Exterior surface cleaning is a great way to keep both your residential and commercial properties clean. One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting a great clean is to invest in professional pressure washing. However, not all surfaces are safe for the pressure washing process.
If you have more fragile surfaces you’d like cleaned, the best cleaning option may be soft washing.
What Is Soft Washing?
Soft washing is the low pressure cleaning option often offered by professional pressure washing contractors. This cleaning process utilizes biodegradable, eco-friendly cleaners that break down mold, mildew, and bacteria on your more fragile surfaces.
These cleaners are applied in liquid format so they get into all the smallest nooks and crannies on the surfaces we’re cleaning. Once they’re done working, these cleaners are washed away with a gentle water-bleach mixture.
The water-bleach mixture we use is mild and won’t damage your lawn or contaminate your local water supplies. This mixture is applied to your home or business as a gentle spray, somewhere between 40-80 PSI.
Soft washing is a great cleaning option that is just as thorough as professional pressure washing.
What Surfaces Are Safe To Clean?
The best thing about soft washing is that it’s a thorough cleaning process that works well on any number of different surfaces. The surfaces most commonly washed with soft washing are:
Soft washing is the only safe pressure washing option for your house washing or roof cleaning project. This is because higher water pressures lead to gouging and other damages to your more fragile exterior surfaces.
Experts can help determine which surfaces are safe to soft wash. House washing and roof cleaning are two options that are exclusive to soft washing. However, it might not be as easy to tell which woods can be pressure washed vs soft washed.
Softwood is lumber that’s been cut from a coniferous or evergreen tree. These woods are frequently used as building materials. The trees that are a part of the softwood group come from evergreens, pine, cedar, or spruce trees.
If you aren’t sure if your surface can stand up to pressure washing, your best option is to call in a professional.
