Soft Wash vs Pressure Wash for your Middle Tennessee Home

As a homeowner, you’re probably well aware by now that your decisions seem to be never-ending. From picking a paint color to deciding where to set your AC every night, you are constantly bombarded with overwhelming and sometimes tedious options. When it comes time to choose a company to clean your Nashville house, you’ll want to make sure you are deciding on a company that revels in the tedious details to ensure the job is done right. One of these details is knowing the difference between the methods of soft washing and pressure washing, and when to use them appropriately. Sound daunting? Luckily for you, we are here to explain these two methods and where they will best serve your needs. Pressure washing and soft washing may fall under the same umbrella of home cleaning techniques, but there are some sure differences between the two. When using the wrong approach for a particular problem, you risk damage to your structure or an unsatisfactory cleaning job.

Pressure washing is done using intense water under pressure (or PSI) that is intended to clean hardy and durable surfaces with heavily embedded contaminants. It is primarily regarded as the most effective method to remove loose paint or stain before a new coat goes on, ensuring the end result looks even and professional. However, this high pressure must be administered by a reputable and experienced company. If it is performed incorrectly, high pressure can be a likely culprit of structural damage to your precious home’s siding. Intense water pressure is also not recommended for roof cleaning jobs, as it can cause damage to shingles. All in all, pressure washing is highly effective if used professionally on the right projects with extreme caution.

Now let’s talk about pressure washing’s gentler cousin, the soft wash! Soft washing is the safest and most effective road to removing surface contaminants such as mold, algae, mildew and dirt. It utilizes a combination of safe levels of pressure and specialized cleaners to deliver a clean surface that will leave your siding looking spotless. Soft washing is also ideal for concrete less than three years old, as this ensures the new structural integrity isn’t compromised. In general, standard house cleanings are best completed with soft washing.
