The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing

Difference between pressure and soft wash

We know that many of you have heard of pressure washing. However, how many have heard or read anything about a process called "soft washing"?

Soft washing is a term that's rarely heard unless you, or someone you know, has some knowledge of pressure washing. We hear from many clients daily who are just hearing of soft washing and want to know the difference between the processes. We covered the difference briefly on our Frequently Asked Questions page, but today, we'll go into a little more detail.

On the surface, both processes look the same. After all, they both use pressurized water to erase stains to some degree. However, there's one key difference, and that key difference is pressure itself.

Highly Effective Cleaning With Little To No Pressure

Soft washing is a process that doesn't use nearly as much pressure as general pressure washing does to clean a surface. In fact, it uses no pressure at all at times to achieve its means. When a soft washing is performed, the tech relies more on the use of environmentally safe cleaning solutions and gentle scrubbing to break down and erase stains and grime. We also use demineralised water as part of our soft washing process.

As a result of the lighter pressure settings used, soft washing is ideal for:

Turning Up The Pressure For Maximum Cleanliness

General pressure washing makes use of higher pressure settings to blast away stains, but they're still gentle enough to cause no harm to your exterior surfaces. To achieve a maximum clean, we still use demineralised water, gentle scrubbing, and environmentally safe cleaning solutions in tandem with higher water pressure.

Because of the higher pressure, general pressure washing is not recommended for more delicate surfaces. We instead reserve pressure washing for surface cleanings such as:

  • Patio cleaning
  • Driveway cleaning
