Super heated steam pressure washers vs softwashing

Recommended Posts

I’d be interested to hear from people who have experience of both of these, in terms of whether the results differ when it comes to cleaning bathstone?

I know k-rend needs to be softwashed, and also that steam heated washers are good for graffiti removal, but what about bathstone cleaning?

I’m interested because a friend who is a builder is doing a large renovation on a 2 story house including all sorts of work, roofing, bathstone cleaning, windows restored etc etc, so if he’s using a stone cleaning company that use steam heated pressure washers i’d be interested to know what that normally costs in comparison to soft washing and whether the results would be that much different? I have asked him but haven’t had a reply yet so i’m just wondering what anybody else thinks. Cheers guys.

 I'm assuming your on about a DOFF machine? A mate of mine used to use one and they good, but they cost about £8k to buy and you can't hire them. They did Swansea crown court and it came up almost new.

I'm assuming so, I'll ask my mate tomorrow, he does come and lurk on here sometimes, not sure if he has done any softwashing though...

Saying that @Jamie nott you got any input?

You got to be very careful on stone... if you go to slow you can burn lines in to the stone. So it's getting the right rhythm and speed. If you are using it on brick work it be ok and will come out looking great.... on both you got to be the right distance back holding the DOFF lance.
