What Are the Differences Between A Standard Power Washing and A Soft Wash?

One of the greatest benefits of working with a professional power washing company is that we have access to Soft Wash methods to keep your property safe and undamaged. What are the differences between our standard power washing and Soft Wash services?

Power Washing

When we power wash a surface, we are blasting a very high-pressure stream of liquid to remove dirt and grime. The pressures we use here vary greatly from surface to surface. Most standard pressure washing jobs involve pressures ranging between 2,000-4,000 PSI. You should be extremely careful at the higher end of that range, as the only real reason to venture that high is for paint removal. Additionally, using unreasonably high pressure can void the warranty of fences, decks and siding.  Even the lower end of this pressure range can cause damage to certain surfaces. That’s where Soft Wash comes in!

Soft Washing

For Soft Washing, we dial the pressure back to ~500 PSI. This pressure is perfect for avoiding damage while still thoroughly cleaning in the event that the standard garden hose doesn’t have enough oomph to lift heavier staining. If you have composite decking/ siding/ fencing or certain areas of your home are experiencing paint chipping already, you should be sure to choose a power washing company that has extensive experience with Soft Washing

Which Method is More Effective?

As you can see, each power washing method has its own specific use cases and benefits. While your sidewalk can hold up to a standard power washing, your windows probably don’t stand a chance. That’s why we use both methods at every job! Compared to other power washing companies, Peak Power Wash can deliver particularly shocking results with Soft Washing. That’s because we know the secret to Soft Washing lies in the chemistry of detergents. We consistently strive to use the most biodegradable, environmentally friendly and effective cleaners available.
