Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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?

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.

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.

I had the entire exterior of my house power washed by Gabriel with UltraWash. The results are impressive! I am very pleased by how clean he left all areas he worked on: Siding, entrance porch, deck, deck railings. I give them the highest marks possible on punctuality, quality of work, value, friendly attitude. I highly recommend UltraWash to any homeowner considering a power wash job. I will make sure to have them come back in the future. Thanks Gabriel and UltraWash!!!

I had an amazing experience with them which included cleaning the siding and brick on three sides of my home. The price was reasonable and below the bid of a different provider. I highly recommend them for any power wash needs.

Amazing work done by these guys. Showed up on time, made sure the carpet and the wood floor within the house doesn’t get dirty while they work. They power-washed my two patios and I must say they have done a great job. The surface, cladding and windows look brand new and I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended.

Would definitely recommend the Robles Group. Our back deck is uncovered and is surrounded by trees. It had been many years since it had been cleaned or power washed. After they were done, it looks like a new deck! It took a lot of work to get it that way. The Robles Group went above and beyond with an already difficult task for more than a fair price. I plan to use them every year to keep the deck looking great!

I would give six stars if it were an option! My family and I moved into a new home in Ashburn over the summer. As fall sets in, we decided to have the exterior of our home power washed before it got too cold to do so. I looked at a few vendors with Thumbtack and Chris / DMV Power Wash stood out with an abundance of outstanding reviews. We had a lackluster experience with another vendor recently on our previous home that we sold in August. This made me slightly skeptical that Chris could meet my expectations. Chris gave an in person quote to cover the exterior of the home that was less than what was quoted on Thumbtack. I couldn’t believe that he was actually trying to lower my costs and was a little taken aback. I decided to also have him do significant work on walkways, our deck, and areas surrounding our swimming pool. All of this came out to be around the same as the initial Thumbtack quote, but will all of these extras. Throughout Chris was very punctual and communicated consistently and often via text. He arrived punctually on the day of the job and spent nearly the entire day working on our home. To say that the quality of his work was exceptional, might not be doing him justice. We were thrilled by the end product as our house looked amazing and we couldn’t believe how much time and care Chris put into his job. I won’t be using Thumbtack again to find a power washing professional because we found our go to professional. I could not recommend more highly.
