Soft Wash vs. High Pressure: Which is Better For Your Home?

Pressure washing involves using high-pressure water to clean the exterior surfaces of a home. While this can be an effective way to remove dirt, grime, and other types of buildup, it can also be detrimental to the surface being cleaned if not done properly. High pressure can damage certain materials, such as wood and stucco, by causing them to chip or peel. It can also force water into cracks and crevices, causing further damage.

In contrast, soft washing involves using a low-pressure spray and a specialized cleaning solution to gently remove dirt and other types of buildup. Because it uses lower pressure, soft washing is less likely to cause damage to the surface being cleaned. It is often a better choice for cleaning delicate surfaces, such as roofs and exterior walls, as well as for removing more stubborn types of dirt and grime.

how is soft washing better than pressure washing

There are a few key ways in which soft washing is generally considered to be superior to pressure washing:

  1. Gentle cleaning: Soft washing uses a much lower pressure than pressure washing, which makes it less likely to damage delicate surfaces or cause water infiltration. This makes it a better choice for cleaning roofs, walls, and other surfaces that are more vulnerable to damage.

  2. More effective at removing stains: The cleaning solution used in soft washing is typically left to dwell on the surface for a longer period of time than the water used in pressure washing. This allows the solution to penetrate deeper into the material being cleaned, making it more effective at removing stains, mold, and other contaminants.

  3. Longer-lasting results: Because soft washing is more effective at removing stains and contaminants, the results are often longer lasting than those achieved with pressure washing. This means that surfaces that have been soft washed may need to be cleaned less frequently, saving time and money in the long run.
