I've only done driveways and patios. Driveways average 75 dollars. It takes me less than 30 minutes. I use a heavy detergent soap and Home Depot bleach. But I've read post where guys/gals use some stronger stuff for stubborn stains. Check out some of the "dedicated" pressure washing/cleaning sites.

What are the average size of the driveways you pressure wash (square feet). The ones im looking at doing are about 1000 square feet.

That is about the average. If you were to pressure wash, would you use a surface cleaner?

No need for chemicals on the brick house. On the concrete you may want to invest into a surface cleaner. Im not sure if your pressure washer can run one but defnetly check it out if this is something you plan on doing often.

what are some good chemicals to use on concrete to get dirt and such off. People have told me to use outdoor bleach and lime 101,, but thought i would ask you guys also. What is a good chemical to use on getting oil off also

So would straight water(no chemicals) get alot of stuff off?

so a 20x60 driveway would be 1,200 sq ft at $.10 sq ft= $120 right
