Soft Washing VS Pressure Washing 

Knowing the difference between soft washing vs pressure washing is fundamental to using the  right service to complete the project you are trying to achieve. 

What is pressure washing? 

Pressure washing, as its name implies is the channeling of a water supply through a high-pressure pump to force water out of a hose and nozzle at extremely high speed. It is most often used to forcibly clean hard surfaces of debris and stains when other cleaning methods fall short. 

What is soft washing? 

Soft washing is the process of using a particularly blended chemical mixture of sodium  hypochlorite (bleach), water, and a surfactant pumped with low-pressure water through a hose and nozzle. Soft washing is more often used in cleaning shingle roofs and glass windows that may be treated because damages to those surfaces are far less likely to occur than by pressure or power washing. 

When trying to determine whether soft washing vs pressure washing is the right approach to  completing your project, speaking to us at Ecolink will help you make an informed decision. 

Generally, pressure washing does not use chemicals to aid in the cleaning process whereas  soft washing uses the benefits of chemicals to apply the power to effectively clean surfaces.
