Notably, washing is more cost-effective compared to painting and restore the appearance of the house, just like the expected results with painting.

This article exclusively evaluates soft washing and painting as the options for making a house appear appealing and attractive. Should you soft wash or paint? Keep reading to get some more insight.

Soft Washing SLO

Do you absolutely have to paint your house?

It is incredibly ridiculous to say you want to paint your house because it's dirty. Painting a home is done when you intend to change the color of the house completely. You can't paint a house to have a fresh-looking environment unless the color coating looks unpleasant.

Most often, when people realize the house color coating looks unpleasant, they hire pressure washing services which usually has the ability to restore the good looking and presentation of a building into more professional and presentable. But with pressure washing comes the danger of damaging your paint more, which ends up in a paint job.

Difference between soft washing, pressure washing and painting

Soft Wash SLO

Soft Wash

We apply custom blended cleaning solutions to the surface by use of special, low pressure pumps. The pressure is about the same as what would be seen coming from a garden hose. It is the cleaning solution that does all the work. Whereas with the use of a pressure washer, it is the pressure of the water stream that is trying to do the cleaning.

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing, on the other hand, is a method that uses water under high pressure to clean material and house surfaces.


Painting is the acts of the addition of a color coating on the wall to restore the appeal of a house wall or the entire house.

When considering to restore the appeal of a house, it is nice to consider soft wash as the first option rather than painting services. But why is soft washing an important aspect than initiating painting now and then?

Benefits of soft washing a house rather than painting

Save Thousands of Dollars When Soft Washing vs. Painting a House

Soft washing is less expensive than painting

Soft washing can save you thousands of dollars that you would spend if you consider painting as the only other option. Soft washing uses only water and the cleaning solution applied to the surface and materials of your house clean and good looking. The amount of money you would end up spending while painting can be used to soft wash the home for more than ten times. Surprisingly, the results you can get after washing is almost the same as painting (if not better).

Soft washing takes little time than painting

Unlike painting which takes a lot of time since you have to mix the paint and wait until the walls dry off, soft washing is only slightly different than routine house cleaning. You only need to wait for few minutes for the walls to dry off.

Soft washing is less complex than painting

Having your house painted is a big task. The painter has to set up, things need to be moved to prevent paint spill and everything needs to be done in a very organized and planned matter if you would like to have good results. Soft Wash however can be done almost as easy as washing your house with a hose.

Soft cleaning ensures house freshness

Soft washing does not leave behind any smell. Ideally, it removes existing algae, molds and kills mildew at the molecular level. In this process, your home ends up getting a fresh feeling and stay cleaner for an extended time. Painting, on the contrary, leaves your house with an unpleasant smell which takes time to disappear. Mostly it becomes hard to paint a house and sleep inside on the same day
