When you order pressure washing service for your home, you need to know the difference between soft washing and power washing. The best thing that you can do is speak to an expert who can explain how each process keeps your home in excellent condition. In this blog, Brian Tyrrell, our owner at Pro House Washers here in Rochester, MN, has contributed his expertise to help explain the distinction between these two quite different approaches.
Since your home’s exterior consists of a variety of materials and substances, it’s essential to make sure that your pressure washer uses the appropriate cleaning process for each area to avoid damage. Our professionals know to use a mixture of soft and power washing to make your home sparkle. We love to help clients prepare their homes and yards for family gatherings, an open house, or simply to keep their home’s curb appeal looking perfect — the envy of their neighbors!
What Is Power Washing?
Power washing is a high-pressure wash that we use to clean brick, stone, and concrete. This very high-power spray is the washing process for cleaning hard surfaces around the property that are almost impossible to damage, such as concrete or paved surfaces. However, we still use adjustable spray levels even on patios, sidewalks, and driveways to maintain a consistency of the surface appearance.
Additionally, we can use power washing to clean your front stoop, steps, paving stones, and walkways. Having these areas clean helps prevent slippage, falls, and injuries from any accumulated buildup.
Power washing also keeps the property looking its very best. We want to ensure that you love where you live that you contribute to beautifying your entire neighborhood.
What Is Soft Washing?
We use the soft washing process for the parts of your home that are prone to damage from high water pressure treatments. Soft washing allows us to wash your delicate siding, wood deck, and even your furniture without causing damage. It’s a perfect technique for window cleaning, too—in tandem with our squeegee squad!
We use soft washing to gently clean painted siding. However, if you want to strip paint to repaint your siding, we switch to power washing, which will effectively remove the paint. However, as we get closer to the foundation, we switch back to a softer spray level to avoid flooding the basement or crawl space.
