What Is Soft Washing?

What is soft washing, and how is it different from pressure washing? Soft washing is a more mild washing technique. Soft washing is utilized on surfaces that would be easily damaged by the strong spray of a pressure washer. Examples of these surfaces would be wood, windows, shingles, etc.

Soft washing utilizes a biodegradable cleaning solution to clean surfaces instead of a high pressure spray to avoid damage.

What Is Pressure Washing

Now, what is pressure washing, and when is it utilized? While soft washing is used for weaker surfaces, pressure washing is used for your stronger surfaces, such as concrete. Pressure washing utilizes a high-pressure spray to clean surfaces, instead of chemicals or cleaning solutions. You should use a pressure washer when you're cleaning hard surfaces, such as:

  • Concrete Surfaces
  • Paver Surfaces
  • Brick
  • Stone
