When looking for effective cleaning methods for your Port St. Lucie home, it eventually comes down to two solutions: soft washing and power washing.
Both soft washing and pressure washing are excellent ways to eliminate stubborn stains, clean up mold and algae, and restore your curb appeal. However, what’s the difference between these two methods, and which one is a better option for your residential or commercial property?
What Is Power Washing?
A power washer uses a high-pressure stream of warm or hot water to clear accumulated dirt, grease, and other impurities from outdoor surfaces, including decks, driveways, walkways, and garages. The combination of high water temperature and high pressure makes it better at blasting away stubborn stains from various surfaces.
Power washing is perfect for removing mildew, mold, and salt residue from patios and driveways and chewing gum from parking spaces and garage floors.
It is also helpful in controlling moss and weeds. The powerful blast of warm water can destroy them and prevent them from coming back right away.
When Is Power Washing The Best Option?
Power washing is perfect for removing mildew, mold, and salt residue from patios and driveways and chewing gum from parking spaces and garage floors. It is also helpful in controlling moss and weeds. The powerful blast of warm water can destroy them and prevent them from coming back right away.
Any other surface around your residential or commercial property with a durable material covered in stains could be a candidate for power washing. It is also an excellent method to clean contaminants and build-up fungi from most types of exteriors.
What Is Soft Washing?
Soft washing uses a low-pressure technique together with bleach, algaecides, and surfactants to safely clean surfaces of algae and mildew. The spray is softer, with special nozzles and lower PSI that reduces pressure.
When Is Soft Washing The Best Option?
Soft washing is an ideal option for cleaning delicate surfaces that otherwise would get damaged with high pressure, including wood paneling, screens, roof shingles, and windows.
The combination of chemical solutions is effective for breaking down the build-up moss, algae, and mold. These harmful substances thrive in humidity and spread out, causing significant damage to your roof and shingles. When the roof is damaged, it loses its ability to insulate your home, leading to higher utility bills.
Soft washing is perfect for vinyl, painted siding, aluminum, masonry, stucco, stone, and brick. It is also safe for seals and glass.
