    I posted this on powerwashingsite.com 3 days ago and have not received a response. Can anyone here help me with information on residential power washing.

    I'm currently doing lawnmowing for residential customers, and I would like to add Powerwashing of houses, driveways, sidewalks etc. I see that someone has quoted a price of $1.00 per linear foot for house sides. What about driveways and sidewalks?

    Also, I would like to know if a 3000 PSI Troy-Built portable washer would be adaquate for doing these jobs. It runs $449.00 at Lowe's. I have limited funds, otherwise I would buy a better one. Would this machine be OK for starting that part of the business, and then graduate to a better one later if the work becomes steady?

    I would also like to know how you protect your clothes and skin from the chemicals. Do you wear some kind of rubber suit.....or what?
    Thanks for any assistance.
