    I'm curious how many out there offer power washing services, and if so, what equiptment are you using, and what are ya'll charging? I have a relatively small residential lawn care biz. I recently bought a small 6.5 hp 2600 psi washer for myself, and was thinking of incorporating powerwashing as a service to my homeowning customers. Any input would be appreciated!
    Thanks R&R :jester: :jester:

    advertise for drive way/ side walk cleaning and vinyl siding cleaning. very easy to do with a pressure washer. as far as fees go, charge enough to be compensated for your time fairly. I would try to get $40-$60/hr

    Thanks Appalachia,

    I was thinking about $45-$50 hr. What kind of washer are you using?

    I love my power washer. As far as I go, got a tool to make some money with? Use it to make some money.

    There is one company in my town that does it. Looks like they do pretty well, and I imagine that you could charge a lot for it. Just make sure to check with your insurance company about it, and be careful with vinal siding, it could break/crack pretty easily. Good luck with it and let us know what happens.
