Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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.

They came on time and did a good job. My only gripe was the manager said they would not pressure wash the porch and they did pressure wash the porch, including the ceiling of the porch, which was great, except I had stuff on the porch I would have removed if I knew they were going to wash the porch.

Luis was professional, timely, communicative and very pleasant to work with! Our house looks great! Couldn’t be more pleased! Great price too! We had our two story house pressure washed, driveway, walkway, and patio (and he also did our two patio chairs!). He was even able to give me a referral for landscape work. I will definitely use his services again. Thanks Pro Wash Exteriors!

I had pressure washing of house, driveway and deck done.. Kenneth was on time and did a very good job. I showed him some areas which needed some more cleaning and he cleaned them again. I am very satisfied with the job done.

Amazing job pressure washing and cleaning my house exterior and roof of streaks, fungus, mold, etc. The results are like night and day. Norm went out of his way to get the job done, even coming back for free a second day to give the roof a second round of cleaning. Also very responsive to questions and messages.

Ricardo is a gem: he's careful, thorough, skilled, creative and faair. He meticulously pressure washed my home, front porch and deck, paying close attention to my new plants to protect them from his cleaning solution. He also diluted some solution. Ricardo has a sophisticated sense of design, and he left my deck furniture in an artful--and practical-arrangement on my deck. He's a real find since he also gardens, does carpentry and is knowledgeable about wood and tile.
