The Difference Between Soft Washing, Power Washing & Pressure Washing
Wondering what the differences are between soft washing, power washing, and pressure washing and which to use for roof cleaning and other exterior cleaning? Get the information you need below from our pros at Saccarappa Exterior Cleaning, your expert Portland pressure washing company.
Power Washing & Pressure Washing
Power washing and pressure washing are the same thing, so you will often hear these terms used interchangeably.
However, there is a big difference between the pressure washing machines you can get as a homeowner and those used professionally. For instance, ours can literally strip paint off marine vessels and metal or cut through concrete.
Still, you can very seriously damage your home's asphalt shingles, wooden deck, roof, and siding with a home-grade pressure washer. It pays, then, to hire an experienced pressure washing company who knows what setting to use for roof cleaning and on the different surfaces of your house.
