The Difference Between Soft Washing and Pressure Washing

 

You want to keep your property attractive. One way to do it is by keeping the exterior clean. However, maintaining its cleanliness isn’t as easy as 1-2-3.

Some property owners don’t know that there are different techniques in cleaning their property’s exterior, which includes soft washing and pressure washing. To avoid damaging the property, they should familiarize themselves with these techniques. Knowing the differences will also help them avoid hiring an amateur who doesn’t correctly do both types of cleaning.

Propel Pressure Cleaning will go over the differences between soft washing and pressure washing to help you. In this article, we provide examples of when to use both techniques correctly.

Pressure Washing

In pressure washing, highly pressurized water gets rid of dirt or grime from different surfaces forcibly. Although it’s extremely powerful in eliminating various kinds of stains, it poses some risks of damaging your property’s exterior features. Applying too much pressure can damage wood, shingles, windows, and paint.

Indeed, you must take special care when pressure washing surfaces. Keep in mind that only professionally trained individuals should use this method. You can’t do this yourself as it may injure you or damage the property. You don’t want expensive medical bills and repairs, do you?

While pressure washing has certain risks, keep in mind that it can serve its purpose if done by a professional.

Best uses for high-pressure washing:

  • Concrete, pavers, sidewalks, driveways
  • Paved patios
  • Pool decks
  • Brick
  • Stone
  • Durable surfaces
  • Graffiti removal

Soft Washing

A soft wash is a safer alternative as it uses very low pressure—making it ideal for residential properties. In this cleaning method, we combine detergents and solutions with water, which helps eliminate stains, dirt, grime, and other contaminants.

Since soft washing eats away at the contaminants, your surfaces will stay cleaner for an extended period. For this reason, you won’t have to pay extra for cleaning services.

Often, we use biodegradable chemicals when soft washing. Since they are safe for the environment, you won’t have to worry about the chemicals killing your plants.

Best uses for soft washing:

  • Roofs
  • Vinyl Siding
  • Wood
  • Windows
  • Cedar
  • Stucco
  • Screens and enclosures

Knowing the difference between pressure washing and soft washing is highly essential to avoid property damage. Additionally, it is necessary to make the cleaning process as safe as possible. If you know the differences, you will be able to assess what type of cleaning is ideal for your property, be it commercial or residential.

All in all, it’s best to hire a professional team like Propel Pressure Cleaning in carrying out the cleaning of your property’s exterior.

Our Reviews

While visiting my father in Warner Robins over the Thanksgiving holidays I noticed that it’s been sometime since his house was pressure washed. I thought it would be a nice gift so when I return back to my house I spent some time looking at companies/ reviews in that area and just made a decision based off the reviews. I reached out to Jesse and received a quote within a few minutes. I set up an appointment for a few weeks later. On the day of the appointment they showed up on time and began work. My father was very satisfied with the work done. In his words these guys were very professional. My father plans on retaining their services in the future. Based off my experience setting up the appointment and my father’s feedback I would highly recommend these guys for any and all your pressure washing needs.

Jesse came by one day and gave us a price to do our house, driveway and sidewalks that just floored us. We thought it had to be too good to be true. He floored us again with the job he did. He definitely will be doing our home from now on. Awesome job Jesse!!!

I’ve known Jesse for almost 20 years. He’s an all around good guy and a great father. He’s honest, loyal, hard working, and dedicated. When we got in a pinch with both sides of the family coming in town he really came through for us. What would of taken me days to do, he did in a matter of hours. The house and the walk ways were so clean I had to put on sun glasses to walk outside it was so bright. I don’t recommend a lot of businesses or put my name on the line for people, but I can say with full confidence that I highly recommend Propel Pressure Cleaning. If you need some work done Jesse Meister is the one to call.

Great work, courteous people, on time, and very reasonable pricing. I called & received a quote on Friday. Saturday moring Jesse came out and did a Great job on my driveway, brick mailbox, and back porch. He showed up exactly when he said he would, was nice to my family, and took pride in what he did. When he was done he even asked if I would take a look at the work to ensure it was satisfactory to my needs. I’ll use him again.
