The cost to have your house pressure washed depends on where you live, the size of your home, and how much dirt and mold needs to be removed. In 2014, Angie’s List members reported spending an average of $338 on professional pressure washing.
RELATED: How Much Does Pressure Washing Cost for a House and Deck?
Deck cleaning alone typically costs between $0.25 and $1.50 per square foot. The price is often higher for multi-level decks, and some companies charge extra to clean deck railings and stairs.
If you’re having your deck pressure washed, consider having it sealed or stained as well, to protect the wood and extend its life. Hiring a professional to clean and seal your deck can cost from $1 to $5 per square foot, for a total $320 to $1,600, depending on the size of your deck.
Power washing businesses are generally not required to be licensed, so before hiring a contractor, take time to read customer reviews and ask for references. Note: If a power washer will work in an area with plants or other items that could be damaged, ask what kind of cleaning solution will be used and whether it could damage plants or soil.
