Your Guide to Effective Playground Cleaning and Sanitation
Softwash vs. Pressure Wash
Pressure washing is the process of using a very high-heat and high-pressure water hose to remove debris from surfaces. Generally, pressure washing is recommended for extremely durable, solid surfaces, such as brick or concrete. When used on softer surfaces like wood, ceramic, or plastic, a full-on pressure wash runs the risk of causing deterioration.
Softwashing is the use of a special cleaning solution with a pressure under 500 PSI (still high pressure, but not quite as high as a traditional pressure wash). Unlike pressure washing, softwashing does not include extremely high heat. Due to its reduced heat and pressure, softwashing is an ideal solution for surfaces like wood, plastic, and ceramic. Because it utilizes a customizable cleaning solution, softwashing is still a very effective cleaning method despite its reduced heat and pressure.
