Pressure Washing Services
To remove stubborn dirt and stains, nothing beats pressure washing! This powerful cleaning technique makes it easy toremove dust, mildew, and salt buildup, as well as oil, grease, paint, and graffiti, from your driveway, deck, facade, or roof.
Safety is at the heart of our philosophy: all our technicians are required to follow industry best practices, and they all have an insurance policy covering potential damages.
Anyone can be a pressure washer, but only a professional can guarantee the work gets done safely and properly.
Why use a pressure washing service?
Pressure washing can give a second life to all types of surfaces. It’s the best way to get rid of oil stains in your parking lot or that unsightly graffiti you’ve been putting up with for far too long.
Pressure washers are also ideal for cleaning gutters and brick. Our experts can even restore your roof to its original beauty.
Our teams are equipped with gas pressure washers for situations that require them, and we have crane trucks or Skyjack for areas that are high up and difficult to reach.
Protection of persons and property
Safety is our top priority. Pressure washers are powerful enough to send gravel flying at high speeds toward nearby people, cars, or buildings. Improper use can cause serious injury as well as costly damage.
When they arrive on-site, our technicians begin by preparing the work surface to minimize hazards. In addition to being equipped with all necessary protective gear to prevent injuries, they have received extensive training on occupational health and safety rules.
Unlike individual contractors who occasionally offer cleaning services, our technicians also have an insurance policy in case of accidental damage to your property.
Time and energy savings
Some surfaces need to be cleaned by hand, but can you imagine hand-washing your driveway? Not only would it take you hours, but the result would fall well below your expectations.
Renting a machine would yield the same outcome. It would take a lot of time to properly calibrate and use the device, not to mention you’d run the risk of injuring yourself or breaking something.
Enlisting a professional company saves you time and energy. While our technicians are at work, you can concentrate on more important tasks, whether at home or at work.
Pressure washing 101
Pressure washing with hot and cold water
Pressure washers use a pressurizing pump to spray water at room temperature. A detergent is often added to ensure a deeper clean.
Hot water pressure washing is more effective in outdoor applications to remove dirt, grime, grease, and mildew, and on certain surfaces, such as concrete. This technique is commonly used on commercial vehicles and entryways.
A professional will know which equipment is most appropriate for your needs and the type of surface to be cleaned.
Electric vs. gasoline
Electric pressure washers must be connected to a power outlet to operate, which reduces their range. On the other hand, they produce less noise and pollution.
Gas pressure washers are cordless, so they’re more versatile. They also tend to be more powerful. However, the risk of carbon monoxide emissions makes them risky to use in poorly ventilated areas.

The main uses of pressure washing
Pressure washing is effective for tackling tough stains such as oil, grease, chipped paint, hard water, and mildew.
Cleaning outdoor surfaces
Pressure washing is also compatible with a wide range of outdoor materials: concrete, wood, vinyl, metal, brick, and stucco. However, it’s important to be familiar with your equipment and the targeted surfaces to avoid problems.
Whether you want to restore the look of brick or remove dirt and dust from stone and wooden boards, pressure washing with water will do wonders in just minutes.
Pressure washing is particularly well suited to graffiti removal, even on brick. You can choose professional products adapted to the size and type of surface in question and the type of ink or paint that was used. In the most difficult cases, such as removing graffiti from cement and porous surfaces in general, it is sometimes necessary to use a sandblaster.
Cleaning roofs and gutters
Over time, roofing can lose its luster and become host to bacteria that attack the shingles. If left untreated, the roof may age prematurely. Poorly maintained roofs are particularly vulnerable to bacteria, moss, and fungi. Pressure washing can also clear gutters and roof drains of plant debris and residue that accumulate each season.
What does professional pressure washing include?
- Determine the type of surface being cleaned and what needs to be removed.
- Secure the work area by removing anything that could be damaged or projected by the pressure washer and protect anything that cannot be moved. Inspect all drains and take measures to prevent clogging.
- Decide whether to add a cleaning solution based on what they have been asked to remove.
If a cleaning solution proves necessary, wait for the solution to take effect before proceeding with the final rinse.

How much does pressure washing cost?
A professional pressure wash costs about $0.50 per square foot or between $30 and $100 per hour, depending on the size, type of work and equipment required. However, professionals typically charge a flat rate of $100 to $200 on average.
In addition, cleaning with hot water or the use of cleaning solution adds slightly to the price of the bill.
You can purchase or rent pressure washers and use them to clean almost any outdoor surface. These devices pressurize water from a garden hose and send it out through a spray wand. For occasional use, an electric or gas-powered pressure washer may be suitable.
Labor costs for pressure washing
Pressure washing costs $50 to $100 per hour per technician. If you are dealing with three technicians, the rate will be about $300 per hour, for example. On the other hand, the job will take three times less time to complete than with a single cleaner.
Price of pressure washing per square foot
Pressure washing costs between $0.10 and $0.50 per square foot. However, larger projects usually cost less per square foot than smaller projects.
For example, having a 300 square foot deck pressure washed may cost $0.40 per square foot. However, if you’re also having 2,000 square feet of siding cleaned, you’ll probably only owe half the expected rate. Typically, contractor pricing includes a minimum fee of about $100 that covers equipment, licenses, insurance, travel and other fixed overhead costs.
Commercial pressure washing prices
Commercial pressure washing costs between $0.10 and $1.00 per square foot. For residential, prices rarely exceed $0.50 per square foot. Services can overlap. For example, you can have a mixed commercial and residential building cleaned.
Also, hard-to-reach areas, such as large buildings, can cost twice as much to clean.

We recommend using a pressure washer to clean the roof and gutters about once a year. The best time to do this is late fall, to remove dead leaves, or early spring, to inspect the roof after winter.
Pressure washing is a cost-effective way to spruce up your home and help it last longer. Cleaning the roof and facade with a pressure washer is a great idea if you’re planning to sell. The added value of an exterior rejuvenated by a pressure wash will far exceed the few hundred dollars it costs.
It is important to have your parking lot and garage thoroughly cleaned at least once a year, either with a pressure washer or a street broom. Our experts determine the necessary equipment during the evaluation visit.
Pressure washers typically deliver 1,200 to 4,000 pounds per square inch (psi). Some suppliers use the term high-pressure cleaning for pressures over 3,000 psi, but the service remains the same.
