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.

Pressure washed several areas around the house and washed exterior windows. Pressure washing was exceptional. Unfortunately, windows could not be washed completely, but what was done was done well. Should be 4-1/2 stars.

CWAGS did an external wash of the house -- vinyl siding, roof moss removal and a deck wash. The guys were extremely professional and paid a lot of attention to detail. At one point, there was a concern that the pressure washer was too powerful for the deck, so they backed off it. Then Josh came in the next day and washed it himself with a low pressure wash. Overall, CWAGS was a good deal for us, required very little attention from us, and Josh was extremely responsive -- will go back to them again.

FYI Thumbtack, this is the second time I've left this review. PressureWorks NW was absolutely great to work with. I also appreciated Richard's recommendation of a stain for my deck after her pressure washed it, and my concrete driveway. His work is exceptional.

I received 3 bids rapidly, from $150-$300. Based on price and the simplicity of the sidewalk pressure washing, i selected Mow Joe. 2 guys came promptly, set up specialized equipment, and did in 60-80min the same job that usually takes me a day. They will be back here next year!

I hired Ciena to pressure wash the exterior of our house to prepare it for paint. Ciena did a great job, she was communicative and precise. She was helpful in pointing out areas we would want to look at when we paint. Our house looks clean and we had a great experience. Hire her!

JP Home Maint. did such a great job on my ceramic tile roof. He also treated the tiles for future moss growth -- with zinc -- he sprayed zinc before he cleaned and again after. They were meticulous with the job and the clean up -- I would definitely hire them for future pressure washing needs.

Robert was first to respond to my pressure washing project that involved cleaning over 3000 square feet of concrete driveway and patio. He was punctual, professional, and his work was top notch at a very reasonable price. Before he left, he cleaned up the street of all the dirt and debris from the project. I strongly recommend him for maintenance projects.
