Factors that Affect the Power Washing Cost
Home power washing is a great way to clean the exterior of your home. It can be a relatively affordable project if you do it yourself, but there are several factors that will affect the power washing cost. These factors include the size of the area being cleaned, the type of surface being cleaned, and the level of dirt or grime that needs to be removed.
The size of the area being cleaned is one of the biggest factors that will affect the price of power washing. If you have a large area, such as a driveway or deck, it will take longer to clean and will therefore cost more. The type of surface being cleaned is also a factor. Power washing can be used on different types of surfaces, including concrete, asphalt, stone, brick, and wood. Some surfaces are easier to clean than others, so they may cost less. Finally, the level of dirt or grime that needs to be removed is also a factor. If your home is very dirty or has a lot of built-up grime, it will take longer to clean and will therefore cost more.
Keep these factors in mind when budgeting for your home power washing project. Knowing the approximate cost ahead of time will help you plan and prepare for the project so that you can get the best results possible. It can be an effective way to clean the exterior of your home, but it’s important to use the right technique for the surface you’re cleaning.
Here are some tips for power washing different types of surfaces:
- If you’re cleaning a wooden surface, start by wetting the surface down with a garden hose. Then, apply a detergent or soap to the surface and use the power washer to rinse it off.
- For concrete surfaces, start by wetting them down and then applying a degreaser or cleaner to help break down any dirt or grime. Rinse them off with the power washer afterwards.
- If you’re cleaning a vinyl siding surface, start by spraying it down with water to loosen any dirt or grime. Then, apply a vinyl siding cleaner and use the power washer to rinse it off.
For all surfaces, be sure to hold the power washer nozzle at least 10 inches away from the surface and use a low pressure setting to avoid damaging the surface. Also, always test the power washer on a small, inconspicuous area before using it on the entire surface.
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be able to power wash any surface safely and effectively!
