Learn the differences in our cleaning services and which would be right for you.

Pressure Wash

Pressure washing is the use of high pressure water with over 1000 PSI to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from buildings and concrete surfaces. When you think of exterior cleaning, this is typically what comes to mind.

Pressure washing is best used on driveways, parking lots, sidewalks and walk ways, concrete, patios, exterior stairs, brick, metal fencing, pavers, and trailers because its high pressure requires sturdy materials to be cleaned.

Power Wash

Power washing is the combined use of high pressure water and high pressure temperatures to clean mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from concrete surfaces. Power washing uses water that is over 1000 PSI and over 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Power washing is best for concrete and bricks with left on stains and natural weathering. The combination of high pressure and high temperature helps fight those tough to clean and unsightly stains.

Soft washing is the use of water at a low pressure with a specialized cleaning solution to safely remove mildew, bacteria, algae, and more from more delicate materials like roofs and wood. Soft washing includes any cleanings with water that is under 1000 PSI, much like a shower or garden hose would feel.

Soft washing is best used on roofs, vinyl siding, stucco, cedar shake siding, outdoor furniture, screens, and wooden fences and outdoor play sets.

What are the differences?

The biggest differences between the three types of cleanings we offer are the level of water pressure and the water temperature. Those differences make each cleaning more effective on different types of materials.
