Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Good Choices Pressure Washing

What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

The difference between these two cleaning methods lies mainly in their application. Pressure washing uses higher pressure water spray and occasionally heat to power through stubborn dirt and grime on hardscapes like concrete sidewalks, driveways, and patios. Conversely, soft washing uses much milder water pressure paired with a combination of cleaning agents like algaecides, bleach, and other surfactants to clear away dirt, stains, and organic matter. With soft washing, the chemicals do most of the work so that heavier pressure isn't necessary. Soft washing is ideal for more delicate exteriors like roof shingles, wood, and siding that could sustain damage from regular power washing.

Is It Safe To Use High Pressure Washing On All My Home Surfaces?

No. Not all of your home's installations are strong enough to withstand the power of pressure washing without sustaining damage. Your roof, siding, windows, and gutters are just a few of the fixtures you should never power wash. If you're new to pressure washing and aren't sure which surfaces are suitable for this type of cleaning, then it's best to consult a local professional.
