. Soft washing versus pressure washing
Soft Washing is interpreted differently by different people in the pressure washing industry. Some view soft washing as just backing up a little further so the water pressure from their machine doesn't hit the surface they are cleaning"as hard". This though is not TRUE soft washing. Soft washing in its truest form is void of any hard damaging pressure. To get an idea of what is or is not hard pressure here are a few psi references. First, a small stream of water that is 100 psi or higher is strong enough to break human skin Did you know that the same pressure a salt water crocodile bites with (3000 psi) is the same amount of pressure exerted by many residential pressure washing machines! So ask yourself, do I really want the exterior of my home or building being hit with that much pressure? Why take the risk, this area now has soft washing services performed by Luxury Look. What does the soft Wash process entail? In a nutshell, the process first starts by applying multiple layers of detergents, surfactants, algecides and clinging agents to the desired surface. Once the combination of our cleaning solutions has had time to dwell and do its job of removing dirt and algae spores, we then follow it up with our soft washing water output machines that provide the surface with a safe high volume LOW pressure (40-80 psi) rinse. Our process cleans your home or building safely and leaves it looking beautiful much longer than just a traditional power wash service that uses hard damaging water pressure to blast dirt and mold off. By just taking off the visible layer of dirt and algea and leaving the inbedded spores behind the mold will be back in no time. Unfortunately, many refuse to move to the safer more effective results of Soft Washing simply due to the fact it cost them more to buy the needed equipment and cleaners, as well as the many hours of education and practice needed. At Luxury Look we don't mind spending the extra time and resources to soft wash because we will sleep better knowing we cleaned you home or building safely and that it's going to last you for a longer period of time.
