Soft Wash or Pressure Wash: Which is Best?

Soft wash…

Pressure wash…

Power wash…

What does it all mean? And which one is best?

Don’t let all the lingo confuse you. All of these terms are part of the business and are utilized as techniques depending on what is being washed. At First Choice, we want you to be comfortable with and knowledgeable about what we are doing when we show up on your property. We utilize both soft washing and pressure washing techniques.

Check out this comparison chart of the two services:

Soft Wash

  • Low PSI
  • Soft wash detergents help break down the dirt, mold, mildew, and algae on a molecular-level which leaves your surface clean for much longer
  • Eco-friendly cleaning solutions
  • Better for “soft” surfaces such as: vinyl siding, stucco, roof washing, vinyl fencing

Pressure Wash

  • High PSI
  • Used for hard surface cleaning: concrete pathways, driveways, patios, decks, wood fencing
  • High pressure does most of the cleaning with mixture of chemicals

Hiring a professional company that knows how to utilize the tools for the correct pressure and type of cleaning is super important.  Hiring anyone else could result in costly damage to your property.  Many power washing “newbies” are not skilled enough to know when to use the different techniques.  

Safety can also become an issue if a tech doesn’t understand the use of high pressure tools and operating them from ladders, etc.  With our system, our technicians can do most jobs safely from the ground

Don’t get lost in the “lingo”-let the professionals at First Choice take care of all your power washing needs. Backed with our 12 month guarantee, make us your first and only choice!
