Our industrial machines pack a lot more punch than household units, and we always know which power washing methods to employ.
What Is Power Washing?
Power washing is a technique that uses highly pressurized and heated water and detergents to quickly and deeply clean. It is an excellent solution for efficient washing homes, commercial buildings, driveways, walkways, decks, patios, and even outdoor furniture while saving property owners time and energy. The specific methods employed depend on the type of surface being cleaned, the person doing the cleaning, and the machine being used.
What Is the Difference Between Power Washing and Pressure Washing?
It is common for the terms pressure washing and power washing to be used interchangeably. They both necessitate the use of a pressure washing machine and use high-powered water and cleaning solution to blast away at dirt and grime. That being said, it is also common for “power washing” to be used to describe the additional element of heat. Sometimes the term “jet washing” is used instead when hot water is used for a pressurized clean.
What Is the Difference Between Power Washing and Soft Washing?
While power washing utilizes high pressure settings (often 4,000 psi or higher), soft washing drops that pressure to closer to 175 psi to avoid damaging more delicate surfaces like roof tiles and siding panels. Soft washing with Westchester Power Wash does not use a pressure washer but a specific soft wash system. Professional discretion should be exercised when deciding which surfaces to power wash to avoid damaging the very things you are trying to clean.
The Benefits of Power Washing
Power washing is a powerful service that provides a quick and detailed clean. Because the water used is so highly pressurized, it can reach high or difficult to reach places, scrubbing them clean without the hassle of constantly remounting a ladder. It removes a wide variety of grime including salt, dirt, dust, pollen, gum, and grease. It can even blast away tricky and unsightly stains.
By using a combination of high-powered water and cleaning agents, power washing can rid your property of biological threats like weeds, mildew, moss, and mold in a matter of minutes. These harmful trespassers are no match, and you can save yourself the time plucking them off by hand. Regularly power washing is an excellent way to make sure a home is clean enough that these microbial menaces do not grow back.
Perhaps most importantly, power washing can save homeowners time and energy that would otherwise have been spent scrubbing away at noxious dirt. It is an effective process for many tough surfaces, including cement or concrete, even when they are heavily soiled.
