So, how is soft washing better and different than high pressure washing?

To begin with, we use a power washer to soft wash your home and roof. This is the same power washer that is used to high pressure wash driveways and walkways. So, the difference is not the equipment, it is the nozzle we use and the amount of water pressure. To soft wash, we use very low water pressure hence the term soft washing. This eliminates the potential for your home or roof to be damaged.

With high pressure washing, massive amounts of water pressure is used to remove mold, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants. High pressure washing can give you immediate results that look good but this may last for a short period of time. High pressure washing blasts dirt and grime. Unfortunately, this usually causes permanent and irreversible damage. Besides damaging homes and landscapes, high pressure washing is known to spread spores onto other surfaces therefore spreading the mold, mildew, lichens, moss and fungus into air you breathe. This ultimately means your roof, home and other surfaces will need to be cleaned sooner and mold will appear worse than before thus making high pressure washing even more expensive than soft washing.
