Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions – Answered By Grime Fighters

Pressure washing is a great way to clean a variety of surfaces for your home or business. It’s versatile, effective, and uses less water than other cleaning methods. As useful as it is, it requires some experience and know-how to use correctly. If you live in the Rolla area and you’re wondering if pressure washing is right for your home or business, keep reading for answers to some frequently asked questions.

What’s The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

As the name implies, pressure washing relies on pressure for its effectiveness. This can range from 500 pounds per square inch (PSI) for softwood to 3,000 PSI for concrete. Soft washing, on the other hand, doesn’t utilize high pressure at all. It mixes water and environmentally friendly cleaners to gently soak away stains like mold, grime, and tree sap.

How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

Experts recommend house washing once a year to keep your siding looking its best. Stucco, vinyl, and brick accumulate a lot of stains over the seasons, and yearly cleaning helps keep you ahead of the game.

Is It Safe To Use High Pressure Washing On My Fence Or Deck?

As long as you use the correct nozzle, pressure, and technique, you can use pressure washing to clean many types of fences and decks. Some materials, like composite vinyl, need to be soft washed instead.
