Power Washing, Pressure Washing & Soft Washing
Hello homeowners, there is always some confusion on these common terms for exterior cleaning.
Power washing, pressure washing, and soft washing are three different cleaning methods that vary in terms of the pressure used to clean surfaces and the types of surfaces they are best suited for.
Power washing and pressure washing are essentially the same cleaning method that uses a high-pressure water spray to remove dirt, grime, mold, and other types of debris from hard surfaces such as concrete driveways, decks, sidewalks, and more. They are effective ways to remove built-up dirt and stains from these types of surfaces.
Soft washing, on the other hand, is a cleaning method that uses a low-pressure water spray combined with a cleaning solution to remove dirt, mold, and other types of debris from more delicate surfaces such as roofs, siding, and other exterior surfaces. Soft washing is a gentler cleaning method that is less likely to damage delicate surfaces and is often used for more sensitive cleaning tasks.
Choosing the appropriate cleaning method depends on the surface being cleaned and the level of cleaning required. For heavy-duty cleaning tasks where tough stains need to be removed from hard surfaces, power washing or pressure washing is the best option. For more delicate surfaces that require a gentler touch, soft washing is the preferred method. It is important to use the appropriate cleaning method to avoid damaging the surface being cleaned.
