Power Washing Equipment
From at home power washers to commercial power washing equipment costing $8,000+ there is a lot that goes into the seemingly simple tasks of cleaning via pressurized water.
Depending on the job the first question is how much pressure do you need to get a good clean? The most common things to pressure wash is concrete, so we’re talking drive ways, sidewalks, parking lots, etc. Unfortunately it’s easily one of the hardest things to clean. A large majority of power washers create 1300-1700 pounds per square in of pressure (PSI) but in order to make any considerable difference in the cleanliness of concrete you’ll need 2000 to 3000 PSI and a flow of as least 2.5 gallons per minute.
Don’t get confused though, because more pressure isn’t always better especially if you’re trying to clean household surfaces. Too much pressure and you can very easily start damaging things.
The next choice is whether or not to use an electric or gas-powered model. Even small models that are gas-powered can offer up to 50% more power than their electric counterpart. For at home application your best bet is either a small gas-powered pressure washer or the most powerful electric version. This will be the sweat spot so you can clean your house while still having the power to somewhat clean any concrete.
Accessories like nozzles also play a big role in any cleaning job. To clean concrete you’ll need a high-pressure nozzle with a wide-angle that sweeps for rinsing.
Commercial Pressure Washing Prices
Charges will either be determined with an hourly rate or by square feet. Another factor in price will of course be the material and equipment needed to clean the desired area. But typically speaking these numbers below should give you a good estimate for residential and commercial pressure washing prices in Chicago, Illinois.
Commercial establishments will be charged $0.02 to $0.30 per square feet for new constructions. Drive-thru’s are charged per lane of washing, garages are between $0.03 to $0.20 per square foot and parking spaces between $8 to $20. These rates will give you a rough idea of the pricing. However, these prices vary depending on the contractor.
