How Long Does It Take to Pressure Wash a House?

Size, cleanliness, experience, equipment, and other individual factors can impact the amount of time it takes to pressure wash a home.

If you’re performing the work yourself, you can expect to spend between 1-3 hours for the entire pressure washing process on a small to medium sized home. You’ll spend time prepping the areas you want to clean, setting up your equipment, working with the detergent and cleaning solution, and then finally beginning the actual pressure washing on a small to medium sized home. You can expect to spend 3-6 hours or more pressure washing a large home with multiple stories.

If you hire a professional like the team hear at Paradise Ridge Builders, we bring all necessary equipment, have the knowledge to perform the job without damaging your home, and we can knock out most pressure washing jobs in just a few short hours.

How Often Should You Pressure Wash Your House?

How often you should pressure wash your home depends on what type of siding you have, and the condition of your siding.

  • For wood siding – You should limit your pressure washing as much as possible if you have wood siding, and we would not recommend more than once a year. If you must pressure wash your home, only do it to remove dirt or mildew buildup, and use a very gentle setting.
  • For vinyl, metal, or composite siding - Here in PA we’re known for our warm, humid summers, which can really lead to some buildup on our home’s exterior. Many homes in the area are also surrounded by trees, which can allow sap and other grime to fall on our homes as well. For these reasons, it is recommended that you pressure wash your home with vinyl, metal, or composite siding at least once a year, and for those who see a quicker buildup of dirt, twice a year is not out of the question.

How Much Does it Cost to Pressure Wash a Deck?

The cost to pressure wash your deck depends on the type of deck you have, the size of your deck, and the condition of the deck. An aluminum deck for example is much easier to clean than a composite one.

Most residential deck washing jobs in southcentral PA cost between $100-$250. Larger decks, or those in poor shape that need hand brushing, can see costs in the $500-$800 range or more.

How Long Does It Take to Pressure Wash a Deck?

How long it takes to pressure wash a deck varies, but nearly all jobs are completed in under 3 hours. Similar to cost variables, the size of your deck, its condition, and the type of deck you have factor into the length of time required.

How Often Should You Pressure Wash Your Deck?

Heavy winters, humid summers, and other environmental factors mean that decks in Pennsylvania take a beating from the elements. It is therefore typically recommended you pressure wash your deck once a year.

As with pressure washing your home, we recommend leaving this to the professionals, so you don’t damage your deck by using too high of a pressure or pointing the nozzle too close to the deck. Pressure washers can not only damage your deck, but also nearby plant materials as well.
