Soft Washing Versus Power Washing

Soft Washing Versus Power Washing

We like to think of our company as a toolkit. Every property is unique, after all – and make sure we have all the tools to meet those needs.

Power washing and soft washing are two of the tools we use most. But although these services share a similar name, the application is actually quite unique. Understanding the purpose and benefits of each service is important as you map out a maintenance plan for your exterior. And our team is here to help!

Where Soft Washing & Power Washing Differ

First off, we’re going to introduce an acronym we use often in the pressure washing world: PSI, short for pounds-per-square-inch. PSI refers to the amount of pressure used in our cleaning service – how much pressure is exerted when we apply water to your exterior. This also determines a few differences:

  • High PSI vs. low PSI
    Power washing uses a high PSI to wash surfaces with force. It delivers a deep, powerful clean, and it’s especially useful for those really tough stains.
    Soft washing, on the other hand, uses a low PSI – typically less than half of what we use in power washing. This is useful for surfaces that can’t handle high pressure but still need a deep clean.
  • Hardscapes vs. houses
    Power washing is great for hardscapes – think sidewalks, driveways, entryways, patios, and pool decks.
    Soft washing is ideal for home exteriors and roofs.

One Key Similarity: Quality

There’s one overarching theme across our power washing and soft washing services: high caliber results. We do this in a few ways:

  • Top-of-the-line equipment
    Simply put: we invest in the best. Our power washing and soft washing technology is the finest equipment available on the market.
  • Powerful cleaning products
    We have carefully selected our cleaning products for every service – and they’re designed to break down everything from grease stains to mold buildup.

Your siding isn’t the same as your sidewalk. Your shingles aren’t the same as your entryway. So why should our cleaning approach be the same? With power washing and soft washing capability, we can tailor our cleaning approach to your property, your surfaces, and your needs.

Great service. Great work. On time every day. Fastidious about doing the job right. Completely cleaned up when job was finished. Will use SJ next time we have a home project!

Stanley was extremely professional and accommodated my last minute request. I requested shutter work and he responded quickly. I would definitely recommend this company.

Jeanette Davis

My neighbors used this company to have their shutters installed and I was very impressed with the results I had to give them a call for myself. Stanley came out with his guys and got my shutters installed and cleaned my gutters on the same day!
