Understanding Soft Washing: What Makes It Different and Effective

At Benjamin’s Pro Power Washing, we believe in using the right tool for the job. While pressure washing is a powerful cleaning method, it’s not always the most suitable option, especially for delicate surfaces. That’s where soft washing comes in.

Understanding Soft Washing: What Makes It Different and Effective

What is Soft Washing?

Soft washing employs a gentler approach to cleaning exterior surfaces. It utilizes a low-pressure stream of water combined with specially formulated cleaning solutions to remove dirt, mold, mildew, algae, and other contaminants.

Key Differences from Pressure Washing:

  • Pressure: The defining difference lies in the pressure used. Soft washing utilizes significantly lower pressure (around 40-80 PSI) compared to pressure washing (which can range from 1300-3000 PSI). This gentler approach minimizes the risk of damaging delicate surfaces like roofs, siding, and windows.
  • Cleaning Solutions: Soft washing relies heavily on specialized cleaning solutions designed to break down and loosen contaminants. These solutions are eco-friendly and biodegradable, ensuring the safety of your landscape and surroundings.
  • Application: Soft washing involves a two-step process. First, the cleaning solution is applied to the surface, allowing it to dwell and break down the contaminants. Then, a low-pressure rinse removes the loosened dirt and solution, leaving behind a clean and sanitized surface.

Why Choose Soft Washing?

Here are some compelling reasons to consider soft washing for your next cleaning project:

  • Safe for delicate surfaces: Soft washing is ideal for cleaning roofs, vinyl siding, cedar shake, stucco, and other materials that could be damaged by the high pressure of traditional power washing.
  • Effective against organic growth: The specialized cleaning solutions effectively target and eliminate mold, mildew, algae, and other organic matter that can discolor and damage your property.
  • Long-lasting results: By removing the root cause of the problem (organic growth), soft washing helps prevent future growth and maintains a clean appearance for a longer period.
  • Gentle yet powerful: Don’t underestimate the cleaning power of soft washing. While gentler on your property, the combination of low-pressure water and targeted cleaning solutions effectively removes dirt and grime.

Is Soft Washing Right for You?

Soft washing is a versatile cleaning method suitable for various applications, including:

  • Roof cleaning
  • Siding cleaning
  • Deck and fence cleaning
  • Patio and walkway cleaning
  • Driveway cleaning (for certain stains)
