The Benefits of Soft Washing

Soft washing is a process that gently cleans and maintains your home’s exterior through the use of soft water, low-pressure cleaning, and a biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solution. This is the only recommended cleaning method for exterior surfaces such as vinyl, stucco, asphalt shingles, and more. A pressure washer utilizes high pressure to strip a surface of its containments, which can cause permanent damage if the surface is delicate, like the ones mentioned above. The First Response Pressure Washing team has a wide variety of soft washing equipment and biodegradable detergents that can clean virtually any surface without the potential for permanent damage to them. Here are a few benefits that soft washing provides:

Safe on Delicate Surfaces

Pressure washing can cause serious damage to surfaces that aren't hard or sturdy. Soft washing doesn't utilize pressure, but rather a low-pressure stream of water with cleaning detergents that gently removes all contaminants, without the risk of damaging the surface.

Increases the Lifespan of Your Home

Allowing algae, dirt, mildew, mold, pollen, and more not only makes your house unsightly, but it can actually decrease the lifespan of the surface it is growing on. Soft washing is the best way to remove these containments and extend the life of your house.

Improve the Health of Your Family

Mold and mildew can quickly spread from outside your property to the interior, especially if it's damp. The bacteria may cause various health problems, such as respiratory problems. Soft washing can ensure that your property exterior is free of these contaminants.


When you soft wash your home, you are improving its appearance and being conscious of the environment by utilizing biodegradable cleaning solutions and saving over 50% more water than traditional pressure washing.

What Surfaces Can You Soft Wash?

Soft washing can be used on any surface with the proper technique and cleaning solution ratio. Typically, soft washing is used on delicate surfaces that high pressure would damage, such as vinyl siding, asphalt roofs, cedar shake, stucco, and more. The application for soft washing doesn’t stop at delicate surfaces, though. At First Response Pressure Washing, we utilize soft washing even when we pressure wash surfaces like concrete driveways, retaining walls, and more. We do this because, in combination with pressure washing, the level of cleanliness achieved is much higher. In addition, the biodegradable disinfecting cleaning solution kills any organic matter like algae and helps loosen up compacted dirt, making the pressure washing process more effective. The following are surfaces we utilize soft washing on:
