SoftWash Systems Time Proven Chemicals
In 1994 this softwashing additive was tested in a major shingle manufacturers laboratory and judged safe for use on shingle roofs. In the testing process two shingles were taken directly from the manufacturing line for testing purposes. One was coated in a bleach and water solution that also contained our additive. The other was not treated at all. Both shingles were then placed in testing ovens at 300 degrees and 100% humidity for thirty days. (This test simulates 30 years of shingle aging) After that the two shingles were removed from the testing ovens and examined. The shingle treated with our softwashing solution had no further aging than the one that was not treated at all. Based upon that test AC’s company was chosen to perform cleanings on that manufacturers shingle roofing products.
In 1998 the chemical make-up of our softwashing additive was changed to be completely biodegradable. This adjustment took phosphates completely out of our chemicals. Phosphates are what is added to most soaps to make them foam or create suds. Since 1998 all of our chemicals have met the definition of biodegradable in that they break down into carbon and / or water within twenty (20) days of their introduction into the environment.
In early 2004 AC’s company and chemicals reached another milestone. The largest theme park company in Florida needed us to clean a resort that was centered around a preserve of African animals. The theme parks veterinary services department was called upon to test and approve AC’s softwashing techniques and chemicals for use immediately around these animals and their habitats. With careful consideration and examination of the products this famous theme park’s veterinary services department approved the use of AC’s softwashing technique and chemicals.
Now by 2015 AC and SoftWash Systems softwashing equipment and chemicals have been used in thirty (30)states of the US and five (5) countries. Our in-network companies have cleaned in excess of 100,000 roofs and structures throughout the world and our products have been approved for use by major theme parks, property management companies, government buildings, installations, colleges and universities. To date there is no safer, better respected and more widely used softwashing products line available.
