How Long Does It Take to Power Wash a House?

When considering how long it will take to power wash your home, there is one key question to ask yourself: Who is providing the power washing service?

Why? Your home is your largest investment. Trusting the right person to do the job is more important than choosing the cheapest or fastest option.

They have a team behind them who have cleaned 7,000 homes this season and over 92,672 homes to date. By choosing Perfect Power Wash, you are choosing the team who guarantees to deliver the best results possible, or your money back.

At the end of the day, our technicians will work as fast as quality work allows. Read below as we dig deeper into what determines how long it will take a professional technician to clean your home.

What Makes Cleaning Your Home Unique

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 impossible 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, when a Perfect Power Wash technician arrives, they consider these questions regarding your home:

  • 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?

All these questions, in one way or another, relate either to the size or the condition of your home. After assessing your home, they will be able to give you a better idea of how long the process will take.

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 take longer. While this may seem obvious, larger homes require added attention to ensure they’re cleaned properly. 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.

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. If you haven’t had it cleaned in 15 years, it will take much longer. If you accidentally spilled red wine on it, or your kids tracked in mud, these spots will require extra attention.

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, then will it take less time. If your home has a significant algae growth and spots that need extra attention, the power washing process slows down.

The Perfect Process

Once your Perfect Power Wash technician arrives at your home, they will have a better understanding of how the size and cleanliness will determine the time it will take to clean your home. Whether it takes 1 hour or 5 hours, your technician will provide your home with the best possible results.

No matter if your house is big, small, clean, or dirty, rest easy. Our technicians will take as much time as necessary to provide your home with perfect results.
