries, Leicester Pro-Clean.

We were recently called out to Cropstone in Leicester, to carry out a Soft Wash on a retaining wall and a garden Patio.

What is Softwashing?

Softwashing is the removal of dirt, grime, moss, algae lichens using reduced pressure and usually some form of chemical solution.

This particular job required us to – remove black mould, mildew and Moss and black spots from a patio and a retaining wall which was making the outside of the property look unsightly.   Obviously, this work can be done by hand, but its a lot harder to do yourself, so why not call in the experts?

We applied our anti-fungal solution and let that settle before removing the residues and dirt with a lower pressure water jet from our specialist pressure washer.   The benefits of being able to soft wash are that the antifungal solution loosens the mosses and lichens and will also coat all surfaces it is applied to, preventing rapid regrowth.

Secondly, the lower water pressure used prevents and damage to mortars and grouts that can occur when high-pressure water jets are used.  Ultimately it’s all about preserving and extending the life of your property, whilst making the least environmental impact.


The client was very happy with the results knowing it will last 5 times longer than pressure washing alone.
