Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing – Which one to choose?

House washing methods like soft washing and pressure washing rejuvenate your house and help it to look like new. It keeps harmful pollutants and other bacteria from building up, which can otherwise lead to expensive repairs and health issues. Let’s peep into 5 key distinctions between these two washing methods:

1. PSI level

For soft washing and pressure washing, the temperature of water used remains the same i.e., up to 140°C. However, in soft wash, the pressure of water is much lesser (500 PSI or Less) than that of pressure wash (1,500 to 4,400+ PSI)

2. Washing guns

In reality, the pressure washer itself is used to soft wash, but the washer nozzle is swapped with one that widens the spray, hence dropping the pressure.

3. Cleaning agents

Soft washing uses special washing solutions to break down dirt, grime, and organisms on floorings and other surfaces whereas pressure washing is chemical free. It uses only pure water and is an expert in cleaning deep grooves and cracks. 

4. Surfaces used on

Soft washing is used on surfaces of the house like cedar shake siding, wood panel siding, vinyl siding, outdoor wood furniture, outdoor rooted plants, screens, enclosures, and terraces whereas pressure washing is used to clean walking surfaces, decks, and stone pathways, patio furniture, etc.

5. Damage and Risk factor

Soft washing is less likely to strip off protective varnishes and coatings as compared to pressure washing. Also, Soft washing is eco-friendly whereas pressure washing might cause injury if mishandled.
