Guiding and tips on residential and commercial cleaning services
Using professional services for washing your outdoor areas can produce really dramatic results. Once completed, it looks great and it feels great.
Just imagine yourself watching the annoying layer of dirt washing away while exposing the clean surface of the driveway or house wall! It's a truly exciting experience.
You have probably heard about power washing, pressure washing, and soft washing. But what's the difference between them and how do you choose the right cleaning method without causing damage?
As the names imply, soft washing uses less water pressure, while power washing uses high pressure. Pressure washing also uses high pressure water, but the water used for pressure washing is not heated.
It's pretty obvious that the hot temperature used in power washing makes it easier to cut through grime and effectively clean surfaces. But can you use it on any surface? The answer is no.
Although for soft wash we use pressure washers, the water pressure is low. By replacing the tips with wider tips, we reduce the pressure to under 500 PSI.
But that's not the only difference. We also use dedicated eco-friendly cleaning solutions that remove dirt and various organisms from the outdoor surface without harming the protective coatings
Soft washing is great for wood, vinyl, cedar shake siding, outdoor rooted plants and more.
Pressure washing is an extremely effective cleaning solution that doesn't require heating water.
The problem is that the high pressure that is generated by the machines is high enough to be dangerous. They may cause punctures, bruises, lacerations and eye injuries.
Operating pressure washing machines requires knowledge and experience. Pressure washing may be fine for cleaning walking surfaces, decks, stone pathways, or patio furniture, but they can cause damage to home sidings. Too short distance from sidings and you can wear down vinyl sidings or wood shingles.
In the right hands, pressure washing can be highly efficient. It all depends on who is operating it.
Power washing is actually pressure washing with hot water. The benefits are significant. Power washing not only cleans but also sanitizes surfaces.
Being very common for commercial and industrial cleaning assignments, the power cleaning machines are heavy duty machines. Without proper training they can be extremely dangerous!
Power washing is used mainly for outdoor cleaning of driveways, stone walls, and rough concrete. The water can reach up to 311°F temperatures, which is above boiling point.
Cleaning the outdoors of a home or workplace is a challenging, dangerous and time consuming job. It takes a long time, it requires special equipment and above all, it requires knowledge and experience.
Using a professional washing service can prove to be a great idea! It's safer, it's cost effective and the job will be completed without causing any damage.
