We like to think of our company as a toolkit. Every property is unique, after all – and make sure we have all the tools to meet those needs.
Power washing and soft washing are two of the tools we use most. But although these services share a similar name, the application is actually quite unique. Understanding the purpose and benefits of each service is important as you map out a maintenance plan for your exterior. And our team is here to help!
Where Soft Washing & Power Washing Differ
First off, we’re going to introduce an acronym we use often in the pressure washing world: PSI, short for pounds-per-square-inch. PSI refers to the amount of pressure used in our cleaning service – how much pressure is exerted when we apply water to your exterior. This also determines a few differences:
- High PSI vs. low PSI
Power washing uses a high PSI to wash surfaces with force. It delivers a deep, powerful clean, and it’s especially useful for those really tough stains.
Soft washing, on the other hand, uses a low PSI – typically less than half of what we use in power washing. This is useful for surfaces that can’t handle high pressure but still need a deep clean.
- Hardscapes vs. houses
Power washing is great for hardscapes – think sidewalks, driveways, entryways, patios, and pool decks.
Soft washing is ideal for home exteriors and roofs.
One Key Similarity: Quality
There’s one overarching theme across our power washing and soft washing services: high caliber results. We do this in a few ways:
- Top-of-the-line equipment
Simply put: we invest in the best. Our power washing and soft washing technology is the finest equipment available on the market.
- Powerful cleaning products
We have carefully selected our cleaning products for every service – and they’re designed to break down everything from grease stains to mold buildup.
Your siding isn’t the same as your sidewalk. Your shingles aren’t the same as your entryway. So why should our cleaning approach be the same? With power washing and soft washing capability, we can tailor our cleaning approach to your property, your surfaces, and your needs.
