The new “buzz words” in pressure washing

I’m sure by now you’ve heard some of the “new” buzz words in pressure washing, and you probably have some idea what they mean. But do you know HOW and WHY there is such an emphasis on these terms… It’s because doing it wrong can lead to damaging your house or, at the very least, having your wash last a shorter time than expected. Your home is probably your greatest investment and it is also a reflection of you. You want to take care of it so it looks good.

So let’s discuss some of those terms and what they mean:
Pressure washing:a method of cleaning which uses high-pressure hoses to blast away difficult to remove dirt, grime and mold. Sometimes also called power washing.

Soft washing:lower levels of water pressure are used to clean the surface instead of high pressure.Detergents and cleaning agents are used to clean.

A professional pressure washing service should be able to adjust the following when cleaning surfaces around your property. Feel free to ask about the following:

PSI (Pounds per square inch): This is the amount of pressure the person washing your house will use on the surface. A knowledgeable professional will know that the amount of pressure should be adjusted depending on what surface is being cleaned. For example, many commercial washers have as much as 4,000 PSI, but a roof should be “soft washed.” Here in Ocala, we use around 80 PSI on your roof.

GPM (Gallons per minute): The number of gallons per minute used in pressure washing is not the same as the PSI. This represents the speed at which the water comes out of the machine. The volume helps get the job done. The more gallons per minute, the faster the rinse.

The other factors involved in pressure washing your house are cleaning agents and heat. License to Wash is dedicated to using the correct chemicals for the job, and also using heat to help get your home clean. If you have ever tried washing greasy dishes with cold water, you should know how important it is to hire a professional pressure washer who can use hot water to get the grease stains off your driveway.
