How Much Does Pressure Washing Cost?
The price of pressure cleaning usually ranges from $173 to $311. Hiring a professional costs homeowner around $211. If you’re looking for power washing experts to clean your house, you can expect to pay around $108 to $262. On average, power washing costs $0.35 to $0.77 for every square foot. This means that the total cost of the job would depend on the size of the place cleaned.
Pressure washing versus power washing
Knowing exactly how much you’ll spend on these tasks is best to understand their differences.
While both cleaning methods use high-pressure solid water streams to clean rigid surfaces, power washing uses hot water instead of cold water. As such, it’s best for removing mildew, fungus, grime, mold, salt, and dirt from outdoor surfaces. It’s also ideal for eliminating driveway grease stains and hardened chewing gum. They usually cost around $0.35 to $.077 for every square foot. If you want to exterminate the weeds in your garden beds, this is a suitable cleaning method for you.
On the other hand, pressure washing is meant for cleaning concrete, sidings, and houses. This is also the cleaning method of choice to clean your pathways, patios, driveways, decks, fences, and sidewalks. They take longer than power washing, but they only cost $0.08 to $0.20 for every square foot.
Factors to consider in determining the cost of the job
Here are the specific factors that could increase or decrease the overall pressure washing prices:
- Place where you’re staying
- Property type
- Kind of cleaning job you need
- The company you commission to do the cleaning job
How does location affect the cost of the cleaning job?
As you already know, the cost of services and goods tends to go higher in cities than in the suburbs. This is because cleaning demands are higher in densely populated areas, hence the more expensive cost. Then again, the needs for pressure cleaning are different per area. In that case, the number of pressure cleaning companies will play a massive role in the cost of their services. This means that if the market is saturated with businesses engaged in pressure cleaning, you can expect a lower price. However, if a particular company is one of the few in operation, you can expect to pay a higher amount in fees.
If your home or commercial property falls within the list of the company’s serviceable areas, you might not be charged an extra fee for transportation. However, if you live outside these serviceable communities, it’s best to coordinate with the company first to know how much you’ll need to pay in extra.
In what way does property type affect costing?
On average, homeowners pay $211 for pressure cleaning. However, it won’t be the same for owners of commercial properties. Big companies and stores can expect to pay more, considering the needs of their establishment. Small storefronts, on the other hand, can expect to be treated the same as homeowners.
Commercial parking lots are usually big, hence would require a more expensive price tag when cleaned. Commercial properties are often charged somewhere between $0.05 and $0.30 for every square foot of cleaned space.
Commercial and residential property owners should be careful when choosing a cleaning company to work with. While some may even offer a lower price for their service, they might compromise the quality of their work. However, this doesn’t mean that the company is not capable of giving high-quality service. It’s just that the customer is only willing to pay for a lower-grade service.
If the area that needs to be cleaned is also deeply soiled in heavy, tough dirt, it’s almost expected that you will be charged higher than an area requiring a less demanding cleaning job.
