Soft Washing versus Pressure washing: The Pros and Cons

To begin with pressure washing, sometimes even called power washing is typically the spraying of water with extreme high pressure. To expand upon it, each minute of pressure washing sprays multiple liters or gallons of water. The pressure may even be high enough that it may cause injury if directed against an individual. Soft washing on the other hand of course uses low pressure, and instead uses soaps and other solutions and even surfactants in order to accomplish the cleaning process. Typically different equipment is used for each cleaning process but sometimes the pressure washer can, with a few changes, be used as a soft washer.
