Do you ever get the feeling that your to-do list just isn't getting any shorter? You might be able to tick a few things off the list by hiring a professional high pressure cleaning service.

Here's how they can help you, and how to go about hiring one.

What are high pressure cleaning services?

c
A high pressure cleaning service helps you to get your home outdoor surfaces looking sparkling clean. Using a high pressure water spray, a high pressure cleaner will attempt to remove any dirt, mould, oil or grease from the surface of your choice.

What does a high pressure cleaner do?

High pressure cleaning is best suited to large outdoor areas that won't incur any damage by getting wet. A few common areas that a high pressure cleaner will be happy to wash for you include your:

Driveway

Organising a cleaner to jet wash your driveway every six to twelve months will help keep your driveway clean from moss, dust and car grease.

Patio and pavement

Garden patios and pavements get dirty quickly, and a high pressure wash will help to remove moss, mould and pollution stains restoring the slabs to their former glory.

Wall and fence

Overtime outside walls and fences can all suffer damage from the natural elements, which is why a high pressure wash will help to rid them of any moss, mould or dust.

Roof

A dirty or clogged up roof can cause many problems down the line, which makes maintaining it an important task. A pressure washer cleaner will remove any debris from your roof and drainpipes, which can help to protect your roof for longer.

How do I hire a pressure cleaning service?

A simple online search will reveal hundreds of listings of high pressure washing cleaners in your area. You can also use websites like Airtasker or Oneflare to find a cleaner near you.

How much does a pressure cleaner cost?

The cost of your high pressure washer cleaner will depend on the item or surface that is being cleaned. This can impact the time it takes to clean the surface especially if any additional treatments are needed.

  • $100-$150 for up to 30m2
  • $150-$180 for 40m2
  • $180-$200 for 50m2

What to consider when hiring a pressure washing service:

  • Time frame. How long will it take to get the job done?
  • Equipment. Is the cleaner using high quality equipment?
  • Chemicals. Will any harmful chemicals be used during the process?
  • Insurance. Is the cleaner insured if they have an accident on your property?

How should I prepare for a pressure cleaning service?

Before your pressure washing clean, make sure to move any items out of the way that you don't want to get wet or damaged. It can also be a good idea to turn off any electrics that the water could come into contact with. If the pressure wash is taking place near any doors or windows, its good practice to cover them with a plastic sheet.

Do I need to be at home for a pressure washing clean?

As most pressure washing services take place outside, you don't have to worry about being at home while it's happening. It can be helpful to be there at the beginning of the job to show the cleaner exactly what you want washing and where the water and electricity supplies are.

Frequently asked questions about high pressure cleaning

How often should I do high pressure cleaning?

High-pressure cleaning is a type of deep clean, which means you don't need to do it as often as you would do your everyday household chores. As a general thumb, once a year should suffice for most surfaces.

What are the benefits of high pressure washing?

High pressure cleaning is much faster and more cost-effective than routine cleaning. It also eliminates the need for harsh chemicals that could cause harm to yourself or the environment.

How long does a pressure washing clean take?

This depends on the surface and the severity of the stains and dirt. Some jobs may take a little over 30 minutes while larger jobs can take up to half a day to complete.

Do I have to rent the pressure washing machine?

A professional pressure washing cleaner will usually have their own equipment, so you will not need to rent a machine yourself. If you'd rather do the job yourself though there are many ways to rent a pressure washing machine. This can be more cost-effective than hiring a cleaner, but using a professional will save you time and any accidents from using new machinery.
