Greenway Softwashing have over 10 years experience in the cleaning industry, along with 30 years of Building and construction practical knowledge .We focus on the cleaning and restoration of render, stone work, roofs and cladding, as well as highly specialised in cleaning Tennis Courts. We have worked for a variety of clients throughout Gloucestershire and have a large portfolio of successfully completed jobs, performed within the budget of our clients.
Our knowledge and experience in this industry means that we have developed the perfect cleaning methods for the purpose of cleaning and restoring Render, Delicate stone, Cladding, Tennis Courts and Roofs.
We only use the best cleaning products/equipment currently on the market. All cleaning products that we use, not only produce excellent results, but more importantly, do not damage any of the surfaces we clean.
We invest constantly to ensure we have the very best equipment and machinery on the market to ensure we are able to tackle any job in hand and be ahead of the game. Some of the machinery is extremely specialised and not available to hire, meaning we are able to undertake work others cannot. Our vans have commission built pressure washing and soft washing systems on board, meaning we can fully adapt to the task in hand. The on-board Briggs and Stratton V twin system can produce 3650 psi with 30 litres per min of flow rate for large commercial flat surface work, right down to the 12 volt system for pressure as low as 145 psi and a 1 litre per min flow rate. Using high pressure on render or such surfaces can cause tremendous damage opening up the surface to create a further more porous surface for additional colonisation of algae etc and often striping of the surface. If the cleaning solution is to be rinsed afterwards, we use a wide nozzle, high flow approach with hot water to obtain a better clean.
We also have the World renowned “ Doff “ stone cleaning system. This is approved by English Heritage for use on Listed and Historic buildings. This produces super-heated water and steam to delicately removed organic staining from many surfaces, along with paint removal to include graffiti. This teamed up with restorative chemicals can also gently remove years of carbon.
It can be used for the gentle cleaning of historical, listed and delicate building substrates along with carbon, graffiti, timber restoration, marble, bronze, and facades amongst many others.
We have over 30 years of hands on building construction knowledge and certification meaning we are often able to fully advise/report on defects as we come across them, along with often rectifying the cause of the problem too. Time served knowledge cannot be gained on a short course, which are often aimed as selling the suppliers own products. Some of these other approaches use large quantities of chemical and causes drift to unwanted target areas. This can cause untold damage. Unfortunately there is no recognised Government regulation or qualification in this industry at present. Please check the background experience of any contractor you are thinking of employing. Because of this, we ensure our staff are fully trained in what “IS” Government recognised qualifications such as NPTC that covers Health and safety, Handling and Applying Chemicals. Working at Height for safety, IPAF covering using MEWPS, high level mobile access platforms and PASMA , for the use of Tower scaffolding to mention a few.
We can reach elevations up to 10 metres from the ground safely, using full carbon fibre water fed poles, with either nozzles or brushes fitted. Above that height and for awkward access we have invested our very own high access equipment such as narrow light weight aluminium tower scaffolding and our own Cherry picker. This highly manoeuvrable and adaptive machine will go through a narrow gap yet reach heights of 15 metres with a very small foot print on the ground. We have access to larger machines when needed.
Soft washing will kill the spores and treat unwanted biological growth of fungus, moss, red and green algae, bacteria, lichen, pollen, mould and other forms of growth on the target surface. The chemicals are Eco-friendly and do not “bio accumulate”, meaning they break down rapidly on contact with soil to give it a very low environmental footprint. The work area is rinsed unless a residual biocide is applied and once dry is perfectly safe for children and pets etc.
Greenway Softwashing and all of our employees are PureSeal Approved Applicators. PureSeal Services UK Ltd are manufacturers of HSE approved biocides and label compliant products which are all licensed for use as hard surface biocides. Approved Applicators have received full training on how to apply PureSeal Services biocides correctly and safely keeping our employees, our customers and their properties safe whilst adopting safe practices to protect the environment.
PureSeal BioClear Pro is our fully approved and licensed 40% DDAC product and is registered on the COPR database (No 10854) as a surface biocide.
PureSeal BioClear Pro is a professional grade biocide that is fast acting against biological growth on external hard surfaces. BioClear Pro can be used on most surfaces and 1 coat applied with a brush or a sprayer is enough to break the reproductive cycle of microbial surface contaminants. Simply apply BioClear Pro on to the surface and leave it to self cleanse.
PureSeal ClingFilm Pro is our label compliant sodium hypochlorite based gel that is both thin enough to spray and thick enough to cling.
PureSeal ClingFilm Pro is a sodium hypochlorite based gel that clings to vertical surfaces but can also be used on ground surfaces. It’s powerful and fast acting formula is effective at removing stubborn unwanted staining off most surfaces. It can be applied using a sprayer or backpack set up.
PureSeal BacClear Pro is our fully approved and licensed Bac50 product and is registered on the COPR database (No 10878) as a surface biocide.
PureSeal BacClear Pro is a professional grade biocide that is fast acting against biological growth on external hard surfaces. BacClear Pro can be used on a majority of surfaces and 1 coat applied with a brush or a sprayer is enough to break the reproductive cycle of microbial surface contaminants. BacClear Pro should be used as a treatment after steam cleaning/pressure washing or as a maintenance treatment. Unlike our BioClear Pro (DDAC) product, BacClear Pro can have a reduced performance in hard water areas and in colder conditions. BacClear pro is a perfect preventative maintenance treatment for sealed surfaces and will prolong the longevity of the protective coating.
PASMA stands for Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association. The Standard PASMA training course is the Tower For Users, which is a 1 day course and is valid for 5 years. This course now includes the standard 3T scaffold tower and the AGR (Advanced Guard Rail) system. We are PASMA qualified.
Soft washing is a safe and very effective low pressure cleaning and sanitizing method, for both domestic and commercial properties.
