What Is Soft House Washing

We’ve had plenty of customers ask us this question, and follow up with “But why does it matter?” The answer is important for every homeowner to know, and we’re pleased to share our knowledge:

In the simplest terms, soft washing is a safer, more effective way to clean the exterior surfaces on your property. Although soft wash house washing is most commonly used for house washing, the method is also an ideal way to attend to roofs, sidewalks, driveways, decks, and concrete surfaces.

High Pressure House Washing VS Low Pressure Soft House Washing

Traditional power washing methods rely on extremely high pressures to, quite literally, blast dirt and grime from your home. Unfortunately, this level of force can have unwanted effects. It isn’t uncommon for houses exposed to high pressure power washing to come out on the other side with cracked siding, leaks, dents, and other costly damages.

Soft washing uses a low pressure – picture the force of a garden hose – to gently yet effectively remove dirt, mold, stains, and other debris from your surfaces. This method relies on powerful cleansers, top-tier equipment, and an expert touch to achieve maximized results. And the team at Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & House Washing guarantees that your high expectations will always be met… Each and every time.

If you live in Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan or the Gold Coast, soft wash solutions for every facet of your property is just a phone call away. Whether your driveway is in need of a clean or your home exterior could use a face lift, we can deliver those exceptional results. Enjoy the peace of mind that your home is in good hands and will look spectacular when you choose Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & House Washing.

FAQ Asked By Our Customers About Soft House Washing

Q, Couldn’t we just rent the equipment and do the job ourselves?

A. Hiring a High Pressure Cleaning unit can be an expensive exercise, not to mention the hassle of having to go to the Hire Store in a vehicle large enough to fit the pressure cleaner, rush to finish the cleaning to avoid an extra days “hire”.  The right equipment and commercial chemical solutions are paramount to a safe and effective job. We have experimented with many chemicals over the years, and know the right chemical cleaning solution to use, whether it is commercial pressure cleaning, exterior house washing, roof cleaning or anything else external.

Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & House Washing will produce the best results that can be achieved with safe pressure washing.

Q. I already have a pressure washer, so why would I need your help?

Q. I was told that I could get my driveway cleaned for $59. Can you beat that?

A. Be aware of high pressure cleaners that don’t have the correct insurance, or use inferior methods and cheap “supposed commercial chemicals”. You will find that our methods and machinery produce amazing results. When you compare apples to apples, Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & House Washing has very competitive pricing.  We are happy to explain why our service is not only superior in results, but also equates to no damage.

Q. What are some things to consider when hiring a pressure cleaning, roof cleaning or house washing company?

A. Are you comparing a company that has high amounts of both general liability insurance?  Is the company buying high-quality commercial chemicals and cleaners, or are they having to compensate by turning up the pressure on their machines or going to a smaller degree angle nozzle?

Is the company confident that they will not force moisture problems into the house that could cause mold & mildew problems later? Our soft wash house washing system avoids such problems (NO HIGH PRESSURE, NEVER USE A PRESSURE CLEANER ON A HOME). Is the company confident that there will be no chips, gouges, splintering, breakage, or other damage?  Do they have happy and repeat customers?

Q. Why is pressure washing & soft house wash so important?

A. Pressure washing & soft washing is more important today than ever before as pollutants from industry, the atmosphere and combustion have increased the need. Regular cleaning not only enhances the appearance of buildings and prevents damage, but it also helps in delaying the need for expensive and time consuming restoration.

Commercial buildings should always look their best. Customers often judge abilities and reputation based on the appearance of the buildings. Not only will your customers be impressed by a clean look, but it will also maintain the value of the investment.

Q. Is soft washing house washing  good for my paint?

A. Soft house washing is the first and best method to ensure that the existing coating of paint will last longer. It is also the best way to prepare for refinishing or painting.

If you soft house wash annually, you will extend the life of your paint by at least 3 years, and often a paint job can last 10 years. It is much less expensive to soft wash than to paint.

Dirt, grime, mold and mildew can severely damage your buildings exterior and cause wood rot and premature fading. Regular soft house washing is the remedy. (Never high pressure clean painted surfaces)

Q. Does pressure cleaning & house washing kill mould?

A.  NO. One of the biggest misconceptions in the industry is that pressure washing will remove mold, mildew, and fungus. Although they may appear to be gone, mold spores will stay and continue to grow back rapidly, even through a new paint job. Only the use of a proper chemical will kill the mold and resist it from coming back. We are able to remove most kinds of green, brown and black streaking with our soft house wash process.

Q. What about stubborn oil stains?

A. We get great results when cleaning oil. Sometimes pressure washing will totally remove an oil stain. Other times, we will get spots as light and less evident as possible. There is a “next step” for stubborn oil stains that have thoroughly penetrated the porous concrete. It is an incredible dry cleaning method that will continue to dissolve oil. Please call and we will give you the details.

Q. Can Waterworx Pressure Cleaning & House Washing remove gum from the concrete?

A. Our high pressure washer will remove all of the gum residue with ease. Gum that has been on the surface for years is no challenge for us.
