I have never done one. If it was me, I would figure out how long it might take...charge your hourly rental materials.

$80 - $100 an hr

If you've never power washed wood before i suggest you test it on your own, wood is easy to damage if you don't know what your doing, last thing you want to do is buy a new deck.
