Pressure Washing or Power Washing- What is the difference?
The term pressure washing is more closely linked to cleaning with high water pressure with minimal use of soaps or detergents. The method relies on the high pressure to force foreign matter such as dirt and debris from a surface. Pressure washing is more closely related to commercial jobs, hot water high pressure steam cleaning, or cleaning of hard porous surfaces such as cement or concrete.

Power Washing is a more broad term for the use of machinery to create cleaning and may include the added benefits of soaps, bleach, or other detergents.
If your looking to clean a softer surface such as a Trex deck, composite wood, vinyl siding or fencing, it is always best to add a detergent designed for that particular surface. The proper chemicals can provide most of the cleaning power to avoid the problems of high pressure washing on soft surfaces. These are some
