Types of Pressure Washing & Why They Matter

Posted May 10, 2017

We’re proud to serve clients from Eureka to Wildwood - and in the process, we’ve had the opportunity to work with virtually every type of property.

The takeaway? To deliver a superior cleaning service to your home or business, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. That’s why our team caters our services to address the unique needs of each surface we’re working with. We stand by this customized approach, and it’s important to understand why it matters - to you, to your home, and to the value of your property.

Generally, we break down our pressure washing solutions into two different approaches: Soft washing and pressure washing.

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing uses hot water, to expel water at a high PSI (pounds per square inch) on the surface it’s treating. This delivers a deep clean for:

  • Surface cleaning - driveways, sidewalks, entryways, patios, and more
  • Pool deck cleaning
  • Parking garage cleaning
  • Parking lot cleaning

Soft Washing

Soft washing is a low-pressure form of power washing. We pare down the PSI by half or more and instead rely on a meticulous cleaning process. This approach is a great solution for surfaces that can’t handle heavy force. We use it for:

  • House washing
  • Roof cleaning
  • Storefront Cleaning

Region-Specific Cleaning Service

We’re proud to live in our corner of Missouri - and whether you live in Chesterfield or Kirkwood, we have a solution for you. All our cleaning products are hand-picked to address the burden placed on properties in our region. This means that you aren’t just getting a classic pressure washing service - you’re getting a pressure washing service designed just for you.
