Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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. 

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 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.

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.

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. 

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.

Dominick pressure washed our front sidewalk and driveway. He did a good job and was the most reasonably-priced of 4 bids we received.

Pressure washing 3 tennis courts with a wand is a daunting task. Dominick stayed with the job that took a lot longer than he estimated. He also cleaned our windscreens at no additional cost. He was very professional in his work and appearance.

Cleanscapes came to pressure wash my driveway and sidewalks, and did a great job! Dominick arrived on time, and was very courteous and professional. The finished job is outstanding, all areas are sparkling clean and blindingly white. Very satisfied all around, and will definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.

We hired Cleanscapes for a house pressure wash. Dominik was extremely thorough from start to finish. He was quick in responding to questions and setting the appointment. His work is detailed and well worth the more than fair price. I couldn't recommend more and will certainly use agin.

Dominick did a very good job on both my small single story rental house and my two-story home. He did work that was beyond what our agreement called for on both. We had an issue on my home, which he promptly addressed, staying until very late in the evening to ensure that we were happy with the result--which was superior. I absolutely recommend him for pressure washing & soft washing.

Although my family wasn’t able to see the work that American Exterior Cleaning could do,it’s the professionalism that attracted us.This young man was punctual and proficient ( I reached out and got an estimate that same day). I implore anyone looking for a pressure washing service to give this young man a chance.

I hired Greenway Landcare to pressure wash my siding, gutters and deck. Anthony Hamm and his job foreman were professional, courteous, meticulous, and efficient! The cleaning mixture they used did not harm my plants nor lawn. However, the mildew, even on the windows, never stood a chance! I will definitely hire them again!

Dominick pressure washed our deck better than anyone ever has times a thousand!! Our deck is old and was in bad shape. Dominic worked many many hours and now it looks better than it has in a decade. He is thorough, meticulous, and he put every single thing back exactly where it was before he started. He is the real deal, a genuine treasure! Hire him and you'll see what I mean! I recommend him unreservedly!
