How Long Should it Take to Power Wash Your Property?

Pressure Washing

Power washing is one of the easiest and most effective to bring life back into your patio, deck, or driveway. The combination of heat and pressurized water cuts through dirt and grime like warm butter. So, as you can imagine, the power washing process happens pretty quickly. But if you’ve never had your property professionally cleaned in this way, you might be wondering exactly how much time it takes.

Every Property is Different

No two properties are the same, so the amount of time it will take to properly power wash a home depends heavily on factors like the size of your property, the surfaces you intend to wash, and how dirty your home is.

What do you need to be washed?

The more surface area there is to clean, the longer it will take to power wash. As a point of reference, An experienced power washing technician can usually clean a four-car driveway in under thirty minutes. However, if your plan on cleaning your entire property (including windows, siding, and deck), you should expect the process to take between three and five hours.

The surface you're washing.

Some surfaces take longer to wash than others. While concrete driveways and sidewalks hold up well to high water pressure, other surfaces like windows, siding, and wood can be easily damaged if not power washed delicately. The technician needs to take their time to ensure the job is done right.

How dirty is your property?

The longer your property goes without being washed, the more dirt and stains there will be on your home’s surfaces. Dirty decks, patios, and sidewalks may require multiple passes to remove any caked-on grime completely, affecting the overall time needed to power wash your property.
