Soft washing is the use of a combination of biodegradable chemicals and a low-pressure, non-abrasive water jet to kill harmful and unsightly algae, mold, and lichen, while cleaning off hard to remove dirt and discoloration. The low pressure water jet is unofficially described as any jet that you could safely put your hand in front of, whereas the high pressure jet will cause laceration and damage to uncovered skin.
High pressure power washing can cause permanent damage to all surfaces commonly found on and around your home. Not only can a high pressure jet damage and discolor vinyl siding, it can also shoot water underneath the siding, causing leaking and unseen damage.With wood, a high pressure jet can strip finishes, etch the soft pulp of the wood, and damage the lignin that holds the pulp together, and gives the boards their structural integrity. The high pressure jet can permanently discolor concrete, stone, and brick, and it can loosen and erode the mortar between bricks and stone.
While power washing certainly has its place in property improvement, there are many reasons that you may want to consider soft washing for your next home or business exterior, driveway or parking lot, walkway, or patio cleaning, and restoration. For both first time cleans and routine maintenance, soft washing has two significant advantages over power washing:
Terms, Conditions & Disclaimer:
Pressure washing may reveal imperfections in surfaces that were not visible prior to cleaning. Heavy build ups of mold, mildew, dirt, and debris may be hiding other problems, such as cracks, oil or rust stains, wood rot, flaking or missing paint.
Rust & Efflorescence Stain Removal:
Rust and efflorescence /calcium stain restoration services charged at a premium rate from the pressure washing. (inquire for details)

In every aluminum siding case and in some cases with vinyl siding, the sun and weather will dull the paint or cause fading. Power washing/Soft washing, which entails removal of chalky, gritty or failing surface materials may cause the faded aspects of the vinyl or aluminum to stand out. This is paint oxidization, and has to be removed by brushing the entire area to get a uniform look. Paint oxidation removal is charged at a separate rate. Checks for oxidization are done by homeowner, and we will test during on site quotes, or prior to washing, and if present, inform customer before proceeding.
Some stains cannot be removed by power washing or soft washing. Tree sap, artillery fungus, rust, fertilizer stains, splatters from stains and paints are examples of materials that cannot be removed by conventional means. We make every attempt to point these areas out to the customer when quoting the project. Sometimes these stains cannot be removed at all and requires repaint and or replacement, while some stains such as rust, efflorescence, battery acid stains can be removed with restoration chemicals.
