Soft washing

We can forgive anyone who may have been led to believe that pressure washing consists of just standing behind a wand and blasting water around. That's the image that usually pops into people's heads at the mention of pressure washing, at least. Such pictures are rife on the internet, and while they may capture the general idea of pressure washing, the reality is much more nuanced and extensive.

Let's take a dive into a form of pressure washing known as soft washing. For those of you who aren't familiar, soft washing is a method of pressure washing that utilized a lower amount of water pressure set at varying degrees of temperature and combined with a greater mixture of cleaning solutions. It's a form of pressure washing that also employs different attachments, such as wide-angle nozzles to cover a greater spread of surface area. Soft washing sprays a cleansing, foamy amalgamation over a surface, breaks apart any attaching substances and rinses them away.

Doesn't all that sound fantastic? Well, if you're not thrilled yet, wait until you find out what soft washing is excellent for and how it can save you lots of stress, heartache, and money.

Why Is Soft Washing So Useful?

The use of all this fancy equipment and techniques must be for a particular purpose, right? You bet it is. Soft washing was created because some knuckleheads had to find out the hard way that standard pressure washing isn't the perfect solution for cleaning every exterior surface area. In fact, regular pressure washing is the last thing you want when it comes to cleaning certain materials because the jet stream of water that is let loose can cause severe damage. By damage, we mean things like paint getting stripped off, weather sealant getting torn away, chipping and cracking structure material, and that type of stuff.

Once the forebears of pressure washing discovered these catastrophes, the race was on to look for a safe solution, and soft washing was born soon after. Soft washing can clean surfaces without damaging them. But where and when should one use soft washing?

Soft Washing To The Rescue

Soft washing is best utilized on surface areas such as house sidings and shingles. Roof washing, for example, should never be done using standard pressure washing. Shingles can be dislodged, and water can be pushed through to places it really shouldn't be. Soft washing allows a professional pressure washer team to cover your entire roof with cleansing foam and eliminate contaminants such as algae, mildew, bird droppings, and more. Most of the time, there isn't a need to step foot on your roof either, and that alone removes the possibility of even more damage.

House washing needs the soft washing treatment because even though sidings may be durable, they're prone to damage from the force of water pressure. Paint can be stripped away, and weather sealant can be ruined from pressure washing the wrong way, but soft washing avoids these scenarios.

Hiring a professional soft washing service saves you time because you don't have to clean any surface yourself, and once cleaned, that surface will stay clean for longer. Soft washing also saves you money because instead of spending money on repair and replacement costs, your surfaces will be protected for a long time to come.
