When You’re Ready to Pressure Wash, Think Soft Wash

By | Soft Wash

When a property owner here in Portsmouth or Kittery sees dark streaks or spots on their siding, roofing, and/or sidewalk, he or she may go online and search for “Portsmouth pressure washing company.” But is a pressure wash the best option for your home or business property? First, you should know the differences between a power wash, pressure wash, and soft wash.

Pressure Wash and Power Wash: Similar but Different

pressure wash deckMany people consider a pressure wash and power wash to be interchangeable, and in fact, they are are very similar processes. Pressure washing and power washing both utilize specialized equipment that sprays high-pressure water to clean a surface. However, power washing uses very hot water, which can remove unwanted debris faster than pressure washing, which uses cold water.  When performed correctly, both power and pressure washing can be great for cleaning brick and concrete surfaces, like sidewalks and driveways.

Soft Wash: Getting to the Root Cause

As the name implies, soft washing doesn’t just “blast” away the accumulation of debris on a surface. To the contrary, it penetrates stains, sanitizes, and eliminates what is causing the surface to look dirty. A soft wash uses eco-friendly detergents that are phosphate-free and biodegradable. Because a soft wash is gentle yet effective, it is excellent for use on all types of siding, windows, and roofing.

Surprising Causes of Stains

What many people don’t realize is that the majority of discolorations that they see on their homes are not dirt; they are microorganisms. In a sense, your home is not dirty – it has an infection.  That’s why soft wash is so effective. The powerful detergents get to the root of the issue, killing the microorganisms that are causing the discoloration instead of just blowing off what’s accessible on the surface.
