  • Hi Dougie 

    PW is a great add-on service with many customers often requesting it. For regular gardens it allows you to build it in to the service plan and keep everything looking great.

    Most petrol pressure washers are fine for the job. Aim for a minimum of 2500psi and 12 ltrs per minute. 

    Slipstream Pro 20 is more than capable. 

    With regard to softwash, it has many uses around the garden from cleaning patios, decking, driveways, walling etc.

    There are two main chemicals used in softwash (DO NOT MIX THE TWO CHEMICALS)

    DDAC biocide is great for hardstanding maintenance as it is a fire and forget chemical. It breaks the cell walls of the algae, lichens etc and has a more natural cleaning cycle.

    Hypochlorite is great for removing blackspots in sandstone etc after power washing. Bit more difficult to use around other sensitive surfaces though.

    As always, pets must be kept from the area until the chemicals have been rinsed or dried.

    Been softwashing since 2015 so any questions just ask 👍


    • Thank for the helpful information i did look at slipsteam 12 but there said that was more a domestic machine would tou recommend power washing to softwashing is the ddac long process to see results or are they instant? Thanks

        DDAC will kill moss and algae instantly but it takes 2-3 months for the secondry cleaning to take effect. But it then keeps surfaces clean for a further 6 months or so
