Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What surfaces can be cleaned with a pressure washer?

You can safely use a pressure washer on a number of different surfaces, including your home’s exterior, siding, driveways, rooftops, sidewalks, patios and more.

It can also be used to clean grills, outdoor furniture, cars and trucks, boats, bikes, fences and decks. You can generally clean any hard outdoor walking surface, including asphalt, concrete, brick and pavers with a pressure washer.

However, it’s possible to damage your property — especially wood and vinyl surfaces — if you don’t use the pressure washer correctly. Consider hiring a top-rated pressure washing service near you if you don’t have experience using the equipment and selecting the correct PSI.

What is the best time of year to pressure wash your house?

A warm, sunny day is the best time of year to pressure wash your house. The warm sun will be able to dry out the house after washing. You should also consider pressure washing your home after the rainy, storm season has passed. Depending on where you live, this might be in the spring, summer or early fall.

Contact the best pressure washing services and pros to determine the best time to wash your home, and schedule an appointment.

How long does it take to pressure wash a house?

Pressure washing a house tends to take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. The larger the house, the longer it will take. It may also take an additional 15 to 30 minutes of setup time and pack time, and some time may be required to switch between applying the cleaning chemicals and rinsing them off. 

Ask the best pressure washers near you how long it might take to wash your home's exterior (or other surfaces), and get free estimates.

How much does pressure washing cost per square foot?

The cost of hiring a pressure washer will depend on the square footage of your home, which translates to the square footage of your exterior walls. In general, expect to pay around $0.10-$0.17 per square foot of your property size. Ask the professional how much they charge per square foot of the surface itself. This can be helpful in estimating the cost to pressure wash driveways, decks, fences and roofs.

How often should a house be pressure washed?

The best rule of thumb is to pressure wash your house once per year at minimum. This is largely dependent on your city's weather and climate, however. If you get a lot of rain, wind and storms, you probably need to clean more frequently than once per year. Wetter climates with regular rain and storms can lead to a lot of humidity, buildup and debris, which could also cause mold and mildew. 

You should also consider pressure washing your home if you’re planning to repaint your home’s exterior or if you want to boost your home’s curb appeal to prospective buyers.

Contact the best pressure washers near you to schedule regular appointments.

Is it worth it to hire a professional pressure washer?

Yes, it’s often worth it to hire a pro to pressure wash your house or other surfaces. The main benefits of hiring a professional pressure washer include the pro’s ability to clean without damaging your home (removing the risk for personal injury) and their ability to spot problems before they occur. 

With DIY pressure washing, you can save money and get familiar with your house’s nooks and crannies. However, you run the risk of damaging your siding and your paint, falling off a ladder, hurting yourself with the high-pressure water and not spotting problems that an experienced pro would be able to spot.

Contact the top-rated pressure washing services near you to figure out if hiring a pro is the best option for you.

How do I find and hire a professional pressure washer?

An online search allows you to compare ratings and reviews for the best pressure washing services near you. Look for customer reviews with attached photos, as these showcase the work of the pro. Even better — look for photos of the surfaces and structures you need a pro to clean. This may include before-and-after photos of home exteriors, concrete driveways, sidewalks and more.

Once you’ve decided on a few professionals, request free cost estimates from at least three of them before you make your choice. 

What is power washing?

Power washing uses a machine to take in water, raise it to an extremely high pressure, heat it and spray it through a narrow nozzle in order to blast surfaces clean. The high temperature and pressure of the water make this method better than pressure washing for the removal of embedded stains on outdoor surfaces like driveways, decks and patios. It can also blast through common problems like grease stains or chewing gum caked onto sidewalks. 

Power washing vs. pressure washing — what's the difference?

Power washing uses heated water while pressure washing uses tap-cold water. This is the main difference between the two, Pressure washing is ideal for building and house exteriors, walkways, sidewalks, public spaces, parking garages and vehicles. Power washing, on the other hand, is useful for more intensive applications such as removing deck stains. The professional you hire will know which type of washer to use for each application.

Darrell and his team did a GREAT job. Replied immediately to my inquiry, stopped by same day and provided an estimate, and got back to me within three days with a firm date and time for doing the work. On day of job, arrived exactly on time and did everything we discussed. Concrete and house looks awesome - so good that I am sad that I have to drive on the driveway. 😊 I would recommend Stevenson Pressure Washing for anyone that needs a pressure washing service.

He was very timely, listened to my concerns about my plants/ shrubs, obviously knowledgeable about his profession matched by his prices. This is the best pressure washing experience I’ve had. I highly recommend him, you won’t be disappointed!

Brandon and Nicki were wonderful. They did my home’s driveway, back patio, sidewalk and the vinyl siding for the entire house. My wife and I couldn’t be happier. Brandon and Nicki are meticulous about their work. We are so happy, we already told our daughter to hire them for their house. We even sent her pictures so she could see for herself. The price was very reasonable for the amount of work they provide. If you need any pressure washing please hire them, you won’t be sorry or regret working with them. Thank you Brandon and Nicki for all your work and for making sure we were happy with the job. By the way, we are super happy!!!! Thanks again.
