Pressure washing is a fast, effective service to clean home exterior surfaces. It can remove stains, organic debris and mildew from vinyl, brick, wood and roof shingles.
Whether it’s your house or property, pressure washing can instantly improve the appearance of your exterior.
Pressure washing is an affordable way to give a house better curb appeal, without the hassle of remodeling. But many homeowners never schedule these services because they assume they are too expensive or not necessarily worth the price.
Let’s look at the typical cost of professional pressure washing so you aren’t one of those homeowners that doesn’t see the value of this service.
A pressure washing company in Seattle is going to charge you by the hour or depending on the size of the job. Sometimes, a business might provide flat rates for most of their jobs. This simplifies their pricing for their customers and themselves, but it is definitely not the standard.
Typical costs of pressure washing vary a little throughout the country, but they should be pretty similar throughout Seattle.
This cleaning method works really well on a variety of household surfaces, so we’ll explain the average price of pressure washing by the type of surface to be cleaned.
The cost for homes and small offices or storefronts is between $0.40 and $0.80 per square foot, with the mean cost being $0.40 per square foot. This puts the average price near $225 for a smaller home, although this price can easily be increased depending on the size of your house.
Wood is much softer than vinyl, brick and most other home building materials, so you need to be careful not to dig into it. This is a case where enlisting a professional for deck cleaning or for patio cleaning is much less risky than trying to do the job on your own. Plan to pay between $150 and $250 for most decks and patios in Seattle.
Did you know that your home’s roof can be pressure washed? Like with wood, it takes special knowledge and skills to protect fragile roof shingles – although many roofing materials, like tin, are able to withstand high pressure washing techniques. The Seattle pressure washing service you hire will have different accessories for their equipment to accommodate the type of roof you have. Pressure washing a roof costs somewhere between $250 and $600.
Vinyl and wood fencing often develop mildew over time, and mud clings to these surfaces. For $175 to $300, you can have your fences pressure washed so that they look like new.
Concrete is easy to pressure wash, and it is a very quick way to remove stains. You can pay as little as $0.08 per square foot for pressure washing a driveway, or up to $0.35 for power washing sidewalks with professional grade concrete detergent.
AsLike we said, the cost of pressure washing can vary based on several different factors. Here are a few of the factors that can impact the price of your service:
Before you commit to a company or Seattle pressure washing service, check around to see which service friends and family may have used in the past. You’ll usually get very good recommendations.
After that, it’s essential to get estimates from 2-3 of your top picks. Too many more than that can be an overwhelming amount of information, but you certainly don’t want to depend on just one business for an honest estimate.
After you get the results of these estimates, one may be priced by the hour and another by the job. Sometimes this can be confusing and hard to really compare, so it’s necessary to ask questions like “How long do you think the project will take?” This type of question will help you better compare estimates that are priced with different strategies.
Don’t forget that cost is just one factor in your decision. You may see a wide range of prices in all of the estimates that you ask for, but it isn’t often the best to hire the lowest priced service. Dig deeper to discover if this is a sales price or if the business prices its service lower for another reason.
After you have weighed the price vs. other factors like reputation and guarantees, you can then make an educated choice about the right company to provide your pressure washing services.
