There are 2 great reasons to learn how to power wash like a pro even before starting your own power washing business: For experience because you do not want to damage the surrounding area, especially high pressure areas (fruits/trees/floors etc) – you are not a professional and want to know the basics before risking doing damage and/or injuring anyone (and you are not there to make a fast buck). The second reason is to earn a living – you know that you have your own business and you have to make money at it. If you want to earn a living, you have to know what you are doing and be willing to put in the effort.
You’ll need a couple of different tools for your power washing business. You’ll need a large, heavy duty, preferably enclosed truck that has a winch – this will ensure that your clothes are not damaged during the journey (and you can also add the appropriate lifting gear to get your load safely inside if need be), some sort of vacuum cleaner and a power washer with nozzle attachment (most of these units come equipped with a nozzle extension). As you will be using electricity to power the device you will need an electrician. These people should be easily found in your local phone directory and can usually take you in for a consultation at no cost – after all it is your business after all.
Once you have all of this equipment you’ll need to choose what sort of job you’d like to undertake and go out and buy the materials needed for that task. The more materials you have, the cheaper the job will be and the more time it will take. You may even find yourself needing to borrow materials from friends or family and that should be a good indication that you’re on the right track.
