What Power Washing Method Should You Use?

Your Three Options


Which power washing method should you use?

When many people think of power washing, they imagine a hard stream of water that removes gunk and grime. Do you know that’s not your only option for tough cleaning outside your home? There are three main options to choose: power washing, pressure washing, and soft power washing. Which power washing method should you use?

What Power Washing Method Should You Use?

Power Washing

Power washing combines high heat and a pressurized stream of water. This mechanical process removes dirt, mud, mildew, mold and other contaminants from the exterior of your home. While it may seem like a safe DIY, the pressurized water can cause serious bodily harm because it is released at such a high speed and temperature

Pressure Washing

This type uses a strong stream of water to clean but, unlike power washing, it’s not done at a high temperature. Like pressure washing, it can be dangerous for an untrained person to do on their own.

Soft Washing

This type of pressure washing is completely different than the other two. Rather than manually cleaning with a heavy stream of water, soft washing utilizes chemicals. This makes it better 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 your home.

How to Decide Which Power Washing Method You Should Use

  • Is it a delicate surface?
  • Do you have experience using a power or pressure washer?
  • Do you have the safety gear necessary for using a higher or hotter water stream?
