Southeast Softwash LLC Offers a 'Brushless' Paint Oxidation Remover

Southeast Softwash LLC, a company based in Roanoke, AL, is offering Ox-Knox, which has been designed to effectively get rid of oxidation on various kinds of surfaces, such as AlucoBond, vinyl, and metal roofing. Oxidation used to be such a hassle to get rid of before Ox-Knox became available. However, it is important to follow the instructions carefully and to adjust the strength of the solution based on specific needs. This oxidation removal solution doesn’t require brushing and is suitable for softwash cleaning.

A spokesperson for Southeast Softwash LLC says, “Ox-Knox stands as a reliable aid in your surface preparation endeavors. Its formidable capabilities enable the removal of powdery oxidation, granting you a pristine canvas primed for a flawless paint application. However, it is essential to exercise caution and adhere to the following advisory: prolonged exposure or an excessively concentrated mixture of Ox-Knox may result in paint removal. Should you desire to preserve the existing paint, we advise carefully determining the appropriate ratio or alternatively refraining from using the product altogether. Please be aware that any misuse of this product, including unintended paint removal or any other consequences, falls outside our responsibility. We emphasize the importance of responsible handling and understanding the inherent risks associated with the usage of Ox Knox.”

There are many benefits that can be obtained through softwashing. First, it can be utilized for cleaning hard-to-reach surfaces of the home’s exterior. This is because from the ground, the water would be able to reach as high as 50 feet. This implies that ladders, scaffolding, or extension poles would not be needed to reach high areas such as the roof or gutters. Second, softwashing ensures the exterior of the home is damaged by the cleaning process. The use of high pressure water for cleaning windows or roof shingles cause broken glass, granular loss, or removal of the roof’s coating. Third, softwashing can provide a longer lasting clean because high pressure washing may not always eliminate all the algae, mildew, mold, or moss. Fourth, less labor is needed for softwashing, in contrast to pressure washing because the cleaning solution, such as the brushless oxidation remover does much of the work. Fifth, it is possible to avoid safety risks and accidents. Sixth, the cleaning solutions are eco-friendly. And lastly, eliminating the dirt, grime, mold, pollen, and other undesirable microorganisms can provide a healthier home environment.

Softwashing is a cleaning process used for the exterior surfaces of a home that uses low-pressure water to make sure the surface being cleaned is not damaged. This type of cleaning is appropriate for more fragile surfaces that can be ruined by the standard pressure washing method. Oftentimes, using high pressure water can be used to eliminate the dirt, dust, mold, mud, gums, and other unwanted substances on the surface to be cleaned. However, for fragile surfaces that can be damaged with the high pressure, softwashing is used.

Softwashing is used in combination with cleaning solutions to effectively kill bacteria, mildew, moss, mold, and other microorganisms. Such cleaning solution is made with water bleach, and surfactant. The softwashing method is appropriate for: roof shingles; glass doors; lanais; windows; patio enclosures; stucco; screens; vinyl siding; cedar shake siding; coquina; outdoor furniture; and wood panel siding.

Southeast Softwash LLC started in 1987 when owner and manager Coty Yarbrough’s father Lane Yarbrough began searching for the reasons why the asphalt shingles for roofing would have unsightly black streaks after a few years. He did some experiments on various methods for cleaning roofs and his first successful roof cleaning was performed on their own house in 1988. With the help of a chemist working in the roofing company where he was employed he was able to discover the proper chemicals for washing. It was then called “low pressure washing,” and it is currently known as “softwashing” and Southeast Softwash also developed an equipment manufacturing division in 2018 that designed and launched softwashing equipment.
