When it comes to cleaning the exterior of your home, soft washing services are one of the best methods for removing accumulated dirt and grime. However, it’s essential to choose a pressure-washing company that offers high-quality services. Some may use outdated equipment that doesn’t provide a thorough cleaning or need to adjust the pressure properly for different areas of your home. At North Jersey Soft Washing, we take pride in providing our clients with superior and effective soft washing services.

Nevertheless, we recommend that you interview other soft washing companies before making a decision. To ensure that you receive a comprehensive, safe, and efficient cleaning for your investment, ask these five essential questions.


1. Are you insured? 

Regardless of how careful we are, accidents are bound to occur. Soft-washing professionals, in particular, are at a higher risk of getting injured due to the nature of their work. Therefore, companies and workers must have comprehensive insurance coverage to shield against potential damages or legal obligations.

We are a fully insured, professional company. We maintain licensing with The State of New Jersey, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Division of Consumer Affairs as a licensed home improvement contractor. Certificates of Insurance will be produced to customers upon request as proof of insurance before the start of your project.


2. Are your cleaning chemicals and detergents safe?

North Jersey Soft Washing only uses the highest-rated, environmentally conscious cleaning equipment and methods. We know what surfaces our Soft Washing Techniques are best suited for and where Pressure Washing methods are required. Our ecologically conscious, biodegradable detergents are safe for the environment, your homes, plants, pets, and your family. Our safe and effective pressure washing methods are designed to deliver the highest level of cleaning, depending on the track surface being cleaned, with NO RISK of damage to your fleet that you often find with other less professional companies. The sparkling clean results we achieve for your fleet provide many valuable benefits. Not only is our washing process environmentally conscious, but we also ensure that the drums and all products are properly recycled.


3. Do you offer a guarantee for your service?

It is essential to only companies that guarantee their services or are hesitant to discuss their guarantee. Every pressure washing company is responsible for ensuring that their work is efficient, of good quality, and meets the customer’s expectations within rational parameters. If the responses given by the company are inadequate or unsatisfactory, it is advisable not to proceed with their services.

We review each pressure washing job with you before and after the project to ensure you are 100% satisfied. We’ll follow up a few days later to ensure your home is still sparkling.


4. Do you use pressure washing or soft washing? 

Pressure washing uses a wand that expels water at 2,500 PSI (pounds per square inch) or more. While this pressure is highly effective for removing stains, it could damage some softer surfaces of your north jersey home’s exterior. Pressure washing is best for use on surfaces like Concrete sidewalks, driveways, brick, stone, and other durable surfaces.

Water used to soft wash your home won’t have PSI over 1,000, which is less than half of the PSI used for pressure washing. Rather than relying on pressure to clean your house, soft washing uses formulated detergents and “dwell time” to clean those surfaces. Soft washing is recommended for surfaces like cedar shake, wood panel siding, stucco, and coquina.


5. Do you have references that you can share?

Photos are good supplemental material to give the company credibility in its work. Make sure to follow up even more profoundly by asking to share references. References can be highly subjective, not tell the whole story, and can be manufactured by companies to boost their ratings with the clientele they serve, so beware! At North Jersey Soft Washing, we have over 50 five-star reviews on Google and Home Advisor. Plus, we have a list of past clients we are happy to share as references.


It’s important to note that not all companies and services that offer pressure washing are the same. To ensure that you receive top-notch services, asking probing questions that go beyond marketing tactics is necessary. As a customer, it’s your right to demand high-quality cleaning services for your property. Therefore, don’t hesitate to ask challenging questions to find a pressure-washing company that suits your needs.
