Allen C. says, "Joe was a pleasure to work with. Things I Liked: 1. He was very communicative through the entire process. He was one of the fastest to contact me on Thumbtack, notified me before he came over, notified me as he pulled up, asked me what I would like cleaned, was able to answer all of my preliminary questions. 2. He allowed me to do a full home walkthrough afterwords to see what spots he might have missed. 3. He brings his own cleaning solutions including his own secret cleaning mix (which smells lovely!). No harsh chemicals like bleach, which were good for my two fur boys. 4. They were nice enough to throw out the trash. I've had prior cleaners do this, and some don't. 5. He and his associate were very quick (and his associate was a professional cleaner). They spent ~1.5 hrs x 2 people to clean a 2300 sq ft home. 6. They did a great job cleaning the floor of the bedroom that I use for my cats. Things that could be improved: 1. Not quite clean to the standards I would have liked. For example, I noticed some crumbs on the floor after they left, some windowsills that they missed (which I also missed for the post-clean review) and caught a lot of stuff in the post clean review, which they did immediately address. This is a service that I would need to inspect after every time to make sure they thoroughly cleaned. 2. They didn't voluntarily clean the closets. That can be understandable since those doors were closed (and I've had prior cleaners treat that out of respect for privacy) but I would have been liked to be asked. 3. They could have emptied my vacuum cleaner, which they used to dry clean the floors. On balance, Joe was a pleasant and communicative guy who was easy to work with, and they did same day service for a fast turnaround. House wasn't perfectly clean so I would recommend a full and detailed walkthrough yourself, overall would still recommend. He's fast, courteous, and house smells great."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does pressure washing cost in Houston?

Some professional pressure washing services in Houston start at $45, but the cost to hire a pro will vary. Several factors affect the price, the most important being the size or square footage of the surface that needs a cleaning. And if it’s a house, the number of stories may play a factor as well. 

Providing a water source helps cut down costs. You might also be able to add in cleaning for other surfaces like driveways, rooftops, decks, sidewalks and patios — but your total price might be higher.

Ask Houston’s top-rated pressure washers to send you free estimates so you’ll know exactly how much you should pay for pressure washing services.

To learn more about pressure washing pricing, read "How much does pressure washing cost?"

Please note: All cost estimates are accurate at time of writing and are subject to change. For the most accurate, up-to-date cost estimates for your specific project, get free estimates from pros near 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 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.

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.

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. 

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.

The improvement in appearance of the house is readily apparent. Robert is knowledgeable about both pressure washing as well as landscaping issues. At the outset I expressed concern for badly worn Mexican bricks and they survived without further damage. Pressure washing is physically demanding, time consuming and wet, dirty work. Robert was worth the cost of his services and I recommend his work to anyone who does not want or is unable to pressure wash their house and driveway.

I had Amin to do a pressure wash for the whole house. Amin even went the extra mile and gave me a price break by having my house and driveway done at the same time, fixing the fence and painting the front door for us. It is rare to find a person who does good quality work at a reasonable price. I found that with Amin at Jood Pressure Washing. Amin's equipment is commercial type pressure wash, it is very powerful, and could achieve good result. We were very pleased with the job Amin did for the pressure wash, fence and painting. I asked Amin's business card to give it to my neighbors and friends for job referrals. I will not hesitate to recommand and use Amin again.
