Factors Affecting Commercial Pressure Washing Prices
Commercial pressure washing prices can vary depending on a number of factors. The size of the area that needs to be cleaned, the type of surface that will be cleaned and the amount of time it will take to complete the job are all important factors that will affect the price. Generally, commercial pressure washing jobs will be more expensive than residential jobs, but the results are worth it!
Here are some factors that affect commercial pressure washing prices:
Time of year. The time of year will usually influence the cost of a job. Jobs during peak season, such as spring and summer, tend to be more expensive because it is busier for companies offering these services.
- Size of the area to be cleaned: If you have a large area to be cleaned, it may be a good idea to cut back on the labor by doing much of the actual work yourself. This way you can lower your costs and still get an adequate cleaning job done. A garage door or wall may take less than half an hour to clean at most whereas scrubbing down walls around windows using power washers could take much longer.
- Type of material used: The material used on the outside of buildings often determines how long it takes to clean them properly. Brick and concrete surfaces are popular choices that can withstand water exposure and usually only take a few minutes to get clean. The siding on the other hand can be torn off easily by water pressure and this needs to be taken into consideration before power washing.
- Type of surface being cleaned: The type of material being cleaned will affect how quickly it is done and also what equipment will need to be used for a thorough cleaning. A home’s siding or roof may require one special kind of machine whereas a brick building could require another machine with a different nozzle attachment. -Use some caution when using an industrial-strength power washer on stone, brick or concrete surfaces as these tools possess enough power to potentially damage or wear away at your structure’s exterior if not used properly. Consult with professional cleaners who have experience in safely cleaning different types of surfaces if you are unsure.
Even during the off-season, specialty commercial pressure washing companies may charge more because they take on fewer jobs and therefore need to charge more for each job that is completed.
Specialty cleaners may charge more for their services because they take on fewer jobs during off-peak seasons but this is often reflected in their quality of service which is worth every penny!
Before choosing a budget for your project, be sure to shop around for estimates. Get quotes from several cleaning companies in order to ensure you get the best price possible. Most power washers agree that it’s better not to try cleaning these surfaces yourself or with homemade equipment so as not to damage the exterior because it could cost you much more money in repairs than you would have spent on power washing in the first place.
