Soft Washing: What it Is & When Do You Need It

As you may have guessed from our name, we at Softwash Ranger, serving homeowners and business owners in and around Wayne, NJ, specialize in the soft wash method of cleaning exterior surfaces. Although we do use power washing and other methods when it’s necessary to do so, in many cases, soft washing is the best option.

What is soft washing? Why is it often a better choice than power washing? The following guide will introduce you to the topic, helping you better understand this method and its benefits.

What is Soft Washing?

Keeping Your Property in Good Condition

Regularly cleaning the exterior surfaces of your property is essential. This is true whether you own a home, a business, or both. Boosting curb appeal helps business owners attract customers and helps homeowners sell their homes in the future. Scheduling regular exterior cleaning service also extends the lifespan of roofing, siding, and other exterior surface materials, saving property owners a lot of money in the long run.

However, sometimes cleaning these surfaces isn’t as simple as power washing them. Many surfaces, including residential roofing and numerous types of siding, aren’t durable enough to withstand intense pressure. Thus, trying to clean them in this way would actually result in damaging them.

Our method involves applying water gently to your surfaces to clean them. By mixing the water with eco-friendly detergents, we ensure thorough results, without the risk of damage.

Surfaces That Require Soft Washing

There are many reasons it’s important to hire professionals to soft wash your exterior surfaces. The next section of this blog will cover some of them in greater detail.

That said, a key reason to trust the experts is the simple fact that many homeowners and business owners don’t know which surfaces require soft washing. The problem is, when there’s a chance the wrong cleaning method will damage your property, you can’t play any guessing games.

Surfaces that usually require this service include residential roofing, stucco, wood panel siding, wooden fences and decks, and windows.

However, those are merely a few examples. The fact that a material isn’t on that list doesn’t necessarily mean soft washing isn’t the best method for cleaning it. That’s why you should always contact experts when your exterior surfaces need to be cleaned.

Other Reasons to Hire Soft Washing Experts

Again, soft washing delivers such impressive results without requiring the application of high-pressure water because of the eco-friendly detergents we use. These have been designed specifically to remove the types of debris and contaminants that could otherwise accumulate in a wide range of exterior surfaces, improving their appearance and optimizing their lifespan. Thus, effective soft washing requires hiring industry experts who have access to these detergents.

Additionally, although soft washing is a much safer option when compared to power washing certain surfaces, it’s important to remember that using any type of major cleaning equipment can be somewhat risky if you don’t have the proper experience. You don’t want to harm your landscaping because you didn’t know how to use soft washing equipment safely. Luckily, that’s not something you need to worry about when you hire professionals.

You simply need to make sure you hire soft washing experts you can trust to do the job right the first time. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Softwash Ranger, serving homeowners and business owners in Wayne, NJ and the surrounding areas. We’re more than happy to provide you with testimonials from our other customers, helping you appreciate why we’re the right team for the job.
