What is power washing?

Power washing uses pressurized water to clean mold, algae, dirt, pollen, and other contaminants from outdoor surfaces. Pressurized water generates more force that effectively removes stubborn dirt immune to traditional cleaning methods.

Power washing vs. Pressure washing

Power washing is also called pressure washing. However, some professionals make a subtle distinction between the two. According to them, power washing involves using heated pressurized water, while pressure washing does not. But in general, power washing is an umbrella term that covers pressure washing.

The fundamental distinction is when comparing high-pressure washing to soft washing.

High-pressure washing

As the name suggests, in high-pressure washing, highly pressurized water is used for cleaning. This method is usually preferred when cleaning highly durable surfaces like concrete. These surfaces can easily withstand the force of this pressurized water. High-pressure washing can also be used to clean a deck before repainting. The strong force helps to remove loose paint and sunspots from the deck surface.

Soft washing

In soft washing, lesser pressurized water is used. This method is suitable when washing vulnerable surfaces like the roof or shingles. With cleansers and a soft bristle brush, soft washing can be used to remove tough stains from surfaces. 

Benefits of power washing

Because power washing is effective for removing stains immune to traditional cleaning methods, it offers several benefits. Some of which include:

  • Increasing property value

A single power wash will bring out the beauty in your house’s exterior and increase its market value.

  • Enhance curb appeal

If you want your house to stand out from the surrounding street, then a power wash is what you need.

  • Improve health

Power washing is very effective for removing dirt, molds, stains, and other allergens that can negatively impact your health.

  • Superfast

If you’re looking for a way to clean your property in the quickest time, then power washing is the way to go.
