Our soft washing services provide a better, safer alternative to standard pressure washing.

When it comes to exterior cleaning, the method that most people are familiar with is pressure washing. This technique uses highly-pressurized jets of water to remove dirt and grime, and it is used to clean walkways, driveways, siding, brickwork, and more. What many people are not aware of, however, is that the water pressure used in pressure washing is often so intense that it damages the target surface—pressure washing has been known to strip paint off siding, crack or blast away roof shingles, and even crack concrete. If this sounds like a bad deal to you, you are not alone. Our team at Ocean Waves SoftWash has long been aware of the drawbacks of pressure washing, so we offer soft washing as a gentler, more effective alternative.

Pressure Washing

As you can probably guess, soft washing takes its name from the fact that it uses gentler, softer water pressure than is used in traditional pressure washing. Despite the lower water pressure, soft washing produces a more thorough clean and more long-lasting results because it addresses the root cause of dirt buildup—namely, the algae, mold, and mildew that trap dirt particles on your outdoor structures. Our team will first treat your surfaces with biodegradable cleaning solutions designed to kill these microorganisms, then use soft jets of water to wash everything away.

If you want to keep your property clean without running the risk of damaging your structures, just give us a call. Our soft washing services are safer and more effective than standard pressure washing, and we encourage you to give them a try.

FAQs About Pressure Washing

Our team has provided exterior cleaning services for commercial and residential spaces for over 20 years, and while we can provide pressure washing, many properties are better suited for our soft washing services. Wondering why soft washing might be the better choice? Check out the most common questions we answer regarding this topic below.

How does soft washing differ from pressure washing?

While pressure washing uses high-pressure water to forcefully remove stains and contaminants, soft washing relies on a gentler approach. It uses cleaning solutions that break down and eliminate contaminants without the need for intense pressure. Soft washing also lasts longer than traditional forms of exterior cleaning, which is better for the durability of your property.

Why is soft washing more effective than pressure washing for certain surfaces?
Soft washing is more effective for delicate surfaces like roofs, siding, and painted surfaces because it minimizes the risk of damage that high-pressure water can cause. On the other hand, the forceful impact of a pressure washer can easily damage those materials.
Can soft washing handle tough stains and contaminants?
The unique cleaning solutions used in soft washing are specifically formulated to break down and eliminate contaminants, providing a longer-lasting and more thorough clean compared to pressure washing alone.
Are there environmental benefits of choosing soft washing over pressure washing?
Soft washing is often more environmentally friendly. The reduced need for high-pressure water means less water consumption, and the cleaning solutions used are often biodegradable and less harmful to the environment compared to the chemicals sometimes required for pressure washing.
