The Cost of Power Washing in 2019

When it comes time to spruce up either the outside of your house or other weather worn areas, finding the right power washing crew can be the best thing a homeowner can do. Visibly dirty areas around the home are not typically in need of total replacement, a pressure washing cleaning can make things look almost like new.

As people are becoming more aware and informed of the service, they are finding out how much this relatively simple service can provide for the look of their home.

How Does Power Washing Work?

Power washing uses high pressured liquids to remove dirt and grime which gets things cleaner. With the use of a high-power motor, the water is pushed through at a high enough level that it will clean almost anything. At the same time, it’s not too harsh that it damages bricks or siding on the home.

Depending on the company you use, they may use a cleaning detergent to assist in the cleaning. For customers that are conscious about the environment should ask about Eco-friendly power washing. Some companies are certified for their methods of cleanup and disposing of the waste waters.

What Are Power Washing Prices?

Of course, it will depend on the company, method of cleaning, and use of Eco-friendly detergents and cleaning solutions on the exact price of having power washing completed. Here are a few other factors that will affect the cost of the job.

  • Job Size: The price for cleaning a walkway or sidewalk will vary from cleaning the bricks or siding of a home. A good company will send someone out to personally look at what needs to be completed for a specific job. Once the area and an overview are given to the customer, the company will provide a cost for the job and timeline of having it completed. The company looks at the total square footage of the area needed to be power washed, and then compares it to the other variables necessary to complete the job.
  • Surfaces To Be Cleaned: Some jobs will not take as much time and effort if the area has been cleaned before or recently. For homeowners that are diligent about having these cleanings done between seasons will enjoy more affordable pricing than those who wait years until they have it cleaned. For different materials needed to be cleaned, different types of equipment is needed to do the job without causing any damage. Some surfaces do not allow a typical pressure washing technique and calls for using special cleaning chemicals to break down the dirt before washing. Other materials require a completely different style of washing, like a soft wash.
  • Timeframe For The Job: If the job is a last minute thought and things are rushed, it could cost more. Although most companies are more than happy to expedite the service to meet the customer’s needs, it’s important to remember that it could be a little more expensive than just needing it done in the next one to two weeks.

After the main factors of completing a power washing job are known, the company is able to create a quote based on their current running rates. Companies rates will vary depending on the size and location of the company. The national average for pressure washing jobs is between $300 – $500 for a power washing services.
