Soft Washing vs. Power Washing: What’s The Difference?
This method is gentle on surfaces that can’t withstand the intensity of pressure washing.
With this technique, special nozzles are placed on the end of the pressure wand. This reduces the pressure from the thousands in psi to something that resembles the pressure that comes out of your garden hose.
Does it still clean if the pressure is that low?
Yes! This is because, with the soft wash method, the high psi level isn’t what is actually doing the cleaning.
Instead, specialized detergents are what kill the algae, mold, moss, and other contaminants. They also remove common allergens and stains. This method cleans thoroughly without damaging more fragile surfaces with high psi levels.
Think of this like you would think of dry cleaning your clothes. Some cleaning methods are much harsher on delicate surfaces and require a gentle touch.
This method uses the force of highly-pressurized water to blast dirt and grime off of surfaces. The psi levels can be up to 4000 psi.
This is more suited for driveways, patios, and sidewalks because their surfaces are more tolerant of the high psi levels.
Pressure and power washing are mistakenly used interchangeably. These are two different things and each has its own purpose. Pressure washing uses unheated water while power washing uses heated water. Power washing is good for surfaces that might need a little more cleaning power, just like washing your hands or doing the dishes. Heated water cleans better than unheated water. It’s not always necessary, though.
The key difference between these three popular techniques is the agent that is used to clean the surface. The soft wash process involves environmentally friendly chemicals. With the two alternatives, however, the water pressure is what cleans the surface.
We don’t just use the pressure washer to blow everything away! There are times when we need to take a more gentle approach.

Driveways, Patios, and Exterior House Cleaning
The exterior of our homes and businesses is what gets the most pounding when it comes to dirt, mold, mildew, allergens, and other harmful environmental agents. You may not think that there is a point to having the exterior of your home or business cleaned since, well. It’s outside! That’s totally understandable but that’s not true.
Many people don’t understand the importance of keeping the exterior of their homes clean. Not only for aesthetics but for your health as well! Just like you would get rid of dirt and allergens on the interior of your home, the exterior also needs some attention! You would be surprised how the cleanliness of the exterior of your home influences the cleanliness of the interior and affects your health. Just sitting outside enjoying an evening while sitting next to siding that has mold and mildew growing on it can be hazardous to your health! Many of the substances that get into the home are on the concrete in your driveway also.
A pressure washer can quickly restore the exterior of your home to its former beauty.
Over time, your driveway can get really dirty. Stains from vehicles such as oil and other debris and fluids can really make your driveway look dingy and dirty.
Not only do stains and other debris make your driveway look bad, concrete driveways become worn down from extreme heat and cold. The stress of winter with the accumulation of road salt also contributes to the deterioration of your driveway’s condition. Left unwashed, stains can weaken your driveway and lead it cracking, discoloration, or other deterioration.
Curb Appeal. Studies show that having a clean driveway, walkway, and sidewalk in front of your home can increase your home’s value by $10k, maybe more depending on the size! Why invest time and money in making sure that your siding and roof look great and then leave your driveway dirty? Make sure your driveway doesn’t become an eyesore even if you’re not selling your home.
Are you ready to restore your driveway with a professional power wash? We can make your driveway sparkle like it did when the pavement was first laid.

Patios are a great place for friends and family to get together and create memories. The patio is often where a family spends time in nice weather celebrating birthday parties, barbeques, and more!
It’s very simple to get your patio cleaned. All you need to do is call us and schedule a time for us to come out and get the job done. You don’t even need to be home when we’re there! We guarantee your satisfaction with the best results possible using our safe and effective processes.
One service can make your home look completely different. With help from our professionals, your home can look like the best one in the neighborhood with curb appeal that’s out of this world!
Often, people report that they were originally thinking about replacing their siding. They don’t think that a wash can take care of green stains from algae and the black streaks from the buildup. These create an eyesore and seem very permanent.
It is very important to maintain your home’s curb appeal and property value. Spending tons of money on a siding replacement isn’t always necessary unless there are structural issues with the siding itself. Our team has a better way.
We use a soft washing technique to clean your exterior without ever damaging it. Using high psi levels to clean can damage your exterior, windows, and screens. It can even cause water to get into places it shouldn’t be such as behind your siding and cause mold and mildew problems in the future.
We use a gentle technique with psi levels lower than 500 to gently go over your home and wash away the harmful substances sticking to your siding.
