What’s the difference and why soft-wash is sometimes better.
What's the difference between the 'soft-wash' and 'hard-wash' method?
To most folks, pressure washing is just that – using water pressure to clean something – which is true. However, many professionals use different approaches to clean different things. For example, I like to use the ‘soft-wash method’. This uses a soapy solution to kill mold spores and remove dirt and grime from your siding using gentle pressure.
Here are some benefits for using the ‘soft-wash’ method:
1. Lower risk of damaging. Siding, and shingles can be sensitive to high pressure. By using the soft-wash method, we reduce the risk of damaging your property.
2. Soft-wash method on your house or roof is more efficient and cost effective. This cost saving can be passed on to you the customer.
3. Using the soft-wash method, will kill the mold and mildew rather than just ‘blowing’ away the mildew and mold spores. By killing the mildew and mold, will ensure that your house will stay cleaner longer.
When to use ‘hard-wash method’
This method is used on hard or ground surfaces. This includes driveways, pavers, decks etc.
