    Pressure washing is usually timed by the hour, so if you have a 4,000 sq ft ' house, it will take about 4 hours. It also depends on the shape of your house, ranch vs stories. Remember to protect your plants.

  • It depends on the size and design of your house. The average is 1-2 hours.

    It depends on the size and how much prep work is needed. My house is 75 x 35, 3 stories, so I hired it done because my pressure washer isn't strong enough to get up to the top of on the ends. Including covering plants and moving furniture, then uncovering, it took less than 4 hours.

    Hello. It depends on the size in square footage of your house.


    One alternative you might want to consider if you have a garden hose is wet and forget.


    It is a fabulous siding cleaner. We have an area of our house that is very tall and dangerous to reach on a ladder with our pressure washer

    The wet and forget works from a hose spray application it was able to reach our high peaks and all signs of dirt and mildew were erased from our siding in a matter of time.


    We purchased the hose end formulation to spray our two story home without a ladder and it covers 2000sf for about $37.00.

    We rent a very strong pressure washer from ABC rental. We are able to complete all the pressure washing in a day. The house is around 3000 sq ft. But that also includes a concrete patio and a front porch decking. You can see my post for before and afters:

    Hi Elena, it really depends on the size of the house and how fast you work, hope this helps

    The amount of time it takes to pressure wash a typical house ranges from about 30 minutes to 2 hours. An additional 15 to 30 minutes of setup and pack up time is also needed. Pressure washing has two parts – applying the cleaning liquids and then rinsing (pressure washing) the exterior.

    about 30 minutes to 2 hours

    It can take anywhere from an hour to several hours depending on how dirty the house is, if there is mold and mildew etc.

    The size of a house is the main factor that would determine the time required to complete the job. Small houses of around 1200 to 1500 square feet can take approximately 30 minutes of pressure washing, if you are somewhat experienced. Larger homes can sometimes take from 2 to 3 hours of washing. For example, a 1200 to 2000 square foot house may take between 30 to 45 minutes, 2000 to 2500 one story house may take between 45 to 60 minutes and a larger house of 3500 to 5000 square feet two-story building can take around 1 hr 15 min to 2 hours of washing.

    The number of workers washing your house also determines how fast the cleaning process will take. Many workers would mean sharing of duties. This simplifies the whole process, making it fast and efficient.

    Size and the amount of dirt and algae are the factors. I don't believe anyone can do it in 30 minutes and get and whole house clean. One side yes. Whole house no. I would venture closer to 2 hours.

  • Depends on big the house is and how fast you work.
