When Should You Use a Soft Washing vs. a Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing is a great way to knock away harsh, stubborn messes, but it's not always gentle enough for all applications.

And soft washing is a great way to get your home looking great, too, but it's sometimes TOO gentle for certain applications.

So, it's important to know the proper applications for both washing methods so that you can get the best cleaning without causing any damage. If you don't know what those applications are, just read our quick, handy guide that follows:

Power Washing for Hard, Heavy Installations

As its name implies, a power washing is -- well -- powerful. So, it's not the best thing to use on installations that are made up of small, delicate pieces. Instead, you'll want to use a power washing for sturdy, solid installation:

  • Concrete
  • Brick
  • Asphalt
  • Swimming pools
  • Decks

Soft Washing for Your Delicate Installations

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are your installations that are not so hardy. And it's for these installations that you need to use a soft washing. Soft washing uses low pressure and effective chemicals to clean your more delicate pieces without causing damage:

  • Roof
  • Siding
  • Painted pieces
  • Fencing
  • Wood
