Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Luffman's Pressure Washing

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

Pressure washing and soft washing are two separate cleaning options for your outdoor cleaning project. Each option has its own benefits for whatever project you're thinking of starting.

Pressure washing is the process of spraying a surface with highly pressurized water to clean away dirt, grime, and debris that builds up over time. This option is perfect for harder surfaces like concrete, hardwood, or brick.

Soft washing is utilized for softer, more fragile surfaces like softwood, siding, and shingling. Soft washing utilizes eco-friendly, biodegradable chemical washes to break down dirt, grime, and debris on your softer surfaces. These chemicals are then washed away with a water-bleach mixture that is often sprayed on with a low water pressure to sanitize your surfaces.

Why Should I Consider Sealing My Concrete Surfaces?

Sealing services are an important part of caring for your concrete surfaces. Sealants help your concrete surfaces from fading and help to protect your concrete from staining.

Concrete is made up of a porous material. This means that stains easily settle into the pores of your concrete and are hard to clean away. By investing in a sealing service, you're sealing these pores to avoid damages in the future.

Do You Use Harsh Chemicals In Your Exterior Cleaning?

No. Luffman's Pressure Washing utilizes eco-friendly, biodegradable chemicals in our soft-washing services, which ensures your home gets the best clean possible without negatively affecting your family or the environment. We pride ourselves in using gentle chemicals to clean and sanitize your surfaces.

How Often Should I Have House Washing?

Most pressure washing professionals concur that, for the best results, you should engage in a professional house washing service once a year. This is a great rule of thumb to abide by to keep your home in tiptop shape.

However, if you notice streaking on your siding or dirt build-up, you can always engage in house washing at any point in the year to ensure you're taking care of your home.
