Power Washing Vs Pressure Washing

Many Bear Delaware homeowners ask us what the difference between pressure is washing and power washing and which one should they do? While there are many similarities there are some small but significant differences but before we break it down let us help you understand the basics.

Pressure washing is the results derived from a pressure cleaner, the machine provided a constant blast of water at a high pressure that removes dirt and other debris from exterior surfaces such as decks, patios, porches, fences, and concrete. On commercial sites our machine will blast away dirt from public venues such as parking garages. We also use the machine on concrete buildings, but we do not recommend pressure washing your home exterior facades as over time pressure washing can damage your siding and bricks. Instead, we recommend soft washing.

The difference between pressure and power washing is pressure washing is heated water. When you use hot water, it will remove more serious grime especially mildew, oil and grease the same way we use hot water to clean our dishes. Since power washing can more easily wash spaces from debris its recommended-on surfaces such as concrete which will not be damaged by the blast of hot water. However, both machines will create a powerful stream of high-pressure water.

The average Bear Delaware household only needs to use pressure washing, its less harsh on surfaces making it idea for your fences, patios, porches, and concrete. However, for larger commercial spaces we recommend using power washing when cleaning hard surfaces as the force of hot water can damage softer surfaces. Whichever type of cleaning machine you choose to use keep in mind that if you do not know how to use the equipment properly both machines can end up damaging your home or place of business. It’s always better to be safe than sorry and hire an expert such as Bear Delaware best pressure washing service EvenFlow Services.

Soft Pressure Washing vs. Pressure Washing

The two most common services Bear Delaware homeowners request are soft washing and pressure washing but few understand what the difference is between the two. When EvenFlow pressure wash a driveway, patio or other exterior surface our machine is pushing out water at a high PSI, this water if not careful can cut through a finger to the bone in a millisecond. The water can also carve a pumpkin or descale a fish. This is one reason we advise homeowners who do not know how to use the machine to take extra safety precautions or call us to Pressure wash your high trafficked areas such as decks, patios, stone pathways, driveways, sidewalks, pool decks and even patio furniture. If the surface is hard but has deep grooves that allow dirt to be embedded, then use a pressure washer to clean away the debris. On softer surfaces we recommend soft washing.
