Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions: Answered By Alpine Home Services
What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing & Soft Washing?
Both pressure washing and soft washing are methods of exterior cleaning, but often these methods of cleaning are used on different surfaces. Pressure washing involves highly pressurized blasts of water that forcefully remove contaminants from the surface of your property, while soft washing uses a specialized blend of cleaning chemicals and less pressure to clean a surface without causing damage in the process. Soft washing is generally used for roofs, siding, and house washing, while pressure washing is used mainly for everything else.
How Often Should I Get My Windows Cleaned?
Generally we suggest that you have your windows cleaned at least once every 6 months. While your windows might not look dirty, the main threat—especially here in Florida—is the corrosive impact of salt. While this won’t do much to your windows themselves, it can cause a great deal of damage to your frames, sills, and molding, as well as any moving parts like your hinges and locks. A great deal of damaging buildup can occur in just a few months, so it’s important to stay on top of it.

Is It Safe To Attempt DIY Pressure Washing If I Can Rent The Equipment?
While it’s fairly safe to attempt a DIY pressure washing for some of the more durable surfaces around your home, pressure washing in general is often a task that’s better left to the pros. With a professional on the job, you won’t have to put your safety at risk trying to clean those hard-to-reach areas of your home. You also won’t risk damaging more vulnerable surfaces like your roof or siding in the process.
