Difference between DIY pressure washing and Professional Softwashing

September 21, 2023

DIY vs hiring a proffessional for pressure washing and softwashing

Utilizing a high-pressure water stream, DIY pressure washing involves cleaning a variety of surfaces, including siding, decks, and driveways, of dirt, grime, and other contaminants. Pressure washing is useful for getting rid of surface-level stains and grime, but it can harm other surfaces, such wood and fragile fabrics.

On the other hand, professional softwashing is a gentler and more controlled way to clean surfaces. With the use of specialist cleaning agents and low-pressure water streams, softwashing may remove impurities from surfaces without causing any harm to them. Cleaning sensitive surfaces, such as roofs and exterior walls, as well as surfaces that are vulnerable to the growth of mold and mildew, benefit greatly from using this technique. With a professonial you get many more benefits such as:

  1. safer for the homeowner
  2. Project can take 10x longer if done yourself. Professionals have the proper equipment necessary to accomplish the task in a resonable time
  3. More of your time back
  4. knowldge and experience dealing with multiple surface types and chemicals in order to safely provide a high quality result

In conclusion, professional softwashing is a gentler and more controlled technique of cleaning, whereas DIY pressure washing is a more harsh approach. The type of surface being cleaned, the intensity of the stains, and the amount of cleanliness that is needed will determine which of the two approaches is best.
