Although most people have heard of pressure washing, those tremendously strong jets of water aren’t right for every surface. Pressure washers are powerful enough to dent siding and disrupt electrical wiring when used incorrectly, which is why many professionals use a process called soft washing. Here is a brief guide to soft washing, and why you should ask for it by name when cleaning some components of your home or yard.

Understanding Soft Washing

What Is Soft Washing? 

Water is administered through standard pressure washers, but with the settings adjusted to release liquid at a slower rate. By spraying water at less than 500 psi, professionals clean surfaces without causing damage to paint or nearby structures. In addition to turning down the pressure on the device, professionals can also transform existing pressure washers into soft washers by switching out the tip at the end that controls the flow of the water. Soft washing uses a higher pressure of water than what a standard garden hose could create, but far less pressure than traditional pressure washers. It is the only process that should be used to clean surfaces like asphalt shingles, garage doors, and areas around windows.

What Happens During Soft Washing?

Before the area is cleaned with water, a mild soap and bleach solution is sprayed onto the surface of the home, and the area is allowed to rest while the cleaners break down the stains. Afterward, professionals use a soft washer to gently spray down the home, leaving your house clean and beautiful.
