How long does it take to power wash a house? In short, the amount of time it takes to power wash a house is dependent on several factors. Every home is unique, from its square footage to the materials it’s made from, making it difficult to give an exact estimate. For example, a 2,000 square foot home can take anywhere from one to three hours to power wash. Why? Well, in order to get a true understanding of the time it will take to power wash a home, these questions must be answered first:
- What type of siding do you have?
- When was your home last professionally cleaned?
- Does one side have a lot of algae or dirt?
- Are there any hard-to-reach areas?
- Are there trees around your home?
Size Plays a Factor
Unsurprisingly, size plays a large part in how long it takes to professionally power wash a home. If you compare a 1,500 square foot house to one that’s 4,500 square feet, the latter will obviously take longer. While this seems obvious, larger homes require added attention to clean them propertly. Multiple stories and a handful of hard-to-reach areas can also add time to the job.
Perfect Power Wash’s Operations Manager Anthony Spena says, “Yes, the size of your home is one of the first things to consider when estimating how long it will take. However, we can’t say that 10 extra square feet will add ten minutes to the job. It depends how dirty those extra ten feet are.”
Considering Cleanliness as a Factor
The condition of your home has just as much of an impact on time as the size of your home.
For example, compare it to having your carpet cleaned. If you have it cleaned monthly, chances are it won’t take long to achieve the desired results. It will take much longer if you haven’t had it cleaned in 15 years. If you accidentally spilled red wine on it, or your kids tracked in mud, these spots will require extra attention, of course.
The same variables affect the process of cleaning the exterior of your home. If you have your home power washed on an annual basis, which is recommended, it will take less time. If your home has significant algae growth and spots that need extra attention, the power washing process slows down.
