Is Pressure Washing Expensive?

If you’ve been thinking about hiring a professional to pressure wash your home, you’ve undoubtedly thought about the price. You might be weighing your options when it comes to either hiring a professional or just doing it yourself.

In this article, we will discuss the price of a professional pressure wash, as well as the potential costs of doing it yourself.

How Much Does Professional Pressure Washing Services Cost?

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to just tell you a price. The cost of a pressure wash service will depend on a number of factors such as the size of your home, the material it is made of, and how dirty it is. That’s right! An extensive build-up of grime, mold, and exterior stains can make the job harder, take longer, and cost more. 

Let’s get back to your original question: is pressure washing expensive?

A typical 1,500-2,000 square foot home could run you anywhere from $300 to $500 depending on the factors mentioned above. 

So, to determine whether this is “expensive” or not, you should weigh how much it costs you to live with the grime and mold on your home. Mold growing, even on the exterior of your home, could contribute to poor health in those who live in your home. That will add up to more medical bills — not to mention the suffering of constantly being sick.

If you don’t fear the mold, not maintaining your home could mean you have to replace siding or roofing more often. A lack of home maintenance can also lead to roof leaks, which can be a huge repair cost — much larger than a few hundred bucks for a full-home pressure wash.

With that perspective, pressure washing your home really is not expensive.

Can I Pressure Wash My Own Home to Save Money?

Of course you can! You can do anything you want! Of course, you would also run the risk of damaging your property or harming yourself or others. Pressure washing equipment is extremely powerful and can easily strip paint off of vehicles and your home. It can also blast away siding, shatter glass, and destroy your roof if not properly handled. We strongly recommend seeking help from a professional when it comes to pressure washing your home.
