What’s the difference between Soft Washing and Power Washing?

What is Soft Washing?

Soft Washing is not power washing. Soft Washing is an effective and gentle method that uses low pressure to apply a mixture of water and cleaning solution to the siding, which removes mildew, algae, moss and dirt buildup. Soft Washing is the safest and most thorough cleaning method available today.


What’s the difference between Soft Washing and Power Washing?

Soft Washing is a method that uses a pressure washer that has been adjusted to reduce the pressure of the water output but not the volume of water output. What that means is that the pressure washer still puts out several gallons of water per minute, but at a reduced pressure. No more than 300 psi.
Power washing can cause serious damage, such as dislodging siding or forcing water under the siding or soffits.

It is a misconception that high-pressure is needed to achieve clean siding. Generally speaking, the only time high-pressure is needed is for concrete cleaning.

Is Soft Washing safe on all materials?

Soft Washing is also safe for synthetic or composite decks.


How often should I have my siding washed?

Most siding manufacturers recommend a professional siding cleaning every 2-3 years. However, the frequency really depends on the local climate and environment. Humidity is a leading factor when it comes to mold and mildew. Also many houses develop algae growth, particularly on the north side of the home, which can be removed with our soft washing method
