Pressure washing is the standard form of surface cleaning that dispenses water mixed with cleaning solutions at a high rate of force to remove grime and other unsightly substances off of a surface. Soft washing differs from regular pressure washing because instead of using high pressure, this treatment utilizes low water pressure but a higher concentration of cleaning agents. Soft washing gently showers a surface area, and the robust cleaning solutions break apart contaminants and other substances so they can be rinsed away safely.

There are many surface materials that could be severely damaged by pressure washing, and they should receive soft washing instead. To ensure your property gets the best pressure washing treatment, always refer to the experts.
