4 Surfaces You Should Soft Wash

middletown-soft-washingPressure washing is hands down the most popular form of home exterior cleaning there is. Although pressure washing is great for hard surfaces such as concrete or hard metal, it’s not always ideal for other surfaces. This is why the soft wash method is a better choice. Soft washing is a method in which cleaning solutions or detergents are are combined with low pressure water in order to clean more delicate surfaces that high pressure water would damage. In some instances the detergents are used in order to kill mold and algae as well as get rid of stains. with over a decade of professional experience the Middletown exterior cleaning professionals at Evolved Pressure Washing LLC strongly recommends that the following surfaces be given soft washing treatment.

Wood Panel Siding

Generally used as an alternative to vinyl siding, cedar shake or wood panel siding is installed around the exterior of your home and gives it a very distinctive look. It comes in a number of colors and textures, but at its core it’s a thin piece wood or plywood. Although wood panel siding is very durable and holds up to all types of weather conditions, ultimately it has a surface that can be damaged by high pressure water. Ultimately it’s important to choose the right solution and the right psi level in order to get the perfect wash every time.

Wood Fences and Decks

Most decks and fences are build with treated wood that is designed to last for several years and handle all types of weather conditioners without warping, or cracking. Since most fences and decks are painted, the external stain provides an another level of coating for added protection. High pressure water easily cuts through the stain and can even leave serious grooves in the wood. Once the surface of the wood is cut through, then it leaves it wide open to heat, cold, humidity, and rain which do not take long to hurt the wood. With  Middletown soft washing you can use solutions to kill the mold and algae that often develops on Decks and Fences, and use a pressure setting that doesn’t hurt the wood.


Although stucco material has other uses, it is primarily utilized as an exterior cement plaster wall covering. It is a combination of sand, cement, lime and water. Stucco has the best of both worlds, as it’s both strong and flexible. It also has a style that is different from vinyl or wood siding and generally comes in earthy tones or colors. Like wood, stucco has a surface that cannot withstand the impact of high pressure water.


Soft washing is the only truly acceptable form of washing for roofs. High pressure water can easily destroy shingles or weaken their adhesion to the

roof causing them fall off one by one. High pressure can also create cracks or open areas in the roof causing air and water leaks. Soft washing is always recommended for any type of roof whether it’s wooden, metal, or made of any other material.
