What Is Soft Power Washing?

Learn about This Power Washing Method


soft power washing

There are three types of power washing: power washing, pressure washing, and soft washing. Power washing combines high heat and a pressurized stream of water. Pressure washing, as the name suggests, uses a pressurized stream of water. And soft power washing uses chemicals to clean. All of them offer their own benefits. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at soft washing.

What Is Soft Power Washing?

This type of washing is completely different than the other two. Rather than manually cleaning with a heavy stream of water, soft washing utilizes chemicals to clean. After applying the chemical, you let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the surface with water.

Why Should You Choose Soft Washing?

Sensitive Areas: Methods like power and pressure washing are harsh and can damage your belongings, chipping stone, splitting wood, and causing cracks in siding. Soft washing is best suited for siding, fabrics, walkways, decks, and other areas that you have to be concerned about color damage or chipping. It’s the safest option for all areas of your home.

Safety: It’s the safest method you can use. Pressure washers can generate 1,500 to 4,000 psi (pounds per square inch). To put it in perspective, a garden hose delivers about 50 psi. If misdirected, it’s strong enough to damage skin upon contact. The most common injuries include lacerations, bruises, punctures, and eye injuries.
