If the exterior of your home has become dirty and stained, you may be considering pressure washing. Depending on the condition and materials of your home, pressure washing may not be the best option as it could potentially cause damage. Pressure washing is powerful and does a great job of clearing away debris, but it can also damage your home’s windows, siding, roofing, and other materials. That is why a soft wash can be the perfect solution. If you have never heard of soft wash, you may be wondering how it works.
Pressure washing produces a strong spray that removes mold, dirt and stains with few chemicals. Soft wash runs water through a pump but uses very little pressurization. This type of cleaning uses a higher volume of water with a higher concentration of chemicals to achieve the same results without causing damage to the exterior of your home when done properly. The higher chemical concentration of soft wash does have the potential to cause damage to plants or other surfaces if used incorrectly. Both pressure washing and soft wash have their uses and a professional has the expertise to determine which system works best with a particular situation. Pressure washing is typically the better option for driveways and walkways, whereas soft washing may be the better choice for a home that has older siding and few plants. Windows, screens, shingles and wood paneling are materials that are typically cleaned using the soft wash method. Soft washing also kills mold, mildew, algae, bacteria, moss and fungi.
