The difference between ‘Soft Wash’ services and ‘Pressure Washing’

When it comes to cleaning the exterior of your home or business, you may have heard the terms “soft wash” and “pressure washing” used interchangeably…

While both methods can be effective for removing dirt, grime, and other buildup from surfaces, there are some key differences between the two that you should be aware of.

Pressure washing, also known as power washing, involves the use of high-pressure water to blast away dirt and grime from surfaces. This method is often used to clean decks, sidewalks, and other hard surfaces, and can be effective for removing tough stains and buildup. However, it can also be damaging to certain materials, such as wood, if not done properly.

In contrast, soft wash services use a low-pressure, chemical-based cleaning solution to gently remove dirt and grime from surfaces. This method is typically used on delicate surfaces, such as roof shingles and siding, and is less likely to cause damage than pressure washing. The cleaning solution is applied using specialized equipment, and is left to sit on the surface for a period of time before being rinsed off.

One of the key advantages of soft washing over pressure washing is that it is more gentle on surfaces, and is less likely to cause damage. This is especially important for delicate materials, such as wood and shingles, which can be easily damaged by high-pressure water. Additionally, soft washing is more effective at removing tough stains and grime, such as algae and mold, which can be difficult to remove with pressure washing alone.

Another advantage of soft washing is that it is typically more environmentally friendly than pressure washing. The low-pressure, chemical-based cleaning solution used in soft washing is biodegradable and safe for the environment, whereas pressure washing can often result in the water and debris being washed into storm drains and other waterways.

Overall, while both soft washing and pressure washing can be effective for cleaning the exterior of your home or business, it is important to choose the right method for the job. For delicate surfaces, such as wood and shingles, soft washing is the better choice. For tougher surfaces, such as decks and sidewalks, pressure washing may be more appropriate. It is always best to consult with a professional cleaning company to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
