Your home’s exterior needs a pick-me-up, but the pressure washing prices you’ve found simply don’t fit into your budget. Fortunately, the following 3 tips can lower the cost of your next pressure wash, so you can have your cake and eat it too!
1. Rent a washer
Buying a pressure washer is usually not the best way to go when you’re trying to save money. Though some people think that investing in the cost of buying one up front will save them over the years as rental fees start to pile up, it’s not quite that simple.
For starters, pressure washer prices vary considerably depending on where you try to buy from. Many big-box stores carry pressure washers, as do home maintenance and hardware stores, but they are very inconsistent in terms of quality, price, and power. For this reason, it is impossible to recommend buying a particular brand or model, since the stores in your area could be carrying anything. Ordering online is not the way to go either, because shipping prices will have to factor in the considerable weight and cumbersome size of the item, which can be very expensive.
This means that you will be walking into the store blind, and big box stores won’t have the expertise you need to recommend a quality model.
Renting is not only going to be cheaper the day-of, but it also gives you some other advantages in terms of equipment and instruction. You will be able to talk to the rental shop’s owner to find an appropriate model for your needs. It is also very likely that you’ll get a walk-through of how the machine works in person – after all, the rental shop owner wants you to return their equipment in good condition, so it’s in his best interest to teach you how to work it properly. Since he’s also going to have to face you again when you return the washer, it wouldn’t make sense for him to give you a faulty unit. The rental shop owner has much more incentive to steer you in the right direction: a big box-store employee can just point you towards the first thing he sees, and then disappear without any consequences or confrontation. In the end, renting will save you money up front, and ensure you get the right tool and training for the job.
2. Buy in bulk.
One of the simplest way to save money is to buy in bulk. We aren’t recommending that you buy a bunch of pressure washers here. This suggestion refers to hiring professional pressure washers, and scheduling a number of cleanings at once, or by bundling your total homecare package together through our full service suite. Window Genie offers a number of bundled cleaning and home maintenance packages, and it’s one of the best ways to lower the pressure washing prices you are quoted. You can save up to 30% by bundling different services together!

3. Keep your gutters in perfect working order.
One of the most popular services that our pressure washing professionals are hired for is blasting muck off siding, driveways, window sills, and decks. There are many reasons why this muck is allowed to accumulate, but one of the most common ones that our professionals see is dysfunctional gutter systems. When clogged, rainwater is allowed to overflow. Water tainted by dirt, pest droppings, and clogged-gutter grime dribbles down the exterior of your home and mars every surface it touches. Sometimes, it patters into garden beds and kicks up mud.
If you want to save money and lower pressure washing prices, then minimize the amount of mess that needs to be cleaned off by keeping your gutters in shape. Window Genie offers a gutter cleaning service as well, so you can save money using the bundle system discussed earlier, and then save even more by reducing the amount of time your future pressure washing job takes.
