We are sure you have heard the terms power washing, pressure washing or soft power washing, before. While you might be tempted to believe they are used to describe the same cleaning process, let us tell you that this is not the case. Although similar, these washing methods involve different techniques, pressure and chemicals, and depending on the area you want to deep clean, one might be more suitable than another.
In Dublin, every Soft Power Wash comes with its own challenges
Soft Power Wash is Actually Handy
Both pressure washing and power washing utilize a stream of high pressured water to blast away dirt, mould, moss and other contaminants from a hard surface. The main difference between the two is the fact that power washing uses hot water for increased efficacy. The heating element makes this washing technique extremely suitable for “heavy-duty” tasks. For example, if you need chewing gum removed from your sidewalks, or oil stains from your driveways or garage floors, power washing could handle these kinds of jobs. The added heat is also helpful for eliminating weeds and moss and stopping them from growing back right away.
For regular freshening up of any of the outdoor areas of your property, especially after the cold season, pressure washing is the way to go. It uses the same powerful water blast as power washing, however, it doesn’t heat up the water. This means pressure washing is less harsh and can be used on those types of surfaces that would get damaged if power washed; for example, masonry, brick or asphalt. For areas affected by mould, tough stains or stuck-on substances, as well as any larger jobs, like commercial space, power washing works better, as the heated water helps loosen up the dirt faster and easier.
How do you know it is time for a Pressure Wash?

Upgraded Soft Power Wash in Dublin
Soft power washing is a cleaning method that uses a stream of low pressured water, combined with a mixture of algaecides, bleach, surfactants and biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solutions. Bleach is highly efficient in killing any mould and mildew spores, algae, moss, and any other plants or fungi growing on a surface. It also gets into and kills off any root systems in order to prevent further damage and to keep anything from growing back. Soft washing is used for safely cleaning surfaces of organic stains, mould, mildew, bacteria, algae, fungus, moss and more. Areas that are notoriously hard to get clean using the pressure washing technique, or that would get damaged if one were to use a power washer, should be treated using the soft washing method.
The main differences between power washing, pressure washing and soft power washing, are the level of pressure and the water’s temperature. Anything from 500 PSI (pounds per square inch) to over 3300 PSI is considered a power/ pressure wash. 500 PSI and below is considered a soft wash. The soft wash system normally consists of a higher concentration of cleaning solutions and a higher volume of water versus pressure. Application is gentle and usually, the solution is left on the surface in order to kill everything down to the roots, and then finally rinsed off. The water runs through a pump and hose with very little pressurization. The pump can also direct the cleaning solution mixture through the hose. Then the hose is directed at the surface being cleaned and the water mixture is sprayed out.

Expert Soft Power Washing, 100% satisfaction for you and your company
In the right hands, a power washer is a substantial tool that can deliver the right results, but the strength of a power washer can sometimes be too forceful to handle, especially on more delicate surfaces. For example, the intensity of the water stream can knock your roof shingles loose. The same goes for vinyl, cedar shake, or wood panel siding, which are all fragile materials and more vulnerable to force. While paver, brick and sand are a bit more resistant, they are usually held together by mortar and sand. A high level of pressure can damage these adhesives, knocking pavers, bricks, and tiles loose in the process. In all these situations the soft washing method is the better option. It is important to know the difference between soft washing vs power washing and which one is best for your home. Otherwise, you will end up with damages that may require expensive repairs.
