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 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.

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.

Peyton's Pure Pressure did such a wonderful job on our home. We had the siding, patio and deck all pressure washed and I can not believe how clean and spotless everything looks. In scheduling the service, responsivness was timely and easy and communicated with us throughout the process. The gentleman was extremely polite and professional and showed up right on time. I would 100% recommend Peyton's Pure Pressure and look forward to working with him again!

Thank you for the excellent job in pressure washing the patio. There was quite a buildup that you managed to get rid of and we can use the patio like before. The suggestions for additional cleanup and future care are very helpful. Will definitely use this service in future and recommend to friends.

Communication was great and punctual while scheduling the job. The job was well done for our siding and sidewalk. However, after he left, I found that he had pressure washed our wood door frame. We had painted wood chips all over our deck. I contacted him and said he needed to repair this and he told me to pay for the paint and supplies. I told him I would not. I have contacted him twice and he has not set up a date or finished this. I now have raw exposed wood on our deck

Very unprofessional. Would not recommend at all. - I hired them for pressure wash patio, windows, garage and driveway cleaning. - The guy comes 45 min late to what was a 1 o’clock appointment. - After arriving, he inspected the building from front and back. Said he will clean it all. We were good on the price too. - After connecting and disconnecting his equipment for some 15 min, he said he needs to get something from his place and that he forgot to bring. I asked him for how long will he be gone, he said 5 min. I just couldn’t believe him at that point since it took him 45 to arrive in the first place. Big red flag. - As expected, he did not come back in 5 minutes and neither did he call/text for the next 45 min. I eventually sent him a text for his whereabouts to which he replied he is stuck somewhere and he can come and finish the job if I can simply Venmo him $20 bucks. Cash in advance was not agreed upon. - I was furious with his unprofessional behavior. I had to postpone all my office work just for this guy to finish what he agreed on and he just wasted my time. Also, Who would ask for money just like that when he didn’t even start his service. Felt like I am being scammed. - I politely declined his request and would now look for a different provider.
