Soft washing is ideal for cleaning surfaces made from delicate materials such as brick, wood, and fabric. This cleaning method utilizes a combination of heavy-duty cleaning solutions and low-pressure water.
When soft washing, you first need to saturate the surface with water. Then, use a soap dispenser to spray the cleaning solution on the surface. Allow the solution to sit for 10-15 minutes in order to loosen up all the dirt, dust, grime, and other unwanted substances. Use a soft wash system with 500-1,000 PSI. It’s best to start with a wider-angle nozzle and lower pressure level and adjust accordingly

In a park or recreation area, there will likely be a lot of surfaces made from such as steel, aluminum, and concrete. These are durable materials that can withstand a lot of abuse. Nevertheless, exposure to people and natural elements still makes them prone to dirt, dust, bacteria, grime, and other contaminants.
When working with durable materials, high-pressure water alone can be effective. However, feel free to first use a heavy-duty cleaning solution to loosen up stubborn stains and buildup. Use a pressure washer with at least 3,000 PSI to clean the surface area. For concrete floors and pathways, apply a sealant to protect them from further damage.
Suitable for: Barbecue Grills, Garbage Bins, Parking Lots, Basketball Courts, Tennis Courts, Swimming Pools, Baseball Bleachers
Power washing is very similar to pressure washing, except the former uses hot pressurized water. Since hot water can help clean a surface at a faster pace, it is suitable for cleaning large areas like a parking lot or basketball court. It can also be used to blast away germs and bacteria from barbecue grills and garbage bins.
Cleaning solutions such as detergents and degreasers are not necessary for power washing but can be used if desired. It can further hasten the cleaning process when working with stubborn stains and buildup. For this cleaning method, use a power wash system with at least 3,000 PSI. Keep a water temperature of at least 165°F to effectively kill germs, bacteria, mold, mildew, and other harmful substances.
