Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing - What's the Difference?

Not only is it important to clean the exterior of and around your home, but it’s important to know which method to use when cleaning. Soft Washing or Pressure (power) Washing. Luckily, our technicians are trained on both techniques and have the knowledge and experience to know when to use each method.

Let’s start with - What is Soft Washing? Soft washing is the cleaning method that uses a combination of a biodegradable mixture in association with a low pressure application. Biodegradable means they breakdown into carbon and water within 20 days of their introduction to the environment. The proven mixture extends the longevity of the service because it actually kills the infestation to its core rather than eroding a “layer” of growth. Our technicians apply our soft wash mixture to the surface they are cleaning and let it sit for several minutes. This allows the solution to be absorbed into your siding or roof. It is then rinsed off using low-pressure water.

Pressure Washing is the cleaning method that uses the force of high-pressure water to blast surfaces clean of dirt, mold, mildew and algae. The key difference between pressure and soft washing is what’s cleaning the surface. Soft washing is cleaning surfaces with chemicals and pressure washing is cleaning surfaces with pressure.

As a Certified Applicator through SoftWash Systems, we usually recommend soft washing for residential homes to avoid damage to your siding or roof. As experts in restoration and maintenance of decks and fences, we recommend using pressure washing on durable surfaces including fences, decks, sidewalks, concrete, driveways, patios etc. Click the button below to learn more about our services.
