Keeping residential and business roofing and exterior surfaces clean without damaging them requires using the right cleaning solution at the ideal pressure level. Power washing works well on concrete driveways and treated decks, but if you use it to clean a building, you may need to replace parts of the roof and siding.
Locally owned and operated, Lil’ Squirt Soft Wash is here to serve DeLand. Lil’ Squirt Soft Wash uses an alternative to power washing called soft washing. Soft washing gently clears dirt and removes debris from surfaces without the damage risk associated with power washing. Whether you need residential or business cleaning, our expert technicians are ready to help.
What is the Difference Between Soft Wash and Power Wash?
Soft and power washing combine pressurized water with cleaning solutions to remove dirt and debris. Power washing combines high-pressure heated water with cleaning solutions to force out the most stubborn dirt at the risk of easily damaged surfaces. While both use some same equipment, little changes make a big difference.
Soft washing uses a lower-pressure nozzle that gently spreads the water and cleaning solution across an exterior surface. This technique relies more on the cleaning solution than raw power to clean so it won’t tear up paint and adhesives.
Lil’ Squirt Soft Wash uses less pressure and adds a gentle cleaner, so years of dirt and buildup rinse off the exterior of your home. Your shingles, siding, and sidewalks will last longer while looking their best.
What Areas Does Soft Wash Clean Best?
As its name implies, power washing is all about using force to clean a surface, so it should only be used on surfaces that can withstand immense pressure. Because of its nature, power washing works best on the concrete and treated wood found in driveways and decks. The gentler soft wash approach is more appropriate for any other exterior surface.
The soft wash works very well on roofing because it doesn’t tear shingles, rip off cedar shake, or damage adhesives. The more delicate application lets the cleaning solution work its way into the surface to remove dirt and debris from a roof while protecting it from algae, moss, and mildew. Soft washing is also very good at cleaning vinyl siding, wood panels, and stucco surfaces. Even just a little too much pressure can cause extensive damage. Soft wash is also effective for cleaning exterior surfaces like brick structures, tile, and paver.
