Pressure Washing?

I didnt know where to put this. Ive never done any business with pressure washing. 1 of my customers wants me to give her a price on doing her house and her patio. Can you guys tell me how I do an estimate on pressure washing?

"Ive never done any business with pressure washing"

Does this mean you do not have a PW.
Tell her--" Mrs. Valued customer. I am a professional at lawncare and landscape maintenance. The best advice I can give you is to call a professional that will wash you home without doing any damage to it and that has the proper insurance coverage to do that type of work."

Yes I have a PW. Ive used it many time's, Just not on a customer's home. I know how to use it. I know how close I can get without doing any damage. Im including this in my business this time. I have a PW, why not make some $$ with it?

OK in that case just what you need to make a profit per hour times how long it will take you.

One of our commericial strip centers asked us today to bid on pressure washing the concrete and "scraping the gum" off monthly. They want one contractor to handle everything including trash pick-up daily. Thought I would help bump this along to see if there are any pressure washing lawn cutters.

It's extra income for me and get a lot of calls during the season for it, If you are doing driveways or brick pavers you can offer a concrete sealer application for an extra charge

i do some in the off season, it's a pretty easy upsale. once you have gotten to know your clients, you know which ones will be receptive. i pretty much stick to concrete drives and walkways though. i have done a few houses, but would rather be in and out.
