for you that use power washer drives, sidewalks, ect..

I am still busy with regular yard care but I do understand that power washing is a way to make extra income to help make it thru the winter but the question I have is how do you go about charging for these type of jobs, for instance cleaning a drive and sidewalks, could I get an idea on what I would charge, Thanks:blob4:

Not trying to be a smart arse but - Charge what you need to make profit.
Its the same as anything else. You need to know your costs. Decide what equipment you will buy and how much it will cost to run per hour. Put in the rest of your overhead. Add your profit %. That is cost per hour. Practice a few drives for timing and go for it.

Just don't get them wet by spraying with the washer. Good way to remove toes
