If your siding is in need of some TLC, don’t bust out the power washer! Soft washing is a much safer method of cleaning more sensitive surfaces, and it won’t leave behind unsightly or expensive damage. For all you home or property owners from Nanaimo to Campbell River or over into Parksville and Port Alberni, Big Island Cleaning would love to spruce up the exterior of your building to show you what a great job soft washing can do.


Soft washing is a relatively newer method of cleaning. Instead of the high powered stream of water that pressure washing uses, soft washing utilizes lower pressure and specific detergents that will clean your surfaces effectively and safely without leaving behind expensive damage. Siding, stucco, stone, and brick surfaces are perfect candidates for soft washing, as are your gutters, roofs, and even your windows. We think you’ll be very impressed with the job our soft washing machines can do for you!


There are several reasons why soft washing is a better cleaning method than power washing:

  1. It is so much safer for surfaces that are sensitive to intense pressure. Exterior surfaces like stucco will not be damaged by soft washing, whereas pressure washing can lead to cracks and chips where water can get in.
  2. It does a great job of cleaning your surfaces. The special detergents that soft washers use do an excellent job of removing buildup and other kinds of grime or dirt.
  3. Soft washing can be done quickly. You can rest assured that you can get back to business as usual in no time at all.
  4. Soft washing is affordable. When you compare soft washing to pressure washing, for example, soft washing is a cheaper solution.

As you can see, soft washing is a much more effective method than going with power washing. There’s no need to risk damaging your delicate surfaces when you can achieve an amazing clean safely and quickly!
