    kinda new to powerwashing/ soft washing. im mainly doing hard stone surfaces but have been getting asked to do more. right now a guy wants a white vinyl fence done that has dirt splashed up on the bottom and the green mold etc growing on it . can I just lower the pressure and powerwash it all off? will that come out ok and not damage the shine?? or....

    is it best to soft wash it with a pump sprayer and solution and then just use a hose or powerwasher on low pressure to wash it all off ? problem is I have no clue what chemical to use and what mixure. how long to let it sit? if it starts to dry will it stain? etc etc or can I just use a homedepot vinyl housing wash and follow the instructions will that be good enough ill attach some pics

    how much to charge and how much solution do I need ????

    for a 6' high solid only doing one side cause the other sides is neigbhors at 12sections about 8' wide each so 96ft


    then a 4' high section @ 18 sections about 8ft so so 144 ft but its an open fence and i have to do both sides with pieces running up and down. hopefully the pics load and I can get some ideas of how to do it and how much to charge

    im in north nj so prices could be alittle higher here.

    gotta resize pics but ive been trying to use online to figure cost per sq foot but it seems kinda hight in price once you add it all up..

    the 6x8' for solid would be 48 sqft x 12 sections is 576 sqft
    the 4'x8' is open so do you just calculate solid and then its about 4x4' 16sq x 2 sides is 32sqft x 18 sections comes to 576sqft again lol . or do pros come in assay I soft washing this takes a couple hours and its this prices or . this type of fence cost $10, $20,$30,$40 a side or section ???

    That's about $800-1000 job for me. Per sq ft about .23 cents. More or less depending on situation

    We softwash no pressure washing. Would take about two hours total if that

    I mis read you're measurements. $300 is reasonable but we would try to package it with a house clean, driveway clean etc

    I have done a few fences I always use bleach and I use my Hot water washer
    Hot water is the key cleaning a vinyl fence
