How Much Does Pressure Washing Cost in Ontario?

Pressure washing is a quick, effective method to clean exterior surfaces. It can eliminate stains, organic debris and mildew from vinyl, brick, wood and roof shingles.

Whether it’s your home or business, power washing can immediately improve the appearance of your building.

Pressure washing is an affordable way to give a house a facelift, without the hassle of remodeling. But a lot of homeowners will never schedule these services since they believe they are too costly or not necessarily worth the price.

So let’s look at the standard cost of power washing so you aren’t one of those homeowners who doesn’t see the value of this service.


A pressure washing company in Ontario is going to bill you by the hour or based on the size of the job. Sometimes, a local company may offer flat rates for their jobs. This simplifies their pricing, but it is definitely not the standard.

Standard costs of pressure washing may vary a little across the country, but they should be pretty standardized throughout Ontario.

This cleaning process works well on most household surfaces, so we’ll cover the average price of pressure washing by the surface to be cleaned.


The cost for homes or residential buildings and small offices or storefronts is somewhere between $0.35 and $0.70 per square foot of surface area, with the mean cost being $0.45 per square foot. This will put the average price somewhere near $225 for a small home, although this price can definitely be increased based on the size of your home.


Wood is much softer than vinyl, brick and most other building materials, so you have to be careful not to dig into it. This is a situation where enlisting a professional for deck cleaning or for patio cleaning is much less risky than trying to do the job yourself. Prepare to pay somewhere between $100 and $300 for most decks and patios in Ontario.


Did you know that your home’s roof can be pressure washed? Like with wood, it takes special knowledge and techniques to protect delicate roof shingles – although many roofing materials, like tin, can withstand high pressure washing. The Ontario power washing service you choose will have different tips for their sprayers to accommodate the type of roof on your home. This service costs anywhere between $250 and $600.


Vinyl and wood fencing often develop mildew after awhile, and mud and dirt clings to these types of surfaces. For $150 to $300, you can have your fences power washed so that they look brand new.


Concrete is easy to power wash, and it is a very quick way to eliminate stains. You can pay as little as $0.08 per square foot for pressure washing a driveway, or up to $0.35 for power washing sidewalks with professional grade concrete detergent.


AsLike we said, the price of power washing can vary based on several different factors. Here are some of the factors that can impact the price of your service:

  • The Company You Choose – A company with more experience, more years in business, or one that offers guaranteed results could charge a little more than their competitor. Reputation means a lot, but that doesn’t mean a new company won’t do a great job.
  • The Service – The total amount of work that is needed for each job can impact the price of the service somewhat. Roofs are trickier sometimes, versus vinyl siding which is much more popular and easier to do. Residential fencing requires more attention to detail. All these factors are figured into your estimate.
  • Size of the Structure – The total square footage of the surface is the most common factor that affects cost. However, most fences are relatively small in area but more tedious to clean. Likewise, concrete with curbs or stone edging can raise the price of a small surface.
  • Severity of the Cleaning Needs – Stained and soiled surfaces will need much more time and attention than ones that just need dust and dirt removed. For example, oil stains may require detergents to get rid of them, while removing mildew from vinyl usually only requires high pressure water.
  • Where You Live – Prices are just higher in certain areas of Ontario. The closer you live to a large city or a wealthy suburb, the more you can likely plan to pay for power washing. Plus, the availability of power washing companies – or lack thereof – can elevate the price as well.
  • Demand – The time of year may impact your price, as many homeowners opt to have pressure washing as part of their spring cleaning, or after a big storm that left debris scattered on the exterior of their home.


Before you commit to a company or Ontario pressure washing service, check around to see who friends and family may have hired before. You’ll likely get some very good recommendations.

From there, it’s essential to get estimates from 2-3 companies near you. Any more than that can be an overwhelming amount of information, but you certainly don’t want to trust just one company for an honest estimate.

When you get the results of these estimates, one may be priced by the hour and another one by the job. Sometimes this can be complicated and hard to compare, so it’s recommended to ask questions like “How long do you think the service will take?” This question will help to better compare estimates that are priced with different strategies.

Don’t forget that price is just one factor in deciding who to hire. You could see a wide range of prices in all of the estimates that you receive, but it isn’t often recommended to choose the cheapest one. Look deeper to discover if this is a sales price or if the company prices its services lower for another reason.

Once you have weighed the price vs. other factors like experience and guarantees, you can make an informed choice about the right company to perform your pressure washing services.
