Pressure Washing vs. Soft Washing

Outdoor cleaning can be a very overwhelming subject to consider, especially when it comes to the maintenance of your home. It may seem like an insurmountable goal, keeping your outdoor surfaces clean. However, there are many ways to keep your outdoor area clean and maintained.

Two of the best ways to clean your outdoor areas are pressure washing and soft washing. Both are great for cleaning larger surfaces in a short amount of time. But which cleaning option should you use for your current cleaning project?

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing is a great option for keeping your outdoor surfaces clean. Pressure washing utilizes high-pressure water sprays, between 750-30,000 PSI, to clean away dirt and grime from stronger surfaces, such as concrete, metal, or hardwoods.

Companies that offer pressure washing clean away dirt, grime, loose paint, chewing gum, dust, mud, and debris from objects or surfaces such as:

  • Patios
  • Fences
  • Driveways
  • And More!

The danger with pressure washing is that the high-pressure spray utilized can cause damages to softer surfaces, such as softwood, siding, and shingling. While pressure washing is a great way to easily clean large areas of strong materials, it isn’t suggested to use on house washing projects, roof cleaning, or window washing to avoid damages to your property.

The nozzle used on a pressure washing machine can also influence your cleaning options and the safety of your machine. Utilizing the wrong nozzle can cause etching, damages, and injury.

Soft Washing

Soft washing is a great alternative when pressure washing is too dangerous for your cleaning project. Because soft washing only utilizes a water spray of 40-80 PSI, it is safe for all the more fragile materials such as softwood, siding, and shingling.

The soft washing process begins with the application of a biodegradable, eco-friendly cleaner that breaks down the mold, mildew, and bacteria that grow on your outdoor surfaces. This cleaner is washed away with a low-powered water-bleach spray that cleans and sanitizes your outdoor surfaces.

Soft washing is perfect for all your house washing, roof cleaning, and window washing needs because it is the gentler option for your home.

Hiring a professional soft washing company ensures that your home and roof are protected from damages. Because siding and shingles are generally made of more fragile materials, it’s a good idea to use a gentler cleaning process to avoid damaging these areas of your home.
