Soft power washing

Service Description

Soft power washing, also known as low-pressure washing or soft washing, is a cleaning method that uses lower water pressure compared to traditional power washing. Instead of relying solely on high-pressure water to clean surfaces, soft power washing involves the use of specialized cleaning solutions and detergents to remove dirt, stains, mold, mildew, and other contaminants.

Key features of soft power washing include:

Low Pressure: Soft power washing uses water pressure significantly lower than standard power washing. The pressure is typically around 500 to 1,500 psi (pounds per square inch) or even lower, depending on the surface being cleaned.

Cleaning Solutions: The primary cleaning agents in soft power washing are specialized cleaning solutions and detergents. These solutions are applied to the surface before the low-pressure water rinse, allowing the cleaning agents to break down and lift away dirt, grime, and stains effectively.

Safe for Delicate Surfaces: Soft power washing is particularly suitable for delicate surfaces, such as painted surfaces, siding, stucco, roofing, and certain types of wood. It is less likely to cause damage or strip away paint and finishes compared to high-pressure power washing.

Effective for Organic Stains: Soft power washing is especially effective at removing organic stains like algae, mold, mildew, and moss, which commonly appear on exterior surfaces.

Longer Lasting Results: Because soft power washing includes the use of cleaning solutions, it can provide longer-lasting cleaning results compared to traditional power washing alone.

Less Water Usage: Soft power washing typically uses less water than high-pressure power washing, which can be more environmentally friendly.

Soft power washing is a gentle yet effective cleaning method for various exterior surfaces, especially those that are more susceptible to damage from high-pressure washing. It is commonly used on residential homes, roofs, decks, fences, and other outdoor structures. However, it's important to note that some surfaces and stains may still require the use of traditional power washing to achieve optimal results. If you're unsure which method is suitable for your cleaning needs, it's best to consult a professional cleaning service that can assess the surface and recommend the appropriate cleaning approach.
