Soft wash is an effective cleaning and protecting option for surfaces on residential and business buildings. Soft wash is a safe, protective technique for cleaning exterior surfaces without risking damage with other high-pressure and abrasive methods. Unfortunately, the combination of time and Mother Nature leads to dirt and debris buildup on roofs, siding, and other surfaces.

What is the difference between soft and power?
While the descriptive names “soft washing” and “power” give away the difference, it’s easy to underestimate how different the experience is for exterior surfaces. Both techniques use similar equipment to pressurize and distribute water combined with cleaning solutions.
Power washing does so with headed water at very high pressure: which is great for rugged surfaces and not much else. Soft wash utilizes a special low-pressure nozzle that gently distributes cleaners across roofs and other surfaces. The cleaners soak in and break up dirt instead of blasting it off with brute force.
Soft wash is better for which surfaces?
Power washing is viable on solid surfaces like concrete driveways and treated decks. However, power washing can easily tear off siding, destroy adhesives, and rip apart shingles. Since destroying a surface defeats the purpose of cleaning a surface, soft washing is a much better option for cleaning just about anything else.
Let’s take a look at the surfaces best served by soft washing:
- Roofs: shingles, cedar shake, and flat roofs are all perfect surfaces soft washing can clear of debris without damage.
- Siding: soft wash works well on stucco walls, vinyl siding, and wood panel siding without the damage risk associated with power washing.
- Tile: soft wash is gentle enough to avoid breaking tiles and lets the cleaning solution do the heavy work.
- Brick structures: whether the bricks are on your home or a freestanding structure, soft wash sufficiently cleans them without causing damage.
