What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?
Pressure washing and soft washing have the same goal-- clean your home's exterior surfaces. But they are very different in execution. Soft washing is a gentle alternative to the high force of pressure washing that uses soaps and detergents to clean surfaces. The soft washing application is used to clean a variety of more delicate outdoor surfaces, including delicate roof shingles, windows, screens and screened in enclosures, and patio furniture. Pressure washing, on the other hand, blasts water at a very high pressure onto a surface to clean it, usually without any other cleaning agents. This service is best used in driveway cleaning, patio washing, and other projects involving tougher materials and surfaces. Ask your pressure washing specialist at CLE Power Wash which one of these services is right for your Avon Lake home.

Can You Get Old Stains Off My Driveway?
Your driveway goes through a lot daily, and over time, the wear and tear can stain the concrete. You might have multiple vehicles rolling up and down your driveway every day, and if you park them, there's a risk of grease or oil dripping onto the concrete and leaving stains or discoloration. Specific contaminants like grease and oil can cause permanent stains, and pressure washing can help reduce their visibility. In a high percentage of instances, our pressure washing will remove most if not all traces of lingering blemishes on your driveway so it can return to looking good as new. In cases where the stains are too set in, at least cleaning the area will help improve the appearance and lessen the impact of the stain in the long run.
Should I DIY My Pressure Washing Projects?
Lots of people think they can safely use a pressure washer to clean their property. After all, how hard could it be to just spray water? Not hard at all according to some home improvement sources. But pressure washing is much, much more than simply spraying water. Without experience or knowledge, you can't be certain of the kind of results pressure washing on your own will give you. If you use a pressure washer the wrong way, you risk damaging your property, hurting yourself or your family, and environmental pollution.
If you use too much pressure for too long on a delicate surface, you could chip paint or dent vinyl. If you don't know what kind of safety precautions to take while operating pressure washing machinery, you can end up in the emergency room. Inexperienced washing can flush pollutants into your local water system or into your garden. Keeping your home or business's exterior surfaces clean does add value to your property. But your time is most valuable when it's used doing what matters most to you. So don't spend your weekends trying to learn how to use a pressure washer. Let the professionals take care of it so all you have to do is enjoy the results.
