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.

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.

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.

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.

Ramsey was great from the moment we arranged for him to come view the areas I needed pressure washed and giving an estimate to the completion of the project. He was incredibly thorough in his cleaning, paying great attention to detail. He was very communicative throughout the project, providing before and after pictures upon completing an area. I am very happy with my experience with Ramsey and Zero Gravity Pressure Washing. He is a very hard-working individual and I would highly recommend his services to those who need some pressure washing done.

Hiring Earl was the best decision we ever made. He responded very quickly to our request and then not only helped us with the pressure washing but ended up painting the entire exterior of our house as well as our carport floor. He didn't stop there because he then offered to pressure wash the driveway and then reseal it. Earl brought his nephew, Keon to help us. We are so grateful! We highly recommend his services.

Miami hustle. We have 800sf of travertine paver we booked Carlos to pressure wash. I overestimated and entered 1k sf in Thumbtack task. It let me book appointment and showed total price of $150. Carlos showed up and said the app isn’t right and said it would be $1,600. I rejected the nonsense and he asked what I wanted to pay. We have it pressure washed every six months. Never more than $175.

I hired Eli to pressure wash my pool deck, before I fixed my pool and I like the result of the pressure wash. He was reasonable in his price comparing to other companies. I also ask him to seal my pool deck and he did an awesome job together with the other gentleman that was helping him. He did a beautiful job. He was very friendly and professional and he knows his work. I will definitely hire Eli again.

Jose did a great job pressure washing my pool deck. He removed all the patio furniture (I'd been called out of town and didn't get it done) and put it back where it was.

Diego did an excellent job pressure washing my house, the side walls and the garden terrace. He worked fast and the walls and the floor were sparkling clean. My garden was not damaged and the outdoor funitures were rearranged. Will higher him again and highly recommend Diego for the quality and value of his work. He is nice and polite with competitive pricing.

I hired Global Pressure Wash Service to power ash my roof via “instant book” on Monday. On Monday, they confirmed my address and we corresponded via thumbtack. On Wednesday(day of service) I confirmed an hour before & they said I had cancelled (?) and they booked someone else in my spot. I did not cancel & wasted a day off of work waiting for them.

I was in South Fl working on my elderly mother's house doing some rountine maintenance while visiting for the holidays and decided to have Diego pressure wash our driveway, patio, and the siding of our patio roof. From the moment Diogo showed up he was confident he could exceed my expectations and made me feel comfortable with the job. This was important as I don't live in Miami and only hear horror stories about service professionals not delivering or ripping folks off. The end results most definitely exceeded my expectations. You can tell this is an individual that takes provide in his work. He even washed parts of the patio and driveway we did not ask him to clean. He worked quickly, efficiently and with very little input on instructions. I would definitely not hesitate to hire GLobal Pressure Sevices again. Thank you for going above and beyond!

When Milton came for my appointment, I was tired and told him I'm going to take a nap and to close the gate after him when he's done. I woke up to what seems to look like a brand new tiled patio. I was blown away! He did such a great job. He even pressure washed my outdoor furnitures. I highly recommend Milton!

Did a good job pressure washing but got here 2.5 hours late. I left before the job was done because he got here late & he said he would but the furniture back in its place and he didn’t left all the furniture in the grass. Claimed the next day he usually charges to move furniture but did not mention that prior. Make sure if you hire him he communicates the details of the job before hire.
