Pressure washing is great for forcefully getting rid of dirt, mold and stains from home exteriors, decks and just about any other hard surface.
In this entry, we’ll talk about what to expect when pressure washing as a DIY job and when it makes sense to call a pro.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN PRESSURE WASHING ON YOUR OWN
If you do not have a pressure washer on-hand, expect to pay about $40 — $75 per day for a rental.
If you want to go ahead and buy a pressure washer, you should know that washers powered by gas will typically have a bit more muscle than the electric versions.
A gas-powered washer will typically be priced anywhere between $300 — $1,000.
The electric residential pressure washers are generally priced between $70 — $200.
GAUGING THE POWER
The power of a pressure washer is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). Many of today’s models are very capable of providing as much as 3,000 PSI – more than enough to damage wood decks, knock holes in home exteriors and erode cement if not handled correctly.
THE DOS AND DON’TS OF PRESSURE WASHING
There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re doing the pressure washing yourself.
WHEN TO CALL IN THE PROS
While you may be able to handle more manageable pressure washing tasks like a deck or one-story house, for bigger jobs it just makes sense to call on a professional.
Bigger jobs require heavier and more powerful equipment – and the professional cleaners already have that equipment.
They also have the knowledge on how to deal with hard-to-reach areas without falling and have expertise in cleaning areas like house roofs without causing damage.
