Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Powerwash Plus

As the #1 source of pressure washing in Highland Park, we see and hear plenty of questions daily about the process of pressure washing and soft washing. Below, you'll find some answers to a few of your most frequently asked pressure washing and soft washing questions.

What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

Both cleaning methods are utilized for different surfaces. If you accidentally use a pressure washer on a delicate surface, you risk causing damage to your property! Pressure washing utilizes a high-pressure stream of water to clean harder, more durable surfaces. Soft washing, on the other hand, forgoes the high-pressure stream for formulated detergents to clean more delicate surfaces.

Is It Safe For My Kids Or Pets To Play Outside After You Finish With Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing is safe, but it can make surfaces slick with water and detergents. If at all possible, avoid using walkways, steps, or other areas that are meant for foot traffic until these surfaces have been able to dry completely. However, because our cleaning service only uses eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaners, there's no reason to worry about breathing in any harmful chemicals after the service.

Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

While dirt can and will start to accumulate on your roof over time, a visible buildup can be something much worse and require our pressure washing service. Mold and mildew may have begun growing due to moisture and algae. At Powerwash Plus, we offer roof cleaning services, so don't let your roof become overrun with these stains!
