Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Jason's Pressure Washing, LLC

As your #1 source of pressure washing in Newport News, we get plenty of questions about the pressure washing process every day. Many of the questions we get are more common than others.

Below, you'll find answers to some of your most-asked pressure washing questions.

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

The biggest difference between "soft wash" and "pressure wash" is the amount of pressure used in each technique. "Soft wash" refers to a pressure washing technique that uses little to no pressure to wash a more sensitive surface, relying instead on our environmentally-friendly cleaning solution to do the work. Soft washing is typically employed for house washing and roof cleaning.

"Pressure wash" refers to a technique that uses higher pressure in tandem with environmentally-friendly cleaning solutions to erase stains and grime from more durable surfaces. Pressure settings used during a pressure wash would damage sensitive surfaces such as siding, shingles, and windows. This is why we reserve higher pressure washes for surfaces such as concrete, brick, and stone.
