All home exteriors get dingy over time. Although there isn’t a magic wand to instantly banish years of mildew, soot, dirt, and grime from your home’s exterior, softwashing is the next best thing. There’s no doubt that a pressure washer will do the job. But pressure washing, also called power washing, takes careful skill and long hours of standing and reaching high and low to ensure satisfying, damage-free results.
Soft washing is a lower-pressure wash for deep cleaning outdoor surfaces, including home siding and brick, roofs, gutters, fences, decks, concrete, and more. A soft washer uses pressure similar to a garden hose but can dislodge dirt, mold, algae, and other stains without damaging the surface. Softwashing is typically done every couple of years for general maintenance or when preparing a surface for paint.
Tough stains and grime require special equipment or expert help, like soft or pressure washing. The primary difference between the two cleaning methods is soft washing is safe for fragile surfaces. In contrast, pressure washing is only appropriate for cleaning surfaces made of highly durable materials, including concrete. Another notable difference is soft washing kills stains and maintains clean surfaces longer.
Below are answers to the questions we get asked the most about softwashing homes, fences, sheds, decks, patios, concrete, and other exterior surfaces.
Many homes can go at least a year or two before they need to be washed again, but this varies depending on the type of siding, roof, or surfaces being washed, the amount of rainfall, and the surrounding trees. Regardless, soft washing lasts significantly longer than pressure washing since it kills mold, mildew, and algae at the root, helping prevent it from growing back.
If your home's exterior surfaces need a good cleaning, you might have considered doing it yourself. However, there are many reasons to hire a softwashing contractor. The first primary reason is spraying too aggressively could harm your home's siding or paint. Second, DIY pressure washing requires hours of standing, reaching high and low. Finally, you must stand on a ladder or scaffolding if your home is taller than one story. Hiring a professional might cost more, but it's safer, more efficient, and can give better longer-lasting results.
