Benefits of Soft Washing

This upcoming autumn season is getting closer and closer, and autumn is the perfect season to have your home cleaned. The temperatures won’t be too extreme, and having the outside of your home cleaned is a great way to take care of the grime and dirt on your house before the cold winter days arrive!

Have you ever had your home or business pressure washed? Have you ever had your home or business soft washed? Have you ever even heard of the term “soft wash?” If you’ve never had your home soft washed or even heard of the term soft washing, we’re here to explain the benefits and why one might opt for soft wash over pressure washing or any other cleaning method. 

In this blog, we are discussing the benefits of soft washing your home or business.

The Benefits of Soft Washing Compared to Pressure Washing

What Is Soft Washing?

By definition, soft washing is a cleaning technique that uses low-pressure water to clean the exterior surfaces of a house. This method also uses different cleaning products to effectively get rid of mold, mildew, moss, bacteria, and other microorganisms that may be damaging your windows, roof, siding, or more! Take a look at this blog to learn more about soft washing and why you should consider it for your next home cleaning.

How Is Soft Washing Different From Pressure Washing?

Soft washing and pressure washing are very similar, but there is one main factor that differentiates the two. Pressure washing is a method of cleaning that is used with high pressure and can be used to clean things like mold, algae, cobwebs, and more. Soft washing is primarily used to clean the same surfaces but ensures that the materials of siding, windows, roofs, etc., are not damaged. 

Unlike pressure washing, which will dislodge materials loosened by decomposition and aging as well as damage roof shingles, soft washing will not. Pressure washing is more of a powerful blast to clean your home, while soft washing can be compared to washing your clothes on a delicate setting. Both are great options for cleaning houses, fences, solar panels, and more, but they’re different. 

What Are the Benefits of Soft Washing?

Soft washing is an excellent choice when it comes to cleaning your home, especially if you’re worried about the potential damage that can come from pressure washing. Usually, pressure washing is done on a home once or twice a year, but soft washing is gentle but thorough. So, if you need to wash your home more frequently than once or twice a year, we recommend soft washing!


Maybe your home is older, or your siding has had some damage from a storm, or your home is dirty but not dirty enough for pressure washing. If any of these descriptions apply to you, you should definitely look into soft washing! Soft washing is a great way to reduce the risk of damage to your home, clean up the dirt, mold, and algae, increase curb appeal, and more.

How Should I Know When to Soft Wash My Home?

Assessing your own home is the first step to knowing how often you should have your home softwashed. Take a walk around your home, and look to see how dirty your home is and what is on your home, and then maybe call a pressure washing company like Mobile Magic for an estimate.
