How Long Does It Take To Pressure Wash A Driveway?


What's up, everybody! My name is Justin, and this is Forever Self-Employed. Today, we're diving into a common question: How long does it take to pressure wash a driveway? This question often comes up because the footage you see on our channel is usually sped up. Many of you want to know the real-time duration of a job like this to better understand pricing and expectations. So, let's break it down.

The Process of Pressure Washing a Driveway

In short, for a standard-sized driveway, the process usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour. The actual time can vary based on the driveway's condition. Here's a detailed look at the process:

  1. Pre-Treatment: We start by applying a chemical pre-treatment to the driveway. This chemical helps break down dirt and grime, making the cleaning process faster and more effective.

  2. Surface Cleaning: The next step involves using a surface cleaner, like the 20-Inch BE Whirl Away Surface Cleaner from Southeast Softwash. This tool ensures an even and thorough clean.

  3. Rinse and Cut-In: After cleaning, we rinse the driveway and handle areas the surface cleaner couldn't reach, such as edges near the grass.

  4. Post-Treatment (if necessary): If any lines or stubborn stains remain, we apply a post-treatment with the same chemical used in the pre-treatment to ensure a pristine finish.

Equipment and Efficiency

We use a three-and-a-half-gallon-per-minute, 4,000 PSI pressure washer for our jobs. With two people working, this setup allows us to complete a standard driveway in the mentioned time frame. If you have a smaller pressure washer or fewer people, expect the job to take a bit longer.
