Soft Washing or Safe Washing?

Soft washing is the preferred, reliable, and safe method of cleaning your homes’ siding material, roof, and any materials that could be damaged from a direct and high-powered pressure applied to it. Soft washing is the process of just as the title explains, a SOFT application of chemicals through usage of low-pressure method of water and chemical mixture delivered to the surface. These chemical mixtures can be a variety of different setups and delivered through a copious number of methods like pump-up spraying, handheld sprayers, 12v battery powered pump and a lastly, a pressure washer with the professional training and knowledge of how to use this equipment without harming your property, causing damages that will cost more than the services initially performed.

Pressure Washing Tips for the DIYer:

Pressure washing is the reverse of soft washing in the terms of how the cleaning process is applied. Pressure washing is the use of high-pressured water to clean a surface. A common practice when doing flat work or hard surfaces like concrete, pavers, or surfaces that are not prone to damage from high pressure applications when performed correctly. Pressure is a must when dealing with driveways, concrete pavers, and patios to knock off any soiled layer on the surface to prep for another process with the surface called “sealing”.

Soft Washing Process and Preparation

Soft washing is a soft, low-pressure application of chemicals to get your desired finished results. There are different methods to achieve the chemical mixtures to clean, eliminate, and neutralize the growth on your home. The larger the surface area and dense of growth you have on your home will determine how strong of a chemical application. The chemical ratios can be as strong as a 1:1 or 8:1 of common chemical you will see such as “Pool Shock”.
