Ever wonder what the difference between “Soft Washing” and “pressure washing” is? Have you assumed they were one and the same? We’ll explain the difference so you’ll be able to make an informed decision about whether you need a power washing service in Wesley Chapel or a detailed “Soft Wash service in Wesley Chapel.
What is Power or Pressure Washing?
With power or pressure washing, hot or cold water is used to remove dirt, mold, mildew and other foreign objects from the exterior of buildings, homes, and other surfaces such as fences, sidewalks, and driveways. Sometimes, using just water will not do the trick. In many cases professionals will tell you they have commercial equipment that is “powerful and can take anything off any service.” Well thats right, it will take off paint from your house, protective barriers from your roof voiding your warranty, destroy your screens, and loosen up window seals. Typically, the only areas we use any sort of pressure on are what we refer to as “Flatwork.” Driveways, Pavers, Sidewalks, etc. Even homeowners using their own pressure washer can damage or destroy areas of their homes without knowing it until its too late.
What About a Soft Wash?
At Pressure Points, along with power and pressure washing, we offer “soft washes” for homes and roofs and every other aspect of any property type. “Soft Washing” is where a more delicate and safe method is used to remove various surface stains, living organisms, debris, plant life, etc. from the home. We use a wide array of cleaning agents and solutions specific to the stain or organism, which are applied to the surface at low pressure and then also rinsed a much lower pressure than a power or pressure wash protecting the exterior of the surface. Hence the term “Soft Wash.”
Benefits of Washing
Washing exterior surfaces is beneficial for several reasons. For one it is an excellent preventative maintenance of mold, mildew, bugs, etc. When you get a power washing in Wesley Chapel, you clear your home of contaminants like mildew and mold, which help to extend the life of your roof, preserve your home’s paint to make it look cleaner and last longer, your animals will be safer due to less outside contaminants, and overall, your property will just be more beautiful and sanitary for your use and enjoyment. Another benefit is the increase in value and improved curb appeal of your home.
