As a responsible homeowner, you want what is best for your home to ensure it lasts as long as possible and looks the best it possibly can. That is why it is important to understand the different types of exterior home cleanings available to you so you can make the best decision for you and your house.
The two most common forms of exterior home cleaning are pressure washing and soft washing. But what is the difference between the two? It boils down to the water pressure and amount of cleaning solution used in each type of washing. Pressure washing uses extremely high water pressure, usually between 1300-1700 PSI, or pounds per square inch. Soft washing foregoes that water pressure, usually only utilizing 500 or less PSI, and instead uses eco-friendly chemicals to get the job done.
How do you know which is the best for your home? The answer varies depending on what surface you are looking to have cleaned. Because pressure washing utilizes such high water pressure, it is best suited for extremely durable materials like brick, concrete, or rock. Pressure washing is commonly performed on sidewalks or patios instead of on the exterior of a house. Soft washing is better for most other materials and ensures surfaces won’t be eroded by extreme water pressure. It is best performed on materials like glass, cedar shake, wood, vinyl siding, and screens but the list goes on and on. If you’re still not sure, the good news is that most home care technicians are happy to provide phone consultations free of charge to ensure you get the cleaning service you and your home deserve.
